About the event

Unboxing Thursdays we open, learn and play games as we add them to our library.

This Thursday we are playing and learning The Godfather & King's Life.

The Godfather Corleone's Empire: 7.3

Designer Eric Lang, known for his "dudes on a map" games, describes The Godfather: Corleone's Empire — a standalone big box board game with high-quality miniatures — as "thugs on a map".

In short, the game is a streamlined, confrontational worker placement game filled with murder and intrigue. You play as competing mafia families who are vying for economic control of the organized crime networks of New York City, deploying your thugs, your don, your wife, and your heir on the board to shake down businesses and engage in area-control turf wars.

Money, rackets, contracts, and special advantages (such as the union boss) are represented by cards in your hand, and your hand size is limited, with you choosing which extra cards to pay tribute to the don at the end of each of the five rounds. At the end of the game, though, cash is all that matters, and whoever has the most money wins.

The game also features drive-by shootings in which enemy tokens are removed from the board and placed face-down in the river.

King's Life: 6.3

A King just wants to have fun!

It's Monday in a King's Life, and laborious kingly duties have made for one irritable monarch. Good thing our fair ruler devotes every other day of the week to kingly delights.

Come Tuesday, it's up on his courtiers, you fair players, to pull his highness out of his fun. Each day left in the week brings different demands - a hunt! A feast! A tourney! A ball! The cunning courtier that can tickle the tyrant's fancy with his or her own grand plan will be in the king's good graces and enjoy a coveted seat on the royal council.

King's Life is a zany game of alliances and wit by Bruno Faidutti (Citadels, Incan Gold) and Gwenael Bouquin for up to EIGHT eager players - clock in at just 30 minutes. Enter this wacky world and get lost in the pomp and splendor befitting of only a king.

Join us Thursday, March 9th at 6:00 pm for our Unboxing Thursday Event. See ya soon!
