Description Edit | History

Thunder Road is Milton Bradley's answer to Mad Max. You rocket your team (three cars and a helicopter) down a stretch of post-apocalyptic highway and try to either wipe out the other teams or outdistance them and leave them in the dust. Each turn consists of a dice roll to determine car movement and a combat phase where you try to shoot or ram your opponents. The gameboard consists of two pieces of highway and when the lead car exits the front piece of highway, the back piece is placed in front (after dumping all the wrecks and slowpokes off of it) thus creating a never-ending gameboard.

20 Thunder Road Advanced Rules
In honor of the release of the movie "Mad Max - Fury Road" I present my collection of various Advanced rules for Thunder Road! We've played many games with these rules at various conventions and at our local game club so they should be pretty well tested. They do add an additional element to the game. Suddenly, counting out squares becomes a lot more challenging! It does make for a little slower paced game, but in a great way! If you really just want a dice fest then play using the original rules. Or just take the elements you like from these rules and introduce them slowly to your group. Most of these rules can stand independently on their own. Hope you enjoy them! Feedback welcome.

6 Thunder Road Boards Original and New
Here are 8 boards for Thunder Road. These are from my homemade version of Thunder Road. They are in jpg format and are tiled to print on standard 8.5x11 paper or sticker sheets. The boards are: 1. Original starting board with starting positions for original and new vehicles. 2. Original ending/title board. 3. the Bridge (inspired by BGG user David O Miller) 4. Roadblock (inspired by BGG user David O Miller) Boards 3 & 4 are designed to tie-in with the original boards. 5-8. the Serpent - a 4 board sequenced set. Board 5 has all the original and new vehicle starting positions and is a transition board from the originals. Board 8 in made to tie back into the original boards. All the boards have the standard 4 wrecks. These boards are also slimmer since I designed them...

2 Vehicles
This file contains the chopper and top-down views of all the standard vehicles: the Avenger, Eliminator, and Doom Buggy. Plus my version of the tanker and motorcycle (the Express & the Outlaw) and my monster truck - the Crusher. I put a few extras in there like: oil slick, spike strip, fuel drum, rocket, and land mine tokens. Teams are color coded Red-Blue-Yellow-Green (to make it easier to match dice to cars for solo play). There is a Brown solo-play team that includes a Mad Max Interceptor II. All kinds of goodies for DIY/PNP projects. Enjoy!

6 Random Movement Chart for Solo Play
Here is a revised version of my random movement chart mainly for solo play or scenario play using "bot" cars. It includes motorcycles and monster trucks (I plan to post my monster truck idea soon) and gyros. I have the cars color-coded according to my homemade Thunder Road game to accommodate future variants. Roll 2D6 per car and match to the path on the chart. This is the path the car follows. If less than 3, the car moves as far as possible. If more than 3, the car continues straight in the direction of the arrow. I use the chart in the upper left to determine movement order - left to right, top to bottom. If the movement path would take the car off the board the car travels straight along the edge for the remainder of its movement. If in position to shoot the "bot" car must...

18 ThunderRoad: 30th Anniversary Warrior Edition
My life fades. The vision dims. All that remains are memories. I remember a time of chaos. Ruined dreams. This wasted land. But most of all, I remember the Road Warrior. -The Chief of the Great Northern Tribe Thunder only happens when it's raining. Players only love you when they're playing. -Stevie Nicks ---------- Like what I have done before with Fireball Island and Crash Canyon, get ready for the penultimate ThunderRoad experience. Finally, play this game with a 48 card deck and watch it really come to life! The cards: Avengeance, Backfire, Bug Out, Buzzard Bombed, Car Wreck, Doomed Buggy, Eliminated!, Grand Handling, Gyromite, Mad Maximum, Nitrous Booster, Rolling Thunder, Thunderstruck, and White Line Nightmare. Prepare to be run over with excitement!!!

5 Aarontu's Special Powers Variant Cards with Custom Card Backs
With his permission, these are Aarontu's Special Power Cards along with custom card backs I created. The cards are 2.5" x 3.5" and have been formatted to facilitate back to back printing. Cut them out on the card backs side as I've included a bleed edge on the card fronts to account for slight misalignment during printing.

12 ThunderRace
I reworked my previous rules to make them easier to use and expanded the scope of the game to include two modes of play, the traditional road battle and racing on an enclosed, modular track. There are also two classes of cars, the Low tech cars that we all know and love and new High Tech customizable vehicles that use a wide variety of optional weapons and accessories. In addition to these rules, there are 5 other PDFs for tokens, markers, cards, control sheets and, of course, track sections. Just PM me and I'll e-mail them to you, or go the link below. https://sites.google.com/site/powellsgamestuff/home/thunder-race
