This exciting game takes players on a journey through the world of Japanese racing and sports competition. With its colorful and engaging design, Magical Athlete is part of the popular Grimpeur series and comes in a small box with modest components.
At the start of the game, each player receives a set amount of seed money to draft their team of racers. Each racer has a unique power that can modify movement rules or give extra pre- or post-race abilities. Racers come out in random order, and players can choose to shift unbought racers down the board to decrease their prices. A new card is then added to the display, and if all spaces are full, players must buy one.
Once players have their racers, they'll compete in four or five races against each other. For each race, players secretly and simultaneously choose a racer, then roll a d6 and move their racer in turn order. Special powers can modify movement throughout the race, adding an element of surprise and strategy.
At the end of each race, the first two finishers score victory points (VP), with more VP awarded in later races. The player with the most VP after all races is declared the winner of the game.
