Gamers for Orcas

We're all (temporarily) spending more time indoors, so what better time could there be for a gaming challenge? Join Gamers for Orcas and the sponsorship money you raise will provide vital funds to protect orcas.

The perfect indoor gaming challenge to help protect orcas!

Whatever games you like to play is fine: just get a pod (virtually) together - you, your family, friends, neighbours, club, society or colleagues - set a date and get sponsored to game for (up to) 24-hours.  Esports, online or computer - any game, any number of players, anywhere!

  • Not into computer or online games?  Don't forget board games, Tabletop, Sci Fi and Fantasy, Card, Dice, Pub, Chess, Chequers, Quidditch, Pokemon, Game of Thrones or anything that is a firm favourite.
  • Feeling traditional?  Why not attempt non-stop Monopoly, Cluedo, Uno or Scrabble?
  • Or change your game – try something new and be a game-changer for orcas! Check out Carcassone; Settlers of Catan; Go; Back to the Future; Jumanji; Battleships; Mahjong; Bridge; Pictionary; Yahtzee; Ticket to Ride; Connect4; Sorry; Jenga......

All the money you raise through doing something you love will make a huge difference to the lives and futures of these amazing creatures, so why not spend your time in lockdown having fun and being sociable with your pod from the comfort of your own home, whilst also gaming for good!

Don't forget to send us photos of your gaming challenge too!
