What is TurtleRace?

TurtleRace is a multi-player strategic computer card game that provides players with both fun and intellectual challenges.

Long term strategy, patience, competence, reading people, memory.


Game Modes

Forest mode and medieval castle mode.


Game Rule

Before starting the game, each player secretly draws a color to know which turtles they are with. Turtles' movement is controlled by cards drawn from a common pool (always chosen from 5 cards in hand). These cards depict colored (one-color or rainbow) turtles and movement (1 or 2 steps forward, 1 step backwards; also, in the case of some rainbow-colored turtle cards, moving the last turtle forward). When a turtle moves on a space where another turtle is waiting, it is placed on the top of that turtle. When a turtle with other turtles on its back is moved, all the other turtles on top of it are carried with this turtle. The first turtle to reach the last field wins.
