    Heat: Heavy Rain

    Based on simple and intuitive hand management, Heat: Pedal to the Metal puts players in the driver's seat of intense car races, jockeying for position to cross the finish line first, while managing their car's speed if they don't want to overheat. Selecting the right upgrades for their car will help them hug the curves and keep their engine cool enough to maintain top speeds. Ultimately, their driving skills will be the key to victory!

    Drivers can compete in a single race or use the "Championship System" to play a whole season in one game night, customizing their car before each race to claim the top spot of the podium. They have to be careful as the weather, road conditions, and events will change every race to spice up their championship. Players can also enjoy a solo mode with the Legends Module or add automated drivers as additional opponents in multiplayer games.

    Heat: Pedal to the metal a great game for gatherings.

    Very easy to learn, with modular aspects, that you can include after getting introduced to the game. Great multiplayer and an excellent solo experience with the introduction of AI bots, that play the other drivers. These AI bots can also be used in the multiplayer games when you want to fill the entire roster.

    Fun in both solo and with friends

    It took me a while to buy in to the hype of this game, not being a big racing fan and I had past experiences of not enjoying that one game everybody recommends, but Heat turned out to be super fun.

    Playing solo, the automata does a great job at being super simple to follow, as well as keeping the race entertaining. They can easily be included as well in multiple player games. Heat is super easy to pick up, not so long to set up, and the rules are straightforward enough that anyway can play it and explain it, all while not compromising on its complexity. The game just flows so well. It has quickly become a favorite for me and my friend on our weekends.

    Pricey but good quality. Good storage, unfortunately didn't fit for the expansion map.
