Join The Mad Dogs With Guns Rules Coming In June From Osprey

May 24, 2017 by brennon

Make sure to keep an eye out for Mad Dogs With Guns, a new rule set coming out from Osprey Games in June for your gangland warfare in 1919.

Mad Dogs With Guns

So, what’s the game all about?

“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…”

It sounds like it could be a lot of fun and it’s always interesting to play as the bad guys sometimes on the tabletop. Hopefully this brings in some of the Mafia video game style elements as you try and set up your gang and rule the roost. Or, maybe you’ll be playing as the cops trying to shut them down.

What do you think of the concept?
