Gentlemen ... start your engines and prepare for destruction! It's Mad Max in a box. This is the Milton Bradley game that you don't want to let your teenage children play if they are of driving age. It would simply make you shudder in fear when they ask if they can borrow the car for the evening. Visions of soaring insurance rates would dance through your head.

Each player begins the game with four vehicles and a helicopter. The object is to ram, bash and smash your opponent's vehicles until you are the only vehicle left operational. Dice rolls determine movement, with modifications being made for road travel, type of vehicle and obstacles (predominately in the form of wrecked and charred vehicles). It's a dice fest with little (if any) strategy. Still, it does evoke hoots of glee when you successfully flip your opponent's cars.

Players can also take the 'speed' route by attempting to out race their opponents to the edge of the two section board. When one car exits the second board, the first board is removed and any vehicles still remaining on that board are eliminated. The newly cleansed board now becomes the second board and the procedure continues until only one car is operational. The owner of that vehicle is victorious.

The game is fun for the first 15 minutes or so, but then begins to drag and degenerate into a series of virtually emotionless dice rolling. This match, too, went on a good 15 minutes too long before Spouey earned the victory.

Finals: Spouey, Keith, Joey, Dave

Ratings: Joey 7, Spouey 7, Keith 7, Dave 6
