How To Play Fantasy Drag Race

How do fantasy leagues for RuPaul’s Drag Race work?

RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 15 premieres on January 6th, but since there are two premieres, fantasy gaming won’t begin until Episode 3 on January 20th.

Drag Race Fantasy Leagues Are Starting Soon!

It’s your favorite time of the year – RuPaul’s Drag Race time. It’s finally time to see who gets to slay the runway and who is told to “sashay away.” 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 Drag Race (without needing to be able to death drop or do the splits). Bracketology offers three different Fantasy Drag Race game types: from picking who is going to move on each week, to choosing a different team of queens weekly that score (or lose) points based off doing/saying Drag Race-related things. This challenge is on.

SIGN UP

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 Drag Race to play along. Are you ready to join a family of reality TV fans?

JOIN A COMMUNITY

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! 

JOIN A LEAGUE

Once you’re in a community, create or join the community’s Drag Race league. Within the league, you can play up to 3 game types at the same time. There are three 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.

Fantasy League Game Types

Bracketology offers three different game types for fantasy Drag Race. Each league can play in up to 3 game types per season (but you’ll want to play Advanced + Week to Week or Confidence Pool, since the two latter games are similar). Learn more about these game types below!
