CMON is teaming up with Warner Bros. Consumer Products to bring a classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon to your tabletop with Wacky Races: The Board Game Deluxe. Players will be able to hop into the driver’s seat of their favorite Racer from the series like The Slag Brothers, The Gruesome Twosome, Penelope Pitstop, Peter Perfect, and more as they race down the modular game track, looking to take the checkered flag. However, there’s danger out on the road in the form of Dick Dastardly and his sidekick, Muttley. They’re also out on the race course, controlled by the game itself, setting traps for the other Racers. However, the Racers have seen his tricks before and are prepared. Each Racer has a set of Special Ability cards they can employ to help them get to the front of the pack, as well as avoid those nasty traps!
Wacky Races: The Board Game Deluxe, designed by Andrea Chiarvesio and Fabio Tola features races that are simple, yet strategic. Players place cards matching the terrain their Racer is currently on, with the last card played indicating where Dastardly and Muttley will end up. Players can compete in one-off races or see who’s the fastest over the course of four, with each having own special rules as part of the Championship Circuit!
The Deluxe version of the game comes with 11 beautifully pre-painted miniatures that faithfully recreate the classic look of all the Wacky Racers, with original art and CMON’s artist Giovanna Guimarães. There are also redesigned player dashboards, complete with spaces for the four Special Ability cards each Racer has. Along with that, the Terrain tiles have been made out of thick punch-board, durable enough to handle the toughest road courses.
The pre-order for Wacky Races: The Board Game Deluxe is happening now.
In the 2-4 player team vs. team game, each player selects a DC Super Hero (Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, or Zatanna) or DC Super-Villain (Lex Luthor, Circe, Ocean Master, or Felix Faust) and joins another player on his or her team for a clash against two opponents. The game uses Cryptozoic’s popular Cerberus Engine, which has players build up their decks with the goal of defeating one of their opponents. The new keyword “Assist” on many cards allows a player to lend some help to his or her teammate. Though standalone, the game can be combined with any of the variations of the DC Deck-Building Game to create an even larger experience.
