At the Virtual Races
November 27, 2020
And they’re off! When the race is over, the winning teams are announced. A short period of celebration, taunting, and groans is quickly followed by the next race where it’s back to your breakout rooms to adjust your team strategy and try again. Reindeer Racing coming soon!
A horse-racing experience that gets your team talking together
Virtual Horse & New Reindeer Racing
Get ready for the ultimate remote event.
At the Races starts with an exciting video that sets the stage and explains how to play. The game is very simple and every player has a choice of only three actions – bet, train, or sabotage. However, deciding how and when to take your actions affects the outcome of the race and means no two games are ever the same.
After teams come up with a strategy, your virtual host brings all the teams back into the main zoom room to watch the race and cheer together. When the race is over, the winning teams are announced. A short period of celebration, taunting, and groans is quickly followed by the next race where it’s back to your breakout rooms to adjust your team strategy and try again.
Using this knowledge, teams move into breakout rooms to strategize together and construct their plan of action. As people take their actions, a live market displayed on everyone’s screen shows constant changing payouts of the horses, and updates of each horse’s speed, power, and training – along with its chance of winning that race.
Players quickly start cheering, placing bets, training, or sabotaging horses! Do you grab a great price early-on, signaling your interest in that horse? Or do you wait for others to play their hand and dive in at the last minute?
At the Races is quick to learn and fun to play. While everyone plays individually and chooses their own actions, the game consistently proves that teams that plan and coordinate their actions together are the most successful – and who doesn’t like to win?
“Playing the game was a great way to reconnect with my team. I felt like we were in the same room!”
