Top fun, frustrating when you fluff, exhilarating when you slice past the opposition with one killer shot! Get two copies for mega tracks.

The ultimate action game! Pity it needs a lot of space to play or it would come out even more often.

Requires somewhat of a large table (my gaming buddies and I aren't flexible enough to play it on the floor anymore.) Very fun. Looks simple at first, but once you start playing it's very addictive.

Definitely a fun game. Though I think the rules should be modified. There's nothing better than knocking someone else's token off the board...

Downside is it takes lots of room and is expensive (and now OOP). Upside is it's awesome! Load of fun, plays fast, very little downtime.

Great for having fun while

A delightful finger-flicking/dexterity game that's loads of fun; especially with larger group. (Reminded me of shooting wax-filled bottlecaps as a youth. )

Whole lot of finesse in this one. I can not count how many times I have been overeager to try and slip into the lead only to flick way too hard and jump off the track. As an added bonus, the family really likes it as well, and the rules can be explained in 30 seconds. I did not glue in the rails so it would still fit in the box, but I can see how glueing would be beneficial.

Wow. Such a simple game, yet so much fun! Would looove to try with the expansion pack.

Update: I did get the chance to try with expansion pack... and quickly raised my rating to 10! This is a game that I will cherish until I die (hopefully a while from now)

I got Pitch Car and the expansion a few weeks ago and we have set it up several times. It is always a lot of fun and inspires lots of laughter and trash talking. If you enjoy dexterity games and are looking for one that is something different than stacking and balancing go for Pitch Car. We played with 8 players and it was a blast

(Carabande version) The ultimate flicking game! Incredible fun for anyone who enjoys physical dexterity games. A word to the wise: Short finesse shots are far more valuable than flailing long distance shots. Also, everyone will eventually make one or two really bad mistakes in a race - just take it slow and steady and you'll invariably cross the finish line first.

One of my most favorite games ever. Great dexterity game with a lot of direct competition. Always play with the junker rules that let you knock other cars off the track; they make the game shine.

There's not much to say, really. It's flicking little discs around a track. I've been aching to play this going on 2 and a half years now and it completely lived up to my crazily high expectations.

Perfect game for our whole family. On the first play, our three year old skunked everybody else fair and square, and we knew it was a keeper. Have also used it as a warm up game with adults and there isn't anything better.

Great fun with 4 . Unfortunately, one of my straight aways is a bit warped so it's a little annoying. Other than that I love this game. It has the right mix of action, tension, and excitement. Highly recommend!

Update: I usually play this game with 7-12 year olds and they absolutely adore this game. Recommend to anyone looking for a good game for kids in this age range.

So much fun! A must have game that draws people in!

Silly thoughthammer shipped this in such a way that the components ripped the box to bits. Ok, I take that back. Silly production values mean this game probably very rarely ships without busting out of the box. Shame really.

After playing it a few times by myself to shape my technique, I thought that there's no way that this is a '10'. However, after playing 4 games with my son, I have to give it a 10. After playing with more people at my regular gaming group, I'd love to give it an 11!

Oh god, I love this game. Don't listen to people who whine about leveling the track. If you let this stop you from playing it you're a fool. I play this on a slatted table and with a few playing card shims it's perfectly flat.

I always have a blast playing this game.

Base rating: 6
With expansion 1: 7.5
With expansion 2: 8
With long straights: 8.5
With stunt race: 10
With two stunt races: 11, hehe, j/k
The cross is mostly just a convenience.

What can I say? It's expensive, but with all the expansions it's an absolute 10. Each one just makes for than many more opportunities for even greater and more terrible shots.

There's a couple things we've found greatly improve the game:

1) use playing cards to make sure the track intersections in the direction of travel is slightly higher or equal to the next section. The game really shines once you learn to build a reliable track.

2) play from 1st position to last rather than turn order. It's more intuitive and doesn't give a huge advantage to those ahead.

Uno de los juegos de habilidad favorito de mis retoños y por ende, uno de los mas jugados. Con una grado de nostalgia alto ya que uno jugó mucho a las chapas en tiempos pretéritos de su tierna infancia.

Not worth recording plays. This has been played hundreds of times.. It is permanently set up at work under the guise of 'team building' and while it's not played as often as it once was, we still play weekly.

The fact that my kids are getting old enough to play this (with a few extra flicks for the younger ones) only ups the replay value for me. Yeah, it was a major investment and the price is SIGNIFICANT, but I sold a bunch of comics to pay for it and the expansions and haven't regretted the decision for a second. People LOVE seeing this laid out and are intrigued that something like this can be a game. I always get asked what it is, where I got it, what it's made out of and all the other questions that only help validate my taste in games.

It can get stale for some people, but I'll just go find other people to replace those people. I've played it on the floor, the dining room table and across multiple tables. The options are endless and I can even get my 90+-year-old Grandma to play it. This has been one of my best heavy investments and has managed to be the only "racing" game I can seem to win fans with. A rare 10, but a well deserved one at that.

Pitch Car was the first game I got myself, and is still one of my favourites.. or it IS my favourite! I LOVE to use my fingers carefuly and precisely in this cool game. The expansions that I have also make this game even better!

Highly recommended game!

This is always a hit. Unfortunately my current table setup does not allow for us to bring this out that often. Another that I have never heard a single complaint on. Has a hefty price tag to both the game and the expansions, but is well worth it in my eyes.

Along with two copies of the Audi edition, I have a copy of the original Carabande. Between those and the expansion track I've crafted a few additional hazard track pieces. Super party/dexterity game.
