Reluctantly crouched at the starting line ...

Yes, it was Gaslands the other night at the game store. With just three of us present, we each took a multi-vehicle team for a Death Race. I was Met At Work (pair of construction vehicles) while my opponents were Notorious RGB (red, green, and blue cars) and Born To Be Wild (the trio of dusty post-apoc jalopies)

As usual, it was carnage right out of the starting gate, with all the racers bunched up. We had a few collisions and gained some hazard tokens as the race began.

Heavy Metal Thunder's crush attack and big tires were a huge help in this race, as the rig didn't pick up hazards driving through rough terrain and could just roll right over other vehicles, like Blue Monday above, which was the first racer to wreck.

The grenades from Notorious RGB resulted in Overkill becoming the next vehicle to get destroyed, right at the second gate and just before the home stretch.

But Who Can It Be Now? soon followed, with an explosion ...

That detonation ended up taking out Green Manalishi as well.

But even though Born To Be Wild still had all its vehicles running, Red Rain was able to streak ahead past the finish line, winning the race.

I very much approve of the team and vehicle names :)

Love the construction vehicles and the dusty ones as well. The latter have a nice aesthetic and look relatively simple to do, which is always a plus :)
