A Speed/Range Modifier Chart for CAR WARS

As Kizan requested, here is an alternative speed range chart in text format so that you can cut and paste it into the spreadsheet of your choice.  These modifiers grant additional penalties for hitting speeding targets while maintaining the original flavor of the game.  On average, to-hit mods tend to be more or less in the same range as in the classic pocket box rules.  (The original rules added a whopping -6 to-hit on top of the standard range modifiers– this contributed greatly to making rams much more viable than direct fire weaponry.)  See the previous posting for a jpeg image of the same chart.

    Thanx,

    Sounds kinda cool – shame wordpress won’t let me download it.

      Sure enough. I emailed the file to the one referenced in your comment.

      It’s probably too fiddly for wide consumption, but Earburt and I have used this for the past 20 games or so. There are some tactics implied by the chart that play especially well.
