Not a bad year for racing as we have a handful of some good racing games. This year did not compare to the grand year in racing from last year, but I am happy with the second half of the year with the games that entered the system. Let me know what you think of the race game of the year and your choice for runner up as I haven't played all of them yet. Race On! Let's hope for another good year next year.

You want to be the fastest predator, but therefore you need energy. To get the energy, you eat preys. Eating a butterfly brings you a little bit energy (1), a mouse more (2), rabbits more than mice (3), pigs are even more nutritious (4) and eating a deer brings you the most energy (5).

Do you have what it takes to cross the finish line first and win the trophy? Use shortcuts, overtake or turbo boost past your opponents to get in front and change lanes to avoid the oil slicks in your way. The LEGO Dice brings a new twist on a classic racing game for 2 to 4 players.

this game each player must gallop as fast as possible, his horses from the paddock on the edge of the stall in the middle of moving schedule. But this is easier said than done, because sometimes horses can collide.
Wendy:im Gallop is one of three children' games from the new Wendy-home series published by AMIGO.

In Grand Prix Jumping the players take on the roles of riders leading their steeds through a Grand Prix competition course which includes fences of varying rail heights, as well as a water jump. Getting through the course fast will help your cause but will not guarantee victory as the winner is not the horse that finishes fastest but the one with fewest fault points.

Nautical:

In Over The Edge!, each player tries to be the first to circumnavigate the Flat Earth and avoid falling over the edge into the abyss. During their voyage, they hope to avoid disease, inclement weather, mutiny, and the dreaded dead calm. Players can also cause havoc to the fortunes to other players if so inclined. The board is a representation of a world map of the 15th century depicting a flat earth with a single old world continent surrounded by the seas. As captain of their ship, each player decides when to sail on to the next port. Is the crew loyal? Have repairs been made? Are the winds favorable (and will they last)? Play your cards carefully, and you may be the first to return to your home port successfully without falling Over the Edge.

In this piecepack sailing race, players have to reach all five buoys and be back in Port Flower first in order to win. Players control the movement of both their boat and a shark of their choice by dividing the outcome of the dice roll. Sharks can set players back in the game, since the organization of the race does not want the contestants to be in danger.

Children's game as they can race the cars either indoors or outdoors. The kids can be creative and build tracks with curves, fences, jumps and other obstacles and race your little toy car around the track. May the most skillful racer win! This sounds like it's more along the lines of playing with matchbox cars. Racing matchbox cars use to be my favorite thing to do as a kid along with my tonka trucks, but I didn't consider it a board game..
