Friday night the Sporadic Gamers Monthly Team got together for our quarterly game. I was inspired by last session's game of Formula De, but there just wasn't enough aggression for my liking, so I got out the Speed Rally rules I picked up a couple years back. I remember thinking that the rulebook with all it's templates looked kind of intimidating but it really is pretty easy to pick up and really versatile with what it does. We might try starting from last place car to first place car after the first round next time. We think this will keep all the cars in the mix and able to stay competitive. Following the rules in the book my car(Mr. Grimm) got really far out in the lead and nobody ever really got the chance to touch me. If we would take turns in the reverse order someone may have gotten close enough to hit me with something that could spin me out.
Early on Uncle Slam and Frankenstein bashed into each other and both failed their rolls Uncle Slam ended up clipping 3 cars in his spinout and there's Frankenstein over there in the grass.
The Black Widow spins out on the first turn.
That's me heading for the jump
I made the jump, but the Giggler was on my tail the whole time.
Elmer uses Hellfire to lay down oil slicks all over the path leading up to the jump. DIABOLICAL!!!
Uncle Slam spins out yet again, Ben did an amazing job RolePlaying the Uncle Slam car. He bashed and rammed at every chance he got, unfortunately he spun out a lot too.
There's Mongo doing what Mongo does best....looking goooood....and yes that's a Johnsonville Brat I had surgically implanted on the back of my skull.
Frankenstein spun out right on the edge of the jump leaving him wide open...
For uncle Slam to bash him right off the edge nearly destroying him.
With The Giggler on my tail, I spun out at one of the final turns allowing him to take the lead and ultimately win the race.
Uncle Slam spins out just before crossing the finish line and plunges to a horrible patriotic death. The squeal of his brakes as he careened over the side showing that he never let go of his freedom of screech.
Inferno Tries to Mount Mr. Grim during the victory lap.
I would love to play this again soon. It really satisfied the gaming itch that I got from watching the Death Race movies. I wish we had more time to devote to it. It would be great to run a season and build up cars and characters.
