Two players face off in Rush Hour Shift, with each trying to be the first to get their car to opponent's side of the playing area.
The game board represents a multi-lane highway with a number of trucks and cars scattered across the lanes. Each player starts with a hand of cards, and the cards let you either move vehicles, shift sections of the highway left or right, or both. Players alternate playing cards until someone moves off the far edge of the game board and wins.
Rush Hour Shift includes ten suggested set-ups.
