Description Edit | History

Bolide presents itself as a revolutionary car racing game since no cards or dice move the cars.

Each driver can take total control of his own car by applying a move mechanism based on a second pawn, able to reproduce the real accelerations, decelerations and inertial movements of the cars during the races.

To learn such a mechanism means to learn driving a racing car and to experience a very high simulation level: the drivers can work out the best routes along the squares of the track and push their car at the speed they want, racing opponents and making breathtaking over-takings or extreme braking.

They really play with their driving style. But they should make sure they preserve their engine and tires for the last part of the race...

Moving on to the advanced level, the top drivers, besides their driving skills, will have to demonstrate their strategic abilities by choosing the best tires, by deciding between pit stops tactics or long race ones and by identifying the optimum set-up to push the car ahead of all others.

To improve the level of simulation and play, a die is provided to rule superior performance requests, unforeseen events & risky situations: this adds a touch of the unexpected to the Bolide race.

The game comes with multilingual rules (Italian, English, German)

4 30 Second Timer mp3 for Bolide
Rather than use a silent sand timer or digital clock that only rings when time's up, I thought it would be fun to put together a 30 second mp3 in GarageBand to time players' turns with. Creates a touch more drama and atmosphere during the thinking process - plus it has a lovely racing car sound effect at the end..! :)

2 Hidden Planning Variant
This is a tested rule set variant for the basic game that I'm very happy with. It features simultaneous hidden planning and simplified collision rules. A speed handicap rule has also been included to help prevent runaway leaders and to make the race down the final stretch more of a chess match. With this rule set, getting blocked by the cars that move first happens frequently, so positioning your car so it gets to move first next round by moving it ahead and/or towards the inner lane is a big part of the gaming strategy.

Bolide Car Panel ================ This simple tool provides the current status of your car, simply using paper clips on the edge of tool. Simply print out the file (it caters for two cars) and trim the panels back. You need 6 paper clips (small size) for each of the following which determines the current status of the car: - top speed, - hard brakes left, - tyres, - lost 4th gear, - booster setup, - brakes setup, - and fuel.
