As mentioned in an earlier post, I never had much incentive in playing
this Knizia game as the commentary I had heard was, for the most part,
negative. However, I tossed it in on an order using a gift certificate
and have been enjoying it ever since. Yes, it is light with not much
control, but played in the right spirit, it can be a hoot. And, similar
to Pool Position, Gail enjoys it in spite of its mild nastiness.

The Speed-Racers were Joe, Paul, Tom, Ann, Keith and myself. I
continued my absolutely abysmal performance in this game, as I promptly
finished completely out of the scoring in the first heat as both of my
cars were eliminated in a fiery crash on the second hand of cards! Tom,
however, scored BIG, earning 11 points and assuming the front-runner
position. Sadly, this is NOT the position you want to be in, as it
becomes open season on you in the remaining races!

Sure enough, Tom was held to just one point in race 2. He was still
tied for first place with Joe at 12 points apiece entering the final
race, but was completely shut out of the scoring in that last heat. Joe
managed to earn four points, but Ann, who had only 7 points entering the
final race, managed a first place finish, earning 10 points. This was
enough to catapult her into the victory.

Round-by-round scores:

Ann: 3 + 4 + 10 = 17
Joe: 2 + 10 + 4 = 16
Greg: 0 + 5 + 8 = 13
Tom: 10 + 2 + 0 = 12
Keith: 6 + 0 + 4 = 10
Paul: 4 + 6 + 0 = 10
