7 min readMay 23, 2023

Hello there, Raider.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably heard the hype around MixMob and want to get involved. MixMob: Racer 1 is the world’s first card strategy racing game of its kind, combining racing elements of Mario Kart with the card play of Clash Royale. We recently launched our Closed Beta and “The Gathering” campaign, in which we will be releasing a ton of new features over the next few months for players to try out before the official launch of the game. We also have weekly tournaments with a collective prize pool of $3000 USDC and in-game assets. This guide will provide everything you need to know to join the MixMob, start racing, and win some prizes!

Onboarding

There are three different ways you can join the MixMob and access MixMob: Racer 1.

  1. All MixMob Gen0 Mask holders are invited to The Gathering. You can purchase a Gen0 Mask here: https://magiceden.io/marketplace/mixmob
  2. Gen0 Mask holders can share their unique referral link with friends without Masks: https://invite.mixmob.io/. For each valid referral, you earn 300 SUD$, 10 MixPoints towards The Ladder, and entrance into a tournament for even more prizes!
  3. You can also gain access via our website: https://www.mixmob.io/

If you’re a Gen0 Mask holder, you can access the game here: uprising.mixmob.io. Otherwise, enter the game via this link.

Once you are in the game, you will be assigned a secret identity and select your avatar. If you don’t like your in-game name, don’t worry — you will be able to change it in future versions. After this, you’re ready to start racing!

How To Play

Racer 1 has two main components: driving your bot and playing cards from your deck. Driving uses A,S,D,W or the arrow keys, and spacebar. You play cards from your deck using number keys 1 through 5, or by clicking on them with your mouse.

Driving Controls

The courses have 3 lanes, with speed boosts scattered throughout. Use boosts to your advantage! There are also pulses floating along the track. Collecting pulses gives you energy to play cards from your deck that will be crucial to your strategy to win. This new version also includes a variety of upgrades to improve gameplay and up the competition:

  • The Slipstream feature helps the player who is further back gain speed to catch the leader.
  • If you’re in the lead, glitches will appear as Obstacles that slow you down.
  • If you’re neck and neck, you can ram into your opponent to deal 5 damage.
  • And if you need a boost, hit the “W” key for some extra speed at the expense of your health. Once you understand all the controls, it’s time to start racing!

Game Modes

The Arena is open 24/7, and you have access to 3 different game modes.

  1. Free Play, single-player. Here you can race against the Phantom Bot in the Phantom Trial — Mix Circuit for practice with no entry fee. Once you’re ready, it’s time to test your skills against other Raiders in PvP.
  2. PvP, multiplayer. Once you get the hang of Racer 1, raise the stakes and pay 150 SUD$ to race against other MixMob members! Start out on the classic Phantom Trial — Mix Circuit to test your skills. If this is still too easy, compete against the best of the best on the high roller course, Neolympus — Acropolis Ascent.
  3. Watch & Bet. Want to learn from the best and win SUD$ while you watch? Spectate on live races and bet on who you think will win! Tune in for the chance to win bonus raffles while you watch. Watch & Bet is open Thursday — Friday from 6AM-8AM PT and 9AM-11AM PT. It is also live during Qualifier Tournaments on Saturdays and Sundays from 7AM-10AM PT.

Strategy

While the steering mechanics are straightforward, the card deck adds a layer of strategy to your racing style. Each deck has different cards which can be utilized for a different racing strategy. Currently, there is the Alpha Deck and Styler Deck, with the new Tek Deck coming soon.

Here are the cards in each deck so you can hone your strategy:

Competition

MixMob: Racer 1 allows you to leverage your skills. The two PvP arenas, Phantom Trial and Neolympus, are open 24/7 to race. Phantom Trial is more forgiving, but Neolympus has a better payoff if you have faith in your skills. The payoffs can be seen below:

Neolympus
