Capo dei Capi Video Review

Capo dei Capi is the latest game from Steve Finn of Dr. Finn’s Games. It’s a great two player press your luck game that adds a strategic element to the game to help overcome bad rolls and even to boost your position. Set in the early 1900 prohibition era, can you do what it takes to become the boss of all bosses?
