edit: NEW New Album! http://imgur.com/a/lbmqS

(old) New Album: http://imgur.com/a/SxpAx

(old) Album link: http://imgur.com/a/8eTRk

Brainstorming what some Kart stuff could look like translated into Automobiles. It makes Autos a little more interactive, but hopefully not the fight-fest that Kart itself is.

I am looking for ideas on what to do with the Purple card. It always ends up very wordy. One fun idea was to turn your car backwards to indicate that you are currently invincible, and it ends on your next turn unless you play another purple cube. But again, very wordy.

Also looking for general thoughts or encouragement as I try to figure out how to make a less-ugly card template!

First off, these are pretty interesting, but I would make red gain at least one wear, and maybe drop the purchase power by one.

Super interesting though, I'd love to figure something out.

Oh thank you, costing was also something I'm very interested in advice / feedback on! I would like it to be mixable with normal cards, so it's important to be fair. I'll write that down.

Interesting. For the Super Star, I would go with something like:
When a car is blocking your way, push it aside if that player has no super star cube in its active pile.

Learning a lot from the ugly first drafts!

Of course there's also some big mistakes in this new look, but let's use this template for now. Will re-cost and beautify the others tomorrow. Thanks for looking! laugh

Just in case you didn't see my edit in the first post, Felkor, here's the full set in this style!

Next I am going to do a wording pass, then a playtest.

Sounds great. Let me know how your playtest goes. Once you feel pretty confident in it, I'll print a set out and play with my son, and I'll let you know what we think.

Wish I had some design skills like yours, haha... I'd make up some player aid sheets with Mario Kart drivers in the background instead of NASCAR/F1 cars.

What do you mean by "or put it into your bag" ?

And later "if you do so , remove up to 2 wear" ?
Remove 2 wear from that player (moved card) or myself (current player)?

A lot of the text on the cards is quite ambiguous about who is being referred to. Definitely needs some clean-up. Cool idea though!

I think this will help make card text less wordy, and hopefully clearer!

Further slight improvements!

Wording suggestions welcome! I think I fixed some of the worst phrasing.

few things:
1. Love the idea! Can't wait to hear how these turn out; I might have to print them out myself when they're finalized!

2. Bananas-as a point of clarification, since you add one to your space, if you don't happen to make any further forward progress during this turn, YOU will be the one to collect that wear on your next turn?

3. Bananas- also to clarify, this is SPACE, not SEGMENT? I'm assuming so.

4. Triple Shell- By "This turn", are you referring to the current player's turn only? Or the whole round of turns? If it is the whole round, I'm trying to think of a good way to indicate this on the board to remind players that a player is using the triple shell currently- maybe actually arranging 3 wear cubes around your car? Otherwise I can see a lot of players forgetting that it is active.

If it's the current player's turn only, it's no big deal.

5. I'd like to say again, that I really like these ideas, and can see them thematically quite clearly. Keep up the good work!

Does Super Star prevent you from gaining normal wear at the end of the turn?

Can Super Star remove cubes from anywhere (discard, active, used)?
