Just buy a copy of Battle Cattle. It's like Car Wars with weaponized bovines. I am not a fan of the over simplification (dumbing down) of gaming in general over the years. Sad state of affairs.  :tickedoff:

Screw ‘me. Let’s meet at Mr. Donut and play some Ogre.

I actually don't really like games.

That TOO was an excellent re-boot.

If I wound up rage purchasing it from Amazon rather than the dingbats at SJG.

I bought Gaslands, tried it, hated it.  Rollng dice to shift gears?  No thanks.  Having said that, I don't care for the direction they took 6e Car Wars.  Looks to me like they oversimplified it and copied way too much from Gaslands while throwing out way too much that was Car Wars.  I might pick up the minis and maps and use them with the original rules.

And only now days later does it dawn on me how easy it would be to create a 1/64 scale CW mod in TTS.

The cars are certainly already there as is the turning key...

I didn't say I wanted to do it TONIGHT.

But I may have to offer it as a protest when 6e funds.

At least when it comes to weapons up-grades, they're easy to beef up...................or so I've herd.
