Components

Great quality, track pieces fit well together, the occasional bumps (unintentional uneven junction of 2 tracks that kick the cars out of the track) are still present. The only problem I have is that you have to cut some of the guardrails (actually, there are some instructions) so they will fit and there is one or two of them that will still be short and the little bits from the cut rails could be used to fill in. Kinda lame especially considering the overall quality of pitchcar mini.


Gameplay

The extension greatly enhances pitchcar mini. The double path curves call for tactical decisions, may require some extra skill to go through a narrower pass and give extra possibilities to overtake other cars. The chicane is many times a game changer since it gives a sizable advantage to the car to reach it first on each lap, "blocking" the other cars. The jumps require skill and, frquently, are game defining points. Some players can get stuck with failed jumps wasting several precious turns. Some players can be successful with conservative jumps just to see an aggressive player jump over several cars and turn a race in his favor after a successful long play during a jump.


Impression

The extension complements the basic game very well requiring more skill and bringing more tactical options and laughter to the races. If you have Pitchcar Mini and is wondering about getting the extension, I would highly recommend doing so.

Is this a review of the new extension or the older one?

Is it in a nice box or is it in a plain box with a printed sheet on top?
