My wife and I played 4 games of Heat: Pedal to the Metal with just 2 cars. It’s been a hoot. She won 3 out of 4 races and they have been getting more competitive over time. The first race was spent mostly learning the basic rules. For some reason we always had trouble with the Boost/Cooldown rule but I think we have finally figured it out. There are some good playthrough videos on YouTube that really helped out. The big downside of only running two cars is only one person has a chance to slipstream.

We like this game so much we haven’t bothered to put it back in the game closet and just leave it out on the kitchen table or a nearby empty surface.

I really like the theme of 1950s motor racing and when you play you kind of see why 1 out every three drivers died in crash. It can get hectic out there. Keep it between the ditches people!
