Hello all.

We are on the home stretch for the Play with Your Food (PwYF) campaign and event. This weekend, over 100 PwYF Team members will gather at the UofR for the 24Hr celebratory event. What are we celebrating? Well, PwYF struck out this year to raise $40,000 for Carmichael Outreach. At the time of writing this we are at $66,397. This is beyond humbling. I am so absolutely proud of the board game community.

The power of play has been harnessed to raise a substantial amount of money for a very worthy organization. I am quite excited and just wanted to share this. I invite you to get involved in next year's campaign which will start this coming June. It is truly heartwarming to be involved in this community and this campaign.

Together, let's raise a lot of money and have fun doing it!

"The way to have Power is to take it" - William "Boss" Tweed

Tammany Hall is a game of backstabbing, corruption, temporary alliances, and taking power at all costs. If you want to rule New York, you are going to need to play the city's growing immigrant populations against one another. Help the immigrant groups who owe you political favors, call in those favors to slander your rivals, and win elections.

In Tammany Hall, players help immigrants settle in New York, collect political favors from those immigrant groups, send ward bosses into Manhattan to secure votes, and slander political opponents. An election is held at the end of every fourth year, and the player who uses his power base best will be elected mayor. The Mayor's grip on the city is tenuous at best. After every election, the Mayor must pay off his political rivals by placing them in offices that they can wield to try to take control of the city. Every player is your friend, every player is your enemy.

Tammany Hall was the political machine that dominated New York City politics by organizing the immigrant populations. While the organization's influence spanned from its founding in the 1790s to its collapse in the 1960s, this game is set in lower Manhattan roughly between 1850 and 1870 – the era of Boss Tweed.
