Warthog Race Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Show off your Ã¢â‚¬Å“Halo road skillsÃ¢â‚¬Â by maneuvering pedal-powered go-carts and radio-controlled cars through a Ã¢â‚¬ËœWarthogÃ¢â‚¬Â race obstacle course.
Halo Trivia contest Ã¢â‚¬â€œ How well do you know the history and facts surrounding the Halo campaign? Test your knowledge in fun trivia contests that will weed out casual Halo gamers and show everyone who the hard-core Halo fans are.
