I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford to just go out and buy every game that comes out onto the market. Even games that fit a particular interest grouping of mine, there’s just so many, and I only have so much storage space and gaming time, I like to know what I’m getting into before I put my money down. That’s why it’s so helpful when a company puts the rules for their games online. Well, Fantasy Flight Games has done that for New Angeles, their new game set in the Android universe.
In the game, 4-6 players take on the role of heads of one of the megacorporations in the city. Your goal? Make money, of course! To do that, you’ll have to bribe, bluff, wheel, and deal with your other players. Sometimes, working together is in your best interests. Other times, backstabbing is the best way to go. Whatever you do, you all must make sure the city is nice and stable. If some sort of panic were to break out, the government would surely step in, and that wouldn’t be good for your profit margins.
Check out the rules and see if you’ll be picking up a copy when it’s released next Thursday.
