In Sons of Anarchy: Men of Mayhem, players take the role of rival biker gangs out to control territory to reap the monetary rewards of controlling contraband. With each turn, new tiles are laid, which represent new territory, and clubs attempt to control that space by placing members of their gang (represented by tokens of Members on bikes, and Prospects who are on foot) in that space. However, other players can challenge for right to territory, which will lead to conflict; negotiate, threaten and ally with rival gangs when it serves your needs, but be wary of the inevitable knife in the back. The game is about making and breaking alliances, and the gang with the most money at the end of six turns wins.
As a fan of the TV show (despite it's silliness) I couldn't resist buying this, despite a self-inflicted board game buying ban. It's from the makers of Firefly and Spartacus (I can hear Kes' excitement already) and has some really good reviews so far. Expecting it to arrive this week so I'll bring it next Tuesday, assuming I can read the rules before then.
Anyone got it or played it before?

I saw a report from gencon and as you say, love gf9 so was interested but unlike, firefly and Spartacus, I've never seen the series so wasn't overly excited. I'll definitely play it.
I may have accidentally bought it last week...
