C4: Do The Kessel Run?

Posted By Mike on May 18, 2007

The Kessel Run will be making its way to Celebration IV. No wait. That doesn't make sense. C4 will be making the Kessel Run in less than...No wait...Starwars.com, please clear this up:

"Calling all would-be smugglers and starship pilots: compete in the Kessel Run, a galactic race of wits, speed, and luck, at Star Wars Celebration IV. Scheduled for Monday, May 28, the Kessel Run follows the model of the famed San Diego Rocket Race, in which teams of two to four compete solving puzzles as they "race" around the Celebration IV site. The Kessel Run will put your Star Wars skills to the test. Can you beat the Millennium Falcon's record?"

UPDATE: One of the organizers of the race, James F., sends us this info...

So you want to race the Kessel Run?

Smugglers and spacers from all parts of the galaxy gather occasionally to test their wits and piloting skills by trying to complete the Kessel Run in the shortest amount of time and/or distance. Here are some tips for those intrepid enough to try their luck at the Kessel Run at Celebration IV:

- Bring a pen or pencil. Unless you have a droid that can do all your memory recording and computations, you'll probably need to write things down as you solve puzzles. Make sure you have at least one functioning writing implement.

- Don't be afraid to ask for help. Even a seasoned smuggler knows when the odds are against him and calls in a few favors. Racers can use their comlinks (cell phones) to call up smuggling buddies back in their home systems to help them find information. Or feel free to talk to the myriad of scum and villainy of fans around the convention center. Chances are, you'll find the answer if you ask around, or look something up.

- Dress comfortably. Han Solo and Chewbacca have some smarts in their fashion sense. Might be handy to bring a pouch to carry around stuff. Definitely would be smart to wear comfortable clothes and shoes for wandering around spaceports. Feel free to wear costumes, so long as they won't slow you down. Quick-draw holsters optional.

- Watch out for double-crossers. Sure, you can talk to other teams, but remember, they're in it to win - so know who you can trust, and who you can't. Remember that if you follow someone, they're still ahead of you - and they're deciding where to go, not you.

- Keep the local systems in line. Not only does your team need to visit each of the checkpoints of the galaxy, you need to visit them in order! If you stumble across a smuggling base in your travels - be sure it's the one that you're supposed to go to! The Hutts want smugglers who are smart enough to go where they're led, and will disqualify teams that visit systems out of order.

Good luck to all the Kessel Run racers - you're gonna need it.
