[Ramshackle Games] Mini Gangs Kickstarter

Postby Ramshackle_Curtis » Fri Sep 29, 2017 1:37 pm

Mini Gangs is the latest release from Ramshackle Games, and Im doing a Kickstarter project for it:

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/179741323/mini-gangs-skirmish-game

I have been mulling this game over for many years now. Its a game for people who want a simple system to play what they want. Its got three ways to play.

The first is called Gateway, and is for kids or beginners to model gaming.

The second, Casual, is for people who want to have a few quick games to pass an evening. Its a great club game, its multi player and each person only needs four figures to play. Its also simple so its easier to get other gamers playing! Gangs get randomly dealt cards which represent equipment, skills etc, which makes it fast to play with no paperwork.

The third is called Hardcore, and is a full points system for designing whatever force you want to use. Its still simple and straight forward, but open to do what you like with it.

The KS also has 3 gangs of figures to go with it. The figures are cast in high quality polyurethane resin, so a departure from the usual polyester resin I use. You can see this has let me be alot more dynamic with my poses and I think these are the best figures I have made so far.

Mini Gangs has three ways to play, Gateway, Casual and Hardcore. The first, Gateway, is just that, a way into our hobby. I originally designed it to play as a kids game, but have since found that it is a good way to introduce new players to model gaming. You only need four figures each, a tabletop, one dice, a ruler and some scenery.

I know alot of parents who game and want a way to get their kids to play. I myself have been playing this with my 6 year old. He loves it and endlessly hassles me to play, although Im finding it hard to get him to make or paint a gang (his little brother is the creative one).

So, if you fancy some easy gaming with your kids, or want to get your non-gaming significant other to play, then please give Mini Gangs a try out. Its free.

ITS FREE! I have put up a pdf on Scribd and SaberCat, plus both pages as .jpgs on Imigur(pdfs have text based type, the jpg flattens the text into pixels). The images are designed to be printed onto two sides of an A3 sheet. I will be getting these printed up as part of the Kicksaterter to, so come and back that if you want a hard copy ;).

Playing tabletop strategy games is really good for children! Its full of mathematics, from numbers and estimating to planning and probability. I wrote an article about the benefits og our type of gaming on the Mini Gangs facebook page, If you would like to read it please follow this link :

I just put in a new reward level which is a digital bundle. It includes the rules, a printer friendly version, the gang sheets and the cards, all ready to print or for viewing on your preferred media device!

Also by popular demand I have added the Grenade Marker tokens to the project. Mini Gangs casual and Hardcore add grenades to the game. When a model throws a grenade, one of the grenade markers is placed. Each grenade type has a radius of effect, which is measured from the grenade in the middle of the token.

A set of 4 grenade tokens can be added to your chosen reward by increasing your pledge amount by £3.
