The Torch Race

2018 - The Torch Race is a board game I created with Tony Tarraf through the IOC Young Leaders program. The project's aim is to promote Olympism, Olympic Education and the Olympic Games through play. The project was entirely created by us.

We came up with all the cards which were later on verified by the International Olympic Committee and I did all the branding and Illustrations for the game.

The concept of the game is based on the Torch relay which starts in Greece and go all over the world to finally reach the host country of the Olympic Games. The winner of the game will be the first to lit the cauldron which is located in the center of the spiral. Along the way the players will face different challenges:

  • 45 Challenge A friend cards: A kind of trivia
  • 45 Game Changers: Instructions to follow
  • 18 Action cards: Physical Activity Challenges (Optional)
  • Doping Compartments: The first stop the player will have to wait twice his turn, the second stop, he is banned for life so he has to return to the start position.
