ORIGIN: UK Pocketeer

VARIANTS: Horsing Around (US Tomy Pocket Game)

GAMEPLAY: A nice simple horseracing game, ideal for two players. The wheel part works like Fruit Machine, spinning an orange marker behind the scoring holes to create a clever illusion of a light. The players simply take it in turns to move their horses back or forwards according to the number of spaces shown on the wheel until someone wins the required number of laps.

VARIANT: Horsing Around

ORIGIN: US Tomy Pocket Game

DIFFERENCES: Name and graphics. Also, the values on the wheel are different - the US version has no 11, for example, but has a 6 and an extra 4, and has only two minus slots compared to the UK's three (though the total minus-points count is the same on both).
