Did you know: A promotional board game titled “The Godfather Game” was released in 1971

‘The Godfather Game’ puts players in the roles of mob bosses vying for control of rackets in several neighborhoods. The game plays like Go, except that stones are bought for varying prices based on the area of the board they will be deployed to. Three decks of cards provide monetary income for buying more stones and also good and bad events that must be dealt with. Think of the game as Go combined with some aspects of Monopoly, notably the money and the Chance and Community Chest cards.

The game was issued in at least two editions – a standard rectangular box set, and a set packaged in a plastic violin case.

Interesting isn’t it?
