3-4 (Our only real gripe about the game is its narrow player count)
Worker placement with a unique area-control element
Sons of Anarchy: Men of Mayhem surprised us with the quality of its gameplay and components (though Gale Force Nine does have a good history of translating famous brands into decent games) - this worker placement game about rival biker gangs delivers an unexpectedly 'classic' worker placement feel while still letting the theme come through.
Fans of the hit TV series Sons of Anarchy may be surprised to learn that there is a board game based on the show. In Sons of Anarchy: Men of Mayhem, Gale Force Nine attempts to translate the gritty, violent struggles of several rival biker gangs into…wait, worker placement mechanics? Really? Can that possibly work?
