GANGBUSTERS role-playing game is different from most other games. Instead of simply rolling dice and moving pieces around a board, players adopt the personalities and goals of clever police detectives, legendary F.B.I. agents or vicious gangsters from the 1920s and 1930s. Players must face the problems and dangers of a life-and-death struggle against crime. Your decisions and fast action determine whether you win or lose, whether the criminals are arrested or escape, whether your game character becomes a hero or is gunned down in blazing shootout.
This (boxed) set includes...a 64-page rule book, a 35"x22" double-sided full-color map of downtown Lakefront City showing detailed building interiors, a sheet of 84 cardboard playing pieces, a 16-page introductory adventure ("Mad Dog" Johnny Drake) and two dice.
