I know, I know, but I just can’t get enough of Fantasy Flight lately. We had a grand introduction of your favorite Red Viper and the Martells a few days ago, and now FF is leading us out of the Summer Sea shores into a Mafia town, where players are divided into two large groups, the civilians and the Mafia members.
Each player is further assigned a specific role that carries a special ability. The two groups must utilize the scattered clues to discover everyone’s true identity, and eliminate the real foes in order to survive in the ruthless community. And to make things extra delicious, the game also features two alternative modes: Yakuza and Loner. In the Yakuza mode, another criminal clan is added to fight against the Mafia and the civilians, while in the Loner mode a powerful role that leans to the Mafia’s side brings twists to the civilians’ mission.
Mafia: Vendetta is a party game for 7 to 17 players, and is expected to be released in Q3 2015.
