Players are bike mechanics who must build as many bikes as they can before race day and be the first one to earn 1000 points. Points are earned by combining a Frame Card, Handlebars Card, and Wheels Card to build a complete bike.
STARTING THE GAME
- Choose a player to be the dealer.
- The dealer shuffles the deck and deals 5 cards to each player.
- The dealer places the deck face down in the middle of the playing area to form a draw pile. The person to the left of the dealer begins play.
DURING THE GAME
- You can play a Parts Card (Frame, Handlebars, or Wheels) to start or continue building a bike
You can play an Action Card to Remove, Steal, or Swap a Parts Card that another player has played.
- You can only play one card per turn. However, a player may play up to three Parts Cards in one turn if all three cards being played are of the same level.
- You may freely move parts between your incomplete bike builds.
- At the end of your turn, you must draw the exact number of cards played during your turn.
WINNING THE GAME
- To win, a player must be the first one to earn 1000 points by building complete bikes.
- For a bike to be complete, it must contain a Frame, Wheels, and Handlebars Card.
BUILDING A BIKE
The following 3 Part Types must all be in play on top of one another to earn points for a complete bike. (See Example to the Right)
- 1 Frame Card
- 1 Handlebars Card
- 1 Wheels Card
A player can earn points by combining any levels of Frame, Handlebars, and Wheels Cards. If all 3 parts within a complete bike are the same, the player earns the total set value for that build. If all 3 parts are not the same, the player adds up the part values to determine the points earned.
AN EXAMPLE OF PLAY
Ted: Begins his turn by playing a Level 3 Frame Build Card. He then draws a card from the top of the Deck and ends his turn.
Marshall: Plays a Remove Card and removes Fred’s Frame and places it in the discard pile. Wilma then draws a card and ends her turn.
Barney: Has a Level 1 Frame, Handlebars, and Wheels in his hand. Because he has 3 Build Cards that are of the same Level (and color), he can play them all at once. He lays down all 3 Build Cards, which meet the requirements for a complete Build. Barney earns 100 points for this Build and places the Build aside. Barney ends his turn by drawing 3 more cards so that the number of cards in his hand is five.
Robin: Plays a Level 5 Wheels cards and then draws a card to end her turn.
Ted: Plays a Steal Card and takes Betty’s Level 5 Wheels and places it in his own workshop.
RULES TO REMEMBER
- You can only play 1 card per turn.
- A player may play up to 3 Parts Cards at one time as long as all of the Parts cards being played are the same level.
- Action Cards do not apply to complete bikes or cards still in a players hand.
- Once a bike is complete, the Parts Cards can not be used to build another bike.
- Play always continues in a clockwise motion.
- There is no limit to the number of bikes a player can build at one time.
- If you reach the end of the deck, reshuffle ALL completed bikes and discarded cards to form a new draw pile. Be sure to write down your total score before the complete bikes are put back into the deck.
