Simple and affordable fantasy rugby games for your business

06 Aug 2019

Fantasy rugby pioneers

Not many people know that the co-founders of Stream Interactive, Bruce Timmins and Jim Griffiths, were heavily involved in the development of the first fantasy rugby games to appear on the web. These were amongst the most in-depth and sophisticated games ever designed. Even today they are still unmatched in the salary-capped gaming arena, considered the most difficult fantasy game to master.

Even though these games were incredibly popular, the team running them struggled to keep up as Super Rugby, 6 Nations, International Series, Rugby World Cups and Lions Tours kept expanding. Each game had to be recorded and more than a dozen stats needed to be collected against each player for the duration of the game. What started out as a sideline project soon ballooned to became a behemoth undertaking that was impacting on Stream's 'client work'.

TEAMBUILDER Pick the Score

Unfortunately the call was made to take a sabbatical from advanced gaming, much to the distain of our 50,000+ fans, but something had to give as our clients always come first. With more resources in the future we may get it back up and running again.

Corporate pick the score rugby games

Stream was however, developing (in parallel) a simpler game based around the 'pick the score' model which is very popular in the corporate sector. These games can be re-skinned to suit a company's brand and promoted as their very own fantasy rugby gaming website. Sites have been produced for Philips Lighting, JA Russell, Brancott Estate, Merial, Blackthorn Cider and KEO. 

Today, under the TEAMBUILDER banner, Stream continues to develop fantasy rugby games that are cost effective and fun to play.

Stream Interactive has been at the forefront of fantasy rugby development since 1999. We can create an affordable game for you based around any rugby competition in the world.
