Racer Knights of Falconus has players assembling fantastic
vehicles (called Racers) from punch-out plastic cards then facing
each other in a game that melds demolition derby and knightly
jousts. Racer Knights is sold in individual foil packs (retailing for
$2.99 US) that contain everything necessary for a single player to
begin parts to build a single Racer, rules, dice, play markers, and a
card for the vehicle_s pilot (a Knight). Players purchase additional
foil packs in order to get a selection of interchangeable parts,
enabling them to build the best Racer for their style of play.
A World of Chivalry, Magic, and Derring-Do
Racer Knights takes place in the fantastic lands of Valoron, a land
of magic, chivalry and high-octane competition. At the Falconus
Academy, students learn to pilot and build Racers and to become
Knights. Students and teachers hail from the five species of Valoron:
including humans, mystical alfar, brutish ogres, devious serpid, and
wily gremlins. Each species brings its own tactics and strengths to
the arena. Students compete to be the best of the best and represent
their lands in jousts both for pride and to resolve great disputes.
Speed and Valor Bring Victory
In Racer Knights, each player controls a single Racer and faces
multiple opponents in jousts for glory. A joust is part race and part
battle: Players gain Glory by crossing various waypoints on the way
to the finish line, and by destroying their opponents with a variety of
fantastic weapons. The player with the most Glory at the end of the
joust wins. Racers built for speed and agility are matched by heavy-
hitters designed for combat.
Each Racer includes four key components: a chassis, an engine, a set
of tires, and a weapon. Each also has a Knight as a pilot and can
have up to four shields. Every part is interchangeable so that any
chassis can use any engine or set of tires, for example. This
interchangeability even reaches across the five species in the game,
so that an ogre Knight can pilot a Racer built on a human chassis,
but with a gremlin engine, serpid tires, and an alfar weapon. This
allows players to tweak their Racers to perfectly suit their play styles.
The base set of Racer Knights of Falconus includes over 100
different plastic Racer components and over 20 Knights, making for
well over a million possible (and playable) combinations. This
degree of customization is unheard of in the hobby.
