Conestoga 3 ... It Ain't the Colosseum
but it beats Salon B
The big news this year is the reduction of heats from four
to three with up to five races each in an attempt to thin chariot
density per track and thus create faster races ... that, and
the move to Lancaster has provided a bigger colosseum to house
the cheering masses away from the offended ears of the more orderly
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 dogfood candidates. Let your opponent
kiss the wall, lash his horses and introduce him to your sharp
stainless steel hubcabs.
All three Heats and the Final will be run using traditional
Circus Maximus rules. There will be 15mm miniature horses
and chariots for up to five large tracks. The Heats will consist
of up to five races each, with the winners advancing. Should
more players attend any Heat than can be accomodated on five
boards, preference will be given to those pre-registrants who
have not yet played in a Heat.
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.
