Fast & Furious: Full Throttle

GSL1100I’m kind of surprised we haven’t seen a Fast & Furious game until now. Coming in the the Fall from Game Salute, Fast & Furious: Full Throttle is a game of hand management. Played primarily with cards, you’ll be discarding to change gears, playing sets to speed ahead, and decreasing your hand size when you get speed penalties.

With a play time of only 30 minutes, and an age range of 10+, it looks like it’s going to be lighter, family fare. That’s by no means a knock against it! From what I’m seeing, it looks like it’ll be a pretty good time! When it hits shelves this fall it’ll have a MSRP of $40.

Planet Mercenary is a Schlock Mercenary roleplaying game, which is probably all I need to say about that.

And then there’s Fast & Furious: Full Throttle, a board game based on the movie series. Obviously, it’s a racing game. Movement is governed by the play of gear cards. Before each game, though, players select sets of upgrades, each of which allows a car a specific type of special move once during a race.
