Godfather Board Game: "Thugs on a Map"

 Winning the game depends on one's ability at henchmen placement. Five to 16 players are required and game sessiond can last up to 90 minutes.
Seem to be a couple of Godfather games going around....

Eric Lang, game designer and "self-styled  'disciple of fun,'" recently posted an image of his Bloodborne card game box, about which he commenced tweeting last November.

He'd dubbed it "Project Dream," which he said is the code name for the Bloodborne game, which is "based on the Chalice dungeon runs, where players compete to kill monsters and take their blood. But don't die," Lang tweeted

Lang also revealed what another codename he's been tweeting means:  Project Suitcase is a board game based on "The Godfather."

Lang departed a cushy Facebook game developer position to follow his longheld (and seemingly outdated) dream of being a creative force in what today us called the "paper game industry." The fancy term seems to denote board and card games, such as Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit

"My goal was to work exclusively on board, card and miniature games I would be passionate about," Lang told TechTimes. "Since then, I have been busy doing nothing but that."

The Godfather board game is described as "thugs on a map." It is "streamlined," "confrontational" and filled with both murder and intrigue.

Winning the game depends on one's ability at henchmen placement. Five to 16 players are required and game sessiond can last up to 90 minutes.

Hunt for those who would take sides against the family. Godfather: An Offer You Can't Refuse is a mafia-style, deductive party game based off the iconic film trilogy by Francis Ford Coppola, and starring Marlin Brando as Don Corleone. In the card game, players will play as either members of the Corleone crime family, or undercover cops trying to end their reign. Played out over several rounds, the tension of the game comes in trying to figure out who's on which side, and never knowing when you might receive an offer you can't refuse!

But who's gonna wanna play Fredo?!?!

PS: There seems to be conflicting information about this game.

Other sites are referring to IDW's boardgame  The Godfather: A New Don.

Bleeding Cool reported:
Designed by Jay Cormier and Sen-Foong Lim (Orphan Black, Belfort), The Godfather: A New Don is a game for 3-6 players that sees each player taking control of one of the major mafia families, each trying to assert their power in the streets of 1950’s New York in hopes of taking the reigns as the new kingpin of the criminal world. The game is playable in approximately 45 minutes.
