Conway, in his blue car, has been tasked with a delivery. As he races down the highway, 2 raiders give chase.
Instead of using the Machinas card deck, I wrote down the vehicle stats on index cards. I plan to create a stack of cards with random stats; I can just pick one and go. I chose the stats for the Courier (blue) car.
Also note that I used some brown paper to cover up my Miami Dolphins blanket from prior pictures.
The green car tries to pass, but Conway outmaneuvers him and then cuts loose with his rear-mounted guns. Bullets shred into the green car, damaging its engine (causing a loss of Speed).
The purple car passes the green car but cannot get past Conway. Again, he lets loose with his rear guns, but this time he misses.
The purple car, armed with a spiked ram, bashes Conway and gets past him. The green car starts shooting but misses.
Conway passes the purple car.
Purple tries to bash again, but Conway holds him off. A new raider enters the fray and passes by the damaged green car.
Purple has had enough and gives up the chase. Green passes the orange car and tries to take on Conway, who again fires his rear guns.
Orange accidentally bumps Green, and both spin. Orange regains control but Green flips and is out of the chase.
But it finally gives up. Conway now has open road and can complete his delivery!
- There was definitely more action than my first test game. Having more cars helped, plus I gave my car rear-mounted guns, which resulted in a lot of shooting (that's a good thing).
- I used the full complement of bonus dice this time. I'm not sure if having so many adds a lot of value, and I may try reducing the number.
- Kaptain Kobold sent me a document with his tweaks. I read through them but am not familiar enough to try them out. He has an interesting rule that if there are cars ahead of the player car during a chase then add one to rolls to determine if cars drop out. I actually mis-remembered the rule and reduced my player car's speed. Anyway, it did not really come into play because the Courier remained ahead for most of the game.
