There's one in the book.
It's also not too hard to devise your own - give each gang a different secret objective, making sure the objectives 'clash' with one another.
(e.g, Outlaws must free gang member from jail, Desperadoes must rob bank, Pinkertons must kill or capture Desperado leader, Lawmen must escort a prisoner to jail (where they will bump into the Outlaws trying tobreak in).
Or you can play in teams (e.g. Pinkertons + Lawmen vs Outlaws + Desperadoes)

We have simply divided two gangs in half for 3 or 4 player games, taking turns who played the "boss" or lead figure of each gang. That being said, 3 and 4 gang games devolve into complete chaos and carnage when we have played them, if you are looking for that sort of thing. :D
