What do you do if two players cross the finish at the same time?

Does anyone have any rules on this? I can't see anything in the instructions.

If two players cross the finish line at the same time, then the player with the most points wins. If they both have the most points the rules don't indicate any tiebreaker, but my suggestion is to just play another round, as it's a casual game and it will allow you to get in another round of fun.

  • This might cause problems if a third player overtakes the two 'winners' in de tie-breaker round. – JAD May 29 '17 at 9:11
  • @JarkoDubbeldam in that case, the third player wins. – Dallin May 29 '17 at 13:39

According to these rules,

The game ends when one of the players has reached 30 points or when a player draws the last card. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

The player with the most points is the winner.

In the event of a tie, it's often the preferred resolution in a casual setting to declare that all the players tied for first are winners.

However, if you want a single winner, there's nothing appropriate to use as a tie-breaker, so just play more rounds until there's a clear winner.

  • I agree that having multiple winners is the most sensible judgement by the written rules, and should be the go-to for games that don't specify tie-breakers (as opposed to adjusting the game to force a single winner). – Samthere May 30 '17 at 15:00

The game doesn't end when a player crosses the finish line (as uninuitive as it may seem)

From the rules on the publisher's website (also available in other languages):

Game end

The game ends when the last card from the pack has been drawn. The player who’s the furthest on the scoring track is the winner.

Thus if you go past 30 points, you just take another lap.

There are no tiebreakers for if there is a tie when the last card has been drawn. Given the casual nature of the game, I'm going to guess that they are co-winners.

If having co-winners doesn't work for you, the only real option is to play additional rounds until someone comes out ahead.

  • These rules say the game ends when one of the players has reached 30 points or when a player draws the last card. The player with the most points at the end of the game wins. – ikegami May 30 '17 at 15:37
  • @ikegami Huh, the rules I've found were on the official website and have different text. – Thunderforge May 30 '17 at 15:45

    Sounds like i found a newer version. It makes no sense to keep going until there are no cards. There are thousands of cards out now. – ikegami May 30 '17 at 15:49
