The Big Three in race games that capture the excitement and every race fan should own them. The visual excitement can't be captured any better than these three when it comes to racing and that is all part of the racing excitement for me. Nice to have the three best race games have totally different themes.

Highlights:

1) Captures the excitment of horse racing better than any other.
2) Simulates a real horse race from a jockey's perspective
3) Beautiful production with very nice pewter horse & jockey's.
4) Two different track expansions available.
5) Great decision and positioning choices to be made.
6) No fake paper money.

Cons:

1) Very expensive to purchase in the U.S.. This is where the real money comes in to play to get your hands on it.
2) May be time consuming to play the recommended three races.

Looking forward to brother Giro when it's released. This will be a two player game that somehow incorporates a card system.

Highlights:

1) Great production with modular tiles and great graphics.
2) Best simulation of a bicycle race.
3) No dice or cards for movement.
4) Challenging with some nice decision making.
5) Peloton is a fun addition to the game.
6) The Tour which would span over a few races sounds very interesting with additional rules and objectives.
7) Duration will all depend on the length of the course you make.
8) The best modular tiles in a race game.

Cons:

1) Some say the bikes are a bit small and fiddly. They don't bother me.
2) Very likely that nobody breaks away from the peloton for the first couple terrain tiles.
