Event description

At the Races is a unique game designed to get players cheering, placing bets, and training or sabotaging horses with all the excitement you’d find at a horse track! It is quick to learn and fun to play - no experience with real horse racing is required.
You’ll be able to talk strategy with your small team, and then cheer on your horse with the rest of the room as the race is run.

The event starts on a zoom call where the host is waiting for the participants to join. Next is a two-minute video setting the stage and explaining how to play. The game is very simple and every player has a choice of only three actions. However, deciding how and when to take your actions, coordinating them with your teammates, and reacting to what the other teams are doing, affects the outcome of the race and means no two games are ever the same.

After the introduction the host fields any questions and places everyone into small teams. The game is played over a series of six races and the first race is simplified as an introduction to get everyone up to speed. Each race starts with a short overview of the track and conditions, then an action phase for about four minutes when teams strategize together in their breakout rooms, and make their decisions. A live market displayed on everyone’s screen shows constantly changing payouts of the horses as people take their actions. Do you grab a great price early on (but signal your interest in that horse) or do you wait for others to play their hand and dive in at the last minute?

After the action phase, the host brings all the teams back into a shared room to watch the race and cheer together. When the race is over the winning teams are announced and a short period of celebration, taunting, and groans are quickly followed by the next race and it’s back to your breakout rooms to adjust your team strategy and try again.

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?
