I have just discovered you can download all the old car wars games/supplements. I am looking to start playing this game again with matchbox cars or the cardboard counters. I had so many good times RPG'ing with this game. Looking for people whom would like to rediscover Steve Jacksons Car Wars.

Just printed the arena. Will laminated the map then I need 3 players for some crazy fun. Equip your cars with various weapons like rocket launchers, Machine guns, flamethrowers and be the last car in the arena to won. You can also create characters to improve your skills for next time you are in the arena.

Great game

I played it years ago but stopped playing in favour of GW's battlecars. We found that battlecars was a much stripped back version with no role play or progression but the game could be played and finished in 30min whereas we found Car wars took longer tended to become a bit stale and repetitive. Battle cars is equally repetitive but allowed us to get our Mad Max fix quicker.
