Rich and Henry's top tips for completing a gaming marathon:
- Ensure you promote leading up to the event and make it clear where you will be streaming (loads of my friends didn’t even know what twitch was and didn’t think they’d be able to watch until I explained haha)
Don’t go too heavy on coffee early on
If you’re struggling – have a shower! (Bit of a weird one but me and henry did this about 12 hours in when we were flagging and it helped massively)
Engage lots with anyone that’s watching on the stream – keeps them involved and keeps you awake.
Plan all your meals and snacks and have them ready beforehand.
I’d say finding people to do it with you can help you massively, I think I would have struggled to do it on my own.
Get lots of sleep the night before!
Rich and Henry are going live for a 24 Hour Gaming Marathon from 7pm on Friday 27 November to raise vital funds for Crisis.
Watch the stream on Twitch.
