As gremlins climb on rocks and wade in puddles to catch a glimpse of the big race, their favorite racers gear up at the starting line. Time to find out who’s the fastest, and more importantly, who’s the fan favorite!
Bayou Bash is a chaotic racing game for 2-4 players filled with rambunctious racers who will do anything to win over the most fans before crossing the finish line. Each player takes control of a racer with unique abilities, and must battle for victory across the customizable track while gaining fans along the way. In Bayou Bash, it’s not about who crosses the finish line first, but who pulls off the craziest tricks during the race!
- Players will have the option to choose from 1 of 4 different racers:
The Rooster is a fast-moving racer who isn’t afraid of falling off the track every once in a while.
The Rabbit can hop out of trouble and cause havoc to those who are brave enough to stay around them.
The Pig can Ram other racers better than the competition and won’t Stagger when she enters a Water space.
The Waldgeist has the most control when Staggering, and can pull other racers back if they get too far ahead.
Each racer has their own abilities that may be used once per turn, as long as they have the Gold Coins to spare! These abilities give each racer a playstyle unique to their own.
Whether you embrace the chaos of speed over stability, believe that slow and steady wins the race, or just want to cause a stir in the Bayou, there’s a racer and playstyle for you!
Fall off the track? Use your Skull Marker to keep track of where you fell off and come back next turn!
- You can’t have a race without a track!
Included in the back of the rulebook are a ton of track examples, but part of the fun in Bayou Bash is getting creative with putting these track pieces together. Make a crazy difficult turn that will send racers flying off the track. Use only the muddy sides of the track pieces to create a race track that will send everything into chaos! Or sprinkle a challenging track piece here and there to create a few unexpected turns throughout. The choice is yours!
Bayou Bash includes 14 double-sided track pieces so that you can build a track as twisty and turny as your heart desires. Whether you’re looking for a long-haul circuit or a destruction derby full of Rocks and Water, the choices are only as limited as your imagination and table space!
It’s all about the fans!
Remember, in Bayou Bash, the object of the game is to gain the most fans, not necessarily be the first to cross the finish line (though that helps, too)! Racers can gain fans by Ramming other racers, performing their abilities, being ahead of others at the start of the Fan Phase, getting a lucky Stagger roll, and more.
But even your fans aren’t safe from the havoc of the race! Other racers can Ram into them, toss Barrels at them, and sometimes steal them! While some spaces on the track are safer than others, you’ll have to do everything you can to ensure that you’re always gaining more than the competition, or at the very least, doing everything you can to remove the opposition’s fans from the game!
