About


Gangsta! explained by the Schmeta Games team : who we are; how to play the game; what are its main strengths.

  How to perform a cooperative heist 

 How to mobilise your gang  


The Gangsta! rulebook can be downloaded below in English or French. All boxes will include both the English and French versions of the rules. Depending on the success of this campaign, we plan to translate the rules of Gangsta! in Italian, German, Dutch and possibly Polish (all being available for download on our website).

We have done our best to keep shipping costs as low as possible. However, we will only be able to cover the main Continental Europe countries. Shipping prices include all duty, taxes and VAT (if applicable) and remain the same, whatever the number of boxes you pledged to acquire. We will also provide a free pickup possibility in Brussels (anytime from January 2020). Since the European Union tab option is sadly not working, we will contact all our backers when the campaign is over and reimburse everyone willing to opt for the free pickup option. Thanks for your understanding !

I have been specializing in game development for several years, creating various projects with complex mechanics that are set either in a post-apocalyptic world (Apocalypse) or in medieval times (San Gimignano - 3rd prize Expert games at Paris Est Ludique 2018). My experience and the feedback I received while presenting my previous projects allowed me to build enough critical thinking to come up with the game I consider to be the most accomplished to date: Gangsta!. In my opinion, a good game is an immersive one, that offers loads of player interactions and allows long-lasting fun, excitement and replay.

After studying illustration at Saint-Luc Brussels, along with a specialization in PAO, I worked in the advertising industry for 10 years, where I focused on graphics and storyboards. I then decided to start a career as an freelance illustrator. Having always shown a great interest in board games, I chose to shift toward illustration within this rich and varied universe. Since then, I have worked on illustrating several games, including "When I Dream" (Repos Prod.), "Les Marchands du Nord" (La Haute Roche), "Dino Challenge" (Bioviva), and many other projects.

Risks and challenges

R&C
Although this is our very first game production, we have done our best to mitigate the risks and challenges of this project. While timelines are often a concern for Kickstarter projects, we have taken some strategic actions to ensure that all boxes will be delivered on time : the artwork is already completed and we are working with the most reliable games manufacturer in Europe. As soon as the campaign is over, we'll start the printing process.
