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

Any shot of Car Wars-themed d6, useful for Car Wars Fourth Edition and any other game requiring standard d6, becoming available if the Car Wars Sixth Edition Kickstarter Campaign is successful? Some ideas for these dice are below.

* AADA Road In Your Sights on the "1" facing.

* Uncle Albert's three-quarter profile on the "1" facing. Uncle Albert Dice should come in the colors of the five Uncle Albert's Catalogs (dark yellow for 2035, fluorescent green for 2036, bright purple for 2038, fluorescent orange for 2039, and black for UACFH). Possibly other colors should be available based on the three Uncle Albert's Catalog Updates previously published in Pyramid Second Edition.

* Car Wars Sixth Edition Dice "Two Wrenches inside a Circle" symbol for the "1" facing.

* Car Wars Sixth Edition Dice Shield symbol for the "1" facing.

* Explosion symbols or Car Wars Sixth Edition Dice "Star" symbols for each of the pips.

* Bullets for each of the pips.

Unlikely. Car Wars Sixth Edition does not use standard six-sided dice.

Thank you. I knew Car Wars Sixth Edition does not use standard six-sided dice. I was wondering if the CW6E Kickstarter would give a sign there would be enough interest in Car Wars in general to support dice not specific for CW6E.

If we were to create custom Car Wars dice for the classic game, it would be most likely as a part of the Pocket Box campaign:

Thanks again. I was thinking of a separate Kickstarter campaign after Car Wars Sixth Edition for the dice I mentioned. Trying to create Car Wars themed dice for the current campaign would be great but the timeline appears to be too short.

Perhaps a Car Wars Fourth Edition Dice Kickstarter in 2021 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Car Wars as a "blast of nostalgia?" :o)
