Grand City: Live-Action Gangster Playtest

Grand City - Gangster Game Banner

We’ve all heard the saying, “The family that plays together, stays together”, but what if your family is a major player in the criminal underworld? Well, then playtime can get a little… intense.

Introducing Grand City, a live-action social game in which 20 players become a part of the sinister 1940’s underworld. Over the course of two hours you will find your place in one of three major crime families, and do your part to ensure they come out on top. The game’s developer, Handwritten Games, will be holding a special playtest event as part of Playup Perth, where you can get in early and act as their informant on the process.

What: Playup Perth #6: Grand City
When: Friday 29th May, 5:30pm – 9pm
Where: Carpe Coffee, 526 Murray Street Perth
Cost: $12 (FTI members) / $17 (regular) 
Tickets: Available via Eventbrite

Purchasing a ticket will not only give you access to the seedy underworld of Grand City, but also includes the supply of delicious pizza from the old country* to get you in the right mindset. Places are limited, so if you think you got the moxie for the job, head on over to the Eventbrite page now!

*Pizza may or may not be from the old country. Your mileage on authentic mafia pizza may vary. Gluten free & vegetarian options are available however.

  • Hey guys, I just wanted to ask, if we purchase a ticket do we have to participate in the game? Or are we okay to just chill out and watch the game unravel?

    Sounds fun regardless!

  • Hi, Anthony from Handwritten Games here.

    I would absolutely recommend everyone participating. With these types of games, there’s a lot of room for how you participate within the game – if you feel like going lone wolf, there’s nothing to say you can’t just work for yourself and watch everyone else’s drama unfold around you. :)

    Hope to see you at the playtest!
