PopCap hosted a gaming marathon, which garnered more than $92 thousand for Water, a non-profit organization that brings clean water to developing nations. Two women played Solitaire Blitz, PopCap’s new social game, for 30 hours.
Laura Rich from Cardiff, Wales and Kathleen Henkel from Oakland, New Jersey, played the game at SEA LIFE London Aquarium and Roger Smith Hotel in Manhattan respectively. PopCap pledged $5,000 for each player giving a great head start to the charity marathon. The women were also attempting to break a world record for longest videogame marathon playing a card game, for playing more than 24 hours consecutively, which they obviously achieved.
