Product Description

Players are city fathers of Asakusa. You walk around the sites of Asakusa and place your men in those sites. When other players already have their men in a spot, you can kick them out by placing more men! You earn income from the sites where your men are when you arrive there again -- but don't forget to factor in the cost of hiring those men. In order to be the king of Asakusa, good business sense is as important as power.

I'm guessing that "city father" is a euphemism for "mob boss"...
