This new version of the old classic Formula Dé is absolutely great! The components make playing the game so much simpler, quicker, and more enjoyable - and that's saying something as the old version was quite good as well.

Formula D is the motor sport game to own. If you even enjoy Formula 1 a little bit, you'll likely love this game. Formula D feels like driving, it simulates Formula 1 racing beautifully!

It is at its core a push-your-luck dice game, but it requires tactics and clever play. I highly recommend it.

Here's a list of old Formula Dé tracks that I still desire:

#19 Suzuka
#23 Monterey (Laguna Seca)
#17 Buenos-Aires
# 7 Magny-Cours
#10 Interlagos

They came in the following map sets:
19-20 Suzuka & Melbourne
17-18 Buenos-Aires & Barcelona
7- 8 Magny-Cours & Monza
9-10 Estoril & Interlagos
23-26 USA Track Pack #1

Not much has changed since the original Formula Dé, but the dashboards are fantastic! Finally you can't rid of those paper-statcards that you have to photocopy all the time. The city racing is a fun addition but it's not much more than normal Formula Dé but with some minor rule-additions that give it some flavor. I still perfer just plain Formula-racing though.

Cool reinvention, beautiful new graphics, no more pen and paper notes and wooden pawn but a cool gear stick and cards. The new street racing is different enough to think you get 2 games in one.

Formula De was one of my original 10's when it came out. As a car racing game it just hit all the right spots albeit the length of running 3 laps being too long. Still, the "D" version has managed to improve on the original by adding preset cars and personalities as well as spice things up with some street racing. More cars, player stat boards, and new track keep this game going like the energizer bunny.

Monaco Plays - 1

This is a really fantastic track and slightly modified from the original Monaco of Formula De.

The track is laid out in such a way that the field tends to stay relatively clustered. Various corners allow for multiple driving lines and gear strategies and the Pits offer a viable 'omit' strategy if your car is travelling well to make the next corner.

My favorite player was Li Tsu Sin. And the car that I was was my favorite car. It was blue. The game played great. And I've won every time I played it. I won because every time me and my Dad were neck in neck. My Dad was the yellow car with purple stripes. I went really fast. I could not go in to 6th gear until I played a huge gane of Formula D. The track was a vey long track. In fact the other side was night instead of day. I mean the other side of the board. Not just a regular board, a game board. Its one of my favorite games!

A great game for causal and hardcore gamers alike.
Some dice/luck but with an eye on resource management (tyres, breaks, etc...).

Best board game I have ever played.

Despite being a roll and move/push your luck game, Formula D pulls it off very well making a realistic and fun racing game. It is nice that even if you do not have enough players to make corners and straits crowded you can play teams of two or three cars per player.

This is one of the best games I have found! It can be a high spirited race, the dymamics are simple enough (and luck is prevelant enough) for family members down to 6 years old. The rally rules allow deeper play, and a variety of tracks allows replaybility.

The theme is very well represented with crashes, passes, and blown engines all contributing to the play. There are add-0n cars you can use to paint and customize, and the advanced rules of building cars gives a depth that is rare in racing theme games.

I like the addition of the "Street Race" rules and premade theme cars.

The down side is that some players can slow the game dramatically if they can't plan their move until they have the dice. Also, bad play (or bad luck) is rewarded with early elimination. Older track expansions are difficult to find and expensive.

Simple mechanics, but I really like this game. A real racing feel with push your luck dice rolling. Best when you can play multiple tracks with a league so when you are completely left out of a race it tempers the disappointment knowing you get to come back next week. Simple, fun and appeals to non-gamers. Adding pegboards to keep track of stats to replace paper and pencil in this relaunch is genius. Also adds street racing for the types who like that sort of thing.

My rating is with the "right" people. And with League Play involved.
For just a sibgle race, I'd rate it a 9.

People who get this game, and have fun with it make this an absolute blast!
League options, pushing your luck, cheering/jeering fellow drivers, so many house rules and variants to customize play...
It's a real gem, and has now officially landed on my "never trade" list.

The new edition is also beautiful. I love the old artwork (outside of the craziness of some of the later maps...goofy graphics/characters, etc.) but these new maps are stunning, as well, imho.
Wonderful color, great graphics...FUN, FUN, FUN!

same game as Formula De with nicer components (no more pen and paper) and a new roadrace set of rules for variety.

12 1971 Le Mans cars (1/220) from Micro Racing Cars (http://www.microracingcars.com/en/)

D Tracks:
Monaco - classic original track, always a good choice.
Road Race - ok, not excited about roadrace rules.
Hockenheim
Valencia
Austin
Nevada Ride

De Tracks:
Spa-Francorchamps - favorite track - the chicane!
Zandvoort 2
Monterrey - tough track - lots of critical 4th gear rolls.

This a great push your luck racing, with extremely attractive components. Great fun in large groups, although a little bit time consuming. My group is currently halfway through a league, and we get a lot of laughs with this one. Some people may be put off by a few of the more chaotic rules.

WOW! I love this game! It has a unique playing style that you shift gears up or down and your die size increases or decrease with your gear changes. It really takes some strategy and thinking, but once you get the hang of it, it can be GREAT fun! I love using nitro on the last lap and having my car explode... *sarcasm*...

In a world without Formula D, fun 10-player board games would not exist. We must be thankful we do not live in that world. The experience is about as close to the real thing as you could imagine a dice-based board game being (yeah - not very close - but close enough).

This is by far one of the best games we have for a lot of people. Has definitely taken a long time to get all the rules/optional rules played right. We've actually played a lot more than our documented plays, probably ~10 games, and we still aren't playing everything entirely correctly. However, it does very well in keeping everyone involved and competitive.

I have about as much interest in Auto Racing as I have in descending into wreck and ruin, which is to say lack of interest that transcends into proactive avoidance. That being said, I am in absolute rapture with this game. I ignore the Formula 1 theme and view it as a risk Management game. In that, it's a huge success. Not only is it challenging and fast-paced, it's actually a lot of fun.
