The excitement in the air is electric as the leaders round the last corner and head for the finish line. Each team has used cunning and skill to position their sprinter for this moment, but only one has done enough to pull off the win!
Will your team lead from the front and risk exhaustion? Should you play it safe in the middle of the pack? Could you surprise everyone by striking from the back? Can you time your move perfectly?
Anyone can race, few become champions!
In Flamme Rouge, players move their riders forward by drawing and playing cards from that rider’s specific deck, depleting it as they go. Use slipstreams to avoid exhaustion and position your team for a well timed sprint for the win. Nominee for several best game awards. For ages 8 and up, 2-4 players, allow 45 minutes to play. Designed in Finland and made in Germany.
“Flamme Rouge” is the cycle-racing term for the red flag displayed at the 1km-to-go mark.
