Rio Grande Games is about to release the latest Friedemann Friese board game design into stores. Full Throttle! is a family friendly moped racing game, for up to six players. The game is for two to six players, ages 10+, plays in around 20 to 40 minutes, and will carry an MSRP of $29.95 when it arrives in stores this month.
About the game:
The wild moped riders are ready to race with their souped-up mopeds! Knowing that neither your courage nor your health insurance lets you take part in such a dangerous race, you and your friends instead choose the safe way to enjoy these races and start betting on the mopeds.
While the six mopeds race three times around the racetrack, trying to avoid getting stuck behind other mopeds or at the choke points, you assess the situation round by round and bet on your favorite mopeds. Who will finally win, place, or show?
In Full Throttle!, no one controls the mopeds, with them racing around the track in a “self-controlled” manner. Each round, reveal racing cards and move the mopeds around the track. Then draft the racing cards to be used as your hidden bets. The undrafted cards are reused for future movement of the mopeds. Choose your bets carefully because the cards you choose will make those mopeds go slower.
After three exciting laps around the racetrack, the race ends after the first three mopeds cross the finish line. Have you collected the best set of racing cards to win Full Throttle!?
