Wild in the Streets is a low-cost, fast-paced skirmish game brought to you by bloodthirsty gangs of Murder Cult Girls, Crust Punks, Goths, Skinheads, and the Straight Edge crew!
In Wild in the Streets, you choose a gang to lead into back-alley street fights.
Want to throw down with Murder Cult Girls? You can.
Goths more your style? Better wear black.
Wanna paint some Skinheads? Put on your favorite oi! record while you do it.
Feel like spare changing before the fight? The Crusties will be there with you.
Got alcohol free paints? Maybe the Straight Edge crew is for you.
So, where did the idea of mixing miniatures and subcultures come from, you might ask? Well, for twenty years our gaming group has smashed through dozens of miniature games and RPGs as well as played in bands, done ‘zines and booked shows. The miniatures are all based on us and our friends.
And best of all – your miniatures are nearly ready to ship.
The game rules are written, the models are sculpted, and the card layout is complete – we just need your help getting everything cast, printed and into your hands as soon as possible. To streamline this process, we’ve made several customer-first decisions. First, we’ve made starting gangs super affordable. Second, we’ve already sculpted all the models before this Kickstarter campaign. Our goal here at Slow Death Games is to get Wild in the Streets into your hands immediately.
The first five gangs are ready, and you can read about them below. When you choose your backer level, you’ll also get to choose which specific gangs you want to collect and throw down with. In the future, we also plan to release several more gangs – as well as other exciting enhancements – but we’ll keep that a small secret for now.
Finally, let’s talk about game play. Wild in the Streets is quick, innovative and nearly free of record keeping. Game play allows for two to four players per game. Setup rules simulate a fight that had already started (or just about to start) instead of people staring at each other across the board waiting for action. Models activate when their card is pulled from a common deck, generating an unpredictable gang fight. You might have planned for your crust punks to ambush a lone death rocker but getting sucker punched by a group of skinheads threw a wrench into your plans. There are also event cards that can modify game play by impacting the models in a positive or negative way.
So let’s do this! Grab your dice, your terrain, a splash of paint... and let’s run Wild in the Streets!
Skinheads got their start with the working class youth in Britain and later spread to other parts of the world. With their sharp outfits and love of soul, ska, rocksteady and reggae, skinheads could be found dancing at many clubs, watching live bands and riding their scooters. Skinheads in Wild In The Streets are quick to throw the first punch and plan to stick around for the last as well.
Crusties fill the space between hardcore and metal. They love the dirty sound of crust punk bands with it's metallic influences but without what they think are the ridiculous parts of metal. In Wild In The Streets, and often in real life, they are loud, drunk and disorderly. Fists, empty 40s and studded denim jackets will fly!
An offshoot of the punk scene, Goths are part of a varied subculture that ranges from death rockers to industrial to darkwave to metal and more. In Wild In the Streets, Goths travel in large groups and prefer to fight two or three on one and appreciate the value retreating to regroup.
Remember that woman you met at a show who told you she could not only beat you up but could drink you under the table? It wasn't just talk. She and her friends have a gang that will beat up your entire crew, look good while doing it and have the pictures posted to Instagram before you even pick yourself up off the floor. The Murder Cult Girls move fast, kick ass and don't bother remembering your name.
Maybe you want two gangs so you can teach a friend how to play. Maybe you are picking up a gang for every person in your gaming group. If you want two, three, ten gangs or more just add $15 to your pledge for each additional gang.
Has the edge gone dull? Not for this crew. In Wild In The Streets these guys might be drug free but they certainly aren't violence free. From youth crews to straight edge punks they will unite, X up and finger point their way to victory. Pick them as one of your pledge gangs or add them to any pledge for $15.
Maggie is available as an alternate leader or gang member for your skinhead gang. Add an additional $5 to your pledge for her.
Jorge likes two things - drinking and fighting. Luckily for him his crust punk friends always have a 40 with his name on it. And unlucky for you he is looking for a fight after he downs that 40. Jorge is available as a $5 add on.
Justin plays in more bands than you have records. He is also a very loyal friend. When he sees someone take a punch at one of his friends at a show he comes running at them with swinging his bass towards their head. Justin is available as a $5 add on.
More goths for the goth gang! These three women are bringing backup for Dave and his death rockers. These three models are available as a $15 add on.
Claudia for the Murder Cult Cult girls is available as a $5 add on to your pledge. She doesn't have claws but she has a knife and that is what she plans to use to tear you up.
We shot a couple how to videos at Slow Death Games HQ to explain the stat cards and show a small game in progress.
All stretch goals have been unlocked!
Risks and challenges
These miniatures are already sculpted they just need to be molded and cast. The only potential risk is the mold maker pushing back the date to mold the miniatures but that is not expected.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
