The Torch Race

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

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 light 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 where players have to challenge other players with a question related to the Olympics
  • 45 Game Changers: Instructions to follow based on Olympic Values and Sports related rules.
  • 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.

The board game is made of sustainable material.

Anyone who wants to have the Torch Race can reach out directly to us. We are happy to distribute it to anyone who wants to learn about the Olympic Games through playing the game, in return, we are fundraising for a local athlete who will be taking part in the Olympic Games.
