Car racing Board game on Computer? - 4/7/2016 9:32:02 PM

I came across this board game on car racing. I was wondering, do they have any car racing games like this on the computer? In the 1970's, I used to have a game on the board with I think Indy 500 drivers and they had picture cards. I was wondering if anyone has any info on computer games like this that you can play on the computer. It's like playing monopoly on the computer. I have a load of fp driving games but this looks more strategic. I am looking online but I don't see anything.

No mate..I'd love to see Car Wars ported properly. Yhough I also think there are several board racing games that would work well..like the popular Formula D.

Man, if they ported Formula D to a online multiplayer game I would fund it or buy it in a second flat! That would be awesome!

I has this one from Avalon Hill

Indy 500

Also a few other games pictured some of you will remember. As far as car racing Speed Circuit (pictured) was also a great game.

I agree! Alot of tactical strategy, management + much more involved, just like auto racing!

The kids and I used to play it together when they were a bit younger. You can play IIRC up to 4 players simultaneously on the same computer! You map the keys any way you want so everyone can crowd onto the keyboard, lol.

But playing single against the AI is excellent too.

I know it's an old game, but don't miss all the community stuff (even if outdated it's "new" to a new player), like track of the month for instance. There are a few total conversion mods, the two that stuck out for me was the Champ Car Legends & 1930's Euro Grand Prix.
