Car Wars eh?  Tenth of a second phases?  Two dozen characters and half a dozen vehicles per player? I'm down with that.

Entire game can fit in a little click box. Entire character can fit on a single half-sheet of paper, including art.

Well, that's interesting:

SJG has always been very controlling about their IP, and as a result were very late in moving to DTRPG. They've also been highly resistant to sales. But now they're allowing BoH to sell their core and tech books in bundles that, while still pricey by BoH standards, are far cheaper than buying the books individually.

David Johansen:
It's probably the smartest thing they've done to promote GURPS in twenty years.

It was always one vehicle per player in our games. All the killer pedestrians were run by the GM.
