When you imagine Razorfrog as a company, what do you imagine? Is it an under-swamp lair, accessible only by submarine or scuba diving equipment? Or maybe you’re thinking more traditionally – an apartment shaped like a giant lily pad, where Max and co. jump around on all fours ribbiting commands at one another, the end of the workday signaled by Kristan, Max, and Scott re-enacting that old Budweiser commercial?

Well, either way, you’re wrong. We cook up your websites in a co-working location in downtown San Francisco called NextSpace. And we love it! It’s bright, there are great snacks, and we love to build relationships with the other individuals and companies that populate the open-plan, orange and exposed brick expanse.

A while ago, we realized that while we knew the basic snack proclivities and preferred schedules of our co-space-workers, we didn’t know them as well as we’d like. So we did what anybody would do. We bought an orange N64 (to match the walls), a good copy of Mario Kart 64, made a signup image with Reggie the Nextspace moose, and invited anyone who wanted to play to compete. Oh, and we made a dope trophy (The Sir Reginald Moose Award of Excellence) to reward whichever player showed the most excellent maneuvers on the tracks.

Sixteen folks were divided into four separate pools, and the tournament was, as they say, off to the races. Scott and Max got into the final 4, because they are very good at Mario Kart, which is partially the reason for why they chose it for a tournament. And Scott won.

Let it be known that this display of frivolity was done after all extant work on websites was complete. And let it be known that while Scott may have won this battle, he will not win the war.

Interested in waging your own tournament? Pick up a new Nintendo Switch and copy of Mario Kart and get started!
