I was recently contacted by John from Aberdeen Wargames Club to let me know that the club had instigated a club FAVSTVS FVRIVS competition. The photos below show the track from the final race (held earlier this month).
I am reliably informed that Carlos came in first and Andy got the wooden spoon. 😊
John goes on to say "We have also developed a version of the game which we call Faustus Furious Mechanicus Podicus, based on the pod racing scene in Star Wars -The Phantom Menace. There are a couple of variations from the basic rules like snipers and sand worms but it is 98% FF as written. We are planning to put on a participation game at the Claymore Show in Edinburgh in August." There are a few more photos below of the trial pod racing game that they will host at Claymore. The group's original challenge was to build the pods from no more than 5 items bought at a pound shop, but that has since been expanded to include any pieces of junk that people have kept in their boxes of bits.
