Increase your pace and win the race!
Race Pace is a dice-free strategic racing board game inspired on Formula 1 theme. Choose from 8 drivers, 8 race teams and 12 circuits, each with a different difficulty, tyre wear and weather conditions. During the race, situations will occur that change the course of the game. From your radio control centre at the pit wall, you anticipate or react to these situations. You give the orders: determine the tyre strategy, improve the car set up, coach the driver, decide on the pit stop strategy, charge or use the Boost system, etcetera. With each lap your car and driver will improve, increasing the Race Pace. But so does the competition.
Race Pace is the new name of our redesigned boardgame Formula Team Manager. Besides a redesign and the name change, multiple rules have been updated to reduce the luck factor and increase the need for the right strategy. The game now includes a Team Mode variant where you can manage two drivers or team up with a friend. With 12 circuits you can even race your own championship!
Think about your tyre strategy: will you start on soft, medium or hard tyre compounds? Keep an eye on the weather forecast in order to change to Wets on time! During the race, situations will occur that can change the course of the game. From your radio control centre at the pit wall, you anticipate or react to these situations: select the right tyres, improve the car set up, coach the driver, order a pit stop, to use the Boost system, etcetera. With each lap your car and driver will improve, increasing the Race Pace. But so does the competition.
Do you have the best strategy to win the race?
Race Pace has an alternative gameplay variant: the Team Mode. In Team Mode, each player manages one team with two drivers, or two players can team up with two different drivers for the same team! The gameplay changes in a way that you can now help each other (or your team mate). However, winning the game in Team Mode is also a team effort, so sacrificing one driver for the race win of the other is not sufficient. This gives the Team Mode a new dimension to the race strategies.
