October 18, 2019: Autoduel Weekly: Vehicle Build Points
In Car Wars Sixth Edition, you will need to construct a car before you're ready to enter the arena. Each car in the game is designed using Build Points (BP), an abstract measurement that suggests the relative power of the selected weapon, accessory, or upgrade card. Items range in cost from one to eight build points, and the start of every game session includes deciding on the number of build points that each player will work with for that event. The Car Wars Sixth Edition rules suggest two game sizes -- a small game (16 BP), and a large game (36 BP) -- though you're not restricted to those two choices. You want to run a 20 BP game? Go for it!
What do items cost? Here are a few examples to give you a better feel for the Build Point system.
There are several weapon, accessory, and upgrade cards in the Car Wars Sixth Edition box set, giving players several choices when sitting down to design a new car. And in addition to the cards found in the core game box, the miniatures expansions also include new weapon, accessory, and upgrade cards to broaden your car design options.
