TOTOPOLY BY JOHN WADDINGTON
Invented by Messrs Lee and Palmer, there are various versions of Totopoly with horses ranging from cardboard horses in wooden stands, flat painted metal horses on circular stands and 3-d painted metal horses. This version has the cardboard horse version - probably a wartime issue with the metal horses appearing later. Complete and in good condition
The idea was that racehorses are leased by players and trained by them for the race. Leasing at auction, temporary ownership of racing stables is undertaken. When all the horses and business have been sold, the training of the horses commences and trainer's and vetinary reports have to be obtained etc. etc. Some horses will make more progress than others and hence win.
