It%26rsquo;s hard to imaginea less dignified ormobster-like activitythan continually dropping everything to search every inch of every room for pornography, but that%26rsquo;s exactly what Mafia II asks you to do %26ndash; assuming, of course, that you%26rsquo;re trying to collect all 50 issues of Playboy scattered throughout the game and net the Ladies%26rsquo; Man Achievement/Trophy. Stop. Don%26rsquo;t waste time and/or ruin the tension of every action scene by scrounging for naked pictures of women nowold enough to be your great-grandmother. We already did it for you, and now we%26rsquo;ll save you the guesswork by pointing out where to find every last one.

Bear in mind that, unlike the wanted posters (which we%26rsquo;ll have a guide on very soon), issues of Playboy are tied to their particular chapters %26ndash; just because something%26rsquo;s in a freely accessible location doesn%26rsquo;t mean you can go back and find it later. If you miss them, you%26rsquo;ll need to reload the appropriate chapter to find them again %26ndash;and we recommend holding off until you%26rsquo;ve finished the game (or at least finished whatever chapter you%26rsquo;re currently playing so that your last save isn't overwritten) before you do that.
Don%26rsquo;t bother looking for Playboy in the game%26rsquo;s first chapter, since the magazine didn%26rsquo;t really exist in Sicily during World War II. Technically it didn%26rsquo;t exist in the %26lsquo;40s at all, but that won%26rsquo;t stop you from finding them when Vito returns to Empire Bay.
Playmate 3: When Joe takes you to meet Mike Bruski, look across the yard from where Bruski%26rsquo;s office and the giant car crusher are. You%26rsquo;ll see a building with garage doors and one normal-sized door. Head on in.
Once inside, look to your right. You%26rsquo;ll see the next issue on a shelf.
Playmate 18: As you leave Derek Papalardo%26rsquo;s office, look on the floor immediately to the left of the door. You%26rsquo;ll find what presumably was the Playboy Steve was reading just moments before.

... where you%26rsquo;ll find a set of double doors on the left. Open them and headthrough the next hallway until you reach a blue door. Open it and go down the stairs.
You%26rsquo;ll enter a circular hallway (this is also where you%26rsquo;ll find the alarm system, if you%26rsquo;d like to shut it off). Head around to the far side, where you%26rsquo;ll find this solitary door:
Go inside and walk to your left. You%26rsquo;ll see the next issue laying in this well-lit alcove.
Playmate 5: When you reach the director%26rsquo;s office (which has the key you'll need to access the room with the safe), walk just across the hall to find the industrial specialist%26rsquo;s office. Go inside.
Once you%26rsquo;re in the door, the next issue will be on a windowsill immediately to your right.
