Super Sheep Race (or SSR in worms terminology) is a Super Sheep-based racing-style scheme where players must complete a series of challenges on a specially-designed map, each challenge requiring players to launch a super sheep from a designated launch platform and fly it to a target, usually the launch platform for the next challenge. The player to reach and complete the final challenge on the map wins the game.

Worms
A single worm per team

Players begin by placing their one worm at the launch platform for the first challenge. The platforms are usually designed to confine the worms and prevent them falling, while still allowing them to launch their super sheep via a small hole. Players then take it in turns to try and hit the target for that challenge with their super sheep. If they succeed, they can then use their Teleport to go to the launch platform for the next challenge. Each challenge is numbered throughout the map, and typically get more and more challenging towards the end.

Worms are given infinite health so that they cannot die to the blasts from the super sheep.

The first player to reach and complete the last challenge wins the game.

The scheme is not currently supported by HostingBuddy.

Rules

  • Complete the challenges in order - Players must start with the first challenge and complete each challenge before moving to the next.
  • Release super sheep only from the marked launch platform - Players must stay on or move to the launch platform before releasing a super sheep.
