Garage Module

The Garage Module adds more upgrade cards to the game, replacing the standard 3 base upgrades. Players now draft from a selection of new basic and advanced garage module upgrades.

During drafting, players take turns drafting 3 upgrade cards (alternatively players can just draw 3 randomly). 3 + number of players in cards are placed face up for selection.

The last player on the race track picks first. The next round the order is reversed with the final picking round starting with the last player again. Any leftover upgrade cards are discarded.

Finally, each player shuffles their drafted upgrades into their deck.
