Cockroach Racing

"Will you dare to face a Madagascar cockroach?!"

Game info

Consider the exotic show and party spirit for your guests. We offer to hold this race in the venue where your guests will be watching and participating at the real competition of Madagascar racing cockroaches. This game can accommodate up to 100 participants at once.

Players are invited to meet the racing cockroaches, while the assistants hand out prop money to participants, which they can use to buy a Madagascar cockroach and become a proud owner for the game. All 6 cockroaches are auctioned. Other participants can place bids for their favourite animal.

Then goes the race with a start-finish, announcement of the winners, cash payments to the winners and an auction to buy prizes after all the laps of the race. There may be 3-4 of them during the event.

The duration of the fun runs varies from 1 to 3 hours, depending on the event concept and the number of participants.

  • Ideal for a wide range of age groups – from children to seniors.
  • The finish of the race is unpredictable, making every step of the cockroaches very emotional for players and spectators.
  • This is a great opportunity to learn more about these amazing animals.
  • The duration of the game can be adjusted.
  • At the start of the game, prop money is distributed to the participants.
  • Six cockroaches are auctioned off for the winning bidders to race with. The numbered cockroaches are waiting for their pair in a special cassette.
  • The six competitors who have purchased the cockroaches receive ‘racing sticks’ and take their places on either side of the table.
  • The other players bet different amounts of money in the ‘game box’ on the cockroach and its owner who they think will finish first.
  • The race director announces the start of the race by raising the board blocking the starting line.
  • The owner of each cockroach, by tapping the table surface with a stick, urges his cockroach to move towards the finish line.
  • The first cockroach to cross the race course and enter the finishing cassette wins.
  • The judge records the first three cockroaches to run.
  • Participants who bet on the number one cockroach shall collect their winnings from the cashier.
