As we gear up for the third Sick Kids Save Point in October, you may have noticed our new column in the Edinburgh Evening News. In this we hope to provide some new release tips and highlight what our local games developers are up to, as well as raise awareness for our charity gaming marathon, of course!
If there is anything you’d like to ask or make us aware of, feel free to contact us via our Facebook page or on twitter.
Meanwhile, a search on Youtube produces some interesting videos from last year. Here’s a selection:

In an incredible feat of organisation, a group known as ‘Less than six’ (David, Robert, Kim and Bob) have already drawn up a comprehensive plan for their Sick Kids Save Point marathon. Impressively this group of brave adventurers will be Rocking out with Rock Band, high-speed waggling with Super Smash Bros on the Wii and playing some table top rpgs such as Dungeons and Dragons. But perhaps the most impressive feat of all in their plan is a game known mysteriously as ‘1000 Blank White cards’ – could this be the hardest marathon challenge yet? Surely nothing could be more sleep inducing than a card game involving no stimulation whatsoever!
In all seriousness though, these folks deserve all the support we can give them, especially because they’ve an integrated forfeit scheme which will inevitably result in them donating a lot out of their own pockets on top of the sleep deprivation.
