Just When You Thought It Was Safe to Go in the Water . . .

If you thought the roads were tough in 2040, you ain't seen nothin' yet. Boat Wars takes the action and excitement of Car Wars off the land and into the water!

This supplement gives you complete, official rules for movement, combat, and construction of boats and hovercraft. It also provides details on sharks and other aquatic menaces, aquabikes, gadgets, and more! Included are full-color counters for all the vehicles in the game, and a large blue-water map to play on.

Boat Wars is a Car Wars supplement (you will need Car Wars or Car Wars Deluxe to play) that includes:

  • More than 100 full-color counters for boats and hovercraft.
  • Two boat turning keys and other movement templates.
  • Two geomorphic 21" × 32" map sections, showing safe channels, islands, and the tricky water in between.
  • A 24-page rulebook.

The maps for this supplement were originally printed on oversized paper, so this PDF contains two formats: the original map size, for those with access to oversize printers, and modified versions that span multiple regular sheets. The original Boat Wars set came with two copies each of two different maps; this PDF version only includes one copy of each . . . just print two copies of each map!
