We gave the Anki Overdrive Starter Kit a glowing review when it first launched, with a 5-star rating. “The claims of this being a video game in real life may sound lofty, but this is exactly what you’re getting. If you think this is just slot-racing smartified, you’re doing it a huge injustice. There’s so much variety in here, and the expansions that have been made available since launch have taken it to a whole new level.”
