The real-life Summer Games might be over, but it’s only just begun in the world of Rec Room. The first-ever Reclympics is allowing players to compete in various games, highlighting custom-created content, including a massive coliseum, and the old standby games of Rec Room.

How to compete in or watch the Reclympics

Go to the corkboard in your dorm room or look at Rooms on your watch — select the ^Reclympics room. Here, you can go to a souvenir shop to buy user-created cosmetics, look at the standings and medal count, or visit any of the eight Region clubs participating in the event.

Only a limited number of players can compete in the official tournament, but everyone can play the games themselves, watch the event, and even nab a Reclympics t-shirt for their character just by visiting ^Reclympics. If you want to simply play the games with friends, go to the coliseum in ^Reclympics, go to any of the stations, and hit the Practice button for the event you want to try.
