Norwegian rules in HEAT are unclear Sun, 25 December 2022 16:55
I wasn't sure where I should direct this feeback.
The Norwegian rules for HEAT are messing things up by letting the same word have several meanings.
(The English, Danish and Swedish rules do *not* make this same mistake)

In the basic English rules, it's clear that a lap is one completion of the circuit, and it takes several rounds (players turns) to complete a lap.

The basic Norwegian rules use the word "runder" (rounds) to mean both lap and turn. For example, on page 3:

"I HEAT kjører alle rundt banen et gitt antall runder..." ("In HEAT everyone drives around the track a certain number of rounds...")

"Ved begynnelsen av hver runde kan du skifte gir..." ("At the beginning of each round, you can change gears...")

The setup graphics has "Runder per løp" ("Rounds per race") at point 2.

On page 4:
The title is called "Spille en runde" ("Playing a round")

On page 6:
"Du kan booste én gang per runde" ("You can boost once per round")

I'd recommend correcting this for any re-print of the Nordic version of HEAT.

Hi,

As someone who owns the Norwegian version, would you be able to confirm for me what language the cards are in the game?

I can’t find an English copy anywhere, but if the cards for the Norwegian version are in English I’ll happily just buy that version and print off an English rulebook

From what I can see of the pictures in the rules, the game is language independent. Thus the cards have no language at all.

BoardGameGeek confirms that. It says:
Language Dependence: No necessary in-game text
