Each year, the International Bridge Racing Association selects a city for its many bridges to host its annual Bridgetown Race. This year they have chosen Portland, Oregon USA.
Players using bicycles, taxis, buses, automobiles, the street car, motorcycles and sometimes their own two feet try to be the first to cross each bridge. Be the first to cross every bridge and you win the race!
Each round, players arrange for transportation by placing coordinators on the transportation mode or special action of their choice. Next the player chooses a transportation mode and moves their racer through the streets, trying to be the first to cross a bridge and pick up its flag. The flag is placed on the player’s Bridge Completion card and the first person to collect all 8 flags wins the race.

“Bridgetown Races demands that you pay attention, and while it goes fast, you’ll need a lot of brainpower to stay ahead. It is a lean, mean, fast-action racing game that’s just a big fat pile of fun.” ~~Matt Drake, DrakesFlames
“Bridgetown Races really provides the feeling of a sprint to the finish; lots of strategic options; great for the whole family; races are always tight and the game plays quickly.” ~~Jeff McAleer on www.thegaminggang.com
