WELCOME TO THE GREAT SPACE RACE!
A short time ago, in a galaxy not too far away, powerful alien races gave the
six most inept species a choice - win or be destroyed. As one of these alien
racers, you must use speed, tactics and luck to ensure the survival of your
people! Of course, winning the Race is not as simple as it sounds. The greater
your speed, the faster you travel, but the more difficult it becomes to avoid
hazards such as the black holes, space amoebas and other dangers of space, not
to mention that each ship is armed with missiles and other deadly weapons. But
donít worry... at the speed of light, no one can hear you scream.
The Great Space Race is a board game for 3-6 players (although it
can be played with only 2 players, it's much more fun the more participants you
have). The game consists of the track (over 6 square feet!),
ships, full color counters, rulebook and three separate decks of cards (special
events, maneuvers and equipment)!
Though large in size (many, many components), the game is quick to learn and
play moves at a fast pace. A full 3-lap game can last 2-3 hours, but the number
of laps can be varied to adjust the game length (with 1 lap typically an hour to
complete). BONUS DOWNLOADABLE MATERIALS
