I ran the Speeder Bike game again with a few minor adjustments to the track and the rules. I put a gate on the other side of the Hutt palace, to create a short lap. There were a few minor changes to the rules, but I think there will be some significant changes after a few more playtests.

Yorba the Hutt presents - The Bantha 500 from sunny scenic Mos Vegas!
I ran a speeder bike racing game at Fall In this year. Happy to say that it went fairly well for a first-time run at a con. Playtesting showed some issues, and adjustments were made. I think 10 people might be a bit too much for a 3 - 4 hour game. Here are some pics:

The city of New Amsternik has been registering seismic activity for the past 2 weeks. It's a steady rhythm, as if something incredibly large is slowly walking. The tremors are getting more violent, as the pace stays the same. Scouting units have encountered a screen of ESR forces that is virtually impenetrable. Too many air units have been lost, without any reports, and satellites are knocked out as quickly as they can be sent up. Something big is approaching.
Western Alliance forces are in a panic. Their defense tech scientists have been working feverishly to build mechs that can withstand the assault of the Eastern Socialist Republic. They must complete the testing and outfitting of their super-heavy mech designs if there's any way they can stop the ESR from taking more territory. This is a vital supply point for the WA.
ESR military commanders are confident that the new "City-Killer" configuration of their ultra-heavy mech technology will be a complete success. New Amsternik is an important supply point for WA forces, and will give the ESR a much-needed foothold to advance further into WA territory.
Mini Mech v1.6 Rules
Walk / Run / Jump
1 hex ea. L/M/H
2 / 2 / 0
The City-Killer mech is the pride of the ESR. Surely nothing can withstand the magnitude of it's firepower! It can move 1 hex in each of the light/medium/heavy movement phases. It can choose to fire once per turn in any phase.
WA heavy tanks played a key roll in stalling the ESR assault at Ground Station Zebra. They have been hurriedly repaired and restocked in preparation for this defensive action.
