This is my SECOND favorite race game (right behind Circus Maximus). It is a crying shame that it is out of print.

Good fun. Throw that bucket of nails at your opponent, or maybe an angry cat instead.

Finally managed to get this out on the table opposite Formula De. I think that we had way more fun than the other group and by the end we were really getting into the spirit of bribing each other by the end.

Fun and silly game of no holds barred chariot racing. Be very cautious of overbidding, or you can find yourself winning races and losing the game.

A great little betting game disguised as a horse race. Lots of thematic flavor. It really deserves the full-up treatment with commercially feasible parts. One of the absolutel best Cheapass games.

Good Chariot racing game. Can run a little long, depending on what series of races you choose. It's a fun kind of long, though (bout an hour and a half or so), particularly if the players get into the game.

Flinging cats and orangatauns into opposing chariots? What's not to like?

Except that the best strategy is to roll really well...

It cost me five quid, and I finally got to play it. It's a light hearted game, which needs just a little something to make it more fun. The improvements seemed to cheap to buy just at quick sale prices, and one or two of the pre-race rules took a while to understand. Wouldn't play much more than the basic 3 race game, but fun enough for the price.

Might have too much luck involved to make the bidding out of power cards worth the time it takes. Greatly favors experiences players who know which power cards are "worth the price."

My friends love this game because it's mean & they can stomp me; I wish there were a way to bet on chariots other than your own, so that you could have people trying to throw the race.

I think you can buy this as a PDF from rpgnow.

Honestly, describing the game theme is more fun than playing, but there is that one card where you get to throw an orangutan into another chariot.

A very chaotic racing game, where your prize pool is based on the money you spent buying cards for the race.

The actual racing in this game is one of the coolest mechanics I've seen. Your last die roll carries over to your current turn for a sense of inertia. The bidding for cards and drivers tend to bog the game down.

This game is a riot. It takes a special group to play, since the betting, trading and auctioning that takes place will depend a lot on your friends.

This is a game to plan your night around, though it may only take an hour and a half.

The race itself is pretty much all luck. The game is truly played in the auctions, by paying as little as possible for everything you get.
