THE GAME - Barcelona World Race 2014 - 2015 is over, thank you all for participating. Stay tuned for more news.


THE GAME 2014-15 is here!

Whether you took part in the first test race or not, we're giving you the opportunity to train with THE GAME ahead of the start of the round the world race.

The Barcelona-Espartel-Barcelona race was a great success and thanks to the feedback from thousands of betaplayers we were able to identify and carry out improvements which are now in place for players to enjoy. We're back with a gruelling second test race for you...

THE SOUTHERN OCEAN CHALLENGE: from Hobart (Tasmania) to Cape Horn.
Start: 6th November at 12:00 Barcelona time (UTC+1).


Hold on tight to your mobiles, tablets or computers because it will be tough!

If you already took part in the first test race then there's no need to re-register. We're sure you're hungry for more and you can't wait to see how THE GAME has improved. If you didn't play then don't miss out. There are 10,000 players with hundreds of training miles under their belts, so you need to catch up if you want to be ready for the start of the Barcelona World Race on the 31st of December! Time and spots on the entry list are running out! If you sign up now you will also secure your place on the starting line on the 31st of December; there is no need to sign up again after the test race. If you sail a great round the world race you may even win one of seven Renault Z.E. electric vehicles up for grabs.

One last thing, just in case it wasn't already clear: playing THE GAME is FREE. It won't cost you a cent thanks to the Barcelona World Race main sponsors: Renault, Johnson & Johnson and Estrella Damm. All you have to do is to answer a brief questionnaire when you sign up for THE GAME 2014-15.

What's new?

If you played THE GAME 2010-11, then you'll be pleased to know that the good stuff's still there and the less good stuff is history and there are some juicy new bits too.

As you know, THE GAME is a product of the close collaboration between the Fundació Navegació Oceànica Barcelona (FNOB) and the Interactive Technologies Group (GTI) at the Pompeu Fabra University, as they set out to design and develop a game in its entirety in Barcelona, Spain.

Thanks to your feedback from the previous edition, the developers have been working really hard to meet your demands.

The new version of THE GAME features:

  • A new clearer graphic interface, modernised and with easier handling
  • Improved 3D graphics for all of the platforms
  • Mobile apps for Iphone and Android with push notifications (reefing times, etc.)
  • Improvements to reefs and polars
  • Improved autopilots
  • Increased connectivity and promotion on social networks
  • Prizes for achievements
  • Virtual journalist: you report on the race
  • The possibility to create groups of players: measure yourself up against your friends
  • As well as numerous other improvements that you can see for yourself!

This is THE GAME. Go for it!
