The Chicago Way is a 28mm skirmish game by Great Escape Games.
In The Chicago Way you control a gang of driven men determined to achieve their goals no matter the cost. Choose from hard nosed Gangsters, two-bit gangs of Moonshiners, unswerving Prohibition Agents or bright eyed squads of Police officers.
The agents of the Bureau of Prohibition are responsible for direcly enforcing the National Prohibition Act. The Agents are low paid and of mixed quality. For each man who can be counted on to enforce the law comes another whose pockets are lined by the moonshiners and gangsters and whose belly is lined with the liquor they’re supposed to stop.
The void left by prohibition was soon filled by ruthless and ambitious men. Men who would do anything to make a few more dollars, or millions in some cases. If a bribe fails they are just as happy getting what they want through violence.
These folks have been making liquor for themselves for years. Now they get to make it on a grander scale and for more profit. They may not be the slickest operators but make sure you don’t cross them, you don’t want to find yourself in a blood feud.
Crime and the city have grown rapidly over the last few years. The flat foots have struggled to keep their heads above water. Many have chosen an easy route and turn a blind eye. Other stand tall and proud against the rising tide of crime doing what they can to enforce the law.
