Days of Wonder, an Asmodee design studio, announced Heat: Pedal to the Metal, a new Formula One racing game set in the 1960s from Asger Harding Granerud & Daniel Skjold Pedersen.
“When we first started working on Heat: Pedal to the Metal in 2018 our motivation was to make a Formula One racing game that could reach a wide family audience, while remaining interesting to gamers,” said Asger Harding Granerud and Daniel Skjold Pedersen.
“Not a convoluted betting game, but a racing game where first across the finish line wins. This meant we couldn’t create a rules behemoth that would run long, it had to be done within an hour,” the pair said.
Heat: Pedal to the Metal is a standalone game designed for 1 to 6 players and plays in 30 to 60 minutes. 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. Heat: Pedal to the Metal is expected to be available in October at Essen Spiel and then in Fall worldwide at a suggested retail price of $74,99/64,99€.
