"Continuing the Osprey formula of engaging game worlds, explored through tight, eminently playable rule sets, all presented in slim, inexpensive rulebooks with lovely and evocative artwork, you can get deep into Gaslands with little cash outlay." - Boing Boing /Wink
"This little 64-page paperback books is… INCREDIBLE. Gasland‘s rules are simplified, the weapons aren’t over the top, and the playing area is well-defined–you’re racing in a televised free-for-all, so there are goals and a finish line to keep the game on track. Movement, field of fire, and collisions are all simple to understand, and you’ll be up and racing quickly." - GeekDad
"There's a new hobby obsession in my life that I am in love with and it's called Gaslands." - The Secret Cabal Gaming Podcast
"In Gaslands (think: a breezier, less crunchy, more modern Car Wars) there are no ranges of miniatures to draw from. Instead, the game encourages you to Mad Max-ify Matchbox and Hotwheels cars to use in your games. How much fun is this? Lots." - Boing Boing
"The value of [Osprey Wargame] books is unbelievably good. Generally, $20 can get you an interesting ruleset with great artwork." - Jacob Stauttener, Must Contain Minis

The game is very template heavy (shooting attacks are even measured with movement templates) as well as token heavy. Generally I am not a fan of loads of templates or tokens (why I did not give this game 5 stars) but overall it does not bog things down much. Also there are a few pages in the back that can be photocopied to make your own templates and tokens (I ordered some of my own from the author) and in the states these can be found online. Also specialized dice called "skid dice" are very important, but again if you do not have these there is a D6 chart you can use.
Overall I think this game is a blast and I highly recommend it!
The Game is obviously heavily influenced by Mad Max and Deathrace movies. You race cars/bikes/trucks/buggies/buses/Monster Trucks/Tanks while shooting and ramming your opponents. The winner isn't usually the fastest but the car that can survive to reach the finish line!
There is an official Gaslands site maintained by the author of the game with printable resources and links to an online car and team builder.
The book contains the complete rules of the game, with templates you can photocopy in the back.
If you are fond of Star Wars X-Wing movement mechanics, you will be quite happy with Gaslands. Your current speed determines what maneuvers you may choose from. You pick a maneuver, place the template, then roll the skid dice to see how much control you had over your high speed murder machine.
