To adapt to the current laws of lockdown and self-isolation, BucketRace has produced a set of competitive games that can be played at home.
Players need to tune into our live video stream on Youtube, Facebook, or Zoom and come up with a winning team name. We will then reveal the lists, go over the rules, a few Q&A's and get everyone to submit their practice tasks.
Teams will have 60 minutes to complete as many tasks as they can using items they can find within their own homes. We love creativity, so we're open to imaginative interpretations of how the tasks and challenges can be completed. Teams must submit all their tasks submissions via Google Form. Any tasks submitted after the 90 minutes have passed will not be counted.
RULES Tasks and challenges must adhere to the submission format to be counted
Each submission should include the whole team; however, one member can be excluded if they’re taking the photo/video
Completing enough tasks and special challenges earn you bonus points
Tasks must be submitted before the end of BucketRace to be counted
Any teams caught cheating will be disqualified (using photos and videos created before the game)
Teams with the most points at the end of BucketRace wins
WHAT YOU NEED All you need is a smartphone, tablet or laptop, and a Facebook account. We recommend having 2 smart devices to play.
SCORING Each task carries a specific amount of points based on its difficulty, location and BucketRace classification (e.g. home or power-up). The home tasks score the least; however, completing enough of them unlocks a hefty bonus. Power-up tasks score more points, but they don’t offer any bonus incentive. So choose wisely!
EXAMPLES OF TASKS Home tasks: Build the tallest tower of cards | Create a domino effect | Design the best sofa fort
We also have fully bespoke events, allowing us to tailor our race's around families, birthdays and celebrations.
We have a large array of extended services including, trophies, t-shirts, jumpers, framed experience photos, as well as a video compilation of your experience.
Our Children's parties are usually themed around your children's hobbies and interests.

With our higher end packages, we can also include bespoke prizes for the Children, with extra special prizes for the birthday girl/boy. For example, a replica wand, and a variety of Harry Potter Funko Pop Dolls.
Our children BucketRace's typically follow shorter routes and include additional games such as, 'Find the Green Lion', using GPS tracking technology.
For Races in the U.K. we usually meet in a public space, prearranged space or restaurant, so you can relax and socialise as everyone arrives. We then hand out your personalised task lists, do a brief introduction, go through the rules and task submission and then send you on your way. Points all calculated in real time, so once the final team has arrived back, we go into our 'Round Down' showcasing the best photos/videos of the day! The winners are then announced and prizes are handed out to the winning team!
