Gangs of Rome

Post by Jeremy » Wed Apr 17, 2019 6:28 am

Anybody got this or played it? Let me know your thoughts.

I’m looking for names for my Gang. I’m currently on the Salmonella Gang led by Pancreus and Hepatitus.

I’m sure you lot can come up with something better than that which I can nick.

The lady of the house has to be Hysteria. Linctus is the local apocathary.
There must be lists from Up Pompei on the Internet.

Bigus Dickus and Incontinentia Buttocks should make appearances.

Yes I have it and aside from one game of Frostgrave GA it's all i've played since last Ayton!
It's a great skirmish system, i'm not totally sold on having blood markers on the figure bases but you cn just keep a note instead.
The system lends itself to being adapted for other periods, i've considered it for Pirates or Gothic Horror.

Did you get the 'Bread and Circuses' starter? It looks great and the starters are always brilliant value.

Your gang cards give the Characters name so you don't need to make any up...although one of mine is nicknamed "The Egyptian".
