Re: CW as a roleplaying game?

Agreed. That's why it's called Car Wars, not Driver Wars, Pedestrian Wars, Mechanic Wars, Gunner Wars, Pilot Wars, etc.

(although I'd definitely play in a RPG where you play the Car as opposed to...

Yes on the Ziploc bag. Not my rarest but my most treasured.

It was not (I've had few encounters with MiB but all of them have been very professional) and as it's been quite a few years in the past, it's water under the bridge.

Re: Arena Building and Impostor Syndrome

I would never play a game again on the nicest set up I've seen after the judges there made a sexist comment when my daughter was in the lead mid-game.

Be a good GM/Ref/Player. The best icing in...

Re: What is your Rarest Car Wars item?

FWIW, I have the zip-loc version of CW, HW2K, Battlecars, and Battlebikes.

The last three were courtesy of attending games auctions at my FLGS in the eighties and nineties when you could get that...

Re: Stagnation in Road Combat Designs .

Exactly. Even worse is perfect weather, encounters at high noon with perfect visibility, and no "NPC" traffic and two sessions in you're yawning away.

Start throwing in those variables and optimum...

Re: LEGO Car Wars

Nice. I knew of these before but didn't realize they were available in brick & mortar stores. Have to swing over to Woodfield to check them out.

Thanks.

I believe "Busnaught" also first appeared in Why Johnny Can't Speed.

Re: Car Wars Beginner Here! (Classic Edition)

A new spin on the old Car Wars Wheelie. I think the cards are more accessible however.

Re: The Old Car Wars Novels/Stories - Any good?

Probably more of a market for "Car Wars"-ish novels. More generic rather than using SJG specific.

Re: Car Wars at Conquest Sacramento 2018 March 23-25

As a suggestion, it would be good if you could post the arena details there too. I saw it there first and had no idea how to use the arena.

Re: Cars Wars 6E - What We Know - 1st Post will be updated over time

What do hindsight and my estimate of the release date have in common?

They're both 2020.

The nice thing about your design is that it gives a good flavor of what CW is all about and at the same things not overwhelming them.

As noted, dropped weapons can be saved for later but the...

Re: minis and "pre-measuring" distance controversy

Just out of curiosity, are people using a grid with minis? For me, part of the reason to use minis is you don't need a grid then.

I knew throwing in reality would cause issues!!!

Re: minis and "pre-measuring" distance controversy

My memory concurs but I don't remember offhand where this was stated (an ADQ probably.)

I agree it slows the game down and also, your opportunity to fire in the game corresponds to 1/5 of a second...

Re: Car Wars TV episode

Was that the Autoventures module Ultraforce? I seem to recall that the Sky Cycle in there was actually pretty balanced for Car Wars.
