Ted runs a variety of games at Recruits and has for many years. I've had the chance to play in a few of them and they are always great fun.
This was no different. The rules used for this game were Axles and Alloys (which are available free here). These are a quick playing set of rules that aren't meant as a simulation, but instead try to allow you to play a cinematic version of a demo derby with guns thrown in. If you've seen Death Race or Mad Max, you know what I'm talking about.
We started with 10 cars in the race and 3 were still moving at the end. The winning car completed about 1 and a quarter laps. It isn't the fastest moving game, but it is full of mayhem and explosions. What more could you ask for?

|Another angle of my car.|
Overall, this was a great game. As I said, it doesn't play very quick. That is kind of a draw-back for a con game, but there were enough explosions and mayhem, that it still works. I have downloaded the rules and will be testing out my skills at converting a few Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars in the near future.
