In Wacky Races, players take control of their own racer from the classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon such as The Slag Brothers, The Gruesome Twosome, Penelope Pitstop, or Peter Perfect. Each one has their own unique stats and special abilities. The goal is to get to the finish line first by placing down cards from their hand, representing the terrain tiles. However, Dick Dastardly and Muttley in their Mean Machine will be setting up traps and using the cars secret weaponry against them every mile along the way. Only one car can be the first across the finish line and claim the checkered flag.
