Challenges

The team here for Mass Effect Marathon is dedicated to doing almost anything (within reason) to help raise money for Child’s Play Charity. We don’t only play Mass Effect, but we will also sing, dance and just embarrass ourselves for your entertainment. If it means that you’ll donate to such a wonderful cause, then we are willing to perform great challenges of hilarity for you live on our Webcast.

To give you an idea about what we are prepared to do, here is an À La Carte Menu of challenges that you can choose from. The process is simple. Tell us what you would like us to do, either in Chat, Facebook, Twitter, or Email and how much you are willing to donate to Child’s Play Charity. If you are willing to donate enough and we accept your offer, all we ask is you donate to Child’s Play using the Donation widget on the right hand side of the page, and once we confirm you have donated we’ll perform for you!

Slot Machine of Insanity

During Mass Effect Marathon, for every $250 we raise, we will spin the Slot Machine. Each reel of the slot machine has a different purpose. First reel determines whom must participate, second reel determines what we will actually do, and third reel gives us a random modifier that has to be incorporated. Once it is spun, our team will figure out a challenge utilizing all of the determined factors Use the table below at home to figure out how it all works!

  • Once Mass Effect Marathon begins, for every $250 we raise, we must spin the Slot Machine.
  • If and when we raise $10,000 total, the amount for a spin will be lowered to $100.
