Full Throttle is the newest game by Friedemann Friese, the award-winning designer of Power Grid and Friday. In this game, the players don’t control the mopeds, but secretly bet on which mopeds will win.
The rules are simple. Each round, cards are revealed that move the mopeds around the track. Then the players secretly draft from those cards, and some cards are returned to the draw pile. The cards that the players keep will give them points if those moped are top finishers. But be careful!
The cards removed will reduce the movement of those mopeds. After 3 laps, points are awarded to the first 3 mopeds to cross the finish line. Each matching card a player kept multiplies the points. The best bettor wins!
