Machinas and ScrapIron

March 13, 2013

Two Hour Wargames is developing a new automotive combat tabletop game called Machinas: Death Racers in the Wasteland.

I have also discovered ScrapIron, a print-and-play set of rules also for automotive combat. ScrapIron will be published as a box set in the near future.

Goodbye Gearmageddon

March 12, 2013

Exploding Goat Games, the company that produced Gearmageddon, dismantled its Web site last month. The company no longer has physical copies of Gearmageddon, however the core rulebook will continued to be sold on Wargame Vault for a short while.

Gearmageddon is a well-written, fast-playing set of rules perfect for conventions. The Core Rulebook has several ideas that would be very fun for other automotive combat tabletop games.
 
Best wishes to you Exploding Goat Games. Drive Offensively.
