Shoot N’ Skedaddle (SnS) is a rule set for skirmish wargaming set in the American Old West, from the mid-1800’s through the early 1900’s. The rule set was developed using 25/28mm miniatures but can be used with any scale as long as players adjust the ranges as needed. The rule set is available as a free download below. Note that the rule set is in its final testing, so check back for updates as needed – editions will be posted with the date (month/year) when updated.

SnS is suitable for two or more players, but may be played solo as well. Solo suitability is high.

SnS is recommended for 4-10 miniatures per player, with most games averaging 6-7 figures per player.

SnS does feature a campaign system allowing the development of a posse or gang through numerous engagements. (In progress)

SnS requires four special decks of cards for gameplay: Lawmen Special, Outlaw Special, Characters, and Weapons. These are provided in both boxed and unboxed versions (savin’ ye a bit o’ cash iffin’ ya don’t want no pesky bawx!).
