I’m sorry for the long, long delay in getting this posted. Ugh.
But it’s over. After six grueling races spanning the globe, our local Formula D league has come to the end of its first season.
Unsurprisingly, the rain dogged us once again, causing incalcuable damage and destruction on the rain-slicked roads. And to really make things interesting, we doubled the points earned in the final race. It was all on the line, and in the end, the final scores surprised some folks.
I was also taken back by how much fun I had overall. I’ve always enjoyed Formula D, but the simple nature of the game made me think I’d be sick of it after six long races. But each race proved to be more intense and nail-biting than the last, and we all agreed that the entire thing became more fun as the season went on. It was a pleasant and unexpected surprise.
So, what’s next? We are looking at starting a second league sometime early next year, this time utilizing the street racing maps on the boards’ flip-sides. And it’s not street racing without over-the-top personalities and illegal weapons like flying boomboxes.
Here are the results. If the math seems off to you, it’s because we dropped the lowest score from each player to calculate the final results. It made it a litle more fair for those that had to miss a session.
Congrats, Scott Martin of Gnome Stew fame! Next season, your car will have a big bullseye painted on it. Literally, I’m going to paint a bullseye on your car.
