Gangster Quiz

While gangsters often do very bad things, there's still something undeniably alluring about their lifestyle. Typified by excess, hot girlfriends and an endless amount of fearful respect, their exploits have provided us with numerous films and TV shows to watch (and then quote).

After The Sopranos ended, it seemed like we should all just give up, right? Well, luckily 1920s epic Boardwalk Empire is here to make it all worthwhile again. To celebrate the start of the new show (Feb 1st on Sky Atlantic) we have a quiz to bring back all that gangster knowledge you're quite proud to possess.

Doing the quiz while impersonating Don Corleone is optional.
