Car Wars: Escalating League of Death!

GopherDave's picture

Do you remember the game Car Wars from the 80's and 90's?

No? Well, Gopher Dave does, and he's bringing it back in a six-session, escalation-style league...

We'll be using material from the last printing of the Car Wars Compendium, which is currently only available on PDF for $14.99 here.

Only 4-/6-wheeled ground vehicles (Cars, vans, pickups, etc.) will be allowed to be used for our first run of events. No cycles, no trikes, no boats, no flying vehicles. The final details about scorekeeping are being worked out, but the bulk of it will be based on how many people show up for a session.

  • Session 1: August 23rd: Noon - 6PM - Division 5 ($5,000 for one vehicle)
  • Session 2: - - Division 10 ($10,000 for one vehicle)
  • Session 3: - - Division 15 ($15,000 for one vehicle)
  • Session 4: - - Division 20 ($20,000 for one vehicle)
  • Session 5: - - Division 25 ($25,000 for one vehicle)
  • Session 6: - - Division 30 ($30,000 for one vehicle)

Prizes: We can do this for prizes if enough of you want to. Me? I just want to blow stuff up...

Demo: Dragon Raiders

GopherDave's picture

Another board game demo with another game in prototype stage!

Dragon Raiders is a cool little game where you play as young dragons, raiding fields and villages for food with which to grow big and strong! Funny thing, though... It seems that, occasionally, the villagers object to this behavior and try to stop you...

Silly villagers... =)
