Will Micro Machines be too big as player pieces?
How big are the player pieces?
I know... A bit of a silly question.

I thought the same thing. The micro machines are a hair too big. If you want to recreate Formula D with Heroscape terrain though, they work perfectly. You need a living room's worth of floor space to do it though...

No, it's a great question.

I personally got to the point where I just wasn't excited about pushing rice around in Formula D and decided to do something about it.

Turns out that there are LOTs of race tracks suitable for Micro Machines.

And if you want to make your own, one or two copies of Moto Grand Prix have enough pieces to build nearly any track (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/35438/moto-grand-prix).

Eventually I wound up with a rule set I like better than Formula D anyway - mainly because you can build your own cards to your own specification, but the abiltiy to shoot other cars is nice too (http://boardgamegeek.com/boardgameexpansion/38987/speed-rall...).

Here are galleries of tracks I've build or bought for use with Micro Machines, including lots of 'real tracks' built with Moto Grand Prix parts(http://groups.yahoo.com/group/speedrally/photos/album/193237...).

PS: I HAVE tried to get Formula D tracks printed to Micro Machine scale, but was never able to find a printer who could do it.
