Up to four Anki DRIVE cars can race per game, in three exciting game modes: Battle Mode, Race Mode, and Team Mode.

In Battle Mode the first car to score a set number of takeouts wins. In Race Mode it’s an all-out fight to the finish line.

In Team Mode players can join up with friends or self-controlled cars to battle against opponents. Each human-controlled car requires a dedicated iOS or Android device.

Cars not connected to a device can be set to steer and fight for themselves in a race to outsmart their competition.

The Robot Race Cars

The STARTER KIT comes with BOSON and KOURAI. Under the hood of each Anki DRIVE car is a built-in computer.

This hardware gives every vehicle the ability to effortlessly stay on the track as you fire at opponents and maneuver your position.

Car commanders can customize each car with exclusive upgrades using points earned in-game: increase a car’s speed on the track, boost weapons, and much more.

Add an expansion car (sold separately), and you can get even more friends and family in on the battle-racing action.

The Physical Race Track

The included STARTER TRACK rolls out to 8.5 x 3.5 feet. Flat surfaces are best for gameplay so any floor in your home will work.

The track is durable and holds up to paw and footprints.

Add an expansion track (sold separately) to boost the family fun and challenge even the most skilled drivers.

Getting Started

Each player must have an iOS or Android device to control a car.

At this time iOS and Android drivers are not able to battle in the same race. To get started download the free Anki DRIVE app from the App Store or Google Play.

To play using an Android device you need a Galaxy S4 or S5 or Galaxy Note 3, 4, or 10.1 (2014 edition).

Ready, Set, Battle

Everything your family needs to play is in the box.

Open the STARTER KIT, unroll the track, and unleash two unique robot car warriors: BOSON, the Fast Attacker, and KOURAI, the Agile Striker.
Challenge friends to a head-to-head battle, or see if you have what it takes to beat a self-controlled robot car.

This reviewer raves of the intriguing fun…

Slot Cars Rev Their Way into the 21st Century!

June 19, 2014

By D. R. Jeanclerc “Reader, Listener & Obsessive…

The Anki DRIVE Starter Kit combines the control and leveling up of a modern video game with the physical thrill of slot car racing.

There’s no doubt about it – the entry fee for this endeavor is pretty steep, but enthusiasts of racing, video games or just technology in general will be rewarded with lots of intriguing fun…

And this review says it is hybrid fun…

Melding generations of gaming for some good fun

June 19, 2014

By Richard Aubin

This is not your Dad’s slot racer or your kid’s video game – it’s a melding of generations of gaming into a very fun hybrid.

Yes, it’s expensive and yes, there are still some kinks to be worked out – but it sure is a good time.

Like slot racing, you don’t have to worry too much about steering control of the cars – just tilt to choose your inside/outside lane position and the car does all the driving for you.

Like modern gaming, there are upgrades, achievements and objectives beyond the lapping wins.

This reviewer gives you an idea of the space needed to play…

Very impressive technology — requires TONS of space

June 19, 2014

By J. Nelson

It wasn’t clear from the picture, but this thing is BIG. The track is 8.5 feet long and 3.5 feet wide, and it needs a nice flat space to stretch out without obstructions (or changes in the flooring type – don’t stretch it over a transition between tile and carpet).

…Truly an amazing technology!
