#71: Breaking Away

Breaking Away, designed by John Harrington, is a bicycle racing game that uses no dice or cards. Each player has four cyclists of varying ability on his team. Movement allowances are adjusted by counting the number of cyclists directly in front of you -- the more the better.

Stephen Glenn: "One of the mysteries of modern board gaming is why this hasn't been picked up by a major publisher. It's quite simply the best racing game I own."

Henning Kropke: "Best bicycle race game."

Ok. For all of my trash talking, this surprising entry is quite welcome. Now if only I could find a copy.

As was pointed out on my blog, the game is out of stock, but you can ask the manufacturer to let you know when it comes back. Should be soon
