Local game creator, Jake Tlapek, will teach you how to play his exciting game, Grifters. Grifters is a hand-building game that has all the fun of deck-building, without the deck. Players take on the role of powerful crime bosses, building their criminal organizations by carefully recruiting new operatives with specialized skills and directing their team's nefarious deeds. All of your specialists are either in play or in your hand, ready to be used as you command. This unique handbuilding mechanic gives you total control of your strategy.
