Mark's #39: Ausgebremst

Ave Caesar is the more popular version of this game - but it's expensive & difficult to find. (Not that Ausgebremst is easy, but in comparison...?) Anyway, Ausgebremst takes the simple movement system devised for Ave Caesar and adds a schmidge bit more control and multiple race tracks. It's simply my favorite car racing game.

Now, it's not for the faint of heart. "Nasty" and "mean" are two adjectives that describe the tactics you must use to win the race. But you'll laugh (hard!) while doing it. (Because of the hosage factor, it's best to play three races and use the scoring system included.)

Finally, I've replaced the original cardboard pieces with Micro Machines, which makes for a much better looking set of components.

Mark -

Z-Man is republishing Ave Caesar soon. I can't wait to see what they do with it.

Or you can check out the Japanees reprint called Q-Jet 21xx. It's a good quality game with plastic cards and metals bikes (chariots)
