A Kickstarter I mentioned on a short while back just launched today. In The Mansky Caper, from Calliope Games, two to six players will aim to loot the mansion of mobster Al Mansky while the big boss is out of town. The game is for ages 8+ and plays in about 40-60 minutes. The crowdfunding project runs through February 10th and you can reserve a copy of the game (including shipping) at the $32.00 pledge level. If the project funds backers will receive their copies in May while a wider retail release will follow this summer.
Calliope Games announced today the launch of The Mansky Caper on Kickstarter. This Prohibition-era heist game, designed by Ken Franklin, offers a thrilling, press-your-luck adventure that is easy to teach and plays in under an hour.
The Manksy Caper is for 2-6 players ages 8+ and plays in 40-60 minutes. “Big Al” Mansky, the most ruthless and illustrious mob boss ever, is away on vacation and players take on the roles of colorful “Associates” robbing lavish rooms in Big Al’s mansion and dodging explosive booby traps! Each turn, navigate through Big Al Mansky’s mansion, cracking safes to reveal valuables, explosives, and thrilling plot twists. Share your loot with others in the same room, call in favors to perform skillful actions, and above all, decide when to stash your share at the getaway car before you hear a BOOM!
The Manksy Caper features captivating artwork by Matt Franklin in a premium presentation. It also includes five pre-assembled 3D cardboard safes from which to draw loot tokens, shiny plastic gems, drawstring cloth stash bags, a fully illustrated comic book which doubles as the rulebook, and hundreds of colorful tokens and markers. Even with components of the highest quality, The Manksy Caper remains incredibly affordable, with the Kickstarter pledge costing only $32 – domestic shipping included.
