About

RACER is an fun and exciting card game. Players take their turn getting rid of their cards. Object of game is to race to lose all your cards and win the race.

RACER is a very exciting, fast moving card game that we are sure you will love. It is a little like UNO for the 21st century. Players take turns drawing cards and placing them on the Play Pile, trying to get rid of all their cards first. The game gets more and more intense with each card you draw getting you closer to being hit with an Action Card that sets your progress way back.

The deck is made up of cards that let you decide which direction, speed and colour you wish to choose. Your objective is to try to get rid of all your cards first. Each player places a card on the play pile which is either 10 higher or 10 lower than the play pile. If you cannot go you pick up a card from the deck.

Board games create a framework within which we can interact with our friends in a friendly competition. Instead of a tele-presence you are in the same room with living, breathing people. You get to hear their squeals, moans and laughter directly in your ears, without headphones.

RACER requires you to think on your feet, experiment, and otherwise exercise your mind. Each card turn shifts the reality of the game. Board games provide us a way to escape from our current lives. They provide a desired experience that is compellingly different from our real life. RACER delivers by altering the game field using the cards to branch a new gameplay with new card.

RACER begins simple:

shuffle the pack and deal each player five cards & place the deck facedown flip one card over which becomes the play pile each player must place a card which is either 10 higher or 10 lower on the play pile A little like UNO until... you play an Action Card, which can either 'Overtake' your opponent, squirting 'Oil' on the track to 'Change Direction', taking a 'Pit Stop' to 'Change Color' or even 'Over Drive' which injects 'Nitrous Oxide' into the engine so that you 'Overtake All Opponents' and it is your turn again. Each Action Card can have different effects on your opponents such as swapping a card, being skipped, forcing them to pickup 2 cards or even pickup 4 cards.

The game gets more and more intense with each card you draw because the fewer cards that are left in the deck, means a greater chance your opponent will hit you with an Action Card and force you to pick up cards.

Get this race rolling, support this project.

So how did RACER come about?

Heidi, a teacher, could see that children enjoy playing games as a method for picking up essential everyday skills such as addition and multiplication.

Simon decided to put his knowledge and skills as an inventor/entrepreneur to good use and created RACER.  The game is designed to help children learn whilst enjoying a game they love.    

Levi a 4 year old helped to test the game and really enjoyed it so we are sure you will love it too.

The Team

Heidi Teacher - Simon Inventor/Entrepreneur -  Levi Child
(PS: no child labour laws were broken in testing this game hehe).

We think this game combines a bit of everything we are sure you will love not only the great design, the creativity, but also the excitement and fun you will experience in sharing the game with your whole family or friends.

We put together this Kickstarter campaign because we can't build this without you.  So if you're into Card Games or Racing, or you simply need help with your maths, please help us make RACER Card Game a reality. 

We think you'll love it as much as we do.

Risks and challenges

Production of the game is pretty simple: it's just a card game.
The biggest challenge for us would actually be if you rocket us into space with so many orders. We're already working with our suppliers to make sure that no matter how many people pledge, everyone gets their RACER card game quickly after the campaign ends. No-one wants to be updated with emails advising us of delays etc, we just want to play the game ASAP. If you back this project, we want to be sure you can start racing your friends as soon as possible. This is why for the initial kickstarter we are not creating any complicated rewards such as t-shirts or other complicated reward tiers that would make the distribution process take a lot longer. We're keeping it as simple as possible: support our project and in return we'll send you the playable game.
