BREAKING AWAY
John Harrington, Fiendish Games, UK, 1996
 


Track cycling game, highly praised game among gamers. In this one luck does not play the main part. The mechanics of the game ar innovative and work quite well. (

Unlike most track cycling games, this one does not offer the possibility of playing different types of races. In this game you play a team race. I file it under "track cycling" though, since the the board is velodrome-shaped, and there are no climbs or other outdoors-cycling elements. 

However, there are some home-made boards around (since the original is not so unforgettable), and some of them are not velodrome-shaped. Check the "unpublished games" section to see what I mean.
