I'm interested in picking this up, but I play mostly with just my girlfriend. It seems that you would need a good number of cars on the track for the game to be enjoyable. I have almost written it off for this reason. However, I'm wondering if it would be easy/fun for two players to each play two cars. Can anyone take a guess at this? I've never played a racing game before.

Thanks in advance.

We play this now with two cars each........and sometimes we use a 5th car that we alternate control over............makes the track much more crowded and let me tell you that the 5th car is one crazy bastard when it comes to risk taking.

The game is much better with more cars on the track..........when we have a third person we still run two cars each.

In a 2- or 3- and probaly 4-player game, you shouldn't play with one car each. If there are only 2 players in the game, I would even consider giving 3 cars to each person.

For 2 to 4 playes, we always use two players per car. As said previoiusly, the more cars on the track there more fun that ensues.

It is definitely more fun when one person has two cars, so that teamwork comes into play. I find it extremely enjoyable to have a constructor's championship going where each player controls a team of two cars, and the winner is the player with the highest number of total points from both cars. This is good, because you don't always have to finish 1st to do well.

Why stop at 2 each? In our league we always have as close to a full 10 car track as we can. If only 3 people show up they race 3 cars each. The extra traffic is pure fun.

I play the same way when running a game with only 2-3 players. The game isn't really that great unless you've got 6+ cars on the board. Just remember to police the other players and make sure their wear gets assigned to the right car.
