Ramshackle Games is looking to bring a new set of rules to your tabletops. It’s called Mini Gangs and, as one would expect, it puts you in charge of your own post-apocalyptic gang. It’s designed to be quick to play, without lots of charts and rules, in three different rules tiers, depending on how in-depth you want to get. If you want just a fast pick-up game: there’s rules for you. If you want full campaign rules: there’s a set for you. The game is up now on Kickstarter.
