The televised event schedule will be as follows:
June 11th: Death Race

But the Monday Night Games thread has the campaign game on June 18th. Which is correct?

18th June - was agreed to swap with Pikeman's Lament, because of some obscure football event.

First game was moved because Grahame wants to watch the world cup. Or something like that. I probably should have paid more attention. ???

Answers to a few questions that have come up.

1) Vehicles do not have to be completely WYSIWYG, so long as they're representative and you're clear with your opponents before the game. e.g. Some cars could pass as performance cars or trucks, just be clear about what's what and you're fine.
2) Same goes for weapons. Not everything has to be represented on the vehicles and we're fine with "counts as" so long as it's made clear.
3) Vehicles only have to roll once per game on the wrecked vehicle table no matter how many times they're wrecked, and only if they're wrecked at the end of the game. This saves us from having to keep track of which vehicles have re-spawned and how often.
4) The rules for interrupted final positions apply even if the obstacle the obstacle is one that your vehicle would normally ignore. Basically, you should never finish your move on top of an obstruction or another vehicle.
5) The FAQ says that you need your opponent's permission to fit a turret-mounted ram. You have permission.

At the end of each game I'll need to know the result, each team's updated rating and the number of audience votes earned. That means the total number of votes, not just the number unspent at the end (so don't be afraid to use them).

Updated list of participants, based on everyone who's actually got back to me. Still room for more, just let me know. Doesn't matter if you have your own vehicles or not, we can accommodate you.

And before anyone asks, the reason I keep banging on about numbers is that I just need to make sure we have enough gates, skid dice, templates, tokens etc. to support the number of games we'll be playing. As we saw last night, sharing templates across tables is a pain.

As a note, I have 3D files for templates - if anyone wants a 3D printed set let me know and I'll work out a price.

I am trying to choose a team sponsor for the campaign, but I am a little confused about the Miyazaki Perk 'Showing Off'
The rule book states that ALL cars in the team have to resolve a Shift, a Slide, a Spin, and not wipeout, within a single Gear phase.
Does this mean that each car has to all 3 of those things without wiping out, or that each car must do at least one of them?
E.g. In a 2 Car Team, during Gear phase 2, Car 1 does a Shift Up to gear 3, and suffers from a spin result, but no Slide, and Car 2 just does a Shift up to Gear 4, without Sliding or Spinning.
Will the team receive 2 audience votes, or none?

I think probably none, but what do I know? ;)
Games Played(Armies): Warhammer Fantasy 8th Ed (Beastmen); NetEpic (Space Marines); WH40K (Tau, Space Marine, Necron); Gruntz(Hammers Slammers, Colonial Defence Force); Song of Blades & Heroes; Dux Britanniarum(Saxons); Necromunda(Delaque); Rogue Stars; Infinity(JSA); Ronin; Test of Honour;

Rob Farley

Every car has to do all 3 things in order to get the bonus. It's tricky to pull off, but you get the chance every gear phase so with a bit of luck you can really rack up some votes.

It's obviously easier if you have fewer vehicles, and the single Miyazaki hyper-car approach is one option. But the injury rules in this campaign may make that less than ideal.

Is it too late for me to join in this campaign? If not, I'll try to get some cars and a list put together for Monday.

Rob Farley

You can absolutely join in. Tom's joining us on Monday after missing the first round, so you'll have company. You'll need a standard 50-can team, which will only put you 3 points off the last place teams so you can definitely catch up.

Excellent, count me in. I'm preparing my team now.

Sorry, I am not going to make it again tonight, as I have hurt my back.
