Heat: Pedal to the Metal, a new racing game

Discover Heat: Pedal to the Metal, a new racing game set in the 1960s from Asger Harding Granerud & Daniel Skjold Pedersen.

The countdown begins and sudden deep roars cut through the air as all the cars leap away from their starting lines; the Grand Prix is underway. Dust and wind rush past your helmet as you enter the first corner. Pushing your engine to the limit, you almost spin out but tightening your grip on the steering wheel you slide through the corner apex still in first. You got this!

Based on simple and intuitive hand management, Heat: Pedal to the Metal puts you in the driver’s seat of intense car races. You are jockeying for position to cross the finish line first, while managing your car’s speed if you don’t want to overheat. Selecting the right upgrades for your car will help you hug the curves and keep your engine cool enough to maintain top speeds. But ultimately, your driving skills will be the key to victory!

Experience the thrill of a single race or use the Championship System to play a whole season in one game night, customizing your car before each race to claim the top spot of the podium. However, you will have to be careful as the weather, road conditions and events will change every race and will spice-up your championship. You can also enjoy a solo mode with the Legends Module or add automated drivers as additional opponents in multiplayer games.

It includes 2 giant double-sided boards (4 tracks), 4 Track cards, 6 race cars and matching Gear pawns, 6 player mats, 72 Speed cards, 48 Heat cards & 37 Stress cards, 114 Upgrade cards, 35 Sponsorship cards, 10 Legends cards, 10 Event cards, 1 Legends mat & 1 Championship mat, 6 Weather Tokens & 12 Road Conditions Tokens, 2 Press Corner Standees, 1 Scorepad and 2 Rules booklets.
