Haven't ever played any racing games, but dog sled racing looks like a fun theme. The game itself looks simple enough to teach, and doesn't look like it'd take that long to play.

Fun with family/friends. Feels a bit lacking with two players, more of a group game. Too much number crunching for certain players. While I like having it in my collection, it's not something I see breaking out frequently with the same people. Not a deep game, and so replayability is non-existent for serious gamers.

Keeping it because it serves a niche purpose: easy to introduce to new players, it's the only racing game in my collection, and mostly because my girlfriend forbids me from selling it.

Update: Well, we decided to let it go after all, since we always reach for something else.

His destructive programming is taking effect. He will be irresistibly drawn to large cities, where he will back up sewers, reverse street signs, and steal everyone's left shoe.

626 was designed to be a monster, but now he has nothing to destroy. You see, I never gave him a greater purpose. What must it be like to have nothing, not even memories to look back on in the middle of the night?

Sessions are a wee bit long, and the game is a wee bit luck-driven, but it's fun nonetheless. While there is a respectable degree of controllable randomness, a bad draw can completely ruin someone's day. While all the players will likely have poor draws at one point or another, the timing of said poor draws is quite relevant. Easy circuits are less luck-driven, but also less exciting.

So even if flawed, it's a really fun game! Definitely my favourite racing game. Like playing a game every so often.

Rated after 4 2 player games - so far I love it!
____________________

Lowered to 7, it's still a great design, but somehow the gameplay is not quite as attractive as I thought on the first plays.
One great advantage is has, is that it takes only 30-45 minuttes!

Revisited & raised back to 9 it is so much fun. I can't recall what threw me off earlier.

This is a fun racing game with some interesting card management and a press your luck feel around the corners and speed checks reminiscent of Formula D... but with more control thanks to those cards! I had worried that the cards would end up making things feel too out of control but they were easier to manage than I thought they might be. I understand this might be getting a new edition soon and if it looks good I could certainly see getting a copy.

A really cool card mechanic for controlling your sled(s). A great mix of strategy, game length and fun wrapped in a tight theme. Overall it's the best racing game I've played for just racing and it gets a 10 for all that.

Interesting game mechanics for determining sled movement by playing cards from your hand with your choices constrained by only being able to play cards with the same number. The damage mechanism is elegantly integrated by filling your hand with useless cards that cannot be discarded. I can't imagine playing this endlessly, but nevertheless it's a good, solid game. Initial rating of 7.

OK, so the numbers in the game are only 1-5, but boy do they tend to melt people's brains. Keeping options available is essential and even one early damage can wreck your game. The catch-up mechanic is almost too powerful.

A great racing game. The title and the box make it look like a light family game, but it's actually quite difficult and will appeal to gamers more than casual players. So glad this is in my collection.

15-02-2015. Rated after 2 plays. Snow Tails ia a fun racing game. Snow Tails is an interesting racing game for its mechanisms. In snow tails you play cards to determine your speed towards left/right, and the amount you break. You can only play cards with the same value, so if you really need to break 3, and steer to right 4, you'll have a problem. You steer to left or right based on the difference in speed.

I did like the game, but I felt it very thinky. More thinky than I might be comfortable with in a racing game which I feel should be quick and light.

I want to enjoy racing games, but I've found all of them to be boring or frustrating and sometimes both. Snow Tails is definitely not boring, in fact, I love the general idea of game play: select your dogs and turn based on how much power the left one has versus the right one, all compared to your brake strength. However, I have a big problem with the game: there's a runaway leader problem. When you're not in first place, your options drop due to where the people ahead of you are, sometimes having to waste an entire turn or, worse yet, earn a couple of dent cards and end up in a less-than-helpful spot. A lot of this could be inexperience, and I'm interested in playing again at some point, but I don't have high hopes for this one.
