Enjoy a "day at the races" when you play this devious family board game. Just as in a real race meeting, players race their horses around the board to win at all costs. Be devious, bet on your own horse or someone else's, but don't tell anyone who you've bet on. For 2 to 6 players or teams and ages 12 to adult.
Amazon.co.uk ReviewWelcome 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, GBP20,000 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

My wife has locked herself in the bathroom and won't come out. The banging has stopped, but apparently this is exactly what her mother has done her entire life and is part of the desire for a self-fulfilling prophecy where by which everything my wife does ends in failure. Today that involved euthanasing my wife's Horse on the final straight.
My mother-in-law has drunk half a bottle of gin and having reduced the wife to tears moved on to her husband, who's attempts to foil my father's horse with his ghost horse, were apparently impotent, futile, flaccid, limp... you get the drift, we can assume there have been issues and today they boiled up and were revealed... We thought that was as awkward could get, but no...
My own mother has never liked my mother-in-law and has until now been incredibly diplomatic about this fact, saving her comments for those quiet moments when they can cause no offence. That ended about 75 minutes ago after the Start Again card was played... comments about rewriting history until it suited your tilted world view and your insular self righteousness and how you can always spot an only child from how they can never bear not to get their own way... Needless to say this swept away and sense of polite friendship she had managed foster and both of them are now trying to turn each other to stone with nothing but an icy glare...
Fortunately our daughter wasn't there to see this, having declared we never let her do anything (horse fell at one of the jumps), she hated us all, wished she'd been adopted, and we don't love her as much as her brother... before hitting her brother and storming out.Read more ›
Highly recommended, but not for bad losers who take things personally!!
If you don't hate your friends and family before, you will soon.
