Battlecars?

Anyone remember this one? A really fun game as I remember, easier than car wars... And better in many ways than dark future... (Though the matchbox scale of dark future was a plus point)

Anyway, I'm looking to cannibalise the rules, but don't have a copy of em - don't suppose anyone has a copy of em they could share?

It was a sweet and quick game.

Thanks phil, I have those already, my issue is that they don't encompass the speed (acceleration & braking) or cornering rules - was those omissions that lead to me asking here.

Ahhhh. There's copies for sale at silly prices on Ebay, maybe offer a couple of quid for a scan of the rules?

I seem to remember a counter and a stepped speed gauge.

e2a: There's some scans here, but not sure how useful... http://boardgamegeek.com/images/boardga ... battlecars

I've asked over here... http://www.lead-adventure.de/index.php? ... #msg679374

Maybe ask this bloke? http://level2-wardy-la.blogspot.co.uk/2 ... ecars.html

No mate, been a fucker of a week... When I get some time I'll be putting it all together and working out what else I need for a game, was contemplating asking Ian at fenris to make me some ammo counters (and some bases to model up mines, oil slicks etc)

If you come into possession of any files.. Cough cough... :dodgy: ... Let me know..
