Heat – Pedal to the Metal


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!

To stay at the front of the pack, you’ll need to push your car to the limit. Will your car endure the long straightaways or will your engine fail in the last curve because you’ve taken too much HEAT?

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. 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.

You start with your dashboard and starting cards. Your actions includes changing gears and playing cards ( with deck building mechanism). Playing cards determines your movement and the number of cards you play are denoted by the gear you are in.

However you can’t go fast all the time. You will need to slow down for corners and if you fail to do so… penalty comes in the form of “Heat”. Heat cards gets thrown into the deck building which can really hinder cards you can play for movement. Too much HEAT cards? You can slow down and allow your engine to cool if you want to vent them out of your deck.

Add legendary automated drivers with the Legends Module so you can play solo, or add them as additional opponents in multiplayer games.
