Speed Rally 4/26/11

We had another game of Speed Rally this past Tuesday night.  We played on a slightly larger table, so I modified the track slightly as well.  There were also 7 players which made things very interesting.

The starting grid; Jeff's '69 Ford Torino Talledega in white, my super cool '55 Chrysler 300 in flat black, Brian's '70 Dodge Challenger R/T in purple, Casey's '69 Dodge Charger in flat grey, Ben's super sized VW Golf GTi convertible in red (too boring to bother finding out what year, sorry!), Adam's 1999 Dodge Charger R/T Concept in red, and Todd's '81 Malibu Police car.

 An overall shot of the track.

Turn 5 proved to be tricky for several drivers.  The '69 Charger is already in the sand, the Golf is maneuvering back into the race, and under Ben's armes the 300 is off the track as well.

The police cruiser tries to pass the 300 again.  An aggressive bash stops that move.

The race leaders get cozy in the straight.

Again the 300 bashes the police car as it tries to pass.  This time the Chrysler pays the price!

Jeff and Brian start their 2nd lap.

The back of the pack.  The Charger Concept and Golf battle for position, while the '69 Charger pulls up the rear, firing a machine gun at any who are in range.

Chaos!  The villian in the grey Charger opens up again with his personal machine gun, but everyone is able to avoid the attack!

Somehow the VW breaks free of the cluster at the back of the pack and closes in on the Challenger.

The '69 Charger powers through the final loop and around the competition.

The race so far.  The Ford has a strong lead approaching the final loop and the finish line.  The Challenger isn't too far behind, and the VW is just out of the shot in 3rd.  the 300 and Malibu are about to finish their first lap, with the Chargers recovering after spinning out in the loop.

Out for blood!  The Golf passes the Challenger, but spins out.  To be spiteful, Brian rams Ben's battered car, bringing it down to 1 hit.  Smelling blood in the water, Casey lines up another machine gun shot...

And scores a hit on the Golf, ending his race day. 

At this point is was late and cars were scattered off the track in all directions due to heavy damage and taking EVERY turn too fast, so we called it.  We already had a winner anyway.  Any other place is still losing! :)

Again, a very fun game.  the course was narrow and brutal with that many cars.  Next week we will run one more race, this time withought the race track tiles!  Point limit is up to 2,500 and the course will be treacherous!


  1. Looks like a lot of fun! Just one question though: Do you keep drivers from race to race?

  2. These have just been learning games, so we haven't been keeping drivers. I wouldn't mind doing a little racing season some time this summer though!
