Is the Lasso really as overpowered as it seems?
All the Mummies really need to do each turn against anyone is use Lasso and it will throw off the other teams turn every time... Is there no range or other rule in place to prevent this ?

You have to remember that this skill does not help them. Of course they sabotage one of teams, but they don't help themselves. Skill of goblins or dwarves helps goblins or dwarves. This is crucial

We thought so too but in our second game's final race the mummies were always comfortably in the lead. Using the lasso only "helped" their opponents get closer to the finish. Of course it may have messed them up a little but it WAS progress.

None of the other racers have a double edged sword like that.

Far and away, theirs is my favorite ability. We regularly would pull another cart into an obstacle (the Troll being my favorite). However, as Ignacy says, the ability of the Goblins to turn prior to going or the ramming of the Dwarves is very beneficial.

I had a surly player in my game group the other night because The Mummy player thought it was amusing to mess with him. I kind of chalked it up to who I was playing with...

This clarification about the benefit factor makes perfect sense though. Thanks!
