Good Racing Games

In our last Intro article, we showed off even more good cooperative games, and those are great, but sometimes you need something a little faster paced, something to really get your heart racing. That’s why this time we’re introducing you to some of our favourite racing games:
Winner’s Circle is a competitive game for 2 to 6 players that can be played in 45 to 60 minutes. In this high stakes horse betting game, players bet on 1 of 7 horses to win the race, and then play cards collectively to move the horses. You can form temporary alliances and work together to move the same horse, or frantically compete to get your horse ahead of the others! The winner is the player with the most money at the end of the game! If you’re looking for a racing game with a fun betting element, give this one a try!
RoboRally is a competitive game for 2 to 8 players that can be played in 45 to 120 minutes. In this frantic game of racing robots, each player speeds to reach a series of checkpoints before their opponents. To do this, player simultaneously program actions, face down, and then reveal their actions, moving their robots based on the speed of their preprogrammed actions. Robots can bump into each other, move on conveyors, and fall in holes! You can even get a leg up by blowing up your opponents’ robots!
