Pretty much every workplace in Australia will gather around a big screen to stop and watch as three short minutes on the 3rd of November decide the winner of the “race that stops a nation”. Although the Melbourne Cup consists of 10 races run throughout the day, it’s only the 7th race that most people have their eye on. So while you’re waiting to see if your favourite horse or jockey is the big winner on the day, get in the party spirit with some games from Gumtree that will make for a full day of fun. Melbourne Cup games are a great opportunity to connect with your fellow co-workers or if you’ve decided to take the day off, get the family and friends together and play like you did when you were kids.
