COPS 'N ROBBERS
CNR format for MTM 2 was developed by a lady named “Krystal Ize".
Team LAPD was probably the biggest supporters of CNR, which
should come as no surprise given their name.
Unfortunately, this style of play, for whatever reason,
The rules were preserved on the LAPD site long after the team
itself ceased to exist.
MTMG secured a copy of the rules before the LAPD team site
closed its doors, and they’re now available for public display, but
more importantly for historical purposes.
However, Road Reptile is credited with sustaining the format.
He diligently maintained all the CNR accessories (cop & robber cars/trucks, tracks,
etc.) on his site (which is no longer active), as well as an edited version of the
original rules over the past several years, so hats off to him.

It can, however, be refined and developed in such a way that
success is directly proportional to the quality of team work practiced

designed for CNR offer the most fun in our opinion.
the game begins, cops seek out robbers and attempt a “capture”.
A capture can made in several ways:
a robber is captured, he/she will park the vehicle and remain inactive
for the remainder of the session.
If all robbers are captured prior to the end of the session,
the cops are declared the winners.
If all the robbers are not captured when time expires, the

You can actually talk to the people you’re playing with vs. trying to convey messages via the in-game chat feature. Additionally, you can use separate channels for cops and robbers within the chat program so that cops can strategize with other cops and robbers can do the same without cross communication from the other group.
