"Cycling Party" Board Game



CYCLING PARTY is a board game that brings together the excitement of road cycling as a sport and the enjoyment of strategy games.

Main Features 

Direct and manage your own cycling team. Choose your race strategy, and look for the best opportunities by taking advantage of the situations that occur during the race.

CYCLING PARTY has 3 levels of play: junior, senior and master according to the skill and experience of participants. 

Junior level: play a game at the junior level and learn the basic situations of the race: pelotons, pacelines, breakaways and climbing mountain passes and try to win the stage with  your sprinter. 

Senior level:  you will have to manage the different kinds of riders: Climbers, rouleurs, domestiques… 

Master version: is the most complete and attractive version of the game. Create a stage race with the help of the game software and play an absorbing game with a multitude of prizes and variations: stage awards, the general category, climber, regularity, for teams… to play with your favourite riders by simulating the routes of the best stage races. Excitement and thrills guaranteed!

The Cycling Party manual is the result of more than ten years of development and testing carried out with the aim of offering an attractive game in each of its versions. One of the great virtues of the game is that players can build on their knowledge of the junior version in order to play the senior game and, in turn, when they have mastered the rules of the senior game, they can go on to play the master version.

Authors and History 

Leandro: Computer engineer specialised in CRM and ERP solutions. Cheerful and a little stubborn, he is determined to make CYCLING PARTY a reality. As a player he is a bit of a hard nut, a passive shooter, a tough negotiator and cold strategist, prefering to play with a reasonable amount of risk.

Diego: Chemistry graduate specialised in food safety. Inquisitive and enterprising. Turning an adolescent game into a reality has enabled him to realise a long-held ambition. When he plays CYCLING PARTY he is cautious, minimises risks and curses his legendary bad luck…but always with the desire to keep on trying.

As with so many other things, the germ of the idea that led to the creation of the CYCLING PARTY game we know today came about in a completely fortuitous manner. When he was a teenager, Diego used to spend the summer in Malaga with the rest of his family. There, they revived the popular “bottle caps” game, which they had all played when Diego was much younger. They all pitched in to develop the game by sticking trading cards of famous cyclists of the time to the caps and by formulating a number of basic rules. Using a piece of wood as a board, peseta coins as counters and felt-tip pens to mark out the course to the best of their ability, they created the basic components of the game. Each member of the family formed their own team: Banesto, Kelme, ONCE, Festina, and so on, which they personalised with their favourite riders. The first rules created at this time (most of which are still applied today) are largely responsible for the addictive appeal of the game. They played multiple-stage tours, similar to the master version of today’s game, but in order to calculate times and classifications they had to spend hours with a calculator, pen and paper. Several years passed before they were able to improve this facet of the game.

Back to the daily grind in Vitoria and keen to share the new game his family had invented, Diego showed a rudimentary version of the game to his friends in the garage of his house. He made a large, hand-painted board of sufficient size to show his friends, including Leandro. He explained the rules and soon they began to play the game, and boy how they played – for hours and hours! They became more and more addicted and added more and more rules.… CYCLING PARTY was a great success!!!
After playing the game many times and despite the many innovations they introduced to improve its playability, the game still had an important drawback: calculating the classifications was extremely laborious and time-consuming. However, by using his computer engineering skills, Leandro was able to develop the management software for the master version to make this whole process much easier. In this way, Cycling Party players were left to concentrate on their enjoyment of the game.
 
In the summer of 2012 and after 10 years of enjoyment and fun, the game’s creators decided to turn their dream into reality and began to develop and share the first prototypes of Cycling Party.

Shipping and Costs

Snake Eyes Games is a new publishing company which is launching its first publication worldwide. We are European and we are producing our publications in our country and so, unfortunately, we are forced to add a small charge for shipments abroad.

For us, the most important thing is to be able to offer you an attractive game at a very competitive price. We try to absorb the shipping costs as much as we can and so, although there are, unfortunately, some costs, we want you to know that these are well below the real shipping costs.

Once again, many thanks to everybody for helping to make our dream a reality!

Risks and challenges

 

"Cycling Party" is currently 60% complete and will be finished and launched regardless of the results of the Kickstarter campaign. All the funds raised from the campaign will be used to finish production and to make the improvements that we have described. 

We have been working on this project for more than 3 years and after overcoming many difficulties we now want to tell the largest number of people about our project. What better way to that than with Kickstarter? We want to provide you with the best possible game and the added value of the App. 

We realise that we are being very ambitious and that we will have to overcome many more obstacles along the way, but despite that we know that with your help we will achieve our ambitions.
