BRIKWARS is the plastic-brick tabletop wargame that throws the peaceful worlds of construction toys into wanton chaos and destruction!

Bring and build your own armies, vehicles, and monsters in an all-out war for construction toy glory, with a robust system to incorporate whatever you create. If you can build it, you can bring it to battle in BRIKWARS!
Brik: Tactics battles result in a lot of dismemberments.

“I bet you get a lot of e-mail from annoying people who say, “Hey, look at how I changed BrikWars, because I didn’t like it the way it was, and blah blah blah.” This is another one of those e-mails. Anyhow, I just posted my mod at www.gamedevblog.com, if you’re interested – it’s like QuikWars but even Quiker. Once you’ve set up, anyway.”

Jamie’s “Brik: Tactics” is a cool little mod that bases damage on chopping off minifig limbs, creating a horrific scene of mutilated combatants and discarded body parts strewn across the battlefield. Awesome!

(As an old-school Lego guy, I never took this route – the minifigs of the Eighties could have their shoulders and hips detached, but after a certain number of times they wouldn’t go back on again. Minifigs today are manfuactured to be more durable, so battle mutilation is a lot more feasible nowadays, but old habits dies hard.)

Although described as a BrikWars mod, “Brik: Tactiks” is a pretty unique and full-featured game in its own right, with a number of features that make it well worth a look. I especially like the modified initiative rules, and the callouts to influences from other wargames.
