Navigating NYC’s Turf: Map Dynamics, Tokens, and Turf Wars

Hey everyone!

We’re thrilled to give you a behind-the-scenes look at one of the core features of our game: The vibrant map of NYC hoods and the strategic movements within it. Here’s a rundown of what you can expect:

1. NYC Hood Map We’ve recreated the iconic neighborhoods of New York City, from the bustling streets of Chinatown to the gritty avenues of Hell’s Kitchen. But it’s not just a map; each neighborhood holds power, influence, and potential risks for any mobster daring enough to tread there. The map:

2. Tokens: Your Hand in the Game Each player will move around the map with tokens, and each token corresponds to a unique set of cards. Think of it as your crew, your gang, or your hit squad. These tokens are crucial as they determine your strength, strategy, and influence in different hoods. Remember, different hoods have different vibes – and your choice of token could be the difference between conquering or being conquered. Here are the tokens for your family and for your rivals: The Cavallaro family:

3. Stack ‘Em Up In the mob world, there’s strength in numbers. In our game, players can stack multiple tokens together. Whether you’re looking to bolster your defenses or launch a major offensive against rival territories, stacking can be a game-changer. But use this tactic wisely, as over-extension can leave other areas vulnerable.

4. AI-Controlled Hoods: A Challenge Worth Taking Certain hoods are under AI control, representing other powerful factions in the city. Want to expand your influence? Challenge these hoods! Just ensure your deck is stacked right and your strategy is on point because the AI won’t give up its turf easily. And in a twist of fate, these AI mobs can launch attacks on player-controlled territories, keeping everyone on their toes.

In Conclusion: Our vision is to create an experience that captures the essence of mobster-era NYC. With our map dynamics, token movements, and engaging battles against the AI, we’re confident players will find endless hours of strategy, intrigue, and excitement. Stay tuned for more updates, and as always, keep your friends close, but your deck closer.
