The ULTIMATE Amazing Race Game Pack

Host Your Own Amazing Race Game

My husband and I LOVE to travel so when we first watched the reality show The Amazing Race, it quickly became one of our favorites! First, we love seeing all of the different countries and then came the challenges that matched the various cultures and we were hooked. The game has it all: adventure, challenge, and teamwork – the perfect recipe for a great date night. Because of our love for this show, we have put together everything you need to host your very own version of The Amazing Race! The pack includes twelve unique Amazing Race challenges that can work for any type of group gathering and be played in any hometown!

The Amazing Race Challenges

Pulling off the main event (an amazing race) is made possible because of our game challenge printables.  The pack includes twelve ready-to-play unique challenges that should work in just about any town.

Playing the Amazing Race Game

The object of the Amazing Race game is for teams to complete each task from their provided envelopes and then return to the designated location as quickly as possible. The first team back to the pit stop mat wins the game!  

The teams then head out to complete their challenges as quickly as possible. The challenge cards provide all of the information they will need to know to complete the tasks. That is to say, the game can completely run itself. The contestants will have a blast finding locations in addition to complete their challenges and making memories as they work together to complete the tasks. The race is on!

There are so many occasions where you might play this Amazing Race Game. You may just want to play the game as is, but you could also turn it into a full-on themed party with all of the details. So, whatever your occasion and situation, we have the materials for you! 

You can create a fun and festive atmosphere that any Amazing Race fan will appreciate. For example, you could decorate for the occasion with a printable banner, customizable street sign decor, and various food embellishments.

Frequently Asked Questions About The Amazing Race Game Pack:

  • How long does the race take? This depends on several factors. The main factor is how many challenges you include in your race. Obviously, if you do 6 challenges it will be shorter than if you include all 12 challenges. Your location will also affect things. For example, if the nearest hotel is a 30-minute drive, that may lengthen the race significantly. That being said, you may want to plan on at least a good solid hour to complete 5 challenges (or factor in about 12 minutes per challenge).
  • What age group would enjoy The Amazing Race Game? The challenges included are completely family friendly. We believe any age would really love this activity.  It is important to note that each team needs at least one team member old enough to drive so that completing challenges around town is possible. Or, use the editable template challenge card to create all brand new tasks that can be done around the neighborhood without a car.
  • A specific challenge doesn’t work for my area. What do I do? Simply omit that challenge card or use the editable template to make adjustments.
  • Can the Host Play Too? Absolutely! The host may have a slight advantage for having seen the challenges ahead of time but it is nothing that would hinder the game too much. Go for it!
  • How Many People Can Play? There is no minimu or limit to how many people can play, however, the more people, the fiercer the competition.
  • Can the Game Be Played More Than Once? Absolutely! Simply collect all of the challenge cards at the end of the game to save for future use.

Check out what this reader said about the Amazing Race Game:

“I just wanted to let you all know that it was a BLAST! One of the things that made it a lot of fun was that we were able to enjoy time alone with our spouse/date and, on the other hand, time with our friends–the best of both worlds in one date! The Dating Divas have prepared everything for you to host an awesome date for your friends. Since we all have children, we will also have their kids come and play with ours as we host the event. I think the kids will enjoy the night just as much as the adults! PRINT IT, PLAN IT, DO IT, LOVE IT!!!”

and this one:

“We have hosted and played this game 4 different times now with all different types of groups: family, co-workers, as a group date night and with a church youth group. While each group has been different, each experience has been so much fun. We are all still talking about it. The game is a bonding experience for any age level”

  1. Is there a way to edit the items – type on the blank clue cards. Change small things? I would love to do this for my husbands 40th birthday rather than a date night.

  2. This looks fabulous, I was thinking I might be able to tweak it a bit for my birthday party, I have the big 40 coming up.
    Unfortunately I live in Australia some of those clues are not relevant to us…

    1. Opps that didn’t come out right.

      Not unfortunately I live in Australia, because I’m very fortunate to live in Australia.
      I meant Unfortunately, as I live in Australia half the clues aren’t relevant…

    2. What a fun thing to do for a birthday party! Even if the clues don’t exactly fit – there are blank clue cards included in the kit so you can make all of your own clues and still use everything else. Happy Birthday!

  3. Girl, you thought of everything in this date!!! I am so sad my hubby had to go and have stones and ruin all of my wonderful plans, lol! Anyway I love this, this is going to the top of my list! xox

  4. Where is the disclaimer that NIsha just had a baby and that might be the most terrible photo of her in existence?! FUNNEST DATE NIGHT EVER THOUGH! Sarina and her hubby are the bomb for putting this together. And that cute gnome is hanging on my kitchen counter – love it!

  5. I just wanted to let all of the ladies (and men) that read about this date to know that it was a BLAST! If you are worried that the guys may not like it, I can tell you from experience that all of the guys who went on this date LOVED IT! One of the things that made it a lot of fun was that we were able to enjoy time alone with our spouse/date and time with our friends–the best of both worlds in one date! The Dating Divas have prepared everything for you to host an awesome date for your friends. My wife and I are looking forward to hosting this for our friends. Since we all have children, we will also have their kids come and play with ours as we host the event. I think the kids will enjoy the night just as much as the adults! PRINT IT, PLAN IT, DO IT, LOVE IT!!!

    1. Russell – You are so nice! It was a fun night and I agree – EVERYONE had a blast. How fun to incorporate kids into it. That adds a whole new spin. Love it!

  6. This looks fun…it’s our favorite reality show too! But a logistical question: if you are planning and hosting the date, are you note participating? Thanks!

    1. Lauren – when we played, Sarina & her hubby just set things up & didn’t play…. however, you can do it so that siblings, friends, family members, parents, etc are the ones who set it up so all the couples can play.

    2. Correct – Sarina and her hubby didn’t participate this time. You could still play and complete the challenges though. You might have a slight advantage but it would still be fun!

    3. Lauren – It totally depends. I have played this 4 times and 3 of the 4 times I played. Once I preferred to just host it rather than try to play as well. If you wanted to you could still race and just realize that you have an advantage because you have seen the clues before, but it is still a competition to complete the challenges! I would just suggest having everyone meet back at a place that they don’t have to wait for you to be there to open the door!
