Full Throttle! is another terrific game from Friedemann Friese, designer of Power Grid and Friday.
The crazy moped riders are ready to race with their souped-up mopeds! Knowing that neither your courage nor your health insurance lets you take part in such a dangerous race, you and your friends instead choose the safe way of enjoyment and start betting on the mopeds.
While the six mopeds race three times around the racetrack, trying to avoid getting stuck behind other mopeds or at the choke points, you assess the situation round by round and bet on your favorite mopeds. Who will finally win, place, or show?
In Full Throttle! no one controls the mopeds. Instead, they race around the track in a “self-controlled” manner. Each round, reveal racing cards and move the mopeds around the track. Then draft the racing cards to be used as your hidden bets. The undrafted cards are reused for the future movement of the mopeds. Choose your bets carefully because the cards you choose will slow the mopeds down.
After three exciting laps around the racetrack, the race ends after the first three mopeds cross the finish line. Have you collected the best set of racing
cards to win Full Throttle!?
