Why Are you doing this?:

I am doing this event because I really believe in what Special effect do.  Games have been an important part of my life and I think everyone should be able to experience games regardless off if they are handicapped or not and Special effect allow people with handicaps enjoy what I can do with ease every day.


Why Starcraft 2:

We have chosen to play Starcraft 2 through this 48 hour period because it is one of our favourite games.  I (Dan) Have been playing Starcraft since I was about 12 now and Starcraft 2 since it came out (recently really got into it) I got into it due to its style both game play and artistically ever since I saw the 1st zerg structures in the starcraft1 demo I was hooked. 

What if the Starcraft 2 servers are down during the event?:

 If for some unknown reason the servers are down during our event (preventing us from playing) we will still continue by playing other games throughout our time frame these games could range from Gears of War, DOTA 2, Awesomenauts, League of Legends, the Oddworld games etc etc we might even take requests.  But this is only if the servers are down :)

Will there be any viewer involvement?:

Yes at certain intervals we will gladly play with viewers in the various game modes within the game  including arcade games which are free to everyone even if they don’t own starcraft 2 allowing any viewer to play :)


Will you do requests for Donations?:

Yes we will play a certain race or game mode for certain donations among other things e.g. if people want to see for example a Carrier rush for a donation I would gladly do that (well I might be annoyed lol) for a donation to the charity :).


Will you be doing anything special through the event?:

We will be doing set goals (tbd) and taking request as long as they are within  reason (please be nice as we have to play for 48hours lol)

Thanks in advance :)


Dan & Hig
