After reading the description and looking at the component list of 'The Convoy', the game 'Revolver' from White Goblin Games immediately comes to mind. Is 'The Convoy' maybe copy or look-a-like or will the gameplay be different from that of 'Revolver'?

The reply I got from Ignacy was: 'Yes, at some point it is close to Revolver. Revolver was our inspiration when designing Convoy.'

Now I'm a sucker for the whole Neuroshima theme so I probably won't be able to control myself, but Revolver did get old after about 3 games. :/

Yes, I confirm - I played Revolver, I like it but I thouhgt it could be done better and I sat to design my own game. That's how Convoy become real.

I bet that Convoy won't get old after 30 games.

I've played Aliens: This Time It's War (the original Alien-themed version of Revolver) about 20 times and (probably due to the theme) it's still a blast almost every single time.

i like aliens more then revolver (which has to many identical cards...but the expansions will fix it)

The convoy looks interesting but with only 70 cards... I do not know

Well, I got it yesterday at Spiel (you were standing right next to the cash register at that point, Ignacy, and I wanted to ask you to sign my copy, but you looked at me so angrily that I didn't dare to shake ) and played it today, and boy is it better. The tactical options are just... wow. It's like comparing a kid's game to an adult's game, and I'm not even talking about the theme. Wonderful work!

Now please excuse me, I'm totally going to put on The Cancelled Earth and play again!
