Mean Streets: War in Gang-infested Cities


Mean Streets: War in Gang-infested Cities is a simple, fast-play set of wargame rules for fighting gang battles in the city streets of today, the recent past, or 19th century. It recreates the romanticized look at street gangs from movies like the 1979 cult classic, The Warriors, or West Side Story. Each player controls a street gang composed of 5-12 figures, with each figure representing one man. Gangs can be assigned a huge variety of missions to earn victory points while engaging in "rumbles" with rival street gangs. Mean Streets includes experience point rules for a continuing series of games, and a complete set of campaign rules to allow players' gangs to wage street battles for control of their city. Extensive scenario design rules and primary and secondary missions assist players in setting up their own games. A bibliography gives players inspirational books, movies, and blogs to read to help them create their own world, making it as Hollywood or realistic and gritty as they desire.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
