A DIY Olympic leaderboard

If you're having trouble coming up with ideas, here are a few to get you started.

  1. Trivia Contests: Organize Olympic-themed trivia nights, where questions range from historical facts, records, and past winners to fun facts about the host cities. Update the leaderboard in real time as participants answer correctly.

  2. Fantasy Olympic Leagues: Similar to fantasy sports, participants pick athletes or teams they believe will perform well during the Olympics. Points are awarded based on the actual performance of these athletes or teams.

  3. Predictions Game: Before an event starts, have participants predict medal winners. Points are awarded for correct predictions, with bonus points for correctly predicting gold, silver, and bronze medalists.

  4. Cultural Exploration Challenge: Assign points for participants who learn and share facts about the countries participating in the Olympics, including language, cuisine, and cultural practices. This can be an educational and fun way to celebrate the global nature of the games.

  5. Olympic Bingo: Create bingo cards with outcomes that could happen during the games (e.g., a world record being broken, a specific country winning a medal in a sport). Track who hits bingo first or most often.

  6. Art and Craft Competitions: For a more creative take, host art or craft competitions where participants create Olympic-themed works. These can be judged online, and points can be awarded based on creativity, theme adherence, and execution.

  7. Cook-off Challenge: Participants prepare dishes from different countries participating in the Olympics. Points can be awarded for authenticity, creativity, and presentation, with bonus points if the dish is from a country that wins a medal on the day the dish is presented.

  8. Sportsmanship Awards: Beyond just winning games or contests, this category can reward participants for demonstrating great sportsmanship, enthusiasm, or Olympic spirit during the duration of the games.

Using an online leaderboard to track these activities not only adds a competitive edge but also helps in keeping participants engaged and connected, whether they're in the same location or scattered around the globe.
