Game Summary

Each player plays the role of a bicyclist who enjoys attending bicycle events around the country. The goal of Pedal Power is to be the player who has had the most fun and joy riding their bicycle by scoring the most Joy points.

Bicyclists will plan their trips by collecting Trip chips in the appropriate colors for their trip. Trip chips in the right combination allow players to attend bicycle events. The events are either Weekend Tours, Week Long Tours or Expeditions. The longer the event the more Experience cubes a player will earn.

There are five types of experiences a player can earn: Winery, Tandem, Mountain Biking, Camping, and Bed & Breakfast represented by different colored cubes. On a player’s turn if they have the right combination of Experience cubes, the Experience cubes can be turned in for an Experience card which earns players Joy points.

Other experiences such as tail winds, blue skies, headwinds, flat tires, dogs and thunderstorms. When these events occur, players earn Joy cubes or Misery cubes as appropriate. In some cases players can decide that the other players experienced these events. Once players have earned enough Misery and Joy cubes, they may choose to tell a story on their turn for Joy points. However, if by the end of the game the players have not told their stories, much misery is had because the players have forgotten their stories and players lose points for the Misery cubes they still have!

At the beginning of the game each player will choose a Tourist card which is hidden from the other players. Tourist cards encourage players to attend events in specific regions of the country. If the player accomplishes their Tourist card by the end of the game, they score the Joy points indicated on the card.

There are four game end bonuses. All-American Tourist, Great Adventurer, Seasoned Cyclist and the Master Storyteller. The bonuses go to the player who attends the most Tours, most Expeditions, collects the most Experience cards and tells the most stories respectively.

At the end of the game add everything up and the player with the most Joy Points wins!
