When playing a multiplayer game of race, and all but one player achieves a First goal, instead of digging out the 3 vp tied icons, simply give the goal to the left behind player facedown. At the end of the game, face down goals are worth negative VPs. Optionally, you may at this time engage in some schadenfreude at the goal "winner's" expense.

Happy racing.

Mmm, but that makes me think - what about this for a variant:

All goals are worth negative points.

Might end up being kind of like takeovers, i.e., goals would rarely be 'achieved', but strategies might be constrained in interesting ways.

This sounds like a brilliant idea. Must try this out sometime.

That would throw the stats all off. Now people can only say they got 96 pts instead of breaking 100 :rollseyes:
