Gates for Gasland Death Races

I’ve played a couple of games of the new Gaslands from Osprey publishing.  It’s been great fun so far  and I’ve been spending an awful lot of time converting Hot Wheels and Matchbox toys for this game of Mad Max style vehicular mayhem.   I’ve already made a couple of blog posts about Gaslands and more will undoubtedly follow.

I’m also a member of the Gaslands Facebook Group, which has grown to over two thousands members since being formed a few months ago.  I enjoy the group and there’s a lot of interesting and useful discussion in there.  It’s a great place to get inspiration for car conversions.

But it suffers from the usual Facebook Group problem in that the search function is really rather basic.  They do allow you to use some Boolean operators there but most people don’t know that.  As a result of this some of the same questions get asked repeatedly, people get bored with answering them and replies drop off.

Possibly the most common question that’s asked there is “what are people using for the gates that mark out the course in the Death Race scenarios that seem to be quite popular.  The first time someone asked there were a lot of answers, but that’s dropped right off.    So I thought I’d trawl the group and dig out all the pictures that people have posted showing their gates and here they all are.

The next  time someone asks the question on the Facebook Group I can link here and they’ll get an answer.  I’ve also picked up some pictured of gates elesewhere.

I’ve credited the pictures to the person who posted the pictures to Facebook or to the site where I found them, but if anyone wants their picture removed all they have to do is tell me (via email or in the comments below) and I will do so.   And anyone with a picture they’d like to add can contact me in the same way.

Hope you all find this post useful.
