I am afraid I looked back to the start of this year and I couldnt find a game which lived up to the criteria you gave, so I went for the next best thing.

I have played Snow Tails before, 7 years ago in fact, but not played it since. However, it came out at a club night a few weeks ago and I realised I had forgotten just what an amazing race game it is. Tight, requiring some real forward planning (and therefore subject to a competitor blocking you off) and with a real feel for the theme. We had an absolute blast playing it and needless to say it has come out a couple of times since then. I am now about to pull the trigger on a copy, whihc will be the first game I have bought in a while.

August 25th - cool choice

First play of this one. Rules seemed to be straightforward enough on initial reading but then we ran into a few sticking points. Played it as is for now but will need to do the customary read rules in peace, check forums etc. to clarify a couple of things. Is that really the rule that all players cross the finish line before the winner is decided??? Seemed weird for me to continue playing rounds by myself after the husband had already crossed the finish line...and then I ended up winning because I was farther past than he was

Seemed alright, but not super exciting...probably one of those games...as most racing games...that's better with more players. We only played the beginner hairpin track so will definitely try out different layouts with solid rules before making any final judgment. Added to my evaluation list for possibly moving on.

Looking for Snow Tails

Version: any English or German version. Afaik this covers all released versions, so really, any of those would be great.
Price: Good condition: 25€; very good or better: 30€.

If you're in the US and willing to carry it over the pond for me, I'd also offer 5€ and a beer for that. (I'd have it shipped to you in time before Essen)

I'll be in Essen all four days.


Found via Mule List. Thanks Stephen!

Took me long enough to track down the Asmodee copy I wanted, the graphic design and aesthetic I love. I don't have many race games and this one's the purest of the lot.

Excellent Condition - only played 2-3 times (not my kind of game) So yeah... maybe like new.

Unless otherwise mentioned, all of my games are gamer copies of games. That means they're put on a shelf and kept safe but they are played. So, there may be whitening of corners on boxes and rulebooks that have been thumbed through and underlined. The components themselves are all in very good condition but if you are a collector, these games are probably not be for you. If you want pictures of a particular game, ask. I do not know if inserts are there or not. If you care about inserts, ask!

Looking at this one on the GeekMarket (since it's easily 3-4x as expensive over here).
Anyone from the US willing to have it shipped to them and carry it over the pond for me?
Thanks, Tobl

(Edit: will be in Essen all four days)

Edit 2: Just noticed above that compensation is allowed in here. I want to keep the friendly gamers-helping-gamers atmosphere, but 5€ and a beer (or other beverage) are of course part of the deal. ^^

3rd (and hopefully final) edit: Stephen has offered to bring this one over. Thanks!

Comments:
This is a racing game, which I'm not big on. The dog sled theme is cool, though. I bought it and didn't get to it right away. The interest has long since waned.

If we're "steering" away from autoracing, then I have to name Snow Tails as a favorite. I love the speed and steering mechanic--the right or left team much have a higher speed to turn in that direction. I would love to see a chariot racing game with the same mechanism (plus ramming and whips).

mbmbmbmbmb
The second race game I tried, Snow Tails, is one I have wanted to play for years given the neat correlation of theme and mechanics. I played it in the tournament at noon on Saturday. You control your sled with a pair of sled dogs and a brake. If the dogs pull evenly, you can get a speed bonus. If you need to turn then one dog can pull your sled harder than the other, allowing you to maneuver around obstacles on the track. This only works if you can coax the dogs into doing what you want or manipulate the strength of your brakes via numbered cards. Damage and speeding makes you lose card slots to "dents", even to the point of eliminating you from the game.

Luckily none of the four of us playing in the Snow Tails tournament were knocked out of contention. I didn't treat my dogs right however and came limping in third place in the first game. The winner and the one experienced player moved on after the first race, leaving the other new player and I to play again just for fun. We added trees and narrower paths to the mix, and my dogs were still mad at me from the first race, so I came in 2nd out of two in that one. Still enjoyed myself though. If I had extra money burning a hole in my pocket and friends who actually liked this type of game more I would have bought it.
