Here is some more info http://www.dicetowernews.com/downforce-hits-the-danger-circu...

One track will contain 'dangerous' spaces on which you can only pass other cars.

When do we get to see some more teasers of the new maps? IIRC there was a blurry Twitter photo at some point but after playing Downforce three nights in a row over the holidays I'm really looking forward to more!

Sold! I like that colour scheme.

How about a full map size pic, that's still a teaser right?!

Played several goes with family over the holidays - BIG interest from super fan-IndyCar enthusiasts! Looking forward to the new maps.

I really like the colors, too. Seems to be lit by a sunset (at least it does to me based on that image).

Yes! We were very excited when Tavis (who does our amazing cover art) was willing to take on the board art as well. For the other track, we were going for a nighttime, neon vibe. Shhhh. Here's a snippet of that one.

All this racing talk has gotten me so fired up I made my own homebrew track. I started it on New Year's Eve so that I'd be occupied enough to make it to midnight.

Here are a few images;







Clearly I did not attempt to replicate the artwork that helps make Downforce so enjoyable, but the track does play well. The one-wide sections keep things bunched up and make it extra important to get out in front of the pack early.

$19.95 for a new double-sided board and six more powers.

Will everything still be able to fit in the one base box?

Any chance it will include another score pad for people who ran out? If it raises the price too much it probably isn't worth it.

(I'll try to get everyone to switch to the app, but it's unlikely.)

If you take out the cardboard bolster, yes. That's how we're expecting folks to handle it.

No.

Product-wise, it's the board and pack of cards, plus a rules sheet, wrapped in heavy cardstock and shrink-wrapped. Similar to the packaging of Castles of Mad King Ludwig: Secrets.

we're planning to try these tracks as soon as possible - before the official release (which we'll still get when it comes out).

are there any special rules we need to know, to try them with the existing powers? i think the danger circuit you cannot end your movement on a rock-littered space, but can move through it, and on the crossover you must continue in the same direction and cannot turn at the crossover point. is anything else different from the original rules framework?

For,the dangerous spaces, you can only move a car unto them if it’s necessary to get by, i.e., not just to waste movement,

Tried crosstown today, pretty cool. Getting stuck behind someone in the single wide side of the split lanes was much more detrimental than I'd expected.

[update] have tried each new track twice now. definitely like crosstown speedway better. can't wait to try with new powers.

I trimmed my insert down by 16mm all around, and it looks to be just enough room for a second board now. Fingers crossed!! Is it, is it out yet?!?!??
