Garage Con Grinder

The Grinder is a progressive battle where the competitors try to destroy as many units as possible.

The Rules

  1. Each player will be randomly assigned a Light 'Mech, with pre-assigned Piloting and Gunnery values.
  2. The player's 'Mech will enter the playing field from an edge location assigned by their seating around the table.
  3. Players roll initiative. The winner of initiative then will roll one die and consult the Front/Rear column of the Battlemech Kick Table. The player to the direction indicated by the table (Right or Left) from the initiative winner goes first, and movement proceeds around the table in that direction.
  4. Play then proceeds per Total Warfare ™ rules.
  5. A 'Mech is determined to be destroyed for Grinder purposes when any of the following conditions are met:
    • The center torso internal structure or head internal structure is destroyed.
    • The 'Mech suffers three engine critical hits or two gyro critical hits.
    • The pilot is killed through a cockpit critical hit, or through 6 pilot hits.
    • The 'Mech is rendered battlefield ineffective through loss of one arm and one leg.
  6. When a player's 'Mech is destroyed, the opponent who cause the final damage gets credit for the kill. If the unit is destroyed due to a result not resulting from opponent action (such as damage from attempting to stand, or due to an ammo explosion from overheating) no kill is credited.
  7. The player whose 'Mech is destroyed then is randomly assigned a 'Mech from the next higher weight class, which enters on the following turn from their same starting edge location
  8. Players may not deliberately destroy their own 'Mech through ejection.
  9. Each kill earns a player 1 entry into a drawing for a prize. The more kills, the more entries!
