I found my box game of Battlecars and the extension set of Battlebikes in the loft this evening. It's a really great 'beer and pretzels' type one braincell game, which naturally suits me down to the ground.

I spent many PE and A level Public Affairs lessons in the Sixth Form at school playing this with my fellow skivers, as it was quick to set up, quick to play and often very funny. The rest of the time we played a lot of Squad Leader, Panzer Leader, TTG micro games and Cry Havoc, the old Standard Games medieval skirmish boardgame (we also played quite a lot of MERP, Laserburn and Call of Cthulhu but that's another story).

Anyway, I picked up my current copy of Battlecars on Ebay a couple of years ago and had a few games with the boys before shelving it when the wife complained. I'm now going to dust it off and set up a few games with the kids while the other half isn't looking.

Dangerous I know, but worth the risk.

If you can find a decent copy on Ebay, then it's worth getting hold of for a few quid, especially if you want to get your kids interested in gaming. Check out this review and you'll see what I mean:
