Well, not exactly RPG, this is a classic combat game of duelling weaponised cars. A lot less blurb than usual, since for some reason there isn't a full promotional page for reviewers etc:
Drive offensively! This Car Wars Bundle features Car Wars, the classic autoduelling board game from Steve Jackson Games. On the highways of the future, the right of way goes to the biggest guns. Custom-build your car, motorcycle, trike, truck, bus, helicopter, or boat -- load it up with arms and armor -- then take to the open road to see who's King of the Highway -- and who's roadkill.
For just US$17.95 you get all six titles in our Starter Collection (retail value $55) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the authoritative 1998 Car Wars Compendium Second Edition rulebook with all the Deluxe Edition counters, maps, jump-start rules, and play aids -- plus the comprehensive equipment book Uncle Albert's Catalog From Hell and all four sets of City Blocks modular road sections.

The Good Fight
Ten percent of your payment (after payment gateway fees) will be donated to a charity that figures prominently in the history of Steve Jackson Games, the Electronic Frontier Foundation.There's also apparently going to be at least one extra added after launch, as with all of these offers I can't say what or when. Usually anyone who buys before it is added gets it added to the other items.
Car Wars is a game I've had a lot of fun with over the years, and this looks like a pretty good deal. I'm not going to be buying this collection because I already own everything in it in dead tree format, but if I didn't I'd be very interested indeed. Recommended!
