About

Professional Racing Ops (PRO) is a new and exciting tabletop deck building card game for two players. The objective of PRO is to prove that YOU are the best racer. Choose a vehicle that suits your strategy, upgrade it to your standards, and hit the track to let your driving do the talking. Whatever vehicle you choose to drive, each has an exclusive ability that sets it apart. In addition, each vehicle can be upgraded to improve top speed, acceleration, and handling. Upgrades not only improve performance, but certain upgrades may attract the attention of a sponsor. On the track, there is more to racing than what upgrades you have installed. You must also consider taking racing risks in order get ahead and prevent the other racer from getting ahead of you. Off the track, you can gain advantage by sneaking a peak at the track, raiding the Junk Yard for high performance parts (one mans trash is another mans treasure), or by forcing the other racer to reveal what is under their hood.

There are six races, six opportunities to prove that YOU have what it takes to be a PRO racer. After winning a race, players are awarded a trophy that gives special benefits to its owner. By the end of the game, only ONE racer can achieve PRO status: the racer with the most trophies. Will it be you?

VEHICLES:

The Tuner car is the ideal choice for players who appreciate the bold appearance of import vehicles, as well as balanced stats, which provide a stable start to the game. Players driving the Tuner car also have freedom to use nitrous whenever they need it (to a maximum of one time per race unless the nitrous upgrade is installed). The exclusive card for the tuner—the performance spoiler—enables players to increase their handling performance. The performance spoiler also has two attention points, which means that players are awarded a sponsor the instant the spoiler is installed.

The Muscle car is optimal for players who love the look and power of American muscle. During a race, players driving the muscle can use their special ability, which is taking an alternate route, to get ahead during the race. The Muscle car can also take an additional alternate route by playing its exclusive card. What the car lacks in handling, it makes up for in top speed and acceleration, but don’t worry—you can fix that handling problem by installing a custom suspension upgrade or PRO tires! 

The Economy car is designed for players who value the ability to upgrade their vehicle at low costs early in the game. When driving the Economy car, players can install upgrades for $100 below the normal cost (to a minimum of $0). The exclusive card for the Economy car also increases player’s budget by doubling the amount of money received immediately after playing the card. Don’t be fooled by its stats, once upgraded, this car can keep up with the rest of the vehicles and is capable of winning it all. 

The Go-Kart was designed for the adventurous player who likes to experience the thrill of the ride while taking risks that increase their chance of achieving PRO status. During each heat, players driving the Go-Kart have the special ability of installing additional upgrades to enhance their vehicle’s performance. Players can give in to their adventurous side by playing their exclusive card, Hold On, which prevents opponents from getting ahead until you are able to pass them. Like the Go-Kart, but weary of it's Top Speed? Don’t worry—installing gears, which cost $100 less to install or re-install for players driving the Go-Kart, provides the freedom to manipulate it's stats to your liking. 

Upgrades are one way to improve your chances of winning it all by improving your top speed, acceleration, and handling. You can install and/or sell one upgrade per heat (unless you drive the Go-Kart or earned the local mechanic sponsorship).Upgrades are installed face down in your garage and revealed right before the race. If you no longer have a use for a particular upgrade and you really need some cash, you can sell it for its sell cost directly from your garage or your inventory. The Nitrous upgrade has limited use, so be careful not expend it all before you decide to sell it. If you feel like you need more than two purges, you can always install two bottles for top speed performance.

SUPPORT CARDS: 

Support cards also improve your chances of winning by providing you the chance to check out the track before a race, get free parts from the junk yard, and other strategic opportunities to give you the upper hand before a race. During a heat, you can play only one support card and are not permitted to install upgrades that turn…unless of course you raid the junk yard for performance parts or force your opponent to reveal what is under their hood. 

INITIATIVES: 

Initiatives are used during the race to implement real-world and imaginative racing strategies to prevent the other racers from winning. Some initiatives can only be played prior to the track section being revealed, which means that watching a race or having a “Think Fast” initiative may be helpful. You can play as many initiatives as you have in your hand during a race, which could vary depending on how you customize your warehouse. 

TRACK CARDS:

The race takes place by revealing seven cards from the top of the track deck. Each of these seven cards contains the twists and turns of the race track. 

TROPHIES: 

The winner of each race draws a Trophy card from the trophy deck. Trophy cards contain the number of heats before the next race, as well as a variety of rewards for the winner. 

SPONSORS: 

Sponsors are earned by gaining attention points. 3 attention points = one sponsor. Each player may only have up to three sponsors. Different sponsors give racers different advantages for upgrading their vehicle and increasing their cash flow. 

STAT TRACKER/ REFERENCE CARD:

Keep track of your vehicle's stats on the stat tracker card. The reference card is a useful tool for new or beginning players.

Risks and challenges

By going through a local manufacturer, we are able to reduce some of the risks and challenges associated with making a tabletop card game. Our manufacturer has a good reputation in the card making business and we are confident that we will be able to meet the deadlines in time to fulfill Kickstarter pledges.

However, while we will do everything we can to ensure the fulfillment dates are met, there is a risk of delay due to the manufacturer's capacity around this busy season.

Should any risks or challenges arise, we will be sure to provide updates.
