24 Hour Board Gaming anyone? April 2018

Post  Aneurin on Tue 30 Jan 2018, 16:11

I'm running a 24 hour long gaming event as part of Inspiration4Lifes 24 Hour Inspire event https://inspirationforlife.co.uk/24hr-inspire-2017/.

The event aims to raise money for Rotherham Hospice and Impact Living. It's directed by a charity in memory of Tim Richardson who was a Physics lecturer at the University but died of Cancer in 2013. In 2011, before he was ill, he did a solo 24 hour lecture marathon in aid of Children in Need. It was an amazing achievement – he pushed himself to his limits, and his students and colleagues backed him all the way, keeping the lecture theatre full even in the small hours.

The I4L charity repeats this 24hour lecture-thon... but this year have asked if we can run a satellite board gaming event - I said yes.

So anyone game for helping out? It will be from 5pm on Thursday 19th April until 5pm on Friday 20th April. You don't need to commit to the full 24 hours - it will be a turn up and play/help out style thing in the Hick's building. But if you want to help please let me know and a time you could make. The event will cost £10 (all for charity) and that gets you into the board game room - any of the lectures in the 24 hour period and a free cup of tea and piece of cake.

I need a snappy title for the event...

The 24 board games in 24 hours challenge
The 24Hr Board games Marathon

Open to suggestions.

The plan is to get the boards over from the Uni Arms to play on. So Twilight Imperium 4 anyone?

I'd be happy to help for any amount of time. I have an office in the Hicks building (and all-time access), so if we need to temporarily store anything I do have some room.

I have some wargames that would do, and a couple that would need a bit longer too.
