Rubout is one of the most popular games that runs at Quincon. No other boardgame will fill up as quickly as this one. If you saw the game itself, you would never believe it.
Rubout was published in 1989 by the Australia Design Group (ADG). It includes a paper map and cardboard chits, just like a wargame. But the theme is different. In Rubout, you play a famous 1930s gangster. The goal is to make money and avoid being “ventilated” by the other players. First player to $250,000 is the winner.
There is very little information about it on Boardgamegeek: Rubout
There is also very little information about it from the publisher: Rubout
The owner of the game, Steve, has taken this game and really made it shine by replacing the components. He printed the map on four big poster boards which makes it a very visual game and easier for lots of people to play. He replaced the cardboard chits with metal cars and miniatures. And he plays it with an enthusiasm that is infectious.
I encourage you to try to get into play Rubout.
