Maple Games has announced that they are making a game based on the comic series MIND MGMT created by Matt Kindt and published by Dark Horse. The game will be designed by Sen-Foong Lim and Jay Cormier.
The game has been in the designing phase for some time and while details are limited, this is one that’s really intriguing due to the source material.
MIND MGMT began being published in 2012 and is about a true crime writer named Meru who begins a search about a mysterious flight and discovers a secret government agency of spies, espionage, and psychic abilities. The comic was also optioned as a movie by 20th Century Fox in December of 2012 with Ridley Scott and David J. Kelly beginning pre-production in January 2013 and a television adaptation was announced in 2017.
Control the streets of New York and bring power to your family in this summer’s The Godfather: A New Don. Designed by Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim, The Godfather: A New Don is a game for 3-6 players that sees each player taking control of one of the major mafia families, each trying to assert their power in the streets of 1950’s New York in hopes of taking the reigns as the new kingpin of the criminal world. The game is playable in approximately 45 minutes.
The Godfather: A New Don is an area control board game with unique dice mechanics. Each round players will roll their individual pools of dice and decide what area of the city they’ll want to focus on trying to capture. Meanwhile, the current Don will be able to make players an offer they can’t refuse and steal dice from their limited supply. Staying on top proves difficult as every stolen die moves other players up the ladder toward taking over as Don, so the tension rises with each shake of the dice. With multiple ways to use each dice you roll, players will never find themselves at the mercy of the die, instead they’ll use what they roll to make their opponents beg for mercy.
