TOTOPOLY. VINTAGE 1950's BOARD GAME WITH METAL HORSES. WADDINGTONS
About this deal
In the first section, each player has a set of horses, which start and end this phase in one of two stables.
Of the brand waddingtons - The theme horse racing as well as an age level : 17 years up - A countryregion of manufacture qualified as 'united kingdom' , a game type : 'board' and a material established as cardboard.The horses names in Totopoly are quite fun actually too – they were the real horse names that ran in The Lincolnshire Handicap between the years 1926-37. Originally published in 1938 by Waddingtons, the game is based on a double-sided board, with each side representing a different half of the game. The race, which was first run at Lincoln Racecourse in 1853, is now (with occasional exceptions) run at Doncaster Racecourse.
This meant that the effect of money accrued in the first phase of this version of the game was fairly minor, and in particular the elaborate rules for betting, together with the final race prize money, were irrelevant. Interestingly, and this is the first time I had seen this - the game was played on a double-sided board, each side represented a different half of the game.More recent editions of the game have an alteration to the rules, allowing the players to make the winner the one who has most money at the end of the race. The horses are moved around a loop, and, depending on which squares they land on, the player may collect “advantage” and “disadvantage” cards, which become important in the game’s second phase.
