Race for the Summit has arrived in the US and should clear customs some time next week. It will then begin shipping to distributors and retailers, as well as those who have pre-ordered directly from the Scimitar Games website: http://scimitargames.com



Race for the Summit is a rock climbing card game where 2-6 players challenge a towering rock spire and attempt to be the first to reach the top. Choose from 8 climbers, each with their own preferences for various hold types, as well as a unique special ability that can only be used once per game. Climb conservatively and hope your opponents take too many chances or be aggressive and risk a fall of your own.



Players must compete for position with their opponents while at the same time trying to find the optimal route for their own ascent. Environment cards dictate conditions on the rock, while Action Cards offer more options through special climbing moves; however, they also cause adverse events that players will need to overcome. The game includes 130 cards, 16 of which are transparent plastic allowing players to stack cards on top of each other and still see the underlying holds as they climb the spire.
