    Comments about HORSE RACING GAME:

    Love that it came in a timely manner and everything was packaged perfect. Item is just as
    described and you can tell that they take pride in what they do. Would like to have had something to keep the game in (EX: box or bag as the dice etc came in) But that can be an easy fix.

              We played this game with the whole family from 6 to 50+ and we all had a great time. My 6 year old granddaughter won the first game and for once didn't need help after the initial instructions. This game will be a favorite for many years. Thank you so much.

                    Comments about HORSE RACING GAME:

                    This version of the horserace game is by far the best one! It is beautifully crafted and worth the extra money. It does need to be handled with a little bit of care to keep it in great shape. That leads me to my one and only wish for this product. I wish that it came with some sort of protective case and an easy way to keep the whole game together, but it does not. You have to figure out how to store (and haul) the board around safely. The horses and dice and cards can go in the pouch that is included, but the board is exposed and has no protection. It is also large and not an "easy" shape to throw in a plastic bin without it becoming way too bulky. Otherwise, great purchase!

                          The game board itself is well made and should last a long time. I can't say the same for the plastic horses. Some of the holes were too tight and when you tried to move your game piece the horse became separated from the metal spike. I ended up putting pieces of tape (numbered) and wrapping it around a toothpick and used those for gamepieces. Very disappointed in that.

                              This is a fun game for family or friends. You can play for chips, but coins makes it more exciting. Perfect for a derby party. Graphics are nice on the game and love the horse game pieces. My only cons are that it is a little pricey...for that price it would have been nice to receive some type of carrying case because we do take it with us to friends homes and clubs.

                              This handmade board game is like spending a day at the races, but you get to be the jockey! Would you love to see this design gallop into our assortment?

                              Old school, but that's what makes it cool! I like that it's made here, too. Kids need to get away from electronic devices.

                              I'm always looking for a game to play with my granchildren. I think they will love the idea of racing horses ...easy to play is also a great feature.

                              Very nice, and American made. I used to have a game just like this, but it "disappeared" a long time ago, so I would love to have another one.

                              I'm not a fan of promoting horse racing as "fun." Fun for humans perhaps, not so much for real horses (like Barbaro). The game is fine, it just needs a different theme.

                              I just don't like board games. I'm in the minority there tho. As far as originality it is good. I'm sure other people would love it. Like I said, I just don't play games much.

                              Love anything that will help us "unplug" for a bit! Nice quality piece, as well -

                              Seems like a versatile game, for both the family or for friends. bonus points for it being made in the USA.

                              My brother has something similar, but not as grand, as a child. I'd love to get him one.
