The tension mounts. It's just a few moments before the race begins! The drivers are held ready, their concentration is at maximum, their gestures are sure and precise. They are alone in their machines, and will emerge only after three laps at full speed. Finally, the starting signal lights up, and the race is on!

From the outset, you have to weave, jostle, accelerate, slow down, and choose the best trajectories. Only the most skillful will manage to avoid running off the track! Then, you're at the final straightaway. At the finish line is the checkered flag, synonymous with victory. Your hands tremble and become moist. There is no room for error -- victory is at hand for the future champion of PitchCar!

PitchCar is at the same time a game of dexterity and a game of racecars. Superbly manufactured, this wooden game -- made up of 16 portions of circuit: 10 curves and 6 straight lines -- lets you to construct ten different circuits over 12 feet long. Choose one of the 8 cars, build your circuit and flick your finger to propel your racing car. Follow the best trajectories by using the guardrails, but watch out because your opponents are gunning for you. Entertaining and family oriented, PitchCar will enchant players of all ages.


ShushCon is a games and geekery convention March 11th, 12th, & 13th, 2016 at the Waccamaw Neck Branch Library in Pawleys Island, SC.
