Do you play miniature wargames on the tabletop which feature cars shooting at each other, similar to Mad Max?

It does sound fun and first time I ever heard about this was at a convention but no. Would only make me cry more over all the Matchboxes and Hot Wheels I threw away 40 some years ago.

As a matter of fact, I just got back from NJcon where I played in a great Mad Max game put on by the Metropolitan Wargamers.

I used to play Car Wars.
Now our group does an occasional GorkaMorka game updated to things like Fallujah etc.

Used to play Car Wars a lot, by that I mean we spent hours designing cars and then 20 minutes tops gaming out the battle. Said battles never lasted more than 10 turns – so 10 seconds in game time.

Emphatz10 Jun 2017 6:46 p.m. PST

Car Wars…Of course

DisasterWargamer Supporting Member of TMP10 Jun 2017 6:51 p.m. PST

tnjrp11 Jun 2017 5:52 a.m. PST

Not any more. Used to play GorkaMorka, albeit a rather heavily modified version thereof.

zoneofcontrol11 Jun 2017 7:46 a.m. PST

Not since the days of my youth: Kenner's SSP Smash-up Derby

infojunky11 Jun 2017 2:03 p.m. PST

Yes Several.

Waco Joe11 Jun 2017 2:54 p.m. PST

I35 every day going to work and back. I have built up an impressive imaginary kill list of ^@$^&&&&# drivers using my front and rear mounted gatlings.

KSmyth11 Jun 2017 3:20 p.m. PST

No, but it kinda looks like fun.

Coyotepunc and Hatshepsuut11 Jun 2017 7:35 p.m. PST

I used to play Gorkamorka. My group disbanded before I finished my Diggas.

I loved that game. I still have my books.

zircher11 Jun 2017 7:42 p.m. PST

Hey Waco Joe, we're playing the same game! I prefer twin MGs for the front and a mine layer in the trunk.

*cough* Maybe some Car Wars back in the day, too.

Andoreth13 Jun 2017 12:50 p.m. PST

Played a few games of Dark Future when it came out but most of the figures I bought for it are still unpainted.

Ghostrunner13 Jun 2017 1:59 p.m. PST

Sorely tempted to get back into Car Wars, but after games like X-Wing I'm not sure I want to go back to that level of minute detail.

The big draw for me is just being able to buy a bunch of cheap Hot Wheels cars, adding some greeblies to them, and maybe use a few obstacles.

Lost Wolf13 Jun 2017 5:02 p.m. PST

Want to.

Legion 416 Jun 2017 5:33 a.m. PST

The only Car Combat Games I play is when I'm trying to get a Handicap parking place at the Y, Plaza or Mall !! wink

huron72521 Aug 2017 3:12 p.m. PST

No. Not against it, just have never.

David Johansen22 Aug 2017 7:37 a.m. PST

Loved Car Wars but not so fond of the various attempts to revive it. Still, laser targeting link on heavy rockets for the win.

Personal logo x42brown Supporting Member of TMP22 Aug 2017 8:57 a.m. PST

Used to but not for a very long time


Thornhammer10 Sep 2017 2:02 p.m. PST

Looking for a "sweet spot" system. Most of the stuff I look at is too fiddly or not fiddly enough. Got a ton of cars all ready to go, too.
