JUMP OFF, the board game for Horse-lovers
at HOYS last year, Jump-Off has been selling steadily by mail
order. Strong interest from retailers has lead Stage Coach Games
to make it available to the trade as well.
JUMP OFF is a classic board game contained in a colourful box
that looks eye-catching in a window or on a shelf. It is manufactured
to a high standard; the pieces are all thick card or wood and
it weighs-in at nearly 2kg!
The box contains a colourful board (depicting a show-jumping arena),
a selection of show jumps, horse-shaped player pieces and question
cards with over 1000 equestrian questions.
JUMP OFF is supported by the British Horse Society for learning
the theory of horsemanship.
Players set-out their own show-jumping course which can be different
every game. Using a mixture of luck and skill they race around
the course and the first over the line is the winner. To clear
jumps players have to answer questions and these are graded so
that players of all abilities (even non-horsey ones!) can play
together equally. The six categories range from Novice to Expert
with four levels in between equivalent to the BHS Stages 1 to
JUMP OFF can be played purely for fun or to help with revision
for the BHS Stage exams.
