A Dangerous Game
Still a group of colonies living under British oppression in 1765, local gangs fight each other over turf in the streets of Boston, much less thinking of starting a revolution. When tax collector and pub owner Sam Adams doesn’t pay his own taxes, the Crown puts out a warrant for his arrest, leading to the destruction of Royal Governor Hutchinson’s mansion. Wealthy businessman John Hancock and Sam establish a black-market smuggling operation and boycott all goods from Tory shops, identifying them with a „T” painted on their storefronts. But an altercation between a loyalist and a Colonist mob lead to a young boy’s murder. Then, in 1770, after a conflict escalates with the Redcoats turn into a massacre, the wheels are put in motion to start a resistance against British tyranny.
