Hey, Mommy, it'd be good to see you play. Don't worry about being good or not - there will be some really good players there who win most races, but folk of all levels, too. I am *rubbish* but, after plenty of practice, I can get a race victory every now and again and I then feel like a BOSS KARTER.

Yeah, while good players can dominate, even we fall back on occasion thanks to the chaos of karting. Don't go in expecting to do good, just enjoy the moment to moment interactions and relish in those personal victories you do get.

Those (very rare!) occasions when I finish ahead of one or two of the more skilled players in a race... man, they feel so good!

Pedz, dude, you gotta relish the occasional good run and just revel in the banter :-).

You do find that wee rivalries crop up over the weeks and this can include, say, two or three folk who usually finish towards the lower reaches of the table fighting it out amongst each other to improve. It makes for some fun competition!

Just think... this time next week we'll be preparing for the return of the tournament! Mario Kart Monday will be back, guys!

Friendly reminder that the Silver Arrow, Flame Rider, and Standard Bike, all have the same stats as the Wild Wiggler.

Thought I'd have a spin on this last night. 3 starred 4 courses off the bat and won every race easy on 100cc.
Tried 150cc... :dread:

red shell BOOM blue shell (why does it hit me on the way through if I'm in midfield??) BOOM Bullet BOOM :cry:

Balance. Was the same in Mario Kart 64.

The only safe place in these games is at the back of the field, that's why I spend most of my time there! :slol:

Nope. It's always been scheduled for next week. Nothing stopping us from hopping on tonight, though. Just probably won't get high numbers.

I'm pretty sure the room will only open at 9. I'll have a check in a bit, but I'll be within it whenever it does.
