Hey, it only took 12 YEARS from conception to execution.

We finally ran a game of the Tibetan Corpse racing Olympiad, a pulp era game of evil sorcerers in Tibet who kidnap children to participate in an unholy Tibetan Zombie (Ro-Lang) race. This was a playtest and we put in some work developing new concepts for the game when we found some holes to plug up.

Thank you for your time and your interests.

You sure haven't lost your wackiness. I remember playing in a "Grand Prix" racing game of yours at Historicon several decades ago. We all had a blast. Good luck with your game this year.

Ooh, tell me some more about this "Grand Prix" game please.

Le Grande Cirque was the system, it was a Victorian Science fiction racing game of the "everything with the kitchen sink" game design school. I ran a series of these games, with increasingly weirder settings. It was very participatory and silly.

This is from Le Grande Cirque du Wabash (Wabash Indiana). There were other races at the Pyramids and in the Yucatan..

That was Yucatan.. you had to answer riddles if you drove through the territory of the Mighty F'Vah, Jungle God. Here's a link to some images

Here is the late Otto Schmidt, giving it his all:


Here is the late Al Hadden, race winner:

(that's John McCewan of Reverisco to his right, second place in that race).

You don't see a good corpse race too often.
