This was the first time we had played this Cheapass game, and, true to Cheapass style, we caught on very quickly. After a quick read of the rules, we decided to play the basic game consisting of three races (one of one lap, one of two laps, then one of four laps). We soon discovered the advantages of flinging well aimed cats at passing chariots and tossing the orangutan on the guy behind you.
After the first race we began to see the various strategies that could be employed by the cards available in the next auction phase. That's when things started getting nasty. Dave put a ram prow on his chariot that annoyed everyone he could get behind while Kerry employed wheel knives to great effect on everyone she passed.
The final race saw much treachery and many reversals of fortune and in the end Kerry managed to move from last place to win the race and the game.
Final scores: Kerry $156, Mark $114, Dave $97, Brad $67, Cliff $66
