Rudolph und co. – the story behind it
We all know the story: Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer dreams about flying over the clouds with Father Christmas. Sounds friendly. But those who think that it is harmonious in reindeer herds are mistaken: because the others also want what Rudolph wants!
And so it begins, a race in six rounds: which team can train the quickest reindeer and win the grace of Father Christmas? It is not only about speed, but also the best strategy – and also keeping an eye on the other teams and sabotaging them.
The course of events
The wintery team event takes place at a place of your choice. The BITOU presenter comes to you, equipped with a screen and a beamer.
A two minute video explains the rules of the Reindeer Race at the beginning. Then it begins: everyone opens the game in a browser on their own phone. The teams take it in turn to decide on one of three actions: to train a reindeer, to sabotage or to make bets.
Then the race begins. After each of the six racing rounds, the teams discuss the strategy they would like to continue with.
The Reindeer Race is played in a 3D world, lovingly decorated with details such as falling snowflakes and fairy lights around the racing track. This is a different kind of Christmas party! It is ideal to have a Christmassy ambiance on site, with delicious food and drinks.
Online Reindeer Race is a browser-based web game. You do not need an app to install it. Each player can play the game on their phone.
The Reindeer Race is also available as an online team event – or as a hybrid team event, where only small groups are physically with each other. And if you like the thought of competition, but would rather try it out at a different time of year, take a look at our BITOU team event Horse Race.
