This is Numbskull games second Kickstarter campaign and Tom's third game for publication. Many thanks to our previous supporters who made Divided Republic a reality. Though a completely different genre and designer, we strongly believe in Tom's ability to create an engaging game unlike any we have seen.
Each player has two horses, one stallion and one mare. When players breed horses, they breed their mare to other players' stallions, and each player can set a stud fee for how much this costs. Players must decide if they want to breed a new stallion or new mare-- with a new mare, desirable traits will last longer, but with a superior stallion, races are more likely to be won in the immediate future.
Players can bet on each horse to win, place, or show. Money is made both by successful bets and by the player's own horse placing well in races. In addition, the older a player's horse is, the slower it becomes, but the more money it makes if it places well in races.
Each horse has a set of traits, and when a new horse is bred, the most desirable traits are what players strive for. Parent horses that are genetically compatible can offer gene traits superior to unmatched mates. Regardless though, it is in the betting and racing where the traits count. A well balanced and blended set of rules results in fast action right up to the finish line.
The rest is up to you!
Risks and challenges
Artwork and rules are ready to print and available at the Numbskull Games website for previewing. Though there can always be unknown delays, our fulfillment track record speaks for itself. Due to high shipping rates, all International orders add $50 for shipping. Essen pickup in October will be available for European supporters to avoid the extra $50.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
