Formula Motor Racing (FMR) is another of the great
Reiner Knizia card games by GMT.
Claim the prestigious Constructor's Championship in this fast-playing
Reiner Knizia card game of open-wheel auto racing. This is a
'B' tournament with multiple qualifying heats. Heats will be
90 minutes long as listed above. With sign in, admin, and play,
everyone should be done in two hours. Note the time for the Teaching
Session. Although the game is simple, it will not
be taught during play.
Tables of six players (or as close as we can come) will be
assigned randomly. You will play the entire heat of six races
with the same opponents, with the goal of getting the highest
score after all six races are played. Players must stay for all
six races. In Formula Motor Racing, you can finish out of the
points during one or two hands but still wind up winning your
table - or take a comfortable lead into the last race and have
both your cars crash! Just as in real racing series, consistency
over the long haul is more important, and it's not over till
the last results are in.
Table winners will usually be able to advance to the playoffs,
with runners-up included to make complete tables of six as necessary.
Runners-Up should check the Alternate list on the kiosk in Corridor
B to determine their chances of advancing to the next round.
We will have 2 or 3 semifinal tables to be determined by number
of players who qualify to advance from initial heats. The top
6 will advance to the finals.
The cool play mat previously given out to finalists is now
available for all off GMT's website at:
Medalists (plaque winners) will receive merchandise credits
of $15for 1st, $10 for second, $5 for third courtesy of GMT.
Don't miss your chance to have all the fun and glory of being
an F1 Team Principle without ponying up $60 million!
Rebecca Hebner will offer a Juniors
version of Formula Motor Racing for those 12 and under
at 5 PM Thursday in Heritage.
