  • Equestrians against Normalcy game - anyone played it?

    This has been around for a few years and I have been intrigued, but I have yet to take the plunge and buy the deck - probably mostly because I don't have a chance to gather up my horse friends for a game!

    (Traffic in this area and living far apart - and the barn I've been boarding at for 7 years is almost exclusively a breeding/layup/retiree operation, so no "group of boarders" to get together )

    I'm an Eventer and I think the eventing deck would be hysterical, but the "regular" deck looks pretty damn funny too. How many people are required to play?

    Reviews? (I suspect they will be raves, LOL.)

      I only have the Whole Herd Deck, and have played a few times. You need at least 3 players, probably 4-6 is best.

      As someone mentioned, it can be tough to gather everyone at the same time, but once you do, it is great fun. I would like to get another deck or two - especially the dressage one.

        I have a bunch of different decks and they are mixed in with my Cards Against Humanity game since my friends aren't really horsey people. It entertains me to watch them try to figure out how to play the horse cards. 3 players really isn't any fun imo, you can definitely tell who is playing what card. We usually get a group of 4-8. More than that and it is like herding cats trying to get everyone focused and paying attention to the game.

                    Thanks MissAriel I didn’t want to post a link to it. Honestly that is why I have t posted anything about EAN on here. I didn’t want to have people think I was advertising.

                          Now that's an idea.

                            Thanks to everyone for the input!

                            I have a friend who has a bunch of the cards; she's willing to lend them to me if I have a horsey get-together (and would certainly be invited to it, but she lives over an hour away - close to my barn, but not my house :/)

                            The tricky part is getting enough people together since only one of my horse friends lives less than 30-40 minutes away, most of them are at least an hour away and it's asking a lot for them to schlepp here - traffic is just AWFUL near me (7 days a week.)

                            If I could find someplace to meet up equidistant from us, that would be great...
