Dark Future
Just a quick blog this one. Does anyone remember the board game?

Does anyone still play it?

Is there an on line version that I perhaps haven't been able to find?

Yes, I remember it. I was reading up on some old rules recently. I also had the novels, they weren't very good though.

I really loved the design of the LeMans style cars.

I never played the game, couldn't tell you that much about it. However a shop near me had 4 metal bikes for sale for around £9 about 15 years back. Kicked myself for not buying them.

I recently bought this at a games convention, it had loads of extra cars, bikes and (terrible) metal figures with it. the rules are downloadable from the GW site, they have been bundled with a load of add-ons too.

Not played it yet but printed the main rules book out and read about half of it, something keeps distracting me...

Yeah I remember it and own a copy. Great fluff/models etc but the game was very very clunky.

Sorry, I can't find the rules on the GW site.
May you copy the link to the rules, please?

You might find an online version of the board game on the link below.

I think they do a lot of boardgames, but I havent tried them yet.

Wow, that's some link Nielsh! They have a lot of games and I will explore later on. Thank-you.

Does not seem vassal has it.

A good place to look for further information. Maybe try and make a thread about an online version of the game, some might be able to help you out.

I loved this game, and never really got to play it enough before it ceased to become flavour of the month and was shunted aside. White Dwarf had some great fluff and extras for it for a couple of months.

God I would be all over a digital version.

Thanks, I found the pdf link.
