Very enjoyable weapon- and brawl-based car racing game. For a racing game, it first felt weird that the game has no mechanisms whatsoever for curves or bends - the bends are just cosmetics: mechanisms-wise, they might as just well have been straights.

But it was soon obvious that going smoothly through a curve was so far from the point of this game that it was simply omitted - instead, what you do is try to zig-zag to avoid obstacles in the road, and ram, shoot or flame your opponents. And in those terms, the game succees tremendously.

Dice controls how much your car can change lanes, how much your energy overheats, and how much damage you do when attacking - but all rolls can be mitigated, depending on distance, speed and how much you accelerate, so it's a toying with probabilities, which result in a lot of excitement as the dice are rolled.

(That said, personally, the game would have gained quite a bit if the bends had been designed so that you need to do a lot of lane changes to the right in order to take a right bend. But it's a minor peeve.)

A blistering weapon loaded racing game with a phenomenal feeling of speed.

Heat & Tyre checks, Lane Change restrictions and constant position changing make for tight situations throughout.

A brilliant gear changing mechanism which works perfectly.

Soon to be released by Rackham/AEG games, and from what I've seen the game looks awesome.

Created Cyberboard version.

Rating lowered from a 10; due to being overshadowed by the Rackham/AEG release.

Racing game. You get a dashboard where you record your gear and speed. You can go faster, but it requires a heat check. Or you can make your way up the speed track slowly, but safely. You have number of tokens to modify how you travel (brake, armour, accelerator....). You build the map with a bunch of modular sections each game. The dashboard is a very unique way to track your speed.

Fast, Fun, Racing Game. I really like the shifting mechanism and the Lane Changes.
More Speed = Less lane changes

Doesn't seem to play quite as well as I hoped after a read-through of the rules. People who have fallen behind can't gamble to the extent they can in Formula De.
