Description Edit | History

Originally announced as an extension of Leader 1, Leader 1: Hell of the North has since transformed into a standalone game, albeit one in which the components can be used in the original game from whence this one came.

Game play is similar to that in the original game: "Each of the teams includes different types of cyclists. Every cyclist enjoys the benefits of a free base movement which varies according to his specialty and according to the hexagon at the beginning of his movement. After this kind of movement every racer can add a paying movement. Therefore, the race is based on the riders' energy management: initially the riders are all inside the peloton, where it is easier to save energy, but then they will have to find the proper moment to break away to open the definitive gap ahead of the peloton."

"Hell of the North" is a slang term for a one-day bicycle race originally from Paris to Roubaix that includes many sections of cobbled roads, sections that often lead to damaged bikes, falls and unexpected race results. A mix of new terrain, including cobblestoned sections, is included in the game with forty new tracks on twenty hexagonal tiles. New miniatures are included that match the size of those in the original game, and the game includes "new rider characteristics", according to Ghenos' Alfredo Genovese, to go with the miniatures. While game play is similar to that of the original game, the rules have been revised and updated.

4 Time Trial Rules
Here are time trial rules designed to be used with Hell of the North or Leader 2 rules. These rules are to create more meaningful time trial simulations. These recommendations have been play tested for up to 30 km time trials. Longer time trials would require some adjustments to scale of the course and to the time measurements. Enjoy.

2 AI Team variant (solo or not) v2.0
Here is the new v2.0 of the solo variant I made long time ago. There are some big points which have been clarified and simplified to make it more fluent to play. Changes are always possible, but I think it's good enough to share it !(Changes if there are will come in July-August, not before.) These rules can be played solo or not. Hope you enjoy ! (in this file, a X means a bad asphalt/cobblestone road) (if questions, there can be a "serious" delay : during the year, my days are well filled with my studies... Sorry, but will do my best)
