Have some memories of family playing this way back with 2 piles of pennies etc. Caused great excitement. Anyone ever played it?

Used to play it a lot at family gatherings (pre-TV).

As with so much, Google has all you want to know about it, and there is a good description here of how to play it.

Never heard of the Newmarket game but we had the horse racing equivalent of Monopoly.

Used to play it a lot when I was a kid. We always used smarties or jelly tots instead of money.
