Description Edit | History

From Ghenos Games website:

The centenary Giro will be a memorable stage: the track will go through important Italian cities such as Venice, Milan, Rome, Naples, Florence, Boulogne, Genova putting all cyclists (above all Lance Armstrong back at his first Giro) under pressure from the first week on the Dolomites.

The game is a spin off of Leader 1 but will focus on the most famous Italian bicycle race.

Box contents: 21“route” hexagons, 1 “general classification” hexagon, 15 riders (5 teams of 3), 16 “general classification” tokens, 1 peloton (to be placed on the card stand), 1 “peloton leader” token, 1 twelve-sided “peloton” die (with stickers of 3, 4 and 5 values to be attached), 1 twelve-sided “events” die, 36 “feed zone” tiles (12 yellow, 12 red, 12 green), 1 “energy table” block, 11 tokens (3 “feed zone”, 2 “bonus time”, 6 “mountain climb category”), 12 reminding tables, 15 special cards.

7 Leader 2 player aid revised 2010
Revised version of player aid posted in leader one by Aaron Cinzori (WonderCinz) The main difference is Peloton control disruption and Peloton can move up to 7 spaces if empty. Special abilities were left off to accommodate extra peloton rules. Two items were omitted in aid and one not mentioned. Not mentioned, when riders ride through other riders it cost them one energy to do so, also they must pay any penalties that that space has. For game play purposes we left out the 1 energy cost for being outside and ahead of the peloton as it was cumbersome to deal with and no one liked it here. Also left out was the extra 1 energy cost for canceling jumping from peloton, we felt penalty was to high as you still had to pay peloton movement costs.

27 Leader 2 rules
Yes, you read correctly: by now the set of rules me and my group are using is so different from the original ones that it would be almost misleading to use "Leader 1" in the title. And Leader 1 and Giro are actually one game, that's why you can find these rules here :) How have we ever gotten so far? We liked the game a lot from day 1, but were disappointed by some of its mechanics causing the races to resemble the real ones rather poorly, while offering very few strategic options. After lots of brainstorming and then testing, we finally arrived to this set of rules, which seems to play out nicely for all kinds of routes, while not being too complex. Enjoy! As a bonus, a separate section of comments, where I discuss the motivation and real-life examples behind the new rules. Also,...
