***UPDATE: ALL STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED! NEW PERFORMANCE UPGRADE & RPM CARD DESIGNS REVEALED BELOW!
Check out the NEW VIDEO below featuring a sneak peek at an expanded play RPM card:
Using your own cars, race opponents along card tracks that you create. The cards are expandable so you can challenge unlimited players and build courses as simple or as big as you can imagine. Play is fast and easy for ages 4 and up (8 and up for expanded play option).
On your turn, flip one track card over, and follow the signs as you race through jumps and obstacles toward the finish line. The first player to reach the winner's circle wins one of five trophies. The player with the most trophies after five races is the tournament champion!
Jumps, shortcuts and passing lanes help you speed past opponents while stoplights, detours, flat tires and oil slicks will slow you down.
OIL CARD DEMO VIDEO
If you land on an oil drum card, you can choose to place an oil slick card on any opponent's lane. Your opponent must use a turn to clear the oil slick before moving onto that card, helping you catch up or advance ahead. Play the video below!

If you can dream it, you can build it. From short drag sprints to races all over the house, the possibilities are endless. Here are a few of our favorite creations:
One lazy Saturday afternoon, James was building race tracks out of odds and ends from around the house (like he often does) when he used some playing cards to make a race lane. He invited me to race alongside him with one of his cars. As we were skimming our cars over the cards an idea for a game sparked. We made the first Card Racing prototype out of crude drawings on construction paper that weekend.
The game was immediately addicting, and we started refining and perfecting it over time. Claire and the whole family got involved by playing and helping to make improvements. It's now been played and tested hundreds of times and is a favorite of family and friends.
We're excited to share it with all of you!
Risks and challenges
We already have a printer lined up to the print the cards, and the prototypes they delivered look great! I have 15 years experience working with printers as a graphic designer and through my brand marketing agency, 20|20 Creative Group.
We don't anticipate any set-backs or challenges, but if they come, we will be ready to push through them to ensure delivery to all of our supporters. We learned a lot from launching Jimmy Towel, on Kickstarter and this project has a lot fewer moving parts.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
