Clifford vs. Wild Blossom
This is a full race of two horses as an example. Normally you will use up to 12 horses for more action and excitement, but for an easy "How to play" we will just focus on two of them.
- It's a calm, but HOT day here in Charlestown (US). The DIRT track with 100 fields length looks good and all horses are already in their boxes, waiting for the final start signal.
- And here we go! The bell is ringing!
- The horses break out of their boxes and are on the track. So let's begin the work. First of all, we want to know, how good the horses reacted to this start...
Break out (B)
- We start with Clifford, roll both d6 dices and look at the Break out table. We got a (3+2) 5 result and this means, our horse reacted a little bit delayed, so we have -1 as table result. We note that in our scorecard in column B.
- The same goes with Wild Blossom. Here we roll (4+2) 6, we look at the table again and we can see, that this is a neutral start (result 0). Again we note the zero in the scorecard.
- Now we are out of the boxes and on the track, so now it's time to take a look at the RUN table. Let's start again with Clifford, we roll both d6 dices with (5+3) 8 and look at the line result. The answer is: we can move 11 fields forward. But we have to adjust it now with our break out value before, in this case -1, so we write 10 in the first field.
- Now Wild Blossom. We roll both dices and we got a (4+5) 9, again we look at the RUN table, which tells us, that we can move 10 fields forward. We have a neutral break out, so nothing is added or subtracted from the result.
- Clifford and Blossom are heading down the lane on the same height (10:10)!
Run, baby, run!
- Again we repeat the process. Clifford stretches his body, we roll both dices and we ... in work
