”I really enjoyed my plays of this. Slightly more than a filler game but not a brain burner either. I think LACORSA is a great game. Quick gameplay, great art, fantastic bits all come together into a fun, exciting racing game”. - Larry Mendel

LACORSA is racing at it's core. It's a board game that simplifies racing down to the battle for position in a Grand Prix race. The LACORSA Grand Prix Game has just been released for crowdfunding on Kickstarter.
The art and culture that surrounds Grand Prix racing is the inspiration for this game. In Italian, “LACORSA” simply means “THE RACE”. The design mission was to communicate the beauty of speed. The strategy of this board game makes race cars feel like pawns on a chess board. These “pawns” are inspired by 60’s Grand Prix cars. The look is completed with the wooden game board which plays on a checkerboard theme and features red and white beechwood inlays.
LACORSA is essentially a card and board game that meshes different game mechanics (simultaneous action selection and war) together with outstanding components. The cards control the movement of the race cars on the game board as they battle for position. The strategy is complex but the game is simple. In LACORSA, each deal of the cards is a race. Championship points are awarded based on the finishing order after each contest. The driver with the most points is crowned World Champion.
"It's tactical, it's a skirmish almost. Muscling for position. Each car. Each time. Each play. Head to head.” - Forensic Gameology
