Trick Race is a variation of Rope Race, but with steps to be done. These steps are Rope tricks that need to be done when appear the name of the trick on some part of the map. On many maps there are highlighted lines that indicate where the rope must be attached to start and end the trick. If the rope was not attached on the correct lines, the trick will not be considered valid. The winner will be the first player to do all the tricks and arrive at the finish of the race.

Variations

Time-trial

Time-trial trick race uses the same concept and scheme from TTRR, but for trick race maps (usually smaller ones).

After a research done via messages on TUS (thanks for the information to Fluffy, Nullum, DarkOne and Stratovarius), it was concluded that the author of Trick Race is Stratovarius with his map Stratospecial, which was created in 2001 as a special Rope Race map, and then over the time the scheme would become known as Trick Race.

A notable Trick Race contributor is Fluffy, whose maps are probably the most known and played in WormNET, due to the replays which were created specially for them (teaching how to do all the tricks). Trick Race is probably what it is today due to the efforts of this player and the help of other contributors.
