Mad Dogs With Guns : Wargaming in the Gangster Era, Hardback Book

Mad Dogs With Guns : Wargaming in the Gangster Era Hardback


In 1919, the US Government declared the production, distribution, and sale of alcohol illegal.

America officially became a 'dry' land. That didn't stop people from drinking, however, and the rise of the 'speakeasy' offered huge new opportunities for organized crime.

Soon, cities both large and small became battlegrounds as various crime syndicates vied for control of the underground alcohol trade.

In Mad Dogs With Guns, players form their own small gangs of fedora-wearing, tommy gun-wielding gangsters and battle it out with their rivals.

With numerous different gangs to choose from, including cops and G-men, a fully integrated campaign system, and rules for special situations such as car chases, the game offers a huge variety of tactical challenges.

Bribe public officials, attend a gangland funeral, but always watch your back - there is always another gang waiting to poach your territory...
