#92: Royal Turf

Alea's re-working of Gibson's Turf Horse Racing by Reiner Knizia bolts up the back stretch into #92. Bet on various horses to win, place or show over several races. Good enough that it's being reprinted soon... go, Caramello!

William Eldard: "Not as well known in the U.S., but a great little Knizia design, which manages to apply an effective wagering mechanic with plastic pieces that have no intrinsic value. There's rarely been a game night in the past 3 years where our group hasn't played it as least once as a filler. It's big with my family as well. There's nothing like watching both teenagers & middle-aged players rooting aloud for their favorite horse: 'C'mon, Earl Grey!'"

David Fair: "Great fun, and has a very lovely 'screw your neighbor' factor."

I completely agree with the analysis. I never fail to have a great time with Royal Turf. Easy to understand and play, the player interactions make this a rollicking fun race.
