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

Dice Fest? Still Super Fun!
August 23, 2004

Ok, so this game will have you throwing dice every turn. But guess what? Its still super fun and challenging and plays well whether you are a kid or an adult!

While luck is certainly a factor, I havent played a game where the winner was accused of 'being lucky' nor the loser claiming 'bad luck'! More likely, its a risky move that paid off for he winner and a bad tactical decision by the loser.

So, dont be put off by all the 'dice fest' comments. Anyway, the long standing top rated games Axis & Allies also sees a lot of dice throwing dosent it?

Give it a shot. The many different tracks make it even better!

Strategy, and just enough luck
August 20, 2004

Many in the reviews section here claim that luck plays too big a factor in this game. If this were the case, why is it that in both our second and third seasons of this game, one player had a Michael Schumacher-like lock on the series? And only two other players regularly chellenged him (out of a full complement of ten, plus some substitute drivers)?

In the last 18 races, he has missed the podium only twice, and taken first place no less than 11 times (even counting the time he did not attend the race). It can't *just* be our rules tweaks or an inordinate amount of luck with the dice on his part.

Yes, there is an element of luck, but far from excessively so - in fact, no more so than in the real thing.

A five-star game for the connoiseur.

This game rocks
February 03, 2004

I have many boardgames and lots of different types. I love them all. But this game is just awesome. It is not that slow pace brain thinking strategy planning take forever type of game, which I love at certain times. No it is a beer and popcorn type of game. Just don't spill your beer on the boards as they are absolutely beautiful. Many many compliments to the artist. In between races we just dive into the art work of the boards and always seem to find new and funny things that are in them. And yet the tracks are fantastically portrayed.

I find this game to have that delicate balance of lightness with some serious strageties. I can't tell you how many times I have played this game to have the race come down to the last corner of the game to determine winner or loser. Which makes you reflect back to some earlier plays that you wish you could have done different.

There is a tremendous amount of different tracks. We own 29 tracks. Each one has its own differences and have to be raced differently. And you can even combine 2 to make one big hugh track.

You can even get little cars and paint them yourselfs for a more interesting setup.

I love the dice part. IT is different than any other type of dice game in that the gears of the car are reflected on the dice. Love that 6th gear which allows you to move up to 30 spaces. Boy you talk about speed. Playing the game and rolling a die that can go up to 30 makes you feel like your hauling butt.

Plus: Absolutely beautiful boards (best I have seen in any game), Lots of strategies because of the random factor of the dice, negociating turns and straights, pit stops, breakdowns and lots of track variety, light hearted beer and pretzel game with a tone of seriousness cause you want to finish the race and win. The ability to make up some cool house rules, and a great game for league play with up to 10 friends or even more, why not?

I love this game and it rocks. Totally addicting.
