I was born in the suburbs of Chicago (Bloomingdale, to be specific). And while my family moved to St. Louis just before I went into 4th grade, there’s still part of me that feels that Chicago is “home.” My mom’s side of the family is there, so we would go visit a lot. … And now I’m hungry for Portillo’s. Anyway, Chicago certainly has quite a history with organized crime. It’s that culture that is tapped into in Road to Infamy, a new board game that’s up on Kickstarter now.
You are the head of a crime family in the city. Everyone wants to be in control of the most lucrative areas and businesses, but there’s only so many good gangsters to go around. Players make bids on the black market to recruit such gangsters, acquire the best illegal items, and bribe the cops to look the other way when it comes to your operation.
The campaign’s more than 2x funded with still 26 days to go.
