March 2, 2008: Has It Really Been Over 20 Years?
I first played Car Wars in the fall of 1986. We played with the pocket box - and Truck Stop - and it was easily my favorite game for a good four or five years. I spent hundreds of hours designing cars and playing the game, time my parents and teachers thought was wasted. Well, I guess I showed them!
Some chats in the office a few weeks ago led to me dragging out some of my old ADQs again, including the Fall 2037 issue (my very first issue!). Rereading those old issues, especially the stories, was a great way to unwind after a long week of intense meetings. Unfortunately, as I was going through my collection I encountered some gaps. How can I be missing issues? This is bad! Time to hit eBay.
