Horse Fever, the first release from new publisher Cranio Creations, is set in the 1930s, with players stepping into the shoes of rich bettors who will do whatever it takes -- fixing races, bribing bookmakers, buying stables, using sleeping pills -- to get the horse they back across the finish line and, most important of all, make money.
The game includes three different game modes: "Board Game" for strategy gamers, "Family Game" for younger and more casual players, and "Party Game," which can accomodate almost any number of players. I don't know anything about the rules, but I do know that Horse Fever includes an original soundtrack by composer Federico Albanese to get you in the mood for dirty tricks and double-crossing.

A very different take on horse racing. The emphasis is on fixing the race. What would be considered cheating and law breaking activities at a horse park is within the rules of Horse Fever, actually these activities are required to win. The box states 5 players but we almost always play with 6. The key to Horse Fever being such a fun game is that the "race" is short. With the race track being short, the game does not stall as many racing games tend to do. The Horse Fever game box contains: strategy, bidding, bluffing, luck, as well as good quality components. The loudest game at Game Night is Horse Fever.
