POd Race II has started. Click here to see how to play and what you could win.
Here's how it's played...
Each day, come to this thread and pick a racer that is racing in that days event. Depending upon where your racer finishes, will determine how many points you receive. If your racer finishes 1st, you will receive 6 points. If you're racer finishs 2nd, you get 3 points. For 3rd, you get 1 point and everything past that gets you no points. The game will last 7 days. For the best chance of winning, you need to play everyday, but is not required. At the end of the week, the one with the most points, wins.
During each day, there may be updates to the game that may include clues to the outcome of the race. These clues may or may not hint to which racer may or may not win. The point is, you may change your racer at any point during that days game up until the game is updated for the next day.
The prize for winning this game will be Anakin's and Zam's Speeders.
This prize is being supplied by our friends at Federation Toys.
This game will be updated every evening between 8 and 10 pm, central time.
The winners(the racers) of the podraces are selected randomly. The outcome of all races have already been determined. In the event of a tie at the end of the week, the tie will be broken with the roll of a chance cube.
Nothing compares to the sheer spectacle of Podracing as witnessed in the worlds of the Outer Rim. Racers tear through rugged landscapes driving all manner of non-standardized machines in a contest of raw nerve and razor-edge calculation. Each racer has fought blistering competition to get on the circuit, rules are seen as guidelines, and safety concerns are thrown to the wind. To witness an all-star event like the Boonta Eve Podrace on tatooine is to live the thrill of racing at it's most intense.
In the huge podracer hangar at Mos Espa Grand Arena Podracers are tuned to their best by busy pit crews until the last minute before the race. Heavy-duty overhead cranes help with maintenance and repair. Race officials attempt to certify the vehicles, but the crews use every tactic imaginable to distract, threaten or bribe them.
Somewhere in Mos Espa there is a little-know official who legally rules the city, but the wealthy gangster "First Citizen" Jabba the Hutt is really in control. Jabba presides over the Boonta Eve race from the best box seats in the arena, thinking only of his profits he will reap through his gambling organizations. His major-domo Bib Fortuna attends to every arrangement. Keeping Jabba's entertainment running as smoothly as his criminal operations.
Jabba welcomes the crowd and announces to begin the race.
I'm going to have to start off with the little human kid. I choose the "Chosen One". Gimme Ani to win!
Glad you guys are playing this game again. Although I sucked Bantha poodoo last time, it was a blast to play.
Go, go, go Skywalker!!!!!
My credits are on Ani, too.
Darth Vader! uhh I mean anakin...
Well, after some heavy thought, I picked........................................
He is sure to win!!!!!!!!!!!!!
eeni meeni....i pick mawhnic.
It looks like Wan Sandage took the lead from Mawhonic in the Starlight Flats. The interesting technique he used almost took Mawhonic out of the race. Mawhonic has regained control of his pod but had fallen back to 3rd.
Mawhonic hails from the planet Hok, Although most of his species live on their homeworld of Kinyen. With his three eyes on movable stalks, you'd think that Mawhonic could stay out of the way of more aggressive pilots.
I pick Ody
The racers have run into some trouble out near Arch Canyon. It looks like there are some Tusken Raiders out there taking pot shots at the podracers from a remote section of the course. It appears that all of the racers have escaped the attack undamaged.
Sandpeople have not adapted to easy contact with outworld settlers. resentful of incursions in their territory, Sandpeople prey upon travelers. Renowned for their savagery, Tusken Raiders are lethally dangerous and not to be trifled with.
Well, lesse here...I only have a few minutes before the update...so I'll go with young Skywalker...
That little Anakin Skywalker won the race followed by Toy Dampner in 2nd and Mawhonic in 3rd.
The boy is good, no doubts there.
A very good start for many of you but it's not too late for new players to enter the game and for the others to quickly catch up.
Here are the standings...
