Silly and impossible car racing is the theme for Cryptozoic Entertainment's up-coming board game Hot Rod Creeps. Designed by Matt Hyra as a quick and light casual game, it is scheduled for release later this month.
Hot Rod Creeps allows two to six players to create their own custom racetracks, using puzzle-cut board pieces featuring a variety of implausible obstacles. Each racer also creates a custom deck of cards to represent the "gas tank" of a racing car. The unlikely racing teams include "Epic Battle Wizards," "Food Fight," and "Aliens," among others. Each team has a different set of cards to pick from, giving them their own unique racing styles.
"This is just a really fun game," Cryptozoic president Cory Jones said in a press release. "We’ve focused on making sure that each race can be as unique and challenging as players want. At 30-45 minutes a game, it’s fast-paced racing excitement the whole way through."
The game includes everything needed to play, including 186 game cards and 50 double-sided track pieces. The suggested retail price will be $45.00. The release will be supported with on-line contests and promotions.
