Product Description

San Quentin Kings is a resource management game based on the economic system of an American prison. Be the leader of your own prison gang directing members through a series of fights that gain control of different aspects of the prison economy. Controlling the economy gets players respect and other important advantages. Gain the most respect and you will be crowned the King of San Quentin.

The game is played in 3 rounds or 'years'. Each year the players have a number of different actions to choose from. Acquire prison knives, get commissary, recruit new members; each year as leader of your prison gang you will have to decide how to best use your members to win the most fights. The more fights you win the more prison resources you control. The more resources you control the more respect you will gain. Be careful or your members will end up in solitary confinement or worse, in the grave! Even if you find yourself running the most powerful gang in the San Quentin beware of the final round riot. Who knows what treachery the other gangs may be planning... You can be sure they seek your demise.

At game's end the players are scored based on what they managed to control in the prison. The more aspects of the prison economy your gang controls the more power and respect you gain. The players gang with the most respect wins!
