Product Description

Formula Dé is dead, long live Formula D! Get ready to push your engine to its limit, to hug the curves in the tight corners, but also to keep up with your opponents to take advantage of the air flow and pass them to win... Taking risks and planning ahead are two qualities you'll need as a pilot if you want to stand on the highest step of the podium!

Formula D is also the excitement of illegal racing in the streets of big cities - anything goes: custom cars, nitro acceleration, drifting in the curves, dirty tricks... The game mechanics stay the same, but use specific rules, cars and tracks.

This edition of Formula D comes with 2 boards: Monaco and Muscle Cars. Although it will be compatible with the old edition boards, those boards will not be reprinted. Instead, new boards will be created to expand the available tracks for more racing fun. This edition also contains elements unseen up to now, such as painted race cars, dashboards, pilot profiles, and tracks

Some negative reviews here border on absurd. This is a great game.
December 12, 2010

Formula D is the best Formula One game around (in print, I mean). If you do not wanna throw any dice at all, find a copy of Avalon Hill's SPEED CIRCUIT, a very good out-of-print racing board game that has a version where you play no dice at all and a lot of variant rules where you can play dice. But one thing in that game never changes: you do not throw dice to move the car. The dices are for random events or pushing the capabilities of your car.

Formula D is fantastic. It has a lot of racing tracks available, each one of them realistic portraying a real track (or, in the newest version, a fantasy street circuit). This new version allows you to use the extra tracks released at the time of the old "Formula Dé".

Game mechanics is very interesting. Incredible how can people say that you "only have to choose a gear and hope for hte best results". Gosh! The gear you chose, just for starters, will have a great impact sometimes in two or even three corners AHEAD. And the negative reviewers simple forgot to tell the strategic choice of how and when use your engine, tire and gear box points, or when to pit to change tires.

Well, I think this game is particularly fun and engaging.

 
 
 
 
 
Dice-fest filled with screams and squeals

All the tense competition of Formula racing right in your home, so many times a XBox system-link party has been put on hold because someone pulled out this game; yeah, it's like that.

Start Your Engines
January 29, 2006
As a relative newcomer to board games, I find myself grabbing up older games to enjoy. Formula De intrigues me because of the variety of boards that can be played. Funagain seems to have many of the add-on tracks available even if the original set is out of stock. It is fun dice-rolling game that keeps players jockeying for position and running their engines, tires, and brakes way beyond their limit to achieve the ultimate win. And for the price, it's a pretty nice package (although the cartoony artwork on the board seems to resemble the kind that used to adorn pinball machines in the 1970's).

The game play involves rolling one of six dice (depending on the gear your car is moving in) and trying to avoid spin-outs, collisions, and engine wear. You can take chances you would never dream of taking if your were actually behind the wheel, and it doesn't even feel bad when your car explodes or you spin out just before the finish line -- it's all part of the fun.

I would love to give it five stars as I really do enjoy this game, but the cars are so tiny and the boards are so large that you can almost count on someone (usually a child) bumping the edge of the board and causing chaos on the speedway. I suppose I could play on the floor and avoid this, but I am just getting too old to sit on the floor.

Thank goodness I am not to old to make "vroom vroom" noises as my car peels out for a 40-point stretch in 6th gear though!
