Not to start any kind of flame war or nothing but this game sounds like Formula D on motorcycles. Is that true? if so then i might be able to sell a few more copies in my store than just the one or two i might be able to sell just cause it looks cool.
not from what i can tell. This game uses a flipdice game mechanic where as Formula D does not. This game also has modular track pieces. So, even though they are both race games, they are not the same game and play very differently. With that said, i haven't played either yet! Formula D is stuck on the order that is being held up by the pre-order of this game. I'll be getting both at the same time. This is just what i think based on what i've read about both games.
The best way I've found to play the game is with 3 players (if using one game set) and each player plays one team of bikes (2 bikes per team).
How about using an extra game set (or at least some more bikes) for 6 players with 2 bike teams? How about 3 sets of bikes for 6 players with 3 bike teams Makes me tingly
(apologies for the public pm) How about we play today? I'm braving the weather to head down south, I think. If you haven't received a call from me within 15 minutes of this post, it is just further evidence of what I putz I am when it comes to keeping in touch with mobile phones, and you should call me.

so, seeing as how today is the 22nd of December, I am going to go ahead and answer my orginal question. It appears the answer is "NO", the game is not on track for it's December release to US/Canada. :( In fact, we've received no updates from any source other than "gone cardboard" on boargamereviews.com which states a January 09 release.
I must say I'm sad... i'd really like to play this game! Can anyone from FFG please comment? I see there has been FFG response on the other threads in this game's forum but none on this one. Why are you avoiding letting us know what's up FFG???
