Starting at 8AM PST today, I will be playing in a 25 hour board game marathon to support the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.

There are many touching stories such as, Dylan, who’s heart was only working at half capacity, and had to undergo 4 heart surgeries before he was a year old (http://bit.ly/1f8he4V). Your donation, 100% tax deductible, would help many other children like Dylan and their families .

There will be tons of PC/console gamers out there, so I wanted to make sure to represent the board gaming community. I'll be updating this GeekList with all of the games I play through the day. We'll be live-streaming the event, so watch out for amazing Space Alert games! :-D

Please check out the link for more information about the cause and how to donate. Any amount helps! http://bit.ly/GJW4Oh

Google Hangout:

Thanks so much!
-Hung

Update: I raised a total of $1440. The tentative total for the overall fundraiser was over $3.4M!!!

Games that I'm bringing with me to the event! :-D

4 player game of Taj Mahal with 3 new players. Unfortunately I didn't have a solid path between elephants and palaces and got last place :-(

But still great to get this on the table!

Played on a tacky table, so it made for an interesting set of "flicks.

First time playing the game.

A bit hard to learn about all of the different cards, but an intriguing game.

7 Missions
5 all white missions (3 complete, 2 failures)
2 all yellow (both successful)

The last mission would have been a perfect all yellow if I would have read the Kamikaze card correctly. Instead, we took 6 damage into the white zone and almost all of us got the "Duck" achievement.
