Quick Summary
spacerA simple horse racing game from Reiner Knizia, the great German game designer. The game is played with seven colored horses. A card for each horse is drawn to determine starting position and values for die rolls for that horse. Players place blind bets on horses (only you know how much you are betting on each one) and rolling a die to move them. You choose which horse to move, moving a number that matches the symbol on that horse's card. Once all horses are moved, then another round takes place until the race is over. Betters on the top three placing horses get prize money, and those who bet on the last-place horse lose money.
