How to Play Fantasy Amazing Race

How do fantasy leagues for The Amazing Race work?

Amazing Race Fantasy Leagues Are Starting Soon!

It’s your favorite time of the year – Amazing Race time. It’s finally time to see who makes it to the Pit Stops first and who gets sent packing early. If you’re like us, you’ve thought to yourself, “Wow; it would be so fun to have a game to play along with the show.”

Well, it’s here! You can play your own version of The Amazing Race from your couch. Bracketology offers four different Fantasy Amazing Race game types: from creating a March Madness-type bracket after the first episode, to picking which teams are going to survive elimination each leg, to choosing a different roster of teams weekly that score (or lose) points based off doing/saying Amazing Race-related things. This challenge is on.


If you’re new to Bracketology, you can create an account here, or simply just sign-in if you are a veteran. Then navigate to the gaming portion of the site (our web app) by clicking Play in the top navigation bar where you can use the show dropdown or click on Amazing Race to play along. Are you ready to join a family of reality TV fans?


First step is joining a community. Whether it is with a group of friends or the Official Bracketology Community, the purpose here is so you can play reality TV fantasy games with the same people across multiple shows. Rather than having to join new leagues and have a cluttered dashboard, you can stay within the same community year-over-year and keep your fantasy gaming competitive! 


Once you’re in a community, create or join the community’s Amazing Race league. Within the league, you can play up to 3 game types at the same time. There are four different game types to choose from, and you can read more about each game type below or click on the game type header for a more in-depth look.
