Get involved this World Gaming Day

Whether you’re tearing up the tracks in Mario Kart or settling in for an evening strategizing over a game of Risk, World Gaming Day is your chance to raise awareness for Deafblind UK whilst gaming.

World Gaming Day takes place on the 22nd October and is similar to a coffee morning – but the focus is all on the games!

To take part, all you need to do is host a gaming event and invite your family and friends to join in exchange for a donation to Deafblind UK. You don’t have to be into video games to get involved; the day is all about getting people together and have some fun playing games like cluedo, quizzes and even snap!

Here are some ideas to help you get started:

  • Dig the board games out of the cupboard and host a game morning – think Monopoly, Risk or Carcassonne!
  • Challenge your friends at your favourite console games over some snacks – find out who’s the best Mario Kart racer or who’s got the best moves on Super Smash Bros!
  • Why not host a quiz evening to test your family and friend’s general (or very specific!) knowledge?

If you’d like to host a World Gaming Day event to raise money for Deafblind UK, you can donate here or contact us at [email protected] to find out more.
