Description Edit | History

A snowmobile racing game ("Cat" refers to the "Arctic Cat" model of snowmobile) with individually rated machines and drivers. Hard to find and collectible, it has a plastic-covered board with slots for vehicle and driver cards, so that maneuvers can be marked during the course of the game.

The board is divided into regions with different speed characteristics, and there are numerous hazards (bumps, grooves, and ice) that drivers must take into account when making moves. There is also the ability to "force over" other drivers, even off the racing surface - giving the game a more gladiatorial twist. Movement and reaction to hazards are effected by dice rolls, though some drivers provide the ability to move at "maximum speed" during the turn.

More Information Edit | History

Attention: This is a very good roll-and-move racing game of the late 1960ies/early 1970ies.
With 36 riders and 18 snowmobiles to combine, all with different abilities, there are a lot of possibilities to test.
Also it's not sheer luck, you can calculate your risks and you have to use your abilities to the best at the right time.

What's outstanding is the quality of the game components: All-laminated board with pockets for rider/sledge-combo, snowmobile-shaped game pawns and last but not least the cards are of exeptionally high standard.

Really good fun for the whole family with a lot of replay value...
