Late for the Sky

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Late for the Sky
Model: Horse-opoly
Category: Gifts/Books/Videos

Purchase: I got this game as a birthday gift from my sister. I've seen it before in tack stores and it generally sells for between $25 - $30 Cdn.

Likes: It's a cute game, appropriate for almost any age (recommended is ages 8 to adult). We had some friends over, who brought their children, and wound up playing the game for nearly 5 hours! Interestingly enough, one of the children - who spent much of the time rolling around on the floor and playing with our cats, then making decisions without really knowing what was happening - won the game over everyone else! I swore that next time I play, I'll try rolling around on the floor, too, between turns. Instead of the traditional Monopoly game with houses on almost every block, each square has different horse breeds. The cards are Horse Play & Horse Sense, and the property (horse) deeds have horse facts about each specific breed in the game.

Dislikes: Nothing.. it's a good game, though the company that made Horse-opoly is not the same company that made Monopoly.

Quality: Typical game set-up.. comes in a box with the game board, player pieces, cards and other little trinkets (dice, bales of straw and barns instead of houses and garages or whatever). Colourful pictures with neat horses on the box. It appeals to the young'uns, but the more mature people like it too.

Summary: A good game.. I'd get it as a gift for someone else.
