Meet more than 50 horses, each fully illustrated in color on jumbo playing cards. Each game also includes four horse playing pieces, 42 adventure cards, a game board and game booklet with rules and information about horses.
What's Inside: 55 full-color horse cards, 4 horse playing pieces, 42 adventure cards, game board and die, booklet (includes rules, information about horses, and a reading list)
Join the herd for 3 wild adventures. In each adventure, you will learn all about these beautiful animals while you play:
1. Mustang Adventure: You and your friends play mustangs that have just escaped from a ranch. To survive in the wild, you must gather a herd of mares and foals. Watch out for predators, drought, human mustangers, and other hazards.
2. Rancher's Roundup: Now you change points of view. You are ranchers, and your prized horses have just broken free. You all agree on a friendly contest to see who can round up horses by brand and make it to Green River Valley first.
3. Rancher's Revenge: Your friendly contest turns into a game of knowledge and strategy as you round up horses by their color families (roan, gray, and so on) and markings (stocking, blaze, and so on.)
Plus: Rules for 3 simple solitaire games are included! You were born in the wild to generations of mustangs. Ranchers captured you once... but they never tamed you. Soon, you broke free to begin your own herd, a herd that multiplied and swelled until the sounds of pounding hooves thundered through Green River Valley...
