About

As a young up-and-comer with a proud Italian heritage, you have vision, that’s for sure! You just might have potential, but you’re not the only one.  Play your cards right, and you can control a borough or two, gaining the respect and Mafioso that come with it.  Or try your hand in one of the family businesses. You will quickly learn just how lucrative they can be with the right influence. Beware however the feds have an ear to the ground for characters like you!  Make a name for yourself and they are bound to take notice. Not to mention the family...Too soon and you will be running numbers just to survive. Wait too long and you will be calling another the Don!

Borgata is an interactive deck building game where players must use their skills to gain respect and move up the family ranking. Players are forced to work with their rivals in order to keep another at bay, meanwhile trying to position themselves to gain the elusive, but necessary respect.  You will need allies to survive, but ultimately will have to decide when to turn on them if you want to win.  The player who does this best will become the family Boss.

Risks and challenges

Borgata is the first project produced by Goat Games. Though we have 20 years of experience in design and production, there are always challenges that can arise. Whenever manufacturing oversees and shipping globally, uncontrollable circumstances may come along. As such we have worked diligently to solidify our manufacturing and shipping cost in order to mitigate these risks. We have also reached out and discussed challenges that were faced by those who have already successfully funded and fulfilled games on Kickstarter and through publishers. Whatever risks and challenges we may face, we will be diligent and timely in our communication with our backers!
