Although frantic four-wheeled firefights can take place almost anywhere, the most popular locale for autoduellists remains the arena. Whether it's for the fame, the money, or the fact that map sheets are easier to set up than road sections, Car Wars fans love arenas. Here we're pleased to offer over a dozen of the best.
Three arenas – Hammer Downs, New Boston, and the Double Drum – are ready to use. The other 11 arenas are each presented in a quarter-scale format and designed to fit on a single 21" × 32" Car Wars map sheet. In addition to the physical layout and facilities of the arenas, you'll find information on events and tactics for each arena. As a bonus, you'll get special rules for Flying, Ditches and Gullies, Water, Falling, and Banked Curves. Finally, it includes a sheet of counters useful in arena encounters. This has everything you need for arena action; all that's missing is you!
The Car Wars Arena Book was first published in 1988 and was reprinted in conjunction with our Pocket Box project. The rules, therefore, are from 1988; this book is not current with more modern rules.
