Let's talk about deck building games!
For those who aren't as familiar with this mechanic in board games, the "essence" of deck-builders is that you start out with a mediocre deck of cards and improve its quality by acquiring new cards throughout the game. When employed in a racing game, you'll at first feel like an infant just learning to walk and stumbling into things, but by the end, you'll be an Olympian athlete zooming by everything.
