Description Edit | History

A series of auto racing games with card-based movement where the winning player is determined by a monetary value - race winnings earned in excess of the expenses from buying race vehicles (i.e., profit). A sequence of 3 races is suggested to obtain a cumulative result.

The games are distiguished by a shared movement system where players may advance a car of their own, in turn, by selecting one card from their hand. However each card usually lists additional cars which must also be moved even though they may belong to other players.

Rather than simply assigning the colored car-tokens to individual players randomly, they are instead sold in a monetary auction. At the beginning of each race the full movement deck is dealt evenly to all players. Upon examinination of their hands to identify the colors most favorably supported, the players engage in competitive bidding for ownership as each car is sold separately.

Games within the family present different styles of tracks and may include additional specialized rules.
