awarded with the games prize
Rationale for the awarding of the prize.
In the face of a very strong year of games, certainly for many a surprise winner of my small alternative game prize awarded since 2001. "Gangster is, however, visually and graphically a very beautiful game, which converts the theme of the (picture-art) book of the same name by Robert Nippoldt, published last year by Gerstenberg Verlag, in a congenial way into a form of a game. A decidedly successful symbiosis of book and game. In addition, "Gangster" is also fully convincing in terms of game play and promises crackling suspense, especially in a two-person game.
