The Reindeer Games is a sports tournament which happens before Christmas and features in the first Robbie the Reindeer film Hooves Of Fire. It takes place in The North Pole Stadium and appears to be the reindeer version of the Olympic Games as at the start of the games a reindeer is seen carring a torch like the Olympic torch. The most important event in the tournament is The Steeplechase in which the reindeer race each other. It is sponsored by HAY, the official snack food of the Reindeer Games.

Hooves of FireEdit

A billboard advertising The Reindeer Games is seen at the start of the film. An poster is also seen on the back of the bus Robbie takes to go to Coldchester.

Prancer is later seen watching an advert for the games on Reindeer Lodge's television.

In order to get back on The Sleigh Team, Robbie (after being trained by Old Jingle) takes part in the event The Steeplechase where he competes against Blitzen.

After being kissed by Donner, Robbie takes part in the other events and ends up breaking every record.
