Cubitos is a racing game from John D. Clair (Dead Reckoning, Mystic Vale, Space Base) and Alderac, which mixes frenetic jockeying for position with bag-building.
Designer extraordinaire – Reiner Knizia – created this deck-building game of exploration and adventure. Does it scratch that mosquito bite yearning for jungle escapades?
