Not sure if this is the correct place to post. I tried to talk to someone and Gencon and it was too busy and I was with an impatient group.

I believe in a previous post it was stated they were trying to get the game down to about 45min to 60min.

Now that the CAD files are flying and there has been play testing performed, is a game in the 45min to 90min range? if yes, for how many gamers? Will the game scale to say 4 to 6 players? How does the time to play change?

Just curious since this was one of the previously stated design goals in the other 6E thread.

The game is for two to four players. Playing time is roughly 30min per player; experienced players can complete games faster than that. That time includes vehicle design . . . assuming you're not playing with someone who is unable to make decisions. We cannot manage the AP masters in your group.

The game is not designed to support more than four players.

Is the four person limit a built-in design issue or more of the base game won't have the pieces to support more than four players. If I had expansions or a second base set, could I run 6 players assuming I was willing to accept the longer game time?

We wonít be making suggestions or comments on playing the game outside of the official rules. The game is designed for two to four.

Those pictures look great....and I canít wait till you are able to show production samples. I see the article referenced the wave 1 miniatures. Can you tell us how many miniatures will be in wave 1?

Estimated pricing of the three main Kickstarter reward levels. This does not cover any of the limited/special reward levels. Shipping estimates are not available at this time.

We are not yet ready to share all of the details on the game's miniatures. We'll have more info before the campaign launches.

I see SJG will be at PAX Unplugged in PA this December. Will there be a demo for Car Wars at the event?
