Product Description

Product Description

Formula D transports you into the turbulent world of Formula 1: Don't lose control of the engine in the last bottleneck, master the chicane, stick to your opponent's back wheels, take advantage of the slip stream and then coolly overtake him. A Formula 1 driver has to be willing to take risks and be able to plan ahead... at least if you want to get to the very top of the winner's podium. Formula D also adds an alternate version of play including the suspense of illegal racing on the streets of the big cities. Anything goes: customized cars, nitro fuel injection, skidding in roundabouts, unfair tricks. The game principles always stay the same, but different cars, rules and circuits come into play.

I saw this game on TableTop and thought it looked interesting, different, and fun. I was not disappointed. The gameplay mechanics are simple and quick, and anyone should be able to get from opening the box to playing the game in only a few minutes. There are basic rules, advanced rules and optional rules that can be used to make the game easy or more difficult. You can select between a generic F1 racer, a street racer with different skills, vehicle "hit points" and special abilities or design your own car/driver.

I would highly recommend this game to anyone as it is a blast and can accommodate up to 10 players. Detailed review below.

GAME BOARD

Formula D comes with 2 game boards. Monaco (F1) and Road Race City (a street race track).

Monaco is a handful of technical corners and gear selection here is critical because you will need to flow from fast open corners to tight technical ones and you do not want to overshoot.

Road Race City does have technical section, but for the most part it is open corners. The difficulty is in the special details on this course. There is a section with road damage, an area where the local residents shoot at you, and a "hit point" bonus for whoever buzzes the police station the fastest. This one is my favorite.

GAME PLAY

Most of my gaming friends did not seem interested or did not understand how a board game could simulate car racing. Formula D actually does this very well. By making the player select gears to change between dice that have different min/max values (or "speeds") and requiring the players to adjust turn order based on position on the track the game simulates racing well and provides a need to make well thought out gear selections.

Formula D is a re-make of the popular French racing game Formula De. Though I never owned that game, I am told the two versions are very similar. The new version has a few minor rules changes and adds a street racing format as an alternative method of play. (I have not tried the street racing format, yet, but will update my game review when I have done so.)

One of the things I like best about this game is its ability to accommodate up to 10 players. Very few board games can handle such a large group. In my opinion, the more players there are on the track, the more fun the game gets. The track can get a bit crowded and players can be more aggressive and take more chances that may negatively effect their own vehicle or the vehicles around them. This ups the competitive nature of the game, and with the right group of players, there's sure to be plenty of trash-talking and friendly jibes.

Each player chooses one of the tiny race cars to represent themselves. (The cars are of varying body styles and paint jobs, so it's not too hard to distinguish yourself from the other players.) A die is rolled to determine each person's starting position on the track. Each player is also assigned a "gearbox." This gearbox is a small plastic tray that holds a small cardboard pegboard. On the pegboard is a small gearbox (for gears 1-6) and a line of peg holes for each of the following attributes of your vehicle: tires, brakes, gearbox, car body, engine, and suspension. In the simplified version of the game, each player begins the game with identical car attributes.

As a 40 y/o father of a 10 y/o and 8 y/o, there just aren't many board games that are "fun" for me to play with them. Formula D certainly is! It's basic ruleset is easy for kids to pickup, but still pretty enjoyable to older players. After 4-5 games, you should be ready to use the advanced ruleset which ups the realism (and fun) for all. This is one of the rare games that you look forward to playing. It is a game that is more fun with more players...but if you only have 2-3 players, just double up on the cars for everyone.

The game itself is basically a race around the track with formula 1 cars (flipside of the board provides a more arcade like race with various hazards). There is a fair amount of luck involved (as with most dice games), but with longer races and the advanced rules, strategy does come into play a bit more.

There are various add on tracks for purchase under both the Formula D title, and the older Formula De (tracks are compatible). These provide for enough variety to keep things entertaining. It is definitely a game that will appeal to race fans (Formula 1 fans in particular since most tracks are Formula 1 circuits), but even those who aren't race fans will enjoy the game as well.

Overall, this is the most entertaining board game I have played in a long, long while.

This is a perfect game: easy to learn for both the "basic" and "advanced" modes, fast to set up, really fun and very enjoyable for all family members.

It is also very flexible in terms of game length, you can play a single lap in some 20 minutes, or can plan for a full racing season that may take a full day if you desire. Also it is very flexible in terms of number of players, as it can be 2-10. I have even played it solo (practice mode?) and even then is quite fun. You can also play with "stock cars" or can even make your custom ones.

Worthily is to mention the top notch quality of all its components. I just wish the cars were bigger, but as it is the board is already big enough!
