My gaming group completed our 24-hour Game Changers gaming marathon in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support this morning. It almost broke us, but we're all still speaking and we all still want to play board games! We had 27 plays, of 21 different board games, and the current amount raised for Macmillan (with more to come) is £783.00! An extraordinary day, with a wonderful bunch of friends.

The messing up of rules wasn't TOO bad, but the last game was played a LOT slower than the earlier ones. Lol.

The one that caused the most hilarity was Jamaica - for some reason the last dozen or so dice rolls were things like 1-1, 1-2, etc. We weren't getting anywhere!
