You’ve been boosting cars ever since you were a little kid. It was the “family business,” so to speak. So, when you and your cronies stumble across a parking lot full of luxury, heavily modified rally cars, there is no freaking way you can pass up such a tasty cherry just waiting to be plucked. But, to steal them all, and not end up doing a nickel in the big house, you know you must be... Gone In 61 Seconds.
The "Rally Car" cards are those that are arranged face-up in a grid on the playing surface, to begin the game. There are 30 to 40 of these cards in the game (depending on which edition you choose). Each car has a different value (in millions), and is a different color. These are the cards that each player is trying to steal throughout the game. The player with the highest value of cars stolen at the game's end is the winner. So, obviously you want to go after higher value cars.
The "Action" cards are those you use to actually steal cars from the grid (parking lot) of cars on the table. The "Forward" card allows you to drive a car off the lot in, well, forward gear. The "Reverse" card is the opposite. And, the "Plus" card allows you to steal a car in any direction, as well as take an additional turn. To use these cards, you simply replace a car on the table with one. You then keep that car until the end of the game, when you will tally up the total value of all the cars you've stolen. There are between 33 and 59 Action cards in the game (depending on which edition of the game you select).
There are also between 3 and 5 "Security Guard" cards that are placed in the grid on the table, with the cars, at the start of the game. Cars cannot be stolen if another car is blocking its path out of the parking lot, but they also can't be stolen if a guard is in the way, or if he is shining his flashlight directly at the car. There are between 3 and 5 "Blank" cards that remove a Security Guard from play.
Also shown above is the card that elaborates the "Game Play Instructions," or rules, and the promotional artwork that is printed on the other side of the instruction card.
As a backer of this project, there are 5 different reward levels from which to choose. Each provides you with a different edition of the game...
Backer Level 1: Basic Edition
The Basic Edition of the game is comprised of 70 cards, and supports up to 3 players. The game is played as a 3x11 grid of cards. It's a great option if you know you'll only ever be playing the game with 1 or 2 friends.
Backer Level 2: Expanded Edition
The Expanded Edition of the game adds 30 additional cards, for 100 cards, in total, and supports up to 5 players. With this edition, the game is played on a 4x11 grid of cards. This is the lowest backer level to choose if your gaming group is more than 3 players.
Backer Level 3: Booster Edition
The Booster Edition adds a booster pack of "High Value Sports Cars" to the game (120 cards, in total), for an added challenge, and also supports up to 7 players. With this edition, the game is played on a 5x11 grid of cards. This is the lowest backer level to include the booster pack add-on, and necessary if you are playing the game with a large group.
Here's what the "High Value Sports Car" cards look like:
Backer Level 4: Collector's Edition
This Collector's Edition enjoys the same elements as level 3, but is signed by me, the game creator, which adds to its value as a collector's item.
Prior to Gone In 61 Seconds, I have created 3 other super fun card games. If you would like copies of them, too, simply add $26 per deck to your pledge amount, and then send me a message here on Kickstarter, to let me know what your extra dollars are going toward. When it comes time to ship, I check my message history to ensure you're getting all the games you have intended to purchase.
You can learn about each game in detail, as well as watch game play videos for them, by reviewing my prior Kickstarter campaigns:
Note: There is also an Expansion Pack available for Adorable Monsters that you may add to your order for $10 per pack. Make sure to get one for each deck of the base game you purchase.
For backers in The United States, I'm able to ship the game to you free! Yay! Backers outside of The United States will still have to pay shipping. However, I have reduced it as much as possible.
If you have a moment, please help spread the word about this campaign to your friends, family, and, well... anyone! Post a link on Facebook. Tweet a link your followers. Create an entry on Tumblr with a link back here. Share a picture on Instagram. Text your buds. Email your friends. No matter your social media/communication preference, any word of mouth you can help generate will be sincerely appreciated! Thank you!
