This Grand Prix Board Game Lets You Race Your Friends In Style

Great news: it’s time to retire that cheesy Monopoly race car for good. Chances are you’re not alone in wishing there was a more engaging way to integrate cars into a board game beyond superficially-shaped pieces. Designer Mark Haskins has been working on this challenge for years as a passion project, and the result is Lacorsa—“the race” in Italian.

It’s a game designed around overtaking, works with between 2–6 players (and teams!), and the winner is crowned World Champion. Each deal is a race, with the cards played by “drivers” through the hand. Great, right? After seven hands, a winner gets to gloat.

Besides an interesting style of gameplay, Lacorsa looks beautiful, with shapely game pieces and crisp card design. Even the rules are called, appropriately, “Sporting Regulations”. They’re online if you’d like to get a jump on your competition.

While I haven’t had a chance to play it yet, we’ve invited Haskins to demo it at the office—defeating  coworkers in a game of skill is worth a bit of lost productivity, surely…

To stay on top of the game’s progress, visit the Lacorsa website and mark March 8 in your calendar as the start of Lacorsa’s crowdfunding campaign.

Everyone’s a winner in this board game, where you get to race your pals with a sleek racing car. The goal is to be the first player to cross the finish line, and you can do it up in style with a personalized sign that says “Best Player Wins.”This game starts off slow, but once you hit “go” on the track, it builds into an adrenaline-pumping race for glory. It’s easy to play, too. Just place the four discs on the track and watch as they zigzag their way around. It’s an easy way to play board games with friends and family. Well, visiting the seedroyaltysurvey.com website is also a fascinating the experience of mine because I played wonderful games in a top Canadian secure online casino and earned money through it.

I’d rather play the good old game of scramble! As for me, it is more interesting for the whole family and is suitable even for children, because they can use tools such as this to solve the puzzle https://unscramblenow.com/unscramble/ilooer. What makes the game universal for any age

Needs a circular track not a straight piece of wood…seems more like leapfrog and that kills it for me.. I like the cool cars though.

Very cool, but I’m going to have to believe that very few women are going to want to play this…as opposed to say Monopoly, etc…that are a bit more gender neutral and inclusive.
