The Devil's Run: Route 666

The Devil's Run: Route 666

The Devil's Run: Route 666 is a 20mm-scale post-apocalyptic miniature vehicular combat board game (for 2-6 players) from Word Forge Games. Devil's Run Route 666 is a fast-moving and hard-hitting vehicular game set in a post-apocalyptic America and has many influences on it although clearly it draws heavily upon the highway carnage of classic movies such as Mad Max. The Devil's Run utilizes a special “rolling board” mechanic where tiles are placed to represent the next stretch of road that your gang will be riding on. Limited no! This system makes for fast play, quick thinking and lots of strategy which ensures all players feel like they are on the edge of their seat; fall too far behind and you are out of the race, get too far in front and you could open yourself to an airstrike or an unexpected obstacle in the road.

The game has story driven missions which are a mix of full throttle racing and maximum carnage vehicular battle, with an immersive ruleset to make you feel like you're a part of the post-apocolyptic action. Devil’s Run features vehicles of all types, ranging from nimble bikes to massive monster machines of the post-apocalypse. Currently there are four very different types of vehicles: Bikes, Trikes, Buggies and Cars. Each of these vehicle types play very differently. Each has their own unique set of handling rules, arcs of fire and possible weapon load-outs. Three, six and ten sided dice, statlines and modifications are used to represent every aspect of the game, from scenery effects, shooting, ramming and sideswiping, to using equipment like Nitros, Oil Slicks and Smoke Screens. Depending on where you are and what you’re driving, you may get bonuses or penalties to hit enemy vehicles. But be sure to keep an eye on the road, as obstacles can pop up at any moment. Suddenly hitting a wall while going 100mph down the road probably isn’t something conducive to maintaining a high-speed pursuit!

Word Forge Games has cleverly made two games out of one in the Devil’s Run. The first is just an easy-to-pick-up-and-play form where you simply use the pre-generated vehicles and gangs right out of the box. But, for those interested in a more-immersive experience, they have expanded rules for a narrative campaign. There’s something for everyone here. Devil's Run most definitely is THE post-apocalyptic game of vehicular carnage! Live fast and die hard on Route 666. Can you survive the Devil's Run?
