After one play I can say this is a rare overlooked gem that has the potential of rivaling Formula De.

Played this with friends on the beach of Ostende, Belgium.

Had lots of fun and the worst suntan of my life actually.

There's still sand in the box.

Very funny game by the way. I like this set of rules.

A truly fun, smash-mouth racing game: the very best of its kind. The rules are simple and I recommend playing it with simple turn order (not with the rule that the chariot order in a round depends on its position relative to the other chariots at the start of a round).
Try it this way and see if you don't agree.

I also love that the designer changed the "hospital" rule so that the repairing chariot that is stopped is not on the track and cannot block others until the next round when it pops back onto the track.

A much faster paced game than Avalon Hill's version although not as detailed. But for a game like this, the pacing needs to at least SEEM fast than boring bookkeeping.

I love it. It is simple quick and fun. Sure I'd like a little more out of a chariot game possibly lanes, or rules for turns, but heck who cares when you are enjoying it. My only gripe is the heal spaces. The fact that you can replenish you cards immediately means that you can stop, replenish cards, and then block those behind you to easily catch up. This really should knock some of the wind out of your race if you want to use it. Otherwise there is no sacrifice.

Okay, as a first play I could just see the possibilities!! I think with 3 or more hand management would be be a brain burner??!! Can't wait to try again!! Not sure if it's a brain burner, but I really do love playing it.

Bought on sale for $5 at GenCon 2006. A pleasant surprise when I finally got around to breaking it out: I love the old "Circus Imperium", and this is a lighter version without all the hit-location chrome and dice-rolling.

[2006.Dec.04] I didn't know quite what to expect when I opened the compact box for this Silver Line game (by Fantasy Flight Games). The quality of game pieces is on par with what I've come to expect from FFG's Silver Line; these are good, solid game bits, but not near the quality of FFG's more recent big box games (e.g., Arkham Horror, Runebound, Twilight Imperium). Arena Maximus is half-racing, half-hand management, and half-"kick your opponent when he's down". (Is that too many halves?) Don't get me wrong, this is not a malicious game at all, but the rules do allow for ramming each others' chariots, blocking one another, and whipping the other drivers... so yeah, there's a bit of maliciousness packed into each round. That said, by the end of the game we were all giggling and laughing like 8-year-olds as we did whatever it took to cross the finish line in one piece... er, sort of 'in one piece'. Think Ben-Hur mixed with "I'll bite your legs off!" (for you Holy Grail fans), and you'll be ready to bring this one to the table. The game plays quickly, and is a cinch to learn. Oh yeah, and try not to crash... twice, that is!

Very Fun fantasy chariot racing game. You use a hand of whips and reins to speed up and slow down your chariot as you whipsaw around a circular track full of obstacles while ramming your opponents and casting spells on them. First one over the finish line wins!

I enjoy this game. It is chariot races where the track is unknown and you reveal as you move on. Using the spells variant I think is a must though.

This is one of the most well balanced competitive games I've ever played. Though this is supposed to be a racing game, it moves much more slowly due to relying more on strategy than luck. Every move must be carefully considered with a healthy dose of foresight, otherwise a charioteer will find themself out of the race quickly. My only complaint is the game is overall a bit more complex than it really needs to be. But once you learn all the little inherent combinations for combat situations the big picture comes into view and it's a lot of fun!

Juegazo! Una joya entre el fango, especialmente si se juega con contrincantes viciosos y mala leche.
