Hell for Leather
The Ogri Board Game
This is a light motorcycle racing board game based on the characters of Paul Sample's 'Ogri' comics.
It is basically a roll and move game, with a number of cards that can be played at various times to
enhance one's own progress or inhibit that of the another player. The game consists of three
individual races and a total of six laps around the course, played with different dice to represent the
speed / intensity of each race. At the end of each race, players acquire sponsors based on their
performance, and have the opportunity to spend money to purchase upgrades to their bikes for future
heats. The overall winner is the first player to cross the finish line in the third race. The game is very
aesthetically appealing, with board, card, and box art by Paul Sample and pewter miniatures for
player pawns. 2 - 6 pl.
From the back of the box: "Hell for Leather" board game is a fast, freaky race around the world
famous Isle of Man T.T. course, featuring a host of the best loved characters from Paul Sample's cult
comic strip Ogri, which has appeared in Bike Magazine since 1972. A game for 2-6 players, Hell for
Leather is all about high speeds, hard cash, 'Derring Do', and dirty tricks. Relying on guile, cunning,
and hopefully a little luck, set your sights firmly on the chequered flag... and go for it! Pressure
builds as you progress through the races with sponsorship funding, heaps of trouble, and laughs
aplenty. When fair play and skilful riding are not enough, deft use of your nasty 'nerg nail', 'orrible oil
slick' and other 'cheats' picked up along the way may assist you in the 'no holds barred' charge for
