The Death Race comprised three gates - the first at top left, the second at centre right, and the third (finish line) at top right. Starting grid is at bottom/centre right of the picture. The gates have to be crossed in order, with each car's weapons activating only after it passes Gate 1.
This was a super-fun game. Death Race works better with lots of space on the grid, and as any player knows, the play slows down significantly through collisions etc. when cars are being operated in close proximity. Once the field spreads out a bit things start to rattle along more quickly.
I'm still quite excited about Gaslands and many of the lads share that enthusiasm. Half of the fun is converting and painting the cars, of course, and I need to get back to the worktable on that score!
