    Default The perfect opportunity

    Yestreday night I had just bothered Baldred into giving up on his important workstuff and come play with me, when I got the idea of a race under special circumstances.

    I'll name it Blind Blowout.

    The rules are simple: No GPS, No Gamertags.

    The objective is to get from point A (Start) to Point B (Finish) as fast as possible. The only thing you can use is the physical map and your sense of direction. (As good as it might be)

    Isolate you session and go go go!

    We did three races with various people and it is quite a laugh, listening to the chat, when some people are heading the excact opposite direction of where you're supposed to be. I wont mention any names here.

    Was great fun guys. Always ready to do it again

    Its the paper map that was shipped with the first however many copies of the game, so if you have bought it recently you probably wont have one..

    Or the one you get in the Official Guide book.

    That was a laugh last night, at least I came third in one of them.

    Look forward to the next ones.

    Hats off to Mellors for beating me twice ....

    I was expecting Baldred to win as he appears to know the island like the back of his hand!

    That was alot of fun last night, especially the rade to the North east Liaght house where me and Baldred where coming in from different ways (Iwas coming from the North and he was coming from the south) and I just beat him by about 30secs or something to get my first win.

    Have to do it again, it was really enjoyable.
