Choose a player for your game board token from the Starting line.Roll the die on the right side to start your movements through the race. As you move your token you will come upon Pi Facts to read and motion you to make your next movement OR a Pi Trivia question to answer. FLAGs: When you land on a flag, you will answer the question and get a LETTER to add to your tracker (see link to the right if needed). Make sure you hit ALL the flags in the race to get the letters IN ORDER to spell the name of our athlete until you reach the finish line! If you roll and it takes you passed a flag, you MUST stop and answer the question before moving on! Roll again to continue!

First event? Open the link below so you can track the letters of the athlete's name
