Maneuver your way to victory in classic Ben-Hur style.

Circus Maximus details the chariot races that occurred in ancient Rome. Teams race around the track three times to determine the victor. Players prepare for the race by selecting the composition of their team of horses, driver's skills, and the type of chariot they will drive. Once the race begins, the players are free to do as they wish to hamper the other racers, including whipping the rider, ramming chariots with scythed wheels, smashing into horses, and running over wrecked opponents.

The Heats will consist of up to seven races, each using 15mm miniature horses and chariots. Players will be distributed as evenly as possible, up to 9 drivers per table.

Key Tournament Rules:

Advancement will be determined by the Heats Most Wins-Points Standard Tiebreakers

Semifinal race(s) will be utilized based on the number of advancing players to fill out a Finals Starting Grid of 8 or 9 drivers.
