Product Description

Amazon.co.uk Review

Welcome to The Really Nasty Horse Racing Game--the game designed to stimulate your worst instincts and get you to use cunning and deviousness to your best advantage.

The game comes complete with all pieces needed to play--horses and jockeys, lane cards, Really Nasty cards, a riderless horse to create more havoc and the usual dice, pencil and money. The object of the game is to win the most money at the race meeting and this can be done in one of two ways. Firstly, by getting your horse placed first, second or third in the race and secondly, by placing bets on winning horses.

So, how does the game go? Each player gets a number of Really Nasty cards, £20,000 cash and of course, the betting slip. The game lasts for a race meeting of six races. Each player gets six horses, one for each race. The horses are graded 1 to 6--1 being the best horse and 6 being the worst horse. Before racing starts each owner has to decide which race each horse will run. There are other matters too, such as working out the betting odds, and lots of shady dealings will likely ensue.

The elected bookmaker controls the game--lane placings are drawn before each race, and the horse that draws the inside lane starts. Movement is decided by a throw of the dice--one length forward for one, two lengths for two and so on. There are rules that control the manner of racing as well, such as changing lanes, cornering and blocking, plus the special Early Pace, Quicken Up and Finish Well sections that give extra momentum for your horse. There is also a set of mischief cards to help you create havoc with the other horses and riders in the race.

This game really is brilliant--it lets you bow to your worst instincts without any apologies. Great fun for get togethers. --Ben King

This game arrived amongst the other Christmas parcels and at first we thought "horse racing, fun?".
4 days and about 20+ playing hours later I'd recommend it to anyone.
It really encourages the evil streak we all possess to jump to the forefront.
There is nothing more satisfying than hemming in an opponent, watching the horses line up at the jump because everyone is scared to land on the hedge, playing one of your nasty cards and then watching your 50:1 outsider romp home to victory.
Being an outrageous risk taker there were many games I finished broke or with minimal cash, but there was the one where I won £10 million :D
Even the games where I was broke were fun, because I still got to cause havok on the track.
Be warned though if you are a bad loser this deffintely is NOT the game for you...
It is probably best suited to adults to fully appreciate the game, and alcohol really just adds to the experience!
I don't think it is going to get as much floor time as Jenga, Monopoly or Scrabble in the long term, but I think it will always be one of the "pull it out the cupboard for a quick shot and rediscover the joys" games. More of a play it every few months, than every week, type game.

This is an adult game which lives up to its name. A wickedly nasty streak gives a player a distinct advantage in this mixture of snide betting and devious racing tactics.
The game defninitely works best with at least 4, preferably the full 6 players as well as an adequate supply of wine & snacks as it can take quite a while to complete the full race meeting.
Choose your opponents wisely - preferably those who won't bear a grudge as this game inevitably results in some serious rows as you call a stewards' enquiry just as your opponent thinks he's won the top prize. And remove all forks unless you want one in the back of your hand!
Excellent fun.

My brother gave me this game as a Christmas present (2004) and we have played it more than any other board game in the subsequent year. OK, so it is fairly complex to pick it up the first time (I would recommend remaining relatively sober until you've got to grips with it). But spending a bit of time to learn the rules at the beginning is definitely worth it, as the game-play is so rewarding. We've had players aged from 12 to 60+ enjoying it. Even the most mild-mannered ones end up using their cunning to sabotage the outcome!! MUCH less boring than Monopoly (which seems to drag on) every player has a stake in every move, so your interest is maintained throughout.

This game brings the fun of horse racing into the home! Each player chooses a horse and races around the board for the prize money! 'Really nasty cards' can be used to disqualify that horse about to take 1st prize, ensure the horse you have bet on comes first (even if it means dashing your hopes of winning) and even getting a Steward's Enquiry! Be warned though - alliances will be formed and broken and sore losers will not be able for this game at all! By the way, this game gets a 4 star rating in educational value as it teaches people how to lose gracefully (if played often enough), a skill we could all use!

This is a great game. Don't be put off by the rules, have a hands on learning session, it's much much better. It's a great game as it got people who didn't usually play games, playing. You had to stop trying to make your piece win and think about how to help other players win which was quite hard for me to grasp to begin with. It's excellent fun and shockingly mean, great to play in team or alone. It teaches maths, strategy, teamwork and of course how to put on a good face when you lose millions of pounds.

Ever wanted to cheat the bookies? This game lets you without breaking the law.
I first played this game a couple of years back, and before playing it instantly thought I'd hate it as I hate horse racing. FEAR NOT. It's simple to play and can be a very close fought thing. You don't need to know about horse racing or like it, infact, You don't even need a degree in maths to work out your winnings (although you might choose to use a calculator). It is a particularly nasty game at times, and yet is always fun. Don't be afraid to throw the race, in most cases it's actually best to bet on the opposition!!! In a couple of years it'll be a bit boring but with the amount of fun you'll get out of it, it's well worth it.
REMEMBER TO SET THE VIDEO FOR THE CHRISTMAS FILMS, EVEN IF YOU INTEND TO WATCH THEM, CHANCES ARE YOU'LL BE PLAYING THIS GAME INSTEAD.

If you know the original version of this game, this is a poor edition. Only 1 dice and pencil for all the players instead of 1 each, a smaller playing board that incorporates the bookmakers board that was separate. But worst of all the horses are now 2D pieces of plastic instead of the models there use to be. Its the same game, which is tremendous fun, I just think this is VERY bad value for money.

Our family got this last christmas and have played it so much since then. The rules do need a good read through, but it only took once and then it was easy. We got plenty of practice from the six races in each game and for some reason i always win! :)
Intense action and the really nasty cards add a hilarious twist to the game. Definitely worth buying if you like board games.
