Go to POCKET Mode where you’ll find a Gbangoo character. Use this Gbangoo to take-over Mafia establishments from rival Famiglia’s anywhere in the world. Your Mafia Famiglia will become more powerful the more establishments you take-over and special items you collect. The most powerful Famiglia’s are listed on the world leaderboard.
After finding a Mafia establishment to take-over in any given Cell, go to POCKET Mode → select your Mafia Gbangoo → tap Drop. Your Mafia Gbangoo will then do the hard work whilst keeping you updated on what's happening. You can check the result of a take-over by looking at an establishment's description in Actions → About to see if the owner is now your Famiglia Boss. If not, this means the take-over failed. Try again after 10 minutes or collect more special items and invite friends to increase your Famiglia’s power.
You can add new friends simply by launching Gbanga on your phone, go to Friends Mode → Add New Friend. Type their username, phone number or e-mail address to send an invitation. If you want to meet new people whilst playing Gbanga, just look for Gbangoos and they will tell you the name of their owner. Check out the YouTube video about adding friends.
Gbangoos are creatures, which live in Gbanga's virtual world. You can carry Gbangoos in Gbanga’s POCKET Mode or drop them into the virtual world to perform various tasks.
No problem! Just trade a valuable item (gold, ring etc.) with your Famiglia Boss to receive a new Famiglia Gbangoo!
Simply travel the world and go where nobody else has gone before! If you're the first person to visit a part of Gbanga's virtual world, known as a Cell, you can give it a name and create your very own flag. Note that discovering new Cell's doesn't mean you automatically become the owner of any Mafia establishments located there.
