Makers of Magic: The Gathering (MTG), Wizards of The Coast, have partnered with award-winning actor, author and television presenter, Ross Kemp, on their latest release,  Streets of New Capenna, which centres around five unique crime families vying for control over the city.
After receiving an anonymous tip off, Ross learns that representatives of all five crime families are finally all under one roof, making it the perfect opportunity for him to infiltrate the gathering.

Using his years of experience in hostile environments, Ross goes on a fact-finding mission. After deciphering clues about each of the five gangs, he receives a cryptic message of acceptance into one of the families… but which one is it?

Speaking on the new release, the latest Streets of New Capenna gang member, Ross Kemp comments; “Streets of New Capenna is a world inspired by mafia movies, hard-boiled crime fiction and prohibition-era America, three topics which have always fascinated me. It was interesting, exciting and entertaining to be a part of it and I can’t wait for everyone to check it out”.

Streets of New Capenna is the latest set for one of the leading trading card games, Magic: The Gathering (MTG) and contains 281 cards and releases on MTG Arena 28th April and on Tabletop 29th April.
Set in the brand-new Art Deco noir metropolis of New Capenna, the five crime families include The Obscura, The Maestros, The Riveteers, The Cabaretti and The Brokers. Players can choose which of the three-colour crime factions they want to join, each led by a mob boss and characterised by a unique mechanic.

So, which one will you choose?
Head to your local game store from 22nd April  to choose your family and play Streets of New Capenna at pre-release.
