A fun casual game which fans of the original property will appreciate

I got Wacky Races in its deluxe version because I loved the idea of the painted miniatures. I have to say that they did not disappoint and are really nice pieces which add to the overall feel during play. Those who don't care about having the painted minis (or who have the time to paint them themselves) should probably buy the normal version.

The gameplay is extremely quick to learn and very fun with some minor strategic choice but a great deal of luck involved as well. It isn't groundbreaking but is a great palette cleanser or casual game. One full playthrough takes around 20-30 minutes (at least when playing with 2 people which we were).

Apart from the really nice minis, the other components are produced to a very high standard, with the exception of the rulebook, which feels a bit cheap and has a couple of typos.

Overall a solid fun game, easy for kids or casuals to pick up which I'd give 7.5 out of 10. That being said given the price point, it is perhaps not worth actually buying unless you are an actual fan of the original cartoon.

Wacky Races: The Board Game puts players in the "driver's seat" with control of their favourite drivers from the cartoon series, including The Slag Brothers, The Gruesome Twosome, Penelope Pitstop, Peter Perfect, and more, each with their own car equipped with special abilities. They compete against each other as well as the game-controlled, mustachioed Dick Dastardly and his wheezy pup Muttley.

Races are simple, yet strategic, as players place cards indicating the terrain tiles to which their racer will move, with the last card played indicating where Dastardly and Muttley will end up. However, it wouldn't be wacky without a little trouble standing in the way. Racers need to dodge or negate traps set by Dastardly as he attempts to stay ahead of the pack. Racers can choose between single races lasting 10-15 minutes or the Championship mode, which offers unique rulesets changing from race-to-race before a winner is named.

The deluxe edition comes with fully painted model cars.

 

 2-6 PLAYERS  |  10-15 MINS  |  AGES 10+
