The Sixth Leg of the Race

Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the sixth leg of the Amazing Mutant Race 3. Last week we saw our eight teams race to Disneyland where they had to ride the Star Tours attraction until they found the location of the clue that would lead them to the Detour. From the top of Space Mountain, the teams had to go and either complete ten rides on It’s A Small World After All without losing too much of their intelligence, or entertain the park patrons as beloved Disney characters. Once those tasks were done, the teams raced to the Pit Stop at the Disneyland Resort Hotel. Beating out the other teams by a healthy lead were Vegeta and Wolverine, the winners of this leg of the race.

As the winners, they get to choose one other team to Yield. A Yield forces that team to delay their start time by one hour. Vegeta and Wolverine must select the picture of the person they wish to Yield and place it on the board.

The last team to arrive was Warbird and Cyclops. Unfortunately their passion for the park seemed to distract them from speedily finishing their tasks. As always, the last team to arrive is eliminated.

This leg of the race starts at the Disneyland Resort Hotel in Anaheim, California. From here, the teams must travel by the means of their choice to the nearby Marvel Studios in Beverly Hills, California. There the Mighty Thor will transport the racers as they arrive to the Rainbow Bridge in Asgard.


Do you know your limit? The teams must then speed across the Bridge to Valhqll, the Hall of Odin where the voluminous Valstagg will be waiting for the Roadblock for this leg of the Race. A Roadblock is a challenge only one member of a team may perform.

Large kegs of the finest Asgardian mead will be tapped for this challenge. The selected racer must match Valstagg drink for drink for one hour without losing consciousness. The gargantuan god’s capacity is such that he can compete with multiple teams at the same time.

If a player does pass out before the hour, then his or her teammate must attempt the challenge. Once the time is up, the teams will then receive their Detour. A Detour is a choice between two tasks, each with its own pros and cons. Teams must successfully complete one of the tasks described on the clue. In this Detour, the teams must choose between Cards or Clubs.

In Cards, the teams must defeat Loki in game of Texas Hold ‘Em. Each side will be given $500 worth of chips to gamble with. Just remember, Loki is the God of Mischief and he’s known for not playing fair.

In Clubs, the teams must travel to the border of Jotunheim, the land of the giants. Groups of four Storm Giants will be waiting, armed for combat. Using Asgardian weapons, maces, hammers, swords, etc., the teams must defeat all of the giants.

Once the Detour is successfully completed, the teams must then make their way to the Pit Stop for this leg of the race which is back where they started at the Rainbow Bridge.

Drinking contest Huh!
Playing Texas Hold-em with Loki Huh!

I'd say your playing with a stacked deck.

But whatever you can throw at us we can handle.

What's that Cal, you've never had beer before. Oh crap!
