The Big Day!

On Saturday, 30th March, we were lucky enough to witness our very own Danilo (known as Thinking Critically DND on Twitch) smash his third year of "Game On."

Game On is a 12+ hour gaming marathon packed with forfeits and challenges for every money milestone raised. It is a yearly event that raises money and awareness for Naomi House & Jacksplace. This incredible charity improves the lives of children and young people facing life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses. Some of their services include respite care, end-of-life care, bereavement support, emergency respite, and family support.

Danilo's commitment to raising money for this fantastic cause was truly admirable. Beginning at 11 am, he started playing his two chosen games: 'Alone in the Dark'—set in 1920s Louisiana and challenging players to escape a haunted mansion—and 'Helldivers'—where players need to coordinate their actions during chaotic combat to complete objectives and avoid friendly fire casualties.

There was no delay in the donations beginning to flow in, it was clear from the offset that this stream would be a highly popular one.


The First Few Hours…

Every spin on the forfeit/challenge wheel resulted from a donation of £20 or higher. Thinking critically, DND was a great sport, and he gladly dressed up in items from a box of various costumes, ate delicious spoonfuls of baby food mixed with different hot sauces, and played his games with 'upside down' glasses on. We witnessed the much-anticipated appearance of a fan-favourite challenge, where he skilfully applied various makeup products, including lipstick, eyeshadow, and blusher, that added to his look! And, of course, the "dirty shots" also made a comeback. This year's menu was a cocktail of Worcester, soy sauce and fish juice- yum!

Within 30 minutes, the first milestone, £100, had been hit. Fortunately for the audience, but unfortunately for Danilo, it was time for him to tuck into a raw onion! He made a good effort, but after a few bites, the tears started flowing! Luckily, he had more gameplay on Alone in the Dark and Helldivers to distract him.

By the time Thinking Critically DND had been streaming for 3 hours, the next milestone of £250 had been reached! This means it was time for the return of the leg wax. Even though he mentioned the sting the wax strips left a few times, he was a fan of how smooth he was after the challenge!

On Friday, March 24th, we had the pleasure of witnessing one of our own, the remarkable Danilo (also known as Thinking Critically DND), go above and beyond to make a real difference in the lives of others. He participated in an unimaginable 12-hour charity stream called "Game On," which aimed to raise funds for Naomi House - an incredible organisation supporting children and young people with life-limiting conditions.

Danilo's commitment and passion for the cause were truly inspiring, as he devoted the entirety of the stream to playing Resident Evil 4 Remastered - a game that holds a special place in his heart and the hearts of his loyal viewers. Starting bright and early at 10 am, the stream quickly gained tremendous momentum, and the donations began pouring in.

First Hours In...

Donations of 20 pounds or above triggered a spin on the wheel where a series of forfeits/ challenges would occur. We saw Thinking critically DND covering himself in makeup, taking "dirty shorts", including a lovely concoction of fish juice, bbq sauce and soy sauce. He managed to down it all in one! He wore fancy dress, played while spinning, and dealt with reverse controls. As well as spinning the wheel, as soon as a money milestone was hit, another challenge came his way. 2 hours in, we hit the 250 mark, which meant a pie to the face happened, which managed to smudge all of the beautiful makeup Danilo had put on his face.
