This is a great game. I really enjoy it. I have to admit I was prepared to dislike this game. I don't like to gamble and have never been to a horse race. But this game offers a lot play value in a relatively short amount of time. The game takes place over the course of a horse race. Players can buy horses or bet on them. Buying a horse has some distinct advantages as your horse will move more often. Saving your money and betting on a winning horse is a good strategy too. The excitement builds as the horses near the finish line...

The Good stuff: The rules are simple, and easy to follow. The board is very helpful as it lists the actions players take each turn where everyone can see them. The game play is quick, and gives the feeling of horse race as the game progresses. One nice feature is that players can buy a horse (and collect money if thier horse wins) or bet on another player's horse. So there are diffent paths to victory. This is a great famly game beause everyone plays until the game is over, they you check to see who has won. No one gets eliminated.

The Not so Good Stuff: There doesn't seem to be enough money in the game to cover all of the payouts. Poker chips seem to work for most people in fixing this issue. Also the little stickers on the horse come off and need to be re-applied. Both of these are minor issues compared to the overall value of the game.

My family and I really like this game. We have played it often and it seems to have great re-play value. I recommend it for casual and family game players.

This is a casual game that is fun for everyone - from the strategists to those who just want to have a night of fun. Would recommend this also for someone who is trying to get their feet wet with board games.

It's not a 'serious' game, but a fun multi-player game at about the level of Leaping Lemmings or Discworld. Some oddities - e.g., you can keep buying and betting on horses up until 3/4 of the way thru the race - but nothing that spoils the fun.

This is a very fun game, easy to learn, and several people can play. My wife and I have 4 daughters, so finding something that 6 people can play in 30-45 minutes (and that is reasonably fun for adults and kids over age 10) is sometimes a challenge. Everyone enjoys this one. We try not to encourage gambling in our family, and that was a concern when we first looked at this, but it doesn't feel like a gambling game. It feels like a horse-racing game. You are able to place bets on different horses, but it's not an over-arching theme. And, most of the bets placed are losers, just like in real life, so you can use that as an object lesson, too!

We play with multiple couples in our area and it only took one play through of this game for it to become everyones favorite. There is so much excitement rolling to see which horses move forward and then playing cards to yank them back. Multiple strategies allow for excellent replay.

Great with 4 players, even better with more!

Great while drinking because it doesn't require your full attention.\

Con:
Stickers on the horses.
