Gangfight Games announces New Blackwater Gulch Gang – The Secret Fist

Gangfight Games has announced the first of the new gangs for Blackwater Gulch, the Secret Fist!

From the announcement:

The Blackwater Lines Railroad employed many Chinese and Asian workers and laborers, but once the railroad was finished, many were simply laid off with no place to go. Some left town, others stayed but found it hard to get by on their own in a town full of people who didn’t understand their language or culture. Soon after, many Asians banded together to form the Secret Fist and now run the Oriental Quarter to protect other citizens of their kind.

The Secret Fist is lead by Mr. Foo, a massive man who operates a small pig farm just on the edge of town. His livestock are often used to hide evidence, they’ll eat anything or anyone for the right price. Chang is his right hand man, an adept gunsligner who’s sixguns never miss their mark. His old friend, Dr. Hoo, runs a small herbalist shop in town, and secretly supplies opiates to the more well-to-do in town. The exotic beauty Jen Choi and her cousin Fu Tang round out the Secret Fist as henchmen, running odd jobs around town and always ready to back up their friends in a fight.

The Secret Fist is a new gang for Blackwater Gulch. They will be featured in our upcoming Kickstarter campaign in couple of weeks.

There will be 3 other new gangs, and we’ll post info on each one as soon as the artists finish them 🙂

    And they’ll play just like every other gang in the game, right?

    • What’s the implication here?

      • Nightbee

        I haven’t played the game, but the rules for developing gangs looked very boring. It’s almost like spending a lot of money and effort to end up playing a multiplayer computer game. It’s all skins and skill trees.

        It feels like a very easy, but unsatisfying, way to balance a game.

      Better than having a card full of rules that requires a flow chart to understand fully 😉

      • No kidding. I’ve played a few games of this and find the ease of the system and game very well liked; simply because of not having to follow a “flow chart.”

        I’m itching for the Kicstarters to get here so I can paint some models and use those cool sheriff dice.

  • Necros

    Yes, no fancy ninja rules or anything like that. They’re all standard BWG characters, just a different look. They will be a more melee oriented gang though, as Mr. Foo is a wrassler.

  • Necros

    It’s simple to create a gang, and simple to play too. I designed the rules like that on purpose because that’s the kind of game I want to play. I play enough wargames with pages upon pages of charts and tables, enough to know I don’t want that for mine 🙂 I like fast & fun games where you can throw your minis down and have a quick, fun, laid back “beer & pretzels” style of game.

    But that said, there are a lot of options and as the game grows we’ll be adding newer skills, professions and special kinds of weapons like the gatling gun that will be one of the models you get in the US army themed gang.
