I tried searching and am about to play a 2 player game and would like to use the rules I have seen for non player characters. Where can I find these rules? I believe it was roll all dice and move extra cars in selected gears dice??

Why not play 2 players and 4 cars ( 2 cars each?)? I and a friend do that weekly.

Hi Dustin. I think you may be referring to the suggestion put forth in this post by Heckmac.

I tried it, but it didn't seem to add the me-versus-them feeling I had hoped for. I still found myself having to calculate what gear would be best for the AI cars (also even just eye-balling it as if I was qualifying). So, as it turned out for me, I have more fun just controlling multiple cars myself.

I would like a true AI routine that I could use to move bot opponents around the track, but I don't think that the one suggested in that post is right for me. Maybe I don't fully understand it...?

So, I'm seconding the motion to use two or more cars per player. If you have two players with a total of four cars on the track, you might consider scoring them as two teams. 6 5 4 2 points for 1st through 4th place. We like using that.

I made up a jam car variant but we found that we had to guess gears and stuff. I also had damage involved in a modded way. In the end my 2 cars got 1 and 2. My friend got 3 and 4. 2 jam cars made it and 4 crashed and burned on the way.

I think sticking to team cars of 2 or 3 woudl be best as well.

If you're willing to use defunct team names, you could have a yellow/black be Jordan and green/white be Jaguar (among other combinations).

Details... eh...
