Carwars CAR WARS RETURNS! Back in the late 80’s a great fiend of mine introduced me to this game that came in a small plastic box with a lot of card stock counters that you had to cut apart. It was fast paced and full of action that brought together demolition derby races with the blood and weapons of Mad Max. Set in Post-Blight America, it was world where the roads were owned by the guy with the biggest guns and fastest wheels.

Steve Jackson Games discontinued Car Wars in the 90’s but it’s fan base continued to grow. When the Ogre Designer’s Edition hit Kickstarter one of the stretch goals was a promise to bring Car Wars into publication and to update the rules for today’s gamer.

News today from the Daily Illuminator brings great news to Car Wars fans. Scott Haring has returned to Steve Jackson Games and will lead the charge in bringing this great game back. Even more great news, Scott tells us that Car Wars Classic and Mini Car Wars will both be relaunched later this year!!!!

Multiverse has a PDF copy of CAR WARS Compendium which I bought from Warehouse 23. Come up and try your hand at Amateur Night at the Multiverse Autoduling Arena!

Journey Into Nyx – Launch Day

DSCF0625

Friday May 2nd is Journey Into Nyx

Launch Day

Launch day will bring us two promo cards. One is the hero card “The Destined for use against the challenge decks. The Destined lowers the mana cost of all of your spells by 2 colorless. That can be great advantage in any game let alone when going up against a god like Xenagos.

The other launch day card is Dictate of the Twin Gods. This 3 colorless, 2 red mana cost enchantment, while a bit expensive for my tastes, has a lot of potential to claim victory with Flash.
