UM015 USEME Prohibition Gangsters

Alternative Armies

SKU: um015

'You dirty rat, you killed ma brother!' A hundred years ago the United States introduced laws which banned the sale of booze to the common people (with plenty of loop holes) and this led to the rise of speak easies as well as gangsters ready to break the law and to make themselves rich and famous at the same time.

The roaring 1920's is here in the fifteenth title in the USEME series. This title was the creation of Robert McAlister and Steve Rysemus and their enjoyment of this special time in history. The D6 engine is fast play and well suited to 15mm scale and other scales of miniatures. Lead your gangsters or police or gmen or others in raids and runs.

CONTENTS OF PRODUCT: The USE ME game system. You will need some miniatures, some terrain and a few six sided dice (D6's) to play the game. This is not much and indeed most of the time everything in play needs only 1D6 roll to make a decision. In the game all miniatures and vehicles are de-marked into of CHARACTERS (from Infantry to Vehicles and everything else) and these into TYPES which allow you to create anything you want from this period with a few tables of TYPES with points costs attached. USE ME is a pocket rule system that does not pretend to be anything else. Its fast, its fun and its affordable. With many rule systems these days taking themselves far too seriously and with some being priced at an amount that makes purchasing them a long term goal for most of us USE ME gives you what it promises and in a format that will make you smile.
