Nothing exists; all is a dream. God -- man -- the world -- the sun, the moon, the wilderness of stars -- a dream, all a dream; they have no existence. Nothing exists save empty space -- and you! And you are not you -- you are but a thought.

I had this game when I was a kid, but it has since been lost to the ravages of time.

Update: My brother bought me a copy of this game from eBay!

Destroyed in basement flood. :-(

Another one that sounds pretty fun and casual.

This is one of my favorite games of all time. I can't think of a time when I wouldn't want to play it--there's so much fun in throwing dice and shooting the other players.

Two house rules I use:

Cars are repaired based on their rank, so double 4's can restore the smallest car, double 5's the medium or small, and double 6's any.

This keeps people in the race a little longer and has each roll, even if all their cars are wrecked, have a chance to bring them back in the game.

The other rule is the driving through wrecks rule.

As written, you have a 50% chance of barreling through or becoming a wreck yourself. I make it so that you only become a wreck on a 1 or 2, to increase the odds people actually try to wreck through. I've found the 50/50 odds mean people never even attempt.

Rated for what it is. Pure childhood boy fantasy packaged in a box! You can't help but revert to that childhood as you sit at the edge of your seat making sound effects. Crashing, shooting, exploding, accelerating... Pure fast fun. The kind of game you don't mind losing, because dying or getting outpaced was still a heck of a lot of fun!

What's better than a "Mad Max" themed game... Destroy and Go!

This just has to be a ten. The theme is amazing, the gameplay is fast enough not to get tedious but there are nice little decisions to make. A must buy for any Mad Max fan.

It's like Mad Max only it's Mad Me. Sure, it's simple, and somewhat random, but there's a little helicopter, and a bunch of plastic cars with guns, and you get to shoot at your friends, and family as if you were on the 310 during rush hour. If you disagree post it on your bumper, so I can run you off the road in my barbed wire ensconced Prius, or blast you with the 50 cal mounted on my roof ( and don't worry, I use a brass catcher so I can reuse the spent shells).

I noticed a PNP version is available, but I strongly suggest seeking out cars to fit the genre. It's all about the cars. Who cares about running a chit off the road, or flipping a chit, or repairing your chit? I'm sure some hot wheels could easily be modded to fit the bill.

My current copy was made in Ireland, and I'm not sure why I'm so proud of that.

A post-apocalyptic road combat/racing type game with simple rules, a lot of fun, and great art/pieces. One of the coolest rules is that when someone drives off of the end of the board, the last board section is cleared and connected to the front section; any cars still on the last section are left behind and out of the game! It's awesome!

I have a collection of special power cards and extra vehichles I use to play an "advanced" Thunder Road variant:

Fast-paced post-apocalyptic car races in a Mad Max style future world seem quite cool, and they are! This is a light filler game, easy to play, and good for many laughs as you destroy and outrun your opponents, smash or shoot them, and try to win by being the only one left or so far ahead that all others will just see your smoke cloud in the distance. But beware - they might have an attacking chopper left, spoiling your fun, and turning the tide to their favour. One of the better MB games of the 80s.
