Description

Players plan their turn, placing dice on the lanes they wish to advance. The catch is, some of the faces on these dice show ‘hazards’. If players roll over a certain number of hazards across their dice, they’ll wipe out!

RallymanGT’s biggest selling points are itsreplayability, beautiful aesthetic, and depth of mechanics.

Rallyman was created and self-published in 2009 by French designer Jean-Christophe Bouvier. The original Rallyman board game was followed by 2011 expansion Rallyman: Dirt, of which only 1,500 copies were ever released. The first print run of the base game and expansion sold out completely, leaving Rallyman and Dirt to become completely out-of-print for more than six years.

Rallyman: DIRT by Jean-Christophe Bouvier is a competitive rally racing game for 1-6 players. Games typically last 60-120 minutes.

With an expansion, the new edition of Rallyman: Dirt can be made compatible with Rallyman: GT, allowing for even further options. Holy Grail games, the publisher behind Rallyman: GT, has now announced that it will put out a new edition of the original Rallyman. Upcoming board game Rallyman: Dirt will combine the base Rallyman board game and Dirt into a single box, including the additional terrain types and tyre choices from the expansion.I can’t lie, I love motor racing. So it’s no surprise I would want to play Rallyman GT based on the theme alone. What is a surprise is how deep and tactical the game is, making each turn feel like a well-crafted puzzle. That element is what had my friends gripped, wanting to play again as soon as we’d finished. We’ve even arranged to continue with a championship, having races take place every couple of weeks! The cars are each uniquely coloured and moulded to resemble their real-world equivalents. Each has a set of their own double-sided tyre dashboard cards (rain and asphalt) and gear markers. Dice representing gear, braking, and coasting, the round marker and pit-stop tile. A large number of tokens and a draw bag make up the rest of the box. Focus tokens can only be used when taking the safer option, but have the caveat that they can only be spent on unrolled dice and increase their cost per dice banked (the first costing 1, the second 2 and so on…) meaning a hefty supply can dwindle as the race goes on.
