A Nation Divided!
Crime Rampant!

It’s 1936, and America is a land in trouble. The Union is shattered, criminals control many cities, and violence is a way of life. Every day, federal agents from America’s rival nations battle it out against vicious criminal gangs for control of the streets using armored cars, weird science, and excessive firepower.

It’s Good Guys vs. Bad Guys. Which side are you on?

Inside this product you’ll find:
* A history of a divided America.
* Complete setting rules for running urban battles.
* A custom Freak Events Table.
* Scenarios and Ace Tales ready to play off the page.
* Stats for Common Troops, six Good Guy Factions (including the Bureau of Vehicular Crime, Canadian Mounties, and Rocket Rangers), six Bad Guy Factions (including the Chickago Bunnies, Doctor Destructo, and Seven Dragon Brotherhood), and three Neutral Factions.
* Stats for a range of armored and armed vehicles.
* Complete set of unit cards designed for easy reference and play.

G-Men & Gangsters: The Gang Wars is a Savage Showdown setting. This product does not contain the Showdown rules (which are available here).

I'll be discussing G-Men & Gangsters at the Beautiful Brains Chat Room Thursday night (early morning European time*). One lucky fan will be walking away with G-Men prizes!!!

North Carolina has already entered summer time, so the show kicks off at 1 a.m. GMT (2 a.m. for most western Europeans, I guess).

I assume that a Shattered Union is not required? That it is just additional spice?
That pseudo historical bootleggers and bank robbers would work fine?

Well, the backstory is as much a part of the overall setting as the stats, but the for feds, cops, gangsters, bootleggers, Chinese gangsters, Mounties, and Texas Rangers will all work outside the setting just fine. Smile

What you won't find are any conventional vehicle stats. Every vehicle in G-Men sports guns and armor.

Any reason that G-Men & Gangsters is not listed on the Triple Ace Home page "Games" drop down?
Showdown is but, you don't sell Showdown ... anyway, I was trying to point people to G-Men & Gangsters and didn't see it listed.

If you click on the Showdown link on the pull down menu it takes you to a page showing G-Men & Gangsters.

Time has prevented Rob from currently listing the two Faction Packs. And my web skills are second only to a dead rat.

Just got back from our Friday game session were we played a round of Al Capone's guys against some weird scientist and a 'para'. (No vehicles yet, we are trying to get it all down before we add them.

We had 170 points to a side but the "Mobsters" with the tommy guns and the rock and roll edge ruled the board.

Capone's side was 2 WC Capos(1 each), Mobsters(4), Bootleggers(4), and a group of Heavies with Fire-Axes.

The Weird side had Chief Scientist(1), a Moderate Para(1), Common Weird Scientist(5), Common Doctor(1), Bored Rakes(4) and Hooded Minions(4).

It was a meeting engagement on a side street neighborhood block lined with 2 story brownstones. The mission was just to kill the other side.

The weird troops never got very organized while the Mobsters covered the street with the tommy-guns. This allowed the Bootleggers to get on a roof-top in the middle of the street.

The Capos scored an overwhelming victory.

I can find it, it is others looking for G-Men & Gangsters specifically that may not know to look under Showdown.

Why yes, you do. Cool
Should make referencing it easier.
