Note that "race" here means intelligent species or subspecies -- not skin colors, cultures, or factions, [[JustForFun/IThoughtItMeant and certainly not]] {{racing game}}s. Sometimes a "race" is less a biological distinct species, and more of a mutation or modification (such as werewolves, zombies, cyborgs, vampires), but the important part here is whether they're mechanically distinct or not. If they have separate stats, separate starting zones and quests, or otherwise work differently then they count; if the difference is purely cosmetic then they don't.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ChroniclesOfElyria'' will allow the player to select from twelve [[HumanSubspecies Tribes]]: the Neran, Hrothi, Brudvir, Kypiq, Janoa, Dras, The Waerd, To'resk, Mydarri, Owem, Erishé, and Yoru, with the caveat that the last four will not be playable at launch and will have to be discovered by the other eight races once deep-sea sailing has been discovered.

* ''SpaceEmpires'' offers around a dozen (or more) races as standard options, each with their [[PlanetOfHats hat]]. It's fairly simple to create and fine-tune your own, particularly to anything prior to the fifth game.

* ''StarFleetBattles'' features a bunch of distinct fleets, including, in the basic edition, ships for TheFederation, the Klingons, the Romulans[[labelnote:*]]Who have the distinction of having '''three''' completely distinct Tournament ships, whereas almost all the other races have just one, to reflect the fact that there they had/have three completely different fleets[[/labelnote]], the Kzinti, the Tholians, and Orion Pirates; expansions include Andorians, Lyrans, Hydrans, [=WYNs=], and the ISC. And all that is for the "Alpha Sector" setting. There are also "Omega Sector" (20 new factions), "Magellanic Cloud" (5 new factions) and "the Early Years" (5 new factions) settings.
* ''TabletopGame/TwilightImperium'' started out with six "great races" (including humans) scrambling to rebuild the long extinct Lazax Imperium they were once part of; expansions for the game's 1st edition added four more races that had risen to a similar level of power in the interim. The current 3rd edition included all ten races from the get-go, then a new expansion was published which introduced ''four'' brand-new races, for a total of fourteen; probably the largest number of playable races in a tabletop strategy game, with the possible exception of ''StarFleetBattles''.
