Now then, having provided an overview of the Dark Future Tournament rules, onto our very first battle report for . . . .
Hey, that was fun. One more time . . .
|Here's the Datsun turned 9 point Renegade with MG on the bonnet and smoker in the rear. Hmm, that didn't sound any better. I made up smoke markers printed up on cardstock - no dummies for that, though.|
|5 point stripped renegade with a hood MG, rooftop grenade launcher and ready to squirt some shards out the tail box. Yeah, that sounds much better. Just like the oil markers, there are four "real" markers and four blanks.|
|To add insult to injury, the Interceptor slicked the road and dirtied up my new paint job. Luckily, I was at Speed "3" and so by dirt buggy passed through the oil unscathed . . .|
|. . . only to be blown to smithereens at the top of Turn 3. And, since the Datsun made the great tactical decision of tailgating his buddy, the Datsun rear-ended the flaming wreck of the buggy and wound up wrecking himself!|
So, after hours of designing cars, scratch building weapons, reading the rules, setting up the road and making sure the two sides were evenly matched, the game lasted three turns (only seven phases!) and was never even close.
Somehow, though, it felt exactly "right". What were these two dirtside knuckleheads thinking, trying to run down a high-end Interceptor on some god-forsaken, lonely stretch of highway? They got what they deserved, I say.
Next up, the two boys square off in a high stakes game of chicken! Thanks for stopping by!
