It’s no coincidence that some of the most popular television series’ in recent years have been Breaking Bad, Narcos, Sons of Anarchy, Weeds, and The Wire. We’re captivated by the darkness, we lurk in the shadows hoping to catch a glimpse of the criminal underworld and their illicit activities… As long as we can do it from the safety of our own homes. The only real problem with this approach, even the greatest shows have to come to an end. When that happens, how do you indulge your dark side without the risk of living dangerously.
DEAL: American Dream is your chance to become the leader of a criminal organization vying for control over the illicit drug trade, in an epic tabletop strategy game.
In order to win, you’ll need to earn respect through the production, sale, and trade of dope while expanding your operation by any means necessary. At it’s core, DEAL is about alliances and betrayal. Players have to negotiate, fix prices, establish distribution networks, trust each other and, of course, backstab one another in the name of the almighty dollar.
If you’re anything like me or the 405 backers that successfully funded the game on Kickstarter, you won’t want to miss this exclusive Q&A session with, Tristan, the creator of DEAL.
