Threat advisory: Under evaluation
Before gangs had guns... they fought with guts.
The summer of 1958 forever changed the Brooklyn landscape. Aside from the sweltering summer heat and the loss of their beloved Dodgers, Brooklyn was in a state of unrest. It was a time when rumbles escalated into gunfights and honour was quickly becoming a thing of the past. A new breed of wiseguys threatened to take control of Brooklyn's rough streets but only one gang wouldn't back down: The Deuces. Deuces wild follows the gang as they learn that loyalty and midnight rumbles can no longer protect them from the turbulent times ahead.

- FYI: The term "deuces wild" comes from the card game Poker and means that 2s (deuces, from the french "deux") are wild (can stand for any card in the deck), which gives you the opportunity to have a hand with five aces and not get shot
