Yes, the game does mostly boil down to who can draw the right cards at the end. So what? It's not a strategy fest, it's gun toting, sideswiping, fuel stealing mahem! I may get tired of this game after more plays but it hasn't happened yet.

Our gaming-club just loves this one. the more players the more fun. no downtime and you can easily catch up if you fall behind. the only downer: it takes a lot longer than the box says.

We love this game. It's a CARD game with an apocolypic road warrior racing feel to it, you don't need a board in a card game. Besides a board would limit it's replay value! Don't expect more than a card game and you won't be dissapointed. Great fun! We acually bought micromachines to use as our car markers. Little down time, lots of interaction and backstabbing, and a race to beat. How can you NOT have fun with this? Glad I got my copy when I did, I see the price starting to creep up. Too bad more people havent played this jewel.

(50+ plays)

Who can play? Strategy game for 2-10 players.

This is the best MadMax/CarWars game I've played. It is a bit too complicated and seldom makes it off the shelf, unfortunately. Lots of machinegun shootin' drive-real-fast car blowin' up mayhem.

Boy, am I way out of the rating norm with this one. I don't care because I really think this is a fun game. Overall, the game moves fast and everyone is involved. I really think the rating it gets form others isn't justified.

A rather deeper and more solid design than the box art or its Geek rating suggests, and we played it a lot for a short period of time. Notable for an amazing list of Q&A from someone who played even more than we did. The rules will be a bit of a shock for the Alhambra crowd.

This is very enjoyable, especially when we customize our cars. We play it infrequently, though, so we still spend a lot of times looking up things in the rulebook.

Hey, this game is pretty cool! Like the movement mechanisms. Not sure how well it would play with 6-10 players, but the initial game was a hoot. Enjoyed my next run with 4, but I'm afraid my fellow players weren't too enthused.

A fast and furious card game of automobile mayhem. Played only three games until now.
What I like: Plays fast once you made your way through the unnecessary complicated rules. Up to 10 players can participate. Unlike some other race games it won't happen that one player takes the lead and runs easily to victory. Nice "take that" mechanism as you play cards (machine guns, spire tikes, sabotage ...) on other players. The theme isn't pasted on, lots of flavour.
What I dislike: Not too much strategy involved, basically you draw cards and hope it will be the right ones. Maybe there is more strategy involved once everyone knows the card deck and knows which cards to keep and which to discard.
Overall a very nice, fast multiplayer game.

We played a lot of this 'back in the day'. It suffers a similar problem to Road Kill Rally in that there's the card that everyone holds on to until the end and thus steals the win. Ultimately I find that spoils the game a little for me. Otherwise it's an excellent 'take that' game.

I am not generally a fan of the very technical GMT type of games. I was pleasantly surprised by the the game play of this one. I could imagine myself racing in a Mad Max world against other racers as morally bankrupt as myself... Suggest you give this one a try.

Unwieldy rules for a game that's supposed to be only moderately complicated. The "random number generator" is very cumbersome and alot of mental energy was spent on understanding the very clunky and seemingly incomplete rules. Played the basic game with 3 players. It might be fun with more players...and dice.

Typical of AH games, some baroque elements: wacky random number generation, tons of rules exceptions. But look past that and there's fun to be had. For some unexplainable reason, my wife (who's more comfortable with German-style fare) really likes this game.

Other than the classic AH Rulebook of Obscurity, this is a pretty good attempt to fit Up Front ideas to Mad Max-ish rally racing. Shambles along managing to just barely get out of its own way in providing a good thematic time.

Trying to simulate a fast-paced race game using cards is a design nightmare. When playing with slower players, this game can really drag.

Still a better game than the Car Wars card game.

[Greenwood] A very cool, heavily-themed hand-management game. Much overlooked a bit finnicky, yet I'll gladly play it. Kind of a multi-player-take-that-Up-Front-esque-race-game-with-a-theme...

(CT) With plenty of players, this one offers a good hour of entertainment. The theme is strong, and turns go relatively quickly, so downtown is minimal: even when it's not your turn, you may be passed or attacked by the active player. I wouldn't recommend the game with any less than four players, but work hard to get six and you will have some riotous, Mad Max fun.

This was a fun game by AH that allowed you to race your car and use some weaponry and allow for campaign style for winning races. I used to play car wars a great deal so this was something that gave me that flavor and allowed people to play a game in which they did no have to spend time creating their vehicle. This game used cards as it driving factor.
