    "The Bootleggers" 1920's & 30's Rules for the Prohibition Era

    "The Bootleggers" is a 40 page adventure / skirmish game for use with Steve Barber's 25mm Prohibition Wars figures. This is a game for 2 or more players with 4 to 20 figures per player. It also includes historical character listings for use in the game.

    With these rules, it is possible to design scenarios ranging from the simple to extremely complicated. Examples are provided at the manufacturer's web site for a "St. Valentine's Day" game, as well as a night ambush of a liquor shipment. It would certainly be possible to make a free-for-all with quite a few players - this would be perfect for a convention game.

    The ground scale appears to be about 10' to the inch; the time scale is a bit more nebulous. Turns are taken one figure at a time, with initiative order determined by the roll of a d-10. A figure's turn consists of one action, typically a move or a shooting attack, but many other actions are considered by the rulebook.

    This game also verges on to a role playing game, with detailed rules for character generation, expenses, costs of equipment, careers, etc. It is possible to play a John Dillinger-like character as well as a Federal Agent such as Melvin Purvis. A fairly comprehensive collection of historical personages are provided pre-made to ease one's task of starting the game up.
