Got a chance to play some Formula E with my girls the other night! I’ve been excited to try this game since it first landed on Kickstarter. IMO, Clever Mojo Games knocked it out of the park! We’ve had luck with card-based racing games (especially Salmon Run) in the past, so I couldn’t see how the theme and mechanics of this game could go wrong!
Since there were just the three of us, we played a shorter track. It took next to no time to explain the rules, and we were off! We definitely need some more plays, though. I jumped out to a pretty substantial lead early on thanks to a couple of good card draws, and they never caught up. Once everyone gets the hang of the Holy Cow mechanic and the mouse mechanic, I think the runaway game will be a thing of the past.
Needless to say, the game was a hit. I’d really like to do a ‘formal review’ at some point, since I’m so excited about the game. So that’s all I’ll say about it for now. If you have a chance to give it a try, do!
