Product Description

Product Description

Enjoy a day at the races with the fiendishly devious Really Nasty Horse Racing Game. But watch out. Family loyalties may soon fly out of the window as even your own grandmother turns against you! Great for 2-6 players, the aim of The Really Nasty Horse Racing Game is to win as much money as possible from a series of race meetings. Each player becomes the owner of their very own race horse--ok, it`s only plastic but you`ll soon get into it--and enters it into each event. Roll the dice to move your horse down the track and use the game cards to scupper your opponents. With these cards you can force their nags to fall at the first, pull up or unset their jockey. Of course, others can turn on you too. In fact, you never know where the next bit of sneaky in-race sabotage will come from. Players win money for the success of their horse and before each race there is also an opportunity to visit Generous George the bookie and place a secret bet on any of the race`s runners and riders. The player with the most money at the end of the series of race meetings in the winner.With the average game taking about 1 hour and 30 minutes, The Really Nasty Horse Racing Game is fantastic fun for all the family and soon becomes an event in its own right. Just don`t take it personally when you`re nobbled by your nan!

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.

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.

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!

Verified Purchase
I bought this game about 4 months ago when looking for a new and different board game. Having read the reviews initially I was impressed that pretty much everyone thought this game was worth playing.

Finally last night me and my wife invited her parents round for dinner and we are known for having a few drinks and playing a few games of cards or other board games. This was the chance I had been waiting for.....

(I would suggest not being too drunk before learnimng to play)

Setting up of the game is fairly straight forward and I would def reccomend familiarising yourself with what and how the "Really Nasty Cards" work so you know when and how to play them.

As it was our first time we read the instructions as we went along (so this takes a little more time) but after we had established how the game works in principle you will pick it up very quickly.

the game effective is a race meting over 6 races, prize money differs for placing 1st 2nd and 3rd, you are allowed to know which races are worth the most money so you can determine your "Stable entry horse" (you have a horse rating from 1-6, 1 being your best horse all the way down to your worst horse 6. (this is purely for setting the bettings odd when given that races starting lane number.

The object is simple to finish the game with teh most amount of money which can be earned in 1 of 2 ways. 1) Finsh 1st, 2nd or 3rd in a race to win the prize money. 2) bet on either your own horse or an opponents horse to win the race. (odds are worked out before the race so you can decide which horse you want to bet on, it's simply worked out by the stable entry and the starting lane.
