Mini Gangs Ramshackle's FREE GAME

I have mad a new game, and part of it is for the kids. Its called Mini Gangs.

Mini Gangs has three ways to play, Gateway, Casual and Hardcore. The first, Gateway, is just that, a way into our hobby. I originally designed it to play as a kids game, but have since found that it is a good way to introduce new players to model gaming. You only need four figures each, a tabletop, one dice, a ruler and some scenery.

I know alot of parents who game and want a way to get their kids to play. I myself have been playing this with my 6 year old. He loves it and endlessly hassles me to play, although Im finding it hard to get him to make or paint a gang (his little brother is the creative one).

So, if you fancy some easy gaming with your kids, or want to get your non-gaming significant other to play, then please give Mini Gangs a try out. Its free.

ITS FREE! I have put up a pdf on Scribd and SaberCat, plus both pages as .jpgs on Imigur(pdfs have text based type, the jpg flattens the text into pixels). The images are designed to be printed onto two sides of an A3 sheet. I will be getting these printed up as part of the Kicksaterter to, so come and back that if you want a hard copy ;).

Playing tabletop strategy games is really good for children! Its full of mathematics, from numbers and estimating to planning and probability. I wrote an article about the benefits og our type of gaming on the Mini Gangs facebook page, If you would like to read it please follow this link :

Nice! Yeah its great to see it going down well. If you have any awesome quotes on what the kids think that would be very helpful for marketing for me ;)

One small note though, you're using the term Aptitude on the first page but the stat is named Awesomeness on the second page, a minor detail, but you might want to correct it

Also the healer doesn't have the Heal skill listed on their lost of what they can do. Again a minor thing as only they can do it.

It's nice that it can be played on a small surface. Played last night on a 2' square mat with a few pieces of scenery on it and it worked fine.

Argh! I check and check and recheck my texts but whole words dissapear or revart to an older form. I need a proof reader!

I will change the pages and then edit the links. THanks.

Also, I don't see a digital rulebook as pledge reward at any level, is this intentional?

Yea, a proof reader before having x number of rulebooks printed would probably be a good idea ;)
Unless you want to go the GW way and make erratas and faq's every few weeks after launch day
