Is Roll20 your only option? I’ve been running Car Wars PBEM games for YEARS and have moved them to Slack. I’m also on my last ‘trial run’ for Gaslands before opening it up to anyone.
You’re welcome to come join the Slack team and get in on the next event if you want!
While we’re talking Harpoons…
Cale shot me with a Harpoon. First uncanceled hit spun my rear to face him. 2nd pulled me a short straight – there was no collision. Third uncanceled pull me again and I hit his side at a weird angle (the Harpoon was Turret mounted).
What type of collision is this? Common sense tells me it’s a T-Bone with my back instead of the front, but at the same time my Gear Four is ‘forward motion’ not the ‘chain speed.’
Since he is the active vehicle, is it a sideswipe at his gear? Is it a ‘head on’ at his gear only?
I looked here and on FB (and even posted a pic there) but couldn’t come up with anything definitive, so we decided to house rule it that my car was the one to initiate the collision, so it was considered a T-Bone.
What gear you ask? Increases based on the number of small straights. Since this was the second one it was Gear 2.
Would love to see something official on this…
We volunteer at a local mission’s thrift store, so yeah I came home with about 7 new cars Saturday. 🙂
Interesting! I like the ‘road’ mixed with the ‘bad’ terrain!
I like blank D6’s… I make chance cubes as my ‘swag’ for x-wing games at tourneys.
They are white – I paint them “bone” – then add the red and blue ‘dots’ – then clear coat them.
Awesome! Thank you! Finally got it to table yesterday after work with my wife. First thing she said was, “we need stuff on the table.” 🙂 I mentioned billboards and advertisements, etc. She agreed that would be good, so these will work GREAT!
You’re welcome! Glad to do it, and have been glad to point others to you as well!
Hmm… Gonna have to try that tape idea!
Very nice! Added to my folder… 😉
Honestly, the Royal Mail price is NOT that bad! I buy my x-wing stuff from coolstuff, and I think they would be a good choice for distribution/partnering, but again I’m NOT disappointed with the ebay route! Yeah, it added to the price and cost me just over 70 dollars US, but for acrylic templates, custom dice (and that signature 😉 ) I am VERY pleased, and I assume Mike is getting more of the profit that way as well, so I feel like I supported HIM directly. (as a self published singer/songwriter I understand that side of it as well…)
I used to build model cars and have sprues and sprues ‘saved’ – mostly with odd ball parts still on them I plan to use for debris and such. This is a GREAT idea!
I agree! I’ve been running Car Wars PBEM for YEARS and collisions ALWAYS slow the game as far as my bookkeeping and such. Such a pain!
Hoping to bring Gaslands to a PBEM soon… After I’ve finally gotten it to table and worked out the rules and such. 🙂 (we have had to cancel three games so far, due to real life issues popping up… hoping for this afternoon finally!)
I bought mine from eBay and got it in the US from Mike in about a week. Here’s a direct link to the one I bought –
Well – it’s been relisted, but here’s the current listing…
I’m brand new to the game – but have been doing Car Wars PBEM for YEARS, so I have a lot of ‘arenas’ on the shelf, so to speak. I plan to see what I can work up…
Dropbox Link is not working – is it possible to share these again?
