Having played Escalado many years ago it was purchased for a work social event. Unfortunately the product would not work despite numerous efforts from members of staff, with the quality of the horses I suspect being a major factor, too light

Good points:
Not many.
Bad points:
Horses go in th eopposite direction to the way they should and rarely go in a straight line. Horses not heavy enough to move properly across the course. Very disappointed. Not a patch on the original version which I had as a young child

Score 1.0/10
Good points:
Good idea but it did not work in practice.
Bad points:
Not possible to just set up and play because it did not fit any suitable surface/table. Tried adapting table top with pieces of wood to get the tension right but it did not work well enough to play the game.
Very disappointing particularly compared to the old game years ago.

Mike, Cheshunt

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
This is a good old fashioned game that can be played by many people at the same time. Ideal at parties and get-togethers. Easy to set up and no complicated rules to follow, just turn the handle and watch the horses race down the course. Great for all ages and everyone gets a go at turning the handle. It is a game of luck so everyone has an equal chance of winning. We all agreed it was a very enjoyable game but could see that it would be great fun after a few drinks. A real 'ice-breaker' at parties.
Bad points:
Waddington's Escalado comes complete with everything except one important item, a table. This is an essential requirement for playing the game. If you are thinking of buying this for someone and they have not got a reasonable size table to set it up on, forget it, you cannot play it on the floor. Also, you can get through an awful lot of betting slips in a night. Perhaps making and printing your own from a computer or using a child's blackboard to display the odds may be an idea.
