This was the Ben Hur inspired participation game Circus Minimus run by the Reading Wargames Club at Salute 2006. The game was fast paced and easy to play. When I saw the game in action it was surrounded by a crowd of players of different ages, all clearly enjoying themselves.
Great to see the kids playing the gameReplyDelete
This looks great, all seem to enjoy it! Nothing like a bit of racing.ReplyDelete
This brings back memories. We've built such a board in 15mm in the late eighties and played avalon hill's circus maximus on it. Once a year we invited lots of people from the neighbourhoud for a day of racing and gambling. Wonder where the board is now :-)ReplyDelete
A day at the races! Very nice gameboard!ReplyDelete
Great stuff ,fun to see the kids play miniature games as well :-)ReplyDelete
I see the grid on the table is diveded evenly as well with the outer tracks having larger spaces and the inner one's smaller. Pretty clever way of balancing all tracks!
A very good idea to attract young cadres. Coincidentally, we are currenly launching a Circus Maximus project in 28mm at our club. I just bought my chariotReplyDelete
Looks good. I wonder what make the chariots are??ReplyDelete
I remember that game, I wanted to have a go myself, but all the little kids kept jumping in front of me, so I gave in :0(ReplyDelete
