The main objective of the game is to prevent crime from spreading throughout the city and affecting all the neighbourhoods and the people living there. To achieve this, the characters, embodying different social agents, must get 10 VICTORY CARDS. If they manage to get them all, they will have beaten the crime and won the game. Otherwise, the crime will have triumphed and everyone will have lost.
