The cover of Flamme Rouge: tough-looking cyclists on the streets of a French townFlamme Rouge

This is a clever cycle racing game that I very much enjoyed at Spiel '16. Players have two cyclists with different characteristics and aim to get one of them across the finishing line first.

Each player has two decks of cards – one for each racer – and plays these cards to move their cyclists. However, the cards aren't enough to win the race: slipstreaming other cyclists is gives players a real advantage (and minimises the exhaustion that slows down the cyclists).

The (double-sided) segments of track (including 'mountain' sections) in the box allow lots of configurations, providing many different challenges. And it plays quickly enough that there's tie to try another one!

I now have the Peloton expansion as well.

For 2-4 players, aged 8+, playing time 45 minutes: £32.00 (£26.67 without tax outside the EU)

Cover from Flamme Rouge: Peloton - a vintage cyclist on a penny farthing tackles the coblestonesFlamme Rouge: Peloton

This expands the game in various ways. To start with the "chase group" allows the game to be played with five or six players, with the possibility of breaking away from the pack (or peloton, as they say in cycle racing circles). This is an option that can also be used with fewer players, to add variety to the game.

It includes some new tiles with the infamous pavé – or cobblestones – that really test the riders.

In addition, there is a solitaire version and rules for using just one cyclist each, thus accommodating twelve players in a game.

For 1-12 players, aged 8+, playing time 30-60 minutes: £22.00 (£18.33 without tax outside the EU)
