Casio Championship Derby 2

We found this gem tucked away in an gift shop on Canal Street in New York City. Casio’s Championship Derby 2 was an exotic horse racing game calculator that unfolds to show its display in the upper panel and game controls and calculator functions in the lower one. Object of the game is simple, simply push the buttons quickly enough to get your horse ahead to win the race. There are obstacles that your horse and jockey must hurdle, and your competition is not all that easy. The sound on this one is quite good, and we love the membrane keys. There’s a little map of the track in the upper right corner indicating where you are in the race. Very sophisticated little calculator game–this is only game with such a design that we’ve ever seen. Have you seen others like the KG-200?
