WHAT THE HECK IS IT ANYWAY?

This is a play-by-mail/email game. Why would you want to play a game through mail or email? Many people think it is the most enjoyable way to play. This particular game makes use of all of the advantages a play-by-mail game has over other types of games. For instance, unlike games where each player knows everything, you know only what you need to know to begin - our computer system knows the rest. This makes for exciting mystery and allows you to make discoveries as you play.You will find It's a Crime! a fun and interesting game. You may find yourself rushing home each day hoping to receive your results. It's also a great way to meet new people and make new friends because there are over a hundred players in each game.KJC Games is the impartial moderator (referee) for the game. Our computer carries out your instructions. The computer programs for It's a Crime! are extremely sophisticated and, as you will discover, there's a lot more to this game than meets the eye!

HOW DO I PLAY?

You use two things to play: the turn card and the results sheet. You write your orders on the turn card and then mail the card to us or to play by email you just fill in the online turncard. We input your orders into our computer. The computer processes your orders and prints out a results sheet. The results sheet tells you what happened to your gang that turn. We mail or email this results sheet back to you.When it arrives, you open and examine the results sheet. You have now completed one turn. After reading it, you decide what your next set of orders will be. You then fill out another turn card and mail/email it to us. You repeat this procedure for as long as you want to play or until the game ends (but not more often than once per game week).

YOUR POSITION

You play the part of a gang leader who controls a group of misguided youths. Your gang is one of roughly 110 gangs inhabiting New York.New York City is in bad shape. The brave citizens who remain are now in a life-and-death struggle with the growing number of drug-crazed street gangs. The NYPD is severely undermanned. The street gangs rule the city.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO PLAY?

Not much! No charge for the rulebook. No charge for entry into the game. The first two turns are free. Thereafter the cost of a single turn is £0.50 or £0.75 for a Double Turn Area turn (new player games) or £4 a week (regular games). The only other cost to you is your email service.

THE OBJECT OF THE GAME

Your main goal as a gang leader is to control a very powerful gang. You must build your turf into one of the largest and your gang into one of the richest, toughest and most notorious in the city.Your ultimate goal is to become the Godfather, whereupon you are declared the winner and the game ends. There are several steps which you must complete before you can even try to become the Godfather. See the section on the Boss Level for more information.

We award many prizes for various achievements. For example, if you become Godfather you can play your next gang free for the entire game. If you are Capo at the end of the game (the Godfather's most notorious gang), you get 30 free single turn credits (£15).
