GameBlast20 is here!

It’s finally here!

We’re totally hyped for the GameBlast20 weekend, and you’ve ALREADY raised over £20,000! Massive thanks to Frontier, Vinewood Motors, William Merritt Centre, Aravelle, Eden0032, Jess Barton… just some of the many wonderful people and teams that have given GameBlast20 such a dream start!

Keep in touch with everything @gameblast20 and share your GameBlast pics! We’d love to see them.

The GB20 Twitch action is at bit.ly/GBTwitchTag, and there’ll be a ton of Twitch front page goodness as well - they’ve kindly offered 30 of our GameBlasters slots on their UK front page this year, including members from the United Communities of Runescape who are streaming a wide variety of games, and on Sunday catch WanderingDM, along with famous voices from the Witcher, streaming a live play session of R. Talsorian's Witcher TTRPG.

Auctions!!! Did I mention the auctions? They’re here, and Becky says don’t you dare bid for the Kylie item because she wants it.

Why are we all doing this? There’s a shedload of vid links at http://bit.ly/38KzuD1 that show the impact of the money you’re about to raise. Feel free to grab or link to any of them for breaks in your stream.

The next few days are going to be totally bonkers. Watch out GameBlast stream stalwarts like TeamClocked, Later Levels, the amazing Zeldathon and so many more. Then there are the GB20 partners: Frontier Developments will be kicking off proceedings at noon on Friday, followed later that evening by SEGA Europe at 18:00 GMT. GAME will then pick up the livestream baton for 24 hours at 10:00 GMT on Saturday, backed up by a host of GAME stores running regional fundraisers up and down the country. Challenger Mode will be hosting a charity CS:GO tournament on Sunday, and teams from Blackbaud offices around the world will be joining forces to make this a truly global event.

Thanks to everyone who’s taking part, who’s supported, who’s donated prizes… you’re all legends! All the team here wish you a fantastic GameBlast weekend and once again, THANK YOU!!! You'll be making a life-changing difference to the lives of hundreds of people with disabilities.

See you on the other side!
