Game Arrivals: Week of July 17th - 23rd

Here's a look at our most recent game arrivals:

    New Game Arrival!
Crazy Karts
Portal Games
Crazy Karts is a team based family game about a crazy race. It comes with different tracks, dozens of obstacles, four unique fantasy factions, and many power-ups.

The race runs through a maze of obstacles with 2 drivers (players) in each kart.  Each driver controls only half of their kart's controls. One can speed up and attack enemy karts while the other brakes and turns. Teammates need to cooperate, but they can't talk.  Each will need to be good at predicting what their partner is going to do.

Get in the kart, load your cannon and... Off you go!
