Our HAULiday Sale is going strong, with 13% off selected items. We're tossing in free kitty-cat dice. We're giving away double promos. BUT we needed a way to commemorate Friday the 13th. So for each physical order of $13 or more placed between now and Sunday midnight, you will also get a Munchkin zombie pawn. (Our color choice, while supplies last.) Everybody needs a miniature zombie mascot! And if you need still more zombies, (and really, who doesn't?), then*check this out!

December 11, 2019: Car Wars At PAX

At PAX this last weekend, we taught the Car Wars Sixth Edition game to dozens of players both fans of the classic and those who have never before participated in an autoduel and we were overjoyed with the response!*

Edward Fadigan posted to the Kickstarter campaign:


"Got to play this at PAX Unplugged this weekend, and as gorgeous as this looks on the table, it's TWICE as magnificent in your head as you play it.

Seeing the hinged relationships between Control and Tires on the Dashboards, with the same link between the Speed and the Power Plant, immediately impressed me as making resolving 8 rules and modifications, as easy as opening a jar of candy.

It's LITERALLY child's play, but still manages to translate most of the crunch decisions that made Car Wars 1e such a fun game to play.

And the MINIATURES. I got to touch them, and photos do them no justice."

And also in the Kickstarter comments, Waldo Jeffers posted:


"Having played a round at PAX yesterday, I am more excited for this game than ever! I was on the fence at first, but pledged at the $75 level. After playing, I have upgraded to the $140 level- I really look forward to getting this one."

Additionally, Twitter also has something to say after playing the game:

I enjoyed my hands-on play of Car Wars at #PAXUnplugged. The Kickstarter is doing great! @thF00L and I can't wait for the final game @SJGames! pic.twitter.com/RVDzWPmTCM&mdash; Steven Starkey (@Steven_Starkey) December 9, 2019

Thank you to everyone who played the game, and extra thanks to all of you who shared your thoughts on the game with the world!

Back the game on Kickstarter today!

Long-time fans of SJ Games will know the name John M.

(Ford also wrote the Star Trek novel How Much for Just the Planet, a farcical tour de force combining Gilbert and Sullivan, film noir, and golf that I have owned since I swiped a copy from the band hall in high school .*.*. a longer time ago than I am prepared to admit .*.*. and incorporating concepts from his earlier The Final Reflection, an examination of Klingon culture that is as serious as Just the Planet is hysterical.) He passed away, tragically young, in 2006, leaving behind friends, family, and a collection of writing that would do any author proud .*.*. much of which went out of print almost immediately after his death.

Isaac Butler wanted to find out why. In the process, he managed to put the right people together to bring much of Ford's work back into print starting late next year. The fascinating story can be found in this Slate article.

Mr. Butler, from Ford's many fans at SJ Games, thank you for your diligence and your reportage.

.*.*. after decades!

We have licensed Olde Sk&uuml;&uuml;l (think: Battle Chess) to recreate the original Origin Systems Autoduel game and put it on Steam. This game was beloved when it first appeared. Now it's a nostalgia thing as much as anything, but still FUN. Good game quality on 8-bit rules over boring play no matter how fancy the graphics.

(Before you ask: no, this is not an implementation of the upcoming Car Wars Sixth Edition. It's more than 30 years too early for that. This is, as close as possible, the game that OSI released in 1985!)

(Also before you ask: This is not related to inXile's filing a few years ago for the Autoduel trademark and statements that they were working on a game. That was completely without our knowledge or assent. The legal bills to protect our rights hit six figures, but the judges ruled in our favor. inXile is now a Microsoft studio and, to the best of our knowledge, not engaged in that sort of stuff any more.)

Some Q&A with Rebecca Heineman, president of Olde Sk&uuml;&uuml;l:

Tell us a bit about yourself and the studio!

Olde Sk&uuml;&uuml;l is a game studio founded by four "Old School" game developers who wanted to make games the old-fashioned way, because they are fun! I've been in the game industry since the Atari 2600 days. My first claim to fame is winning the National Atari 2600 Space Invaders tournament, and it's been downhill ever since! Some notable titles I've created are Tass Times in Tonetown, Bard's Tale III: The Thief of Fate and Dragon Wars.

What drew you into bringing back Autoduel?

Because in California, our street motto is the same asCar Wars:*"Drive Offensively!" We can expect to see better graphics and better sounds, including a satisfying crunching sound when you take out your opponents.

When can players expect to see the game?

March 2020.

Steam, right? For what systems?

Steam, Apple, and many other platforms!

We feel privileged and honored to be entrusted with such a recognizable brand and hope to drive our super-deluxe cruiser straight through a wall and into your heart (not fatally, we hope).
