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.

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

Only played twice, but I enjoyed both times. Seems a little difficult to get players.

I love almost all games, play Boardgames with my wife, have three kids, generally enjoy cats and understand and like those bumper stickers with the little fishies sprouting legs.

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.

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 yeah, it's a bit flawed, but fun too! Definitely my favourite racing game.

Nice game with few rules. But it's so hard to drive well the sled and someone may not like the calculations needed.
