How do we describe a game when people do everything very fast to win?

Is it known as a speed game, speed play or some other word?

This source says “a contest of speed, as in running, riding, driving, or sailing”. Does it mean we can use “race” only for these types of contests or it’s also allowed for another contests. For example: there’s a game where students should make up a sentence as fast as they can to win, is this game a race?

    A race is any "contest of speed." Do you mean something else? Jul 24, 2019 at 23:23

A race is usually used to describe when there is some distance to be covered, usually in the fastest time.

Doing things fast without covering a specified distance is more like a contest, competition or a challenge.
