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
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.
