Nice review, Joe. This was my favorite game at Origins. I'm glad I got to play it with you and Monica there. I've played it 10 times in 2 weeks and still haven't won, but it's always a blast.

Very nice review, Joe. Looks very cool! Always nice to see a good game with an accessible theme that can accommodate up to 8 players. I'll have to check this one out!

I've played this game twice now, both times with a group of six. It's a great party game, and even though it is still turn based, we found ourselves cheering for the horses as "DOWN the stretch they come!!!"

Not a particularly deep strategic game because of the amount of luck involved, both in the cards and the dice, but sometimes one does not feel like playing a "deep" game. And as Joe mentions, it's a bit slower with a large group, but I've had great fun both times I've played and never felt like I was just waiting for my turn.

Too funny! I thought I was the only ASL and horse racing game fan from Michigan. Well almost, I moved. Usually if I see Joe do a video, it is ASL related, so nice bridge of commonality here. I am considering picking up a copy of this game, but I spent my game budget on 3rd Edition Doomed Battalions and Action Packs. Soon..........

Did you call it the Movement Phase? I am assuming at least one of the horse cards allows the owner to engage his horse in CC with another (of course snakes creates a hero jockey).

Kidding aside, game looks like a lot of fun, but to be like one of the 'letter of the rule' critic type guys, you paid off the winning owner at odds of six for one, not six to one.

Roll low Joe!
