Welcome to Gangster City, where crimes can be lurking around any corner. The police department calls for assistance – numerous criminal cases in town are yet unsolved.
There are clues regarding each of them, but who will draw the right conclusions and shed light onto the darkness? Was the crook last seen at the theater or in a dark alley? And who can locate the correct weapon? Gangster City is a suspenseful deduction game for tough investigators.
At the start of the game, each player takes a card at random and faces it away from themselves in a plastic stand. Three cards are revealed face up. On a turn, you can either take a face-up card or the top card from the deck, or you can attempt to guess your suspect's characteristics. When you take a card, you hold it up next to your case card, then the other players tell you how many characteristics they have in common. You then place this card in front of you, rotating it so that the number on the outer edge of the card shows how many characteristics they share (0-3).
When you guess, if you're correct, you discard the case card and place a new one in the stand; if you're wrong, you continue the game as normal next turn. The first player to correctly solve two cases wins!
