The idea behind the team event
A spark of competition brings the team to life! This is also the case for the online Christmas party. The Reindeer Race is ideal as a 30 to 60 minute online game, or for an entertaining start or an atmosphere booster in between.
The colleagues come up against each other. It is their task to win presents in the virtual Christmas world by training their own champions and sabotaging the other reindeer – with a bit of luck, the right reindeer will be in the lead in the following race.
The whole thing takes place in a 3D world, lovingly decorated with details such as huge snowflakes and fairy lights around the racing track. This is something different to a Christmas party!
At the beginning, a two minute video explains the rules of Reindeer Race. They are simple. The participants take part in multiple rounds and each prepare for the spectacle by: choosing an appropriate nutrition package with which they can train the reindeer and/or sabotage. Those with good tactics – and who keep an eye on what the others are doing – carry away the victory and receive many virtual presents from Santa Claus.
The course of events
The online Reindeer Race consists of six rounds. Each round begins with a short overview over each race track. Then, the participants consider their strategy: shall we support one of our three champions and raise their chances of winning? Or shall we rather sabotage one of the other reindeer and hinder the colleagues’ chances of winning? What will the other participants do? The decisions have to be made within a time limit before the race begins and it is revealed who bet on the right reindeer. After that, the next racing round begins with a new chance to win. Whoever wins the most over the six rounds carries away the whole victory.
Reindeer Race online is a browser based web game. You don’t need an app or to install an additional programme. An up-to-date browser (preferably Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge) is enough. You can participate through the browser on your smartphone, or on a PC or laptop. The communication can take place through your normal conference software.
