Jacob and I got in 4 games last night, it's a really easy system to learn, and if you concentrate on just smashing each other the games are really quick! But once Jacob started actually playing for the mission in the last game, it became a lot more interesting and it went for a bit longer, which was cool.
I think the best moment was Jacob side-ramming my pick-up, which flipped right in front of my motorbike, which then plowed straight into it and blew up. It's got a really cinematic feel when things like that happen.
We talked about it afterward and we feel like there's a couple of things that need changing, like how the scenery and road cards move, and how terrible bikes are. It'll be worth play testing to see if they work.
***I was also reading the rules again on the train this morning and saw we did a couple of things wrong...
--you can't ram on a backwards 'brake' move.... if you come into contact with an enemy vehicle during your move while you are braking, they ram you! Which kind of makes sense.
--when you are the attacker and you ram someone, you use your starting damage points to roll for damage, while the defender uses their current damage. So a size 3 vehicle that has taken 2 damage ramming a size 2 vehicle that has taken 1 damage would roll 3 dice vs 1, and if they both survived undamaged and the size 2 rammed back, it would roll 2 dice vs 1.
