On a few different occasions fans of Police Precinct have mentioned the idea of using Match Box cars or Hot Wheels cars to play the game.

What a great idea.

I'm with you!!!



And I'm Ready!!!

I have a 4 and a half year old son, so I do have a little bit of an advantage in this area.



Just to prove how ready I really am, follow this link to see a few images we have recently posted on our blog...

http://commonmangamesusa.weebly.com/

Who else is ready?!!

I invite others to post pictures of your favorite Hot Wheels cop cars (or Match Box or other brand).

Remember, to be truly ready, you need to line up both marked and unmarked cars (the unmarked are the easy part).

Your board will not be quite quiet, oh no...

It will be Rather LOUD!!!

With the sound of revving engines and punks being busted...!!!

I've yet to order my copy of the game. What's wrong with me?! laugh

But, I have been looking at both Hot Wheels and Matchbox for police cars and undercover vehicles.......and coming up with zilch in the police car department. shake

Then I came across these, which are a tad more pricey than HW/M but look awesome:

http://www.greenlighttoys.com/hot-pursuit.html

They are available at Meijer, Hobby Lobby, Menards,Toys'r'us, just about everywhere. I picked up the Milwaukee Wisconsin (my home town!) Police Car along with the Witchita Kansas Police Car. I compared them to the other Hot Wheels I have and they work great together.

Also I'm wondering just how many meeple thugs and on foot police officers come with the game. I'm looking to replace those with Heroclix Cops and thugs/goons as well.

Say, what would the shipping be to Michigan?

I've already got two cars set aside for the undercover cars:

'65 Pontiac Bonneville- perfect for blending in with the street criminals.



And the food truck...cause why not?



laughlaugh

Just need to get a red car........and actually buy the game.

Ok. Just checked the rulebook for those of us wanting to upgrade the car tokens to Hot Wheels/Matchbox/etc.

You'll need:

1 red car
1 green van
6 police cars (depending on how many people are going to play)
6 undercover police cars (this could be anything really see my examples above)

So 14 cars total- here's hoping the all fit in the box!

Fitting 14 HW sized cars in box looks tight, but I predict it would fit (must remove insert of course)
