Rallyman GT unboxing and first look 19 February 2020

My copy of Rallyman GT has arrived; I backed the Kickstarter in 2018, it was originally expected last November, and it finally made it to me on 30 January.

I got quite enthusiastic, so I can run games of up to twelve players in any of the game modes. (Top: GT4 and GT5 boxes, and dice packs. Bottom: World Tour, Championship, Team Challenge expansions and core box.)

Main box first. Kickstarter exclusive rule sheet in English and French…

Main rulebook, ditto…

And STUFF! A bag for the damage tokens, the standard dice pack, the car minis, the dashboard cards, and some ziplock bags.

Dashboards: standard, rain and soft tyres, as well as soft tyres in BOP mode (more about that later). And some player aids, and a card to remind you which colour you're playing.

First KS-exclusive punchboard: the bridge, the tiles it can go on top of, the wear markers for soft tyres, and tokens for spilled oil.

Back of that, and front of the other one. Two Y-junction tiles, one placeholder, and tokens for Sisu, débris, and deliberate obstruction.

Back of the second KS board.

Main boards 1-6. Good use of a single cutting die; each board provides 16 focus tokens, 6 damage tokens, and 4 track tiles. (Many of the later boards leave the damage tokens blank, which offers possibilities for modding.)

Main boards 7-9, including the gear tokens (you leave them on your car to show how fast you were going, because other players have to be going faster to overtake you on their turns).

The famous bridge. (With convenient bars at the ends so that you can leave a car on the slope.)

Team Challenge content. This is a box with a second set of cars and dashboards, a slightly variant set of gear tokens, and some tiles with extra-wide road sections.

Championship expansion. This is a sleeved rather than boxed expansion, which adds extra track tiles.

And similarly World Tour.

The GT-5 box. This is a different class of car, lower-powered but with the possibility of rapid acceleration. Standard, rain and soft tyre dashboards, and Balance of Power mode for these and the standard GT-6 cars. This is basically a restricted mode to let all of GT-4, GT-5 and GT-6 compete on a relatively level field.

And GT-4, the slowest cars.

All the dice.

Everything more or less fits into the box, though there's quite a bit of lid lift. I'm going to have to do something clever about this.
