Andrew’s racetrack

Apr 17 2009

My friend Andrew had this laying around in his apartment, and it sure brought back memories. When my cousins and I were kids, we used to create elaborate rules for these electric racecars. We had a money system where you could use winnings to buy options for your car, like super sticky tires (some kind of glue that we figured would help your car stay on the track even around sharp turns) and earthquake tires (which allow you to separate the track at a location of your choice once per race). Indeed, we were the type of kids who could never just play a straightforward game; everything needed to have a codified ruleset.
