The game is brilliant and cute. A perfect blend of great components and a clever game system. The theme is a bit thin but everything else is so good it doesn't matter.

Awesome production, beautiful cars and fancy money. I wasn't expecting a lot of this game but it was real fun (with 5 players).
Well give it a change : play it with the focus on fun and not strategy and you will like it. I do.

This is an under the radar game. Get a copy if you can. It gets only a 7 because its audience is not clear. This is a not a family game. The theme, the mechanisms, are very non-family oriented. This is not a gamer's game. People that like Caylus will feel that this game is very light. This is not a filler, since it takes 90 min to play this game. No idea who is the audience for this game. It is a fun and good racing game with a couple of nice twists in it. The mini cars are excellent!

This is a great fun game. There is some strategy in this which you don't see at first.

A race game of sorts, in that first around the track gains some distinct advantages. But it is much more than this - it is also about optimising your moves to avoid paying the leader large sums, whilst trying to second-guess the moves that the others will take so you can attempt to fleece THEM.

Plays well as a family game with some absolutely gorgeous metal car playing pieces.

Pretty random race game, that actually isn't really a race at all. Secret and simul reveal makes it feel like a Raj-type game. Ive won every game Ive played, and Im done playing as well.

Light game where you wanna outguess your opponents and land on them so you move very fast. I'm afraid that in certain cases it can take too long to play for what it is.

Extremely random and occasionally slow-moving (never a good thing for a racing game!). Overall, a reasonably fun game with super-cute components.

Players are racing their cars around a track, trying to earn and conserve their cash in order to purchase their own desert island. Strange game where players play a blind power card to move their car one to seven spaces around the board. If they hit another car's space, they move the distance again, and so on. When every car has moved, the winner collects a payment from every other player, based on that player's space. When a round is complete, players earn cash from ATM's (!), and can purchase spaces on the desert island track. Fun family game for the first 10 minutes, but quickly gets dull. Disappointing. Super cute cars though!

Double scoring system (in-round and end-of-round) is quite original and interesting but the game built around it doesn't really convince me. It all takes a bit long for the limited game depth it offers. Cute miniature cars.

A very simple family-weight race game. The bits are very cute but the gameplay is dull and repetitive - basically blind bidding in disguise. I was ready for the game to be over about halfway through. Possibly better when played with kids ...

Pretty boring race game that rewards some thought, but in the end is too chaotic for my tastes. I don't find the theme interesting at all, and that does not help this rating.

Played once and would have rated a 6, but then found out we had a major rule wrong about how the last player in a race is treated. Need to try again.
