Car Wars

Tuesday 16 January 2018
Drive offensively! In January 2018 we presented the Car Wars Bundle featuring Car Wars, the classic autoduelling board game from Steve Jackson Games. On the highways of the future, the right of way goes to the biggest guns. Custom-build your car, motorcycle, trike, truck, bus, helicopter, or boat — load it up with arms and armor — then take to the open road to see who’s King of the Highway — and who’s roadkill.

There were six titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $55) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the authoritative 1998 Car Wars Compendium Second Edition rulebook with all the Deluxe Edition counters, maps, jump-start rules, and play aids — plus the comprehensive equipment book Uncle Albert’s Catalog From Hell and all four sets of City Blocks modular road sections.

Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got our entire Bonus Collection with seven more titles worth an additional $54: all three Vehicle Guides from the American Autoduel Association, as well as both Classic Arenas releases and the huge Autoduel America Map. After launch we added Convoy, a programmed adventure for 1-6 players — a deadly high-speed rescue mission from Memphis to Lexington.

Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) goes to a charity that figures prominently in the history of Steve Jackson Games, the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
