Gamers for godlessness was a HUGE success.

Not gonna lie…that was brutal.  I don’t drink coffee or soda, so caffeine scarcely ever enters my body.  So after a full night of taking caffeine pills in order to stay awake, I threw up around 6am.  I managed to stay up until almost 9am, but my stomach was not happy.

Jason was a freaking trooper though, as was his lovely wife Jodi (as was every single person who stayed up with us, gave us challenges, and donated).  In the end, it was all worth it.  As Jason wrote before passing out…

We made it 21 hrs and 35 mins before we had to pack it in, and generous viewers donated a total of $1335 which means, after the $300 we’ve allotted to defray our one-time startup costs to get this show on the road, and after Paypal has taken their cut, we’re left with $980.41 to split between Camp Quest and Women In Secularism. But that’s an ugly number, so the widget will remain up for the time being in case any kind souls would like to bump us up to something more reasonable. And if you need incentive, the entire archive of the night is available at my page. That’s plenty of entertainment to merit your further donations.

Wow.  Good job, fun atheist peeps.  Good job.  *hugs*  I’m so grateful to Jason for putting this together, and even more grateful that he allowed me to be a part of it.  We will definitely do it again next year.  :)

    ‘Twas awesome.

    Two regrets:
    1) I couldn’t stay for the whole thing
    2) My video card crashes when I have a video playing in the background and game in the foreground, so I had to close the stream a few times to squeeze in some LoL.

    Awesome times, between the games, JT’s amazing singing, and James reading of Henry V. Thanks for doing it.

    The last thing I remember was NES Open, and then I woke up on the couch. I guess I drank too much :). Watch out for that caffeine, though. It may be legal, but it can be some serious shit, especially if you’re sensitive to it and/or prone to depression.

    It was a lot of fun popping into the chat and hanging out for awhile. Great job to all involved. I can’t pull all-nighters so big ups to those who can stick it out.
