A great game for gambling addicts as it emulates horse races pretty darn well. Tense until the very end, you will be betting money on horses with a high adrenaline rush unlike from anything you have experienced before. I will try camel up and compare the two in the future.
8/10

The gathered group grew by one so I went on search of options.

Jason offered this one, so we loaded the barriers and watched #10 gain an enormous lead in the race, about half lap, before stopping and having the box seat for the others horses that galloped past.

The last game of the convention for me was this light horse racing romp from Chris Handy. Dice were rolled, plastic horses were moved, and many horse-related puns were made as cards were played. A nice way to end a fantastic weekend at Geekway to the West!

Week One Stats

Weight: 152 lbs
BMI: 22.53


Exercise during the prior week: Ran 5 times. Finally getting my running muscles back. Bodyweight workouts 2 times (would like to do more reps with each workout).



I've been trying to lose weight for the past two weeks but it keeps going up. Snap. I don't think it's because I'm building muscle, either. ninja I might need to go on just signed up for Weight Watchers (counting 'points' certainly works; you have to give them that). My "6% weight loss goal" is just a shade over 9 lbs. That would be pretty good. I'd like to do that in 5 weeks, so I'm ready for my race.

Here we go!

Reserve: $20
BIN: $25

condition notes: Box cover has one split corner (not fully split, but about 80% split). The horses came with 2 sets of stickers -- one set was applied, and some of the stickers tend to "unstick" and need to be pushed back on from time to time. The extra, second set of stickers is still unused and in the box. The game is in very good condition otherwise.

Start time: 12:15am
End time: 1:30am


It was only midnight, but everybody was tired and angry, so we knew we only had one more game in us. So, in sympatico with Camel Up, eight players (Andy, Tim, Nyck, Darin, Alan, Jerry, Lynette, and Kory) played Long Shot on Table One.


The race was dominated almost from the start by Nyck's Six-Gun, who looked like Secretariat at the Belmont for almost all of the race, despite all the Jockey Itch and Whoah! cards the rest of us kept playing on him. However, Nyck never got many bets down, and most of those on his own horse, so his entire race equity was based on just what he got when Six-Gun won.

Tim was basically the only person not to place a bet on Six-Gun; when you bet on somebody else's horse you usually are just laying off action, narrowing but not bridging the gap between your payout and his. Instead, Tim counter-bet on his own horse (No. 3), although most of that came from a random roll on one of the "roll and bet on that horse" cards. Three's Company actually started out pretty fast, but then faded down the stretch so badly that Tim was actually able to cash in the $5 bonus for having three horses on his space by tying with them for last place. Meanwhile, Lynette's No. 1 horse had raced around the inside and finished in second, and Alan's Slow Jenn looked good to show.


But then Andy's Hangin' Ten made a move on the outside - almost immediately after Andy had sold him back to the bank, and Hangin' Ten and Slow Jenn were tied for third with just one space left to go.

...and that's when Tim played what is potentially the most overpowered card of the game, the one that lets you move your horse forward to the nearest space that has two or more horses. That happened to be that very same penultimate space that Nos. 10 and 4 were battling in, and Three's Company shot forward like he had strapped on a jet pack to join them there. When Andy, to Tim's left, rolled a 3 on the Horse die, and nobody had any reroll tokens left, Three's Company had made an unlikely comeback for third place.

Tim had made some money selling his watch and cashing granny's social security check during the game; more importantly, he had some extra bets on Lynette's Wonder Bred and a big bet on his own horse. When the counting was done, it was determined that Nyck and Tim had tied with $225, while Lynette was just behind them with $220. Thus, it proves that it is just as good to be really really lucky once as it is to be consistently lucky throughout the game. Darin sold his Eight's Enough back early but still gained $165, while Andy also scored $150 while finishing horseless. Jerry could never get his horse going and wound up with $125, while Alan and Kory rounded out the bettors with $95 and $70, respectively.
