The best racing board, card & dice games 🏁 2021

Looking for a really good racing game among the board games 🏁? We have compared the best racing games and listed them clearly.

What does "race" mean in board games?

Racing games among board games are often a type of race where the goal is to be the first to reach a checkpoint. Usually this is achieved by having a higher speed and or better control than the opponents.

Being the first to reach the finish line does not automatically mean "racing game".

Although many board games in which players attempt to reach a specific goal faster than other players are referred to as "racing games" (e.g. Dominion), our list refers specifically to card, dice & board games that also involve some element of physical control of an object. Racing games usually require players to navigate their character(s) around obstacles or through a course.
