Moving from fantasy to the streets of Sin City, players take on the role of an ‘enterprising’ entrepreneurs looking to make a killing in the Nevada desert. Built around a solid economic backbone, players combine gambling with spreading their influence as they aim to build their casinos across the strip – with light touch rules making plays devious and intuitive. One of the delights is the game explicitly allowing, if not actively encouraging, layers to engage in table talk. This includes threats and strategy all the way to making deals or payments, perfectly replicating the ‘anything goes’ hustle of the time. Muscle out your opposition, make off-the books trades, or try your luck in your rival’s houses to earn dough. Ruthless, relentless, and really, really great.
