When you would rather play a game instead of set-up a game, this is a great one to have around. Pick on all of your enemies at once!

One of my highschool favorites! A blast to play especially when we would roleplay the actions out. Results were hilarious!

Good, fun game. Nothing like a crash-up derby with cards. The only downside is there should be more "tireshots" otherwise nothing will ever happen to a players tires in any given game. Although overly simplistic, it's simplicity makes it easy to play with a group of kids. Some scoff at the "gang-up on the leader" scenario which inevitably occurs with such style of games, but hey, that's life. Poor losers shouldn't play such games.

This game is so much fun! Simple and mean. The more the merrier, but even two players will play this game again and again.

My Scout troop loves this game. It's a great implementation of a take that style card game. The theme really makes it work. The biggest weakness is a tendency to reward "feeding frenzies". Once a player is wounded it often behooves other players to just come at him until he's out then start on the next opponent.

Love this game! Easy to learn; takes maybe 5 minutes tops to teach and then you're good to go. Straightforward gameplay. Heavily luck dependant of course, but patient strategy and a little bluffing can pay off. Fairly lightweight but a fun, easy, time filling, crowd pleaser.

A card game where you try to breach the other player's cars and kill their driver with flame-throwers, machineguns, and autocannons. (fast play)

It has been so much simplified that has actually nothing to do with the original Car Wars. Attack other players randomly until only one survives.

The good thing is that Car Wars is played on several rounds, so player elimination only gets you out until the next round.

UPDATE: Up to a 6. It works very well for what it is. Plays quicker than "Bang!" or "Mag Blast", it is more fluid, and again: player elimination is NOT an issue here. It lacks cars with special powers, though.

UPDATE: Up to a 7. After trying some custom cars with special rules, I think it's the best "shooter" cardgame out there.

UPDATE: Up to a 8. I keep playing years after. I love this game.

Though way overpriced (as all SJG games)... this is a good card game and plays great with 2, while scaling well with more than 2 players. In games with more than 2, You do have the potential of the "RISK" problem of one player getting picked on early by everyone, but the games are quick enough to not have pose a huge problem. Great theme (I loved the original Car Wars) that feels good with the mechanics of the game.

An interesting adaptation of a miniature wargame. The card game is light, fast and easy to learn and play. Highly recommended for filler games, or when you are just feeling too frustrated to play anything heavy.

A game that mainly relies on the players to bring the fun to the table (and sound effects!). Lots of luck involved, and usually the first to be damaged is pounced on and eliminated first. Thankfully games are quick so eliminated players aren't out for more than 10 minutes or so. Purely a time filler, but a fun one for me.

The card game actually played easier, smoother, and quicker than the original boardgame. Just as fun too.

Because the card game was easier to just pick up and start playing, I think we played it more often than we did the boardgame version.

Can be a fun family game. Otherwise, it isn't fun that when you are dead you have to sit around waiting for the other players to get killed and you can get double/triple teamed pretty bad.
