Nothing Now Games, in cooperation with veteran designer Richard Launius (Arkham Horror, Defenders of the Realm), has created an expansion for Thunder Alley, a board game that emulates stock car racing. The Thunder Alley: Crew Chief expansion “provides a new way to play Thunder Alley by adding strategic options which offset the luck of the draw and allow for more control over your team.”
This 148-card expansion will contain several card sets, including:
- Crew Chief Cards (tweak your strategy and take advantage of the cards in your hand)
- Lap Cards (allow for additional laps to be run and tracked)
- Race to the Finish Cards (replace the original Point Tokens from Thunder Alley by providing larger cards that allow for easier visual identification of positions and points for each player, as well as adding the “Lucky Dog” rule module)
- Track Cards (provides a greater variety of tracks for more unique gameplay)
Stretch goals for this project include 32 Setup Cards (allow you to choose a card that you will get in your hand each and every turn during a race) and 32 Conditional Cards (added to each of Crew Chief Decks and change the game slightly when each card is played).
This project will end on April 30, 2016, with a funding goal of $19,000. For more information on this project, visit the Kickstarter page here.
