Description Edit | History

The game aims to be a simulation of the 1 Mile/1,500 metre race with the ability to match runners from different eras against each other, so for example Jack Lovelock and Sidney Wooderson can take on Coe and Ovett. The statistics of the historical runners have been modified so that they can compete with the current racers.

Components are the rule book (a5 format), 7 sections of 'track' , four charts (summary, race pace/progress record and timing charts for 1500m and mile), 36 cards for runners and record sheets for races and a training log for the optional campaign rules. Four dice (two yellow, red and green)and two counters are also supplied.
(Extract of the following review)

"The Metric Mile has long been a favorite game of many gamers, and not all of them sports replay gamers as it appears from time to time in all sorts of 'best games ' lists. Frequently played at conventions as a multi-player game, and the subject of many postal games in days gone by, the game was designed way back in 1986 as no more than another solo replay game, and its appeal to all shapes and sizes of gamers surprised me then and continues to do so. Or maybe not quite so much as it did, for I have to say that when I worked on it again recently ...

... I appreciated the quick easy-to-understand-but-difficult-to-suss-out game system that does in fact produce races over this classic track distance ( one mile and 1,500 Metres, despite the title) that are accurate and realistic and yet require a lot of on-the-fly decisions for each runner."
A quote by the Game designer
