The Oleg Story: Survival
The Oleg Story: Survival: is a prison based board game, the story is based on Oleg, he is a known international hacker who was extradited to the US after leaking confidential information from the government. He has been incarcerated in one of the most notorious prisons in North America, which not only houses domestic criminals but also foreign criminals.
It is one of the most dangerous prisons in the world and the United States government has denied any acknowledgement of Oleg.
The prison houses 6 large gangs and many small sub gangs. These gangs include 618 Nation a known street gang, Ryder Brotherhood a supremacist organization, The Asian Family who are an organized crime group from China. The Mobsters who were very huge in the 60s - 80s and are now all serving life sentences. Russian Spies are dangerous, do not trust them, and finally Non Gang Members also known as NGM who’s led by Oleg are all in your hands.

The Back Story DVD
The creators will be launching a Kickstarter for this game soon (07/26/2013).
The game can be played by up to 2-6 players. The players play and control the stories of 6 rival gangs in the prison. You can also play a survival round or even play cooperative and play with your assigned mission cards. Not only that, but you can also ally with your fellow players and target other players and even betray your allied clan as everyone has their own agendas.
This looks like it might be fun for someone like me, as I actually used to be a prison guard. So, I’ll be keeping an eye on this one. Let’s all hope it succeeds. Hopefully I’ll be able to give you all a more in-depth review soon.
