We've moved on from Cry Havoc to Battlecars, another of my favourite boardgames from the 80's. I'm sorry to say that I've been blown up two or three times by a five year old, aided and abetted by his elder brother on at least one occasion. I'm not happy.
Anyway, it's an ideal game for the boys being full of rockets, machine guns, flamethrowers, mines and spikes. I think it appeals to their creative side? I've often thought about turning it into a multi-player game using converted Hotwheels diecasts and 18mm figures but I'll probably never get round to it.
If you fancy trying it out for yourself, you can often pick up a copy of the game on Ebay for a few quid, which is how I added some extra components to my original box set. You can also download the rules and sheets from this site:
