Getting ready to play Horse Fever for the very first time tonight and I'd like to clear one thing up before trying to explain the game to my game group.

The rules state that, in the first round of betting, that a player must place a minumum bet or lose 2 victory points. Let's say a player has 5 VP so his minumum bet is 500 danari. The player, however, only has 400 danari. He loses 2 VPs. What happens then? Once he has paid the 2 VP penalty, can he (A ) bet the 400 danari he DOES have, (B) bet 300+ danari (since his total VP's were reduced to 3 after paying the penalty) or (C) not bet at all?

Same situation here (first play ahead). I understand it this way: If you have 4 VP and 200D you loose 2VP. Now u have equal amount of VP and Denari and you can bet this amount.

Good question. I think you are forced to bet after you spent 2 VP. If you still have not enough money, repeat it till you have enough. But this is just guessing.
