The Mansky Caper Is An Offer You Can’t De-Fuse!

The Mansky Caper Is An Offer You Can’t De-Fuse!

Explosive New Tabletop Game Releasing Q3 2018

Redmond, WA – May 15, 2018: Calliope Games announces that The Mansky Caper will release in Q3 of 2018.  This Prohibition-era heist game, designed by Ken Franklin, offers a thrilling, press-your-luck adventure that is easy to teach and plays in under an hour.  Featuring immersive art, pre-built three-dimensional components, and amazingly interactive game play, The Mansky Caper will blow you away! Each game of The Mansky Caper is an exciting heist for 2 – 6 players 8+ years old which plays in less than an hour.

It’s 1925. You and your Family of Associates have been trying to get respect for years. But the richest mobster in the country, Al Mansky, has been cramping your style. Al’s a bit eccentric; he doesn’t trust the cops or banks, so all his loot is in his mansion, guarded by a diabolical security system of explosive traps. The good news is that he’s out of town.

It would be a shame if something happened to all that loot, but a Family (working together) that bested Al would make quite a name for itself. Of course, the most fame – and (dare we say) leadership of the Family – goes to the person who walks away from the job with the most loot.

Your colleagues may not agree with you – but you all owe each other favors. Calling in the right favor at the right time is what leadership is all about in this business. The key is to work together to help yourself – and don’t get blown up!

The Manksy Caper features captivating artwork by Matt Franklin in its a premium presentation, which also includes five 3D cardboard safes from which to draw loot tokens, shiny plastic gems, drawstring cloth stash bags, a fully illustrated comic book which doubles as the rulebook, and hundreds of colorful tokens and markers.  Even with components of the highest quality, The Manksy Caper remains incredibly affordable at an anticipated price of $40.
