Europe, 1933. Charles C Buttersworth, an eccentric American billionaire, flight enthusiast and amateur filmmaker, has a dream.
He wants to bring together the best pilots from all corners of the globe to compete in a single event. There'll be riches at stake, but also fame and glory, because he wants to film the race and show it in theaters around the world.
Audiences will want to see thrills and spills, so it won't just be the fastest pilots winning the prize, but the smartest and most daring.
It won't be a great air race. It will be the Great Air Race.
The Great Air Race is played with cards, which represent the player’s progress through the various stages of the race.
A race is made up of a number of Stage cards (usually 3-5), laid out to form a course. Players must traverse this course by playing Flight cards, each of which denotes a certain amount of Progress towards this goal.
The first player to reach the finish line at the end of the race is the winner.
