So inspired by Mad Max (one of my favorite movie series). Never played it, but very 80's.

I was wrong, there is definitely one other con tradition and it would be this game. We finish at least one night of each con by having a rowdy round of Mad Max TBG.

What else can I say? It's cheesy. It's not a good game really. But, it's glorious. We get loud and obnoxious, other tables stop to watch. Shit gets blown up and I lose.

Every goddamn time. Shouldn't really care as much as I do. But, it burns! The agony of defeat is profound.

New Friend Paul who won Honshu and Fuji Flush also took home the Thunder Road bragging rights. Choke on it Paul!

This was the last game on Friday.

I grew up with this game, and it's a wonderful balance of luck and strategy, with just enough tension to maintain high replayability. I don't think I've ever played this just once in a sitting; it usually skews toward 3-5 plays.

1986

1986 brought us Thunder Road. Although I really like racing games, Thunder Road doesn't really qualify. It is much more about outlasting everyone else and killing them before they kill you. Driving very fast is one way to do this, but hanging towards the back and ramming is also a good option.

It comes in a giant box full of classic Milton Bradley plasticky goodness and a couple of boards that are almost certain to be somewhat warped by now. But it looks great on the table. It has a gritty, post-apocalyptic, yet 1980's feel.

Thunder Road is one of my favorite filler games. It does an excellent job of really telling a compelling story and immersing you in the game despite how fast it plays. It is sure to elicit cheers and moans, yet contains a decent amount of meaningful decisions as well. It's not deep, but it is very thrilling.

NOTE: We do play two minor houserules, which I think improve it significantly.

1. Driving through a wreck only crashes your car on a 1 or 2 instead of 1, 2, or 3 as in the rules.
2. Repair rolls are based on the rank of the car. Rather than only double 6's allowing a repair, double 6's can repair any one of your cars, double 5's can repair your medium or small car, and double 4's can repair your small car only.

Mad Max: Fury Road

I really wanted to see this when it came out, but it isn't my wife's sort of thing, and I rarely get to the cinema anyway, so it passed me by... but I'd heard good things about it, especially from my brother whom I usually trust. So with some birthday money I finally picked up the blu-ray and watched it with a neighbour.

The film is basically one long and very intense action sequence and it barely lets up from the first moment, when we see Max (Hardy) being captured by a party of War boys. After that we follow Max and Furiosa (Theron) as they flee the citadel with the wives of Immortan Joe (Hugh Keays-Byrne aka the Toecutter). Hardy turns in a decent performance as the enigmatic Max, while Theron and particularly Nicholas Hoult as Nux, steal the show with standout performances. The action sequences are amazing too.. and, even without seeing the documentary footage, you can tell there is a gritty realism to everything that attests to the amount of live action stunt work that was used instead of a heavy reliance on CGI.

Overall, I really enjoyed Mad Max : Fury Road, and have since watched it again.

Oh What a Day! What a lovely day!!!!

Soft Reserve: $73

BIN: $86

Condition: Very Good

Condition Notes: complete except for one of the two red dice. One of the chopper blades won't snap on properly and thus comes apart very easily, but nothing broken. This is the UK edition. The box itself has two split corners, with some additional ripping on one corner, probably where some tape was on the corner once a long time ago before I got it.

Edition: UK edition

This was in the cupboard at my mum's house, and since it's rated as age 7+ we got it out to try with Joe (5 y/o).. we played by the full rules, which weren't that complicated, and Joe did very well to grasp the mechanics of the game... he did get a bit over-enthusiastic for attacking with his chopper and wanted to do that most turns, instead of the once-per game board in the rules, but overall he did very well. I wasn't a huge fan of the game and it definitely seemed to drag on, to the point where we just wanted anyone to win and end the game.

== NEW GAMES ==

Thunder Road - 1 play - thumbsupthumbsdown
First Published 1986


My family picked this up back in the late 80s... it was at a time when we were into Games Workshop games of the time, and I'd really wanted Dark Future, their Mad Max style game of car-nage. Thunder Road had a similar theme too it, but was nowhere near as cool looking, or complex.

I have no memory of actually playing Thunder Road and certainly when I got it out of the cupboard at my mum's house, over Easter, in an attempt to entertain my Eldest, I had to read through the rules and try to figure out how to play. The game is rated 7+, however my 5 year old coped really well with the simple rules and the idea of the game... he did want to keep attacking with his chopper and didn't quite get that it could only attack once per game board.. but certainly managed ok with rolling and moving his cars, rolling the bonus "road" dice, and attacking when possible.

The movement and combat are very simple and heavily luck dependent... especially the 50% chance you have of a car being wrecked by a collision. And, although it seems like it would be a pretty quick game, it really dragged on, and after a while we were just hoping that someone would eventually win. The boy enjoyed it though, and we'll probably play it some more... Ironic that my kids may get more out of the game than either myself or my brother ever did.

Greetings!

My name is:
United States
Houston
Texas
flag msg tools
mbmbmbmbmb


I can be found in Houston, Texas, 77018.

I will be away from the above location for the week of May 16-20.

Games I'm Currently Enjoying:

First, the boring obvious ones:
Pandemic: Legacy - We're enjoying the progressive storytelling aspect of the game, even though I totally screwed up a significant rule at the beginning (I think it just made the game easier for us, fortunately). I'm really looking forward to SeaFall.
Codenames - I came to this game much later than most due to bad timing, but the hype has been completely true in my case. It's been a huge hit with every group I've tried it with.

Now the more unique or interesting ones:
Kraftwagen - A really neat economic game about the burgeoning German car industry in the early 1900s. It's a clean design with a lot of different avenues to pursue.
Leaving Earth - A very clever game about the burgeoning space exploration industry in the early 1960s. Although I think the art and game design are beautiful, I doubt I'll ever inflict this one upon my friends; I'll just play it solo and geek out by myself.
London - In a very strange development, I pushed this on my wife as a two-player game recently. Little did I realize that I unleashed a monster! She loved it, and we ended up playing dozens of games in a few weeks. It's especially great with the Ben-Luca Variant.

Thrifted Games I'd Love to Find in the Container:
Thunder Road - Yeah, I know--the chances are very low ever since Mad Max: Fury Road came out. But you never know! One of a number of games that I owned and then passed on, and now regret.
Gumshoe - Another long shot. I have this requested on the Thrifting for You list, and I'll make the same offer here: If I receive this, I promise that once I have played it that I will pass it on to whomever wants to experience it next.
Others:
Ricochet Robots, Adventurers: Temple of Chac, Omega Virus, DungeonQuest, Roma, Roma II, Mystery Rummy (any but Jack the Ripper), 10 Days in... (any but Africa or Europe), Animal Upon Animal

Things I Like in Games:
-Complete
-Playable
-Fun

As you may have gathered from both the games I'm playing list and the games I want list, my tastes are pretty wide. Old, new, co-op, solo, competitive, economic, strategy, family, party. It's all great! The only thing I definitely don't want is a war game.

Additional Info About Me:
I'm currently in the process of (trying to) severely reduce the number of games I own. In fact, I have a blog about it (shameless plug: One Year Purge). That means that I will be putting a lot more into this package than I plan on taking out. So don't worry about finding something I'll like. I'm really just using this box as another method of getting some more of my games into the hands of people who will appreciate them. If you've got nothing that matches anyone else, send it to me!
