Orbit: Rocket Race 5000 The Game!

Orbit: Rocket Race 5000 is a fast paced, strategic game where each player is a space racer competing to win the Rocket Race 5000! It is a strategy game for 2-6 players, ages 8 and up.

The player who goes out of cards first wins the race. By matching the colors on the cards and utilizing special “tools”, space racers are able to “cheat” to maneuver their way around the space track, creating wormholes and wild wormholes to make it to the finish line before their opponents!

Do you have what it takes to win the Rocket Race 5000?

The 42 Games family has been enjoying Orbit: Rocket Race 5000 for almost a year. Last May we presented the game at the Phoenix Comicon. In addition to Phoenix Comicon, we have demonstrated Orbit at Rincon, Neoncon, Stategicon, and played at the Hilton hotel lobby during BLIZZCON until after 2:00 AM.

We have done many demos of Orbit: Rocket Race 5000 at many individually owned, local game stores such as Comic Oasis in Las Vegas, Game Depot in Arizona, Knight Ware in Studio City California, Emerald Knights in Burbank California, The Game Ogre in California, Hawaii and many more. The support and interest we have been encountering for Orbit is tremendous.

The public momentum continues to grow daily and now we would like to share our game with everyone.

When we reach our goal through kickstarter the funds will enable us to bring this high quality project to our many fans. Special rewards are available for those who help us get this awesome game manufactured!

We have already started negotiating the manufacturing and are ready to go as soon as the project is funded.

We will be sending the rewards out in steps.

(1) The Wallpaper as soon as the funding is completed.

(2) The games and other rewards will be mailed as soon as they arrive from the manufacturer. Normal manufacturing times are 30- 60 days.

Free shipping to all US locations included.
