A while back there was a post on the SJ Games Car Wars forums about “tri-corner” arenas. This January I was trying to set up an “Amateur Night”, but in the end there was only three of us. The arena that I drew up was great for four (or two) cars, but not so much for three. So I flipped the battlemat over to the hex side and drew a small three-sided arena:
The starting area for each car is walled-off to prevent drivers from just shooting at each other without driving. Originally, I included additional barriers but they ended up being quite annoying in play so I only left the “pillars” (camera towers, actually). It’s not very big, but works well for short amateur duels. (You could also use the same map but with 1” scale cars for a bigger arena.)
I need to think of a good name for this. So far I’m leaning towards the “Okotoks Triad”. I figure it’s an amateur outdoor arena.
I haven’t actually seen any other arenas drawn on a hex grid. Is this something that you have tried?
