CYCLO
Dirk Donvil/Daikin/Lotto, Belgium, 2000s

 

         

 

There are two editions of this game. The second (red box) is a promotion for the Lotto cycling team.

The rules of the game are quite simple but potentially interesting. It is just a dice game, but it could have been the definitive cycling dice game. Unfortunately, it doen't really work. The riders are too big for the board, or maybe there are too many riders, since the board is quite big. What's worse, the riders tend to fall. The game, unfortunately, turns to be quite unplayable.

Dirk Donvil, the game inventor, has contacted me to clarify some points. It seems that due to budget restrictions some things had to be left off: not only a bigger board, but also some additional rules, which make the game even better.
