ShipRace! "Collectible" 3D ships
March 2021

With improved design, and assembled carefully from separately printed hull, masts and sails. As simple as it looks, two color version of the ships are MUCH harder to make, requiring fine adjustments in relative size of the hull, mast, and sail so that they just snugly fits into a nice looking ship ... COUNTLESS failed attempts before finally managing to finish the all five ships ... Phew!! Hope you like them!

ShipRace! DELUXE - with a set of five colorful 3D ship pieces!
November 2020

After much research, Yuta decided to go with the following five historical ships: Santa Maria, Mayflower, HMS Beagle, Flying Cloud and USS Constitution. Adjustments were made to make them printable in one single 3D piece, in five bright colors: Cotton Candy, Mint, Lemon, Cherry and Sesame. This completes ShipRace! DELUXE package!

3D Mayflower designed by Yuta
September 2020

Yuta Designed 3D ship based on his favorite ship, Mayflower. After much experimentation with the kid-friendly 3D design program TinkerCAD and beginner friendly 3D printer TOYBOX, Yuta was able to print it in three parts to assemble into a cool looking ship! More ships are on their way to make a complete set of five ship tokens for the game!

"New Tide" and Duet Rule Introduced (v3.6)
July 2020

After much play-testing and feedback from our beta-tester friends, we added "New Tide" and Duet (two-person) rule. New Tide let's you refresh your entire hand when stuck, and Duet keeps the game entertaining for two person game... but ShipRace is at its best when played with more than 3 players!

"FRIEND OR FOE" and "MAYDAY"  (v3.4)
March 2020

I am introducing some new rules to make the game even more fun. (v3.4). "FRIEND OR FOE" happens when you catch up to someone else's ship! If you declare FRIEND, then you exchange one card of your choice with each other, but if you declare FOE, then you STEAL one card from each other! "MAYDAY" lets you pick up the save card you need from the deck when you are under attack - so can start sailing again!
