We at GamingReel have decided to use our powers of being stunningly average at games and test our might over 24 hours of pure video games joy!
There will be tears, laughter, general ruckus’ and of course we will strive to #ShowTheLength throughout this special event.
All in aid of Gameblast17, we are asking our fellow gamers out there to donate and help us raise some money for SpecialEffect.
SpecialEffect is a charity that aims to change people’s lives through video games. An awesome charity doing some incredible work bringing the joy you can only find within video games in some pretty special ways. For more on the charity please read here.
We are sure you agree that this is an excellent charity to support!
To do that, we need your support, and GR has assembled our team of Scott, Stuart and Liam to entertain, delight and conquer with our 24 video games marathon.
And to add to the fun, we have some special donation milestones lined up, so the more you donate, the more we do!
