The Genital Games is a 24-hour gaming event run by the Darkworld Gaming team and hosted at Xtreme Gaming in Colchester in aid of The Robin Cancer Trust. The Robin Cancer Trust are dedicated to spreading awareness about Testicular and Ovarian cancer which is most common is 16 – 35-year-olds. We felt that one way to help them spread awareness was through our passion for gaming. The event has given us a chance to bring together some great people who are just as passionate about the charity as we are to face off as teams over a 24 hour period through a huge list of gaming titles while helping us reach out to people about Germ Cell Cancers.
The response we have had each year has been amazing, with new and returning players signing up to take on the challenge and hopefully have their teams name placed upon the trophy. Not only do the players have the chance to be immortalised upon this but we also offer some great prizes that have been donated from our friends over at 2K Games, EA and Bethesda. We have managed to reach out to a lot of people through this event and also raised a great amount of money to help the charity keep doing the work they do but through it all we always have great fun no matter how zombified the players look by the end.
