Description:

This is the first of several number race games played on a set of "racetracks." In this beginner's game, each player has five racetracks, and puts a "racehorse" on the zero (0) end of each track. Each turn, a player rolls 2D6 (two 6-sided dice) and uses the numbers on the dice to move one or two horses along the track. The object of the game is to get all five horses to twelve (12).

Number Race 0 to 12 describes three game variations.
