Re: Stagnation in Road Combat Designs .

There's three ways around the problem--power creep, rotation, and scenario design.

Power Creep is the direction Car Wars went in--printing more space-efficient designs over time that allowed...

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

At least SJG has a history of delivering on their kickstarters. Unlike a certain company I could GLLXXGGHE.

[Mod edit: Please do not flame other companies on our forums. It is a bad look.]

Apparently, the playing card industry has thoroughly metricized. Even casino cards are now printed metric, with approximate imperial measurements given.

MTG cards are metric, rounded down from 2.5 x 3.5 inches to the nearest whole mm, 63 x 88. This was a result of them being originally printed by Carta Mundi.

Re: Car Wars Wish List for Warehouse 23

Don't really remember. No.

I'll check them out and get a better report. Maybe we can work something out.

My LGS has four or five copies of Autoduel Champions for $3.99, IIRC.

Re: Car Wars Arenas

Actually, it would be really helpful if someone had a map grid that's transparent between the gridlines. The one I have is white.

Re: Interest in 3d printable track pieces for 'classic'?

That's true, but I was talking about terrain. If you used N-scale scenery pieces, for your 1-inch car models, no one would ever notice that the scenery was a pinch too big. Well, maybe if you were...

Re: Interest in 3d printable track pieces for 'classic'?

You could do Classic scale by hand, too. It's basically the same as N-scale model trains. (Classic is 25.4 mm to 15 feet, N-scale is a bit fuzzy, but most American and European models are 28.6 mm...

Re: Car Wars Arenas

Ok, if you had a computer at home, you more than likely had a printer. But, home computers were not by any means the norm when Car Wars released.

The maps were almost certainly drawn on computer....

Re: Car Wars Arenas

So... I have a large format printer at work, and I need something I can run through it to test and see if it works. Anyone got an arena map file I can chunk through it?

To clarify, I am NOT...

Re: Car Wars Arenas

2 things that are more likely, since, as noted, very few people had a printer at home in the early days of Car Wars, and there was never any distribution of map files.

1. SJ went with the size...

Re: Car Wars Arenas

It's eight 8.5x11 sheets. 2 11's wide, and 4 8.5's tall.

Why 8.5x11? Because a committee in the 1920s decided it was a convenient size.

Re: Advice for What Car Wars Products to Buy

Right, and Car Wars is a the best game for that feel. There are better games for tank and aircraft battles.

But, hey it was RPG-making in the late 80s, early 90s. Getting a core game that...

Re: "100 Years Ago Today" - Car Wars News

There should be a Holmgang arena on an island somewhere. Maybe the river between LaCrosse, Wisconsin and La Crescent, Minnesota. Lots of Scandinavian descendents up that way.
