We’ve shamelessy adapted HBO’s hit series “The Wire” as a street game, and we’ll be premiering it next weekend at the Playpublik festival in Berlin. However, we haven’t playtested it yet! That’s where you come in. Come on down, try it out, and help us make it better.

THE WIRE: THE GAME
by Fuzzy Dunlop
Multiple games intersect in what is probably not a nuanced commentary on the modern urban crime environment. The Barksdale Organization competes with The Stanfield Organization to move the most product, while the Western District competes with the Eastern District to get the best stats. Meanwhile, Omar does whatever he wants. Plus, everybody has their own private goals anyway, so your team will probably end up losing. Activities include running, sneaking, playing with guns, and getting really drunk afterwards.
