This game works with: Basilisk II,

Gearheads is a game of battling wind-up toys. To win, be the first person to get 21 toys across your opponent's side of the playfield.
Each toy has a different weight, speed, and style of movement. Most have special abilities too. Once you release a toy onto the board, it is out of your control altho it may be influenced by the release of other toys. Your opponent might even use it to score against you, so watch out!

One more thing: as in Mongolian beer wrestling, you have to win by 2 points.

This game is at its best played against a human opponent, the daft cartoon nature of the toys and utter pandaemonium that ensures during a game leads to fun, care free gameplay.
