The Story of Judge Gibson AKA Mutie the Pig
Judge Gibson had been a cadet at the same time as Dredd, and was a close friend – but in his disguise as Mutie the Pig he also undertook numerous hideous crimes. When Gibson realised his alter-ego and life of crime had been uncovered by Dredd, Gibson sought to murder his old friend. Fortunately for Dredd, he felt Gibson’s laser sight linger on him just before Gibson pulled the trigger, and avoided being shot. However, in order to nail Gibson, Dredd needed the bent Judge to think he was dead so the crimes would continue to be perpetrated, affording Dredd the necessary evidence. Dredd faked his own funeral, then burst in on Gibson while he was committing another crime as Mutie the Pig.
One player has Judge Gibson, the other Judge Dredd. This Famous Firefight took place during an earlier time in Dredd’s career, so use the entry below for him rather than the one in the main rulebook.
Note that Judges Dredd and Gibson trained together in the Academy of Law and remained close friends thereafter, and so are very similar – they both use the same entry below.
The duel takes place in a simulation of a dense area of Mega-City One, so try to fill the table up as much as possible! The table should measure 24” by 24”, and the two Judges start 12” away from one another, in Line of Sight.Judge Dredd takes the first Phase of the game.
Neither Judge can try to arrest the other in this scenario – Judge Gibson has already been arrested! This will be a duel to the death…
The Judge who manages to dispatch his opponent is the victor (however, Dredd will not consider this a victory and Gibson will be off to Titan if he wins!).

Just a fun mini game, takes maybe 20-30 minutes to play. I use it as a way to introduce people to the game who can understand slightly more complicate special rules.
