Stronghold Games had another hefty line up of games at this year’s Origins and one which looked pretty interesting is the latest design from Geoff Engelstein. One crucial real world aspect of stock car racing which never seems to get enough love in gaming is the Pit Crew. With this new fast playing card game, up to nine (yes, nine!) players take on the roles of crews aiming to refuel, repair, and jury rig their racing team to victory lane. Pit Crew zooms into stores July 26th and carries an MSRP of $24.95.
While the driver gets all the attention, the pit crew are the unsung heroes of racing…
Pit Crew is a lightning-fast game where up to three teams of players must work together to get their race car back onto the track as quickly as possible. There are no turns in Pit Crew, as cards can be played at any time, but teams need to work together to make sure that their tires are properly replaced, fuel tank filled up, and engine repaired without making any costly mistakes. And will your team just go as fast as they can to get back out on the track? Or will you play smart and earn the Turbo Bonuses that can mean the difference between the checkered flag and last place?
Pit Crew challenges players to balance speed and skill in a fast-paced game of teamwork and communication.
