RULES…

MEAN STREETS: War in Gang-Infested Cities

MEAN STREETS: War in Gang-Infested Cities Rules for fighting gang battles in the city streets of today, the recent past, or 19th Century. It recreates the romanticized look at street gangs from movies like the 1979 cult classic, The Warriors, or West Side Story. Each player controls a street gang composed of five to twelve figures, with each figure representing one man. Gangs can be assigned a huge variety of missions to earn victory points while engaging in rumbles with rival street gangs. Mean Streets includes experience point rules for a continuing series of games, and a complete set of campaign rules to allow players' gangs to wage street battles for control of their city. $20.00 USD

GAMES…

ROME & ROLL: The Rebuilding of Rome (Boardgame) 64 AD: Rome is burnt to cinders, in need of rebuilding. With the city weakened, distant settlements across the empire refuse to pay taxes and need reminding of the power of Rome. Emperor Nero gathers the most influential members of the city with a clear task: rebuild Rome and recapture the settlements. Players draft from a pool of custom dice to collect resources and special icons that allow them to build buildings – by drawing onto the map of the Seven Hills of Rome, Tetris-style – collect legionnaires, invade rogue settlements, or build the famous network of Roman Roads to the already pacified ones. Trading resources and other abilities might earn them coins, building Shrines will allow them to use the Favors of the Gods, and careful interaction with other players will surely lead one of them to victory. $49.00 USD

REBELLIOUS SCOTS TO CRUSH: The Military Response to the Jacobite '45 This collection of essays examines in detail some of the units that marched and fought for George II during this tumultuous period. Consideration is given to regular regiments of foot and dragoons, as well as to the additional units raised for the emergency. In the latter category, different chapters examine the 'noblemen's regiments' added to the regular line as a piece of political jobbery, the militias raised by clans loyal to the House of Hanover, and the blue-coated volunteer regiments fielded to resist the Jacobite invasion of England. Emphasizing the fact that this was a civil war, three of the units that are considered were Scottish-raised, whilst others contained substantial numbers of Scotsmen in their ranks. $50.00 USD
