Less Races in the Colosseum

Lash your way to victory in classic Ben Hur style or body surf across the finish line. Works either way. Take your choice. This is horse racing with an attitude from the days when men were men and horses were nervous dogfood candidates. Let your opponent kiss the wall, lash his horses and introduce him to your sharp stainless steel hubcabs.

Two Heats and a Final will be run using traditional Circus Maximus rules.

NOTE: The reduction to only two heats is a first in the long history of this event and brought about by the marathon 2013 Final caused, in part, by having too many qualifiers. Consequently, you may wish to note that there will be one less chance to qualify this year and adjust your schedule priorities accordingly.

There will be 15mm miniature horses and chariots for up to seven large tracks. The Heats will consist of up to seven races each, with nine drivers per table and only the winners advancing. Should more players attend any Heat than can be accomodated on seven boards, preference will be given to those who have not yet played in a Heat.

For those predisposed to even more than the usual amount of mayhem one can expect to find at the Circus, a special obstacle course track will be provided for volunteers who relish the opportunity to deal with a stream, bridge and other assorted obstacles. A copy of the most commonly asked questions and rulings is available to anyone who writes to the GM in advance. The rulings will also be available at every heat to any participant.
