I don't know if there is a "copyright" on this type of message thread, and I'm not offering geek gold or asking for any, but I saw this "mistake" in an official game picture and so I wondered if anyone else would catch it.

If you don't want to spoil the fun for others, you can message me with your answer, otherwise just hide it in a spoiler below.

Something is wrong with this picture. Can you find it?



Edit: Looking more closely I see at least 4 mistakes (probably 5).

I've only played once, so I don't know all of the possible violations, but I do see one:

Yellow and green have both taken damage, but they are still drawing their full set of five cards.

I actually missed that one.

Okay, I guess this will turn into how many mistakes can we find.

* Not sure if I read it well (it is a bit unclear) but it looks like Black played Left 5, Right 4, Brake 4. If that is correct, he couldn't have finished his turn in the position where he is now.

* Blue is much more readable. Left 4, Right 5, Brake 2. The same; he cannot have finished his move in the position he is now.

Shouldn't the START track be placed so that Lane 1 is closest to the inside of the first turn?

Green and Yellow have the same problem, however, it is conceivable that it is someone's turn and they simply haven't moved their sled yet. But that doesn't explain the other three. Only red is in a legal position based on his seld cards.

Right. Hadn't checked green, and missed Yellow. Only looked at drift, not at speed.

Oh, and I wonder if the difference in place between black and yellow is even possible within the game. But I cannot be bothered to think about it
