Update on GiftTRAP's Massive Play Weekend charity fundraiser October 6-8, 2006

A few months ago I wrote about my friend Nick’s company and project called GiftTRAP. It is a board game with many twists. It contains over 600 photos collected from around the world, many of them from Flickr photographers. It is being used to raise money for charity for a non-profit entity called Right to Play. And it is being launched globally on something called Massive Play Weekend where they will attempt to garner a world’s record for largest number of locations playing a board game in the history of the world. Nick embodies Goethe’s quote: “Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men.”

If you are interested in hosting a game and being a volunteer:

  • sign up to be a Massive Play weekend volunteer on the site
  • order a MPW free game board (they ask you to pay the $12 to cover S&H though)
  • Pick a venue (home, coffee shop, bar, office your call)
  • Invite some friends to play anytime on 6th-8th October 2006
  • Play at least once with friends over the Massive Play Weekend
  • Send us an email to confirm your event and include a photo of your event
  • MPW is a fundraiser. So were asking you to use your imagination. Charge people to play, pay for the postage or auction your copy amongst friends

If you donate you will get entered into a draw. The winner will get 5 nights here; www.bigwhiteselect.com including ski passes. Pretty cool!

I highly recommend that people take a look at Nick’s site and consider helping him raise the charity funds and maybe even be part of setting a world record.

Good luck Nick!
