About this project
Road To Infamy is a crime-themed board game for 2-4 players. You are a wealthy gang leader competing to run the most infamous crime operation in Chicago. You will place bids on the black market to recruit gangsters with unique abilities, buy contraband to become more infamous, and bribe the cop to protect your goods and sabotage your rivals.
- Easy to learn. 10 minutes to learn. 45 minutes to play.
- Fast-paced gameplay. No waiting for turns. Players perform actions at the same time.
- Deep with strategy. Methods of earning points change depending on your combination of gangsters and actions, so the game is different every time you play.
Players start with a hand of 6 bids. Players choose a bid and place it face down in the ready position. When everyone is ready the bids are simultaneously revealed. The bids’ colors signify what you are bidding on (see below). After 3 turns the highest bidder on each color wins that corresponding prize. Players take their winnings and reset the board for the next hand. After 12 hands the player with the most Infamy Points wins.

Jeffrey Chin and Andrew Nerger created Road To Infamy in their Chicago apartment in October 2014. After a year of designing and testing prototypes, the game is finally done and ready for printing. Jeff and Andrew got into game design by inventing games to entertain their friends, including a Hunger Games forum-based RPG, a live action Mario Party, and numerous party games. They also enjoy home brewing and played in sub-par ska band in high school.
Jeff does all the designy stuff for the game. He has also illustrated three children's books, but his real life job is directing storyboards for TV commercials (including this Super Bowl Ad). Andrew handles marketing and production for the game and also works as a financial analyst. He also likes to party.
Road to Infamy is their first Kickstarter project.

Risks and challenges
This being our first Kickstarter project, we researched the issues that plague many other campaigns.
Quality of Product: We have extensively toured the game around conventions, gaming events and Meetups, and hosted playtest events. Road To Infamy is now a finished product and has been tested by over 300 players.
Production: We are using a high-quality and reputable game manufacturer, Ad Magic. They are responsible for games such as Cards Against Humanity and take an active role in the board game community.
Shipping: We understand that shipping delays are always a possibility, so we are using the reputable and trackable delivery service, Ship Naked, which has been used by countless successful Kickstarter projects.
We are passionately committed to our game and are willing to work through any issues to ensure all our backers' pledges are honored.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
