Thanks. We want to make it possible for everyone to play the game. There are minimum costs involved, but we thought it worth exploring a way to craft a two-player option to create as inexpensive an entry into the game as possible.

A reasonably priced entry point will be key for interesting new players in the game - both during the KS and after.

I suspect anyone reading this thread already knows that this will be an important factor in the long-term health of the system.

Stopping rumors before they start.

The two-player options will _not_ be offered outside of the Kickstarter campaign. The two-player option has been devised for the Kickstarter campaign, possibly Warehouse 23 if there are extras left after fulfillment, but definitely not retail sale.

A friend is asking if there will be an offer without mini nor playmat (only the rules, cards, tokens and turning key) ?

Or is the 2 player box the closest ?

Seem he already have lots of minis and previous CW editions, and given international shipping...

Thanks

We are not offering the rules, cards, and other bits as separate items. Older Car Wars titles are not compatible with Car Wars Sixth Edition.

Curious question and I may have missed this, but one can create custom cars in 6th edition, correct?

Seems like the price for 6e will mirror X-wing. The starter set for 2e X-wing (X-wing and two Tie-fighters) is about $32.00 on Amazon).

The game includes car design rules, yes. Expansions offer up more weapon and accessory cards.

How much playtesting has been done with match-ups of the stock vehicles? I always liked the kind of game balance that the tournament ships in SFB offered. Will the stock vehicles in 6th Edition perform similarly?

There are no stock vehicles in the core game. There are suggested card mixes in expansions, but nothing is locked and vehicle design only takes a few moments.
