Diesel Demolition Derby


A tactical drafting card game for 2-6 players. An underground fighting league for dieselpunk mechas in a society in Crisis.


Diesel Demolition Derby summary

Diesel Demolition Derby is our latest game set in the world of Crisis, after Crisis itself and the dieselpunk-themed edition of Long Live The Queen.

Designed by Matthew Dunstan (Elysium / Relic Runners / Costa Rica / Empire Engine), it is a quick exercise in astute tactical thinking. Every choice is a tough one, as passing the chance to draft a great card is an opportunity for your opponents.

The theme evokes a gritty underground fighting league in a society in crisis. The illustrations by Anthony Cournoyer (Rattle, Battle, Grab the Loot / Hoyuk / Aether Captains / Raid & Trade / Crisis / Long Live The Queen) were made to match the growing world of Crisis and its mashup of diesel engines with leaking oil and a erstwhile glorious society in decline.
