I'm not sure if the Lamot brothers ever considered adding this one up,
Oh we did We playtested a number of different mechanisms. Rest assured by the time the game is published no stone is left unturned !
This included a slipstreaming mechanisms which included drawing your route using pens and players receiving a bonus if they landed on another players route. A lot of the playtesters did not like using pens and it slowed the game down so it was dropped.
Thanks for the knd words and the enthusiasm. Have fun !
