There is also a DIY horse racing game that looks like a lot of fun and that can be easily modified for other sporting events

I have one more idea Luke
Why don’t you distribute playing cards to those who want them
There are many games they can play with them or you can play a hand of cards with them when you do your visits
They can pretend they are two different people and play for each of them
They could play a game like war
