Nintendo DS fans plan Children in Need charity game-in

Play games, raise cash

SANS - Survey on application security programs

Jumping into baked bean-filled baths or men wearing dresses into the office are tried and tested ways of raising cash for the annual BBC-led charity telethon Children in Need. However, one group of Nintendo DS fanatics are using their love of the handheld console to raise some money for the cause.

The group calls itself DS:London and it regularly meets in pubs across the capital to, well, drink beer and play wireless DS games with total strangers. However, on 17 November it’s creating a pay-per-game Nintendo DS tournament to raise money for Children in Need.

Joe Lee, a representative from DS:London, told Register Hardware that the group is aiming to attract at least 100 gamers. There are four game tournaments taking place, incorporating titles such as Mario Kart, and participants are asked to donate £2 (€3/$4) for each tournament, or £5 (€7/$10) to enter all four.

Lee added that each tournament will be shown on a projector screen, with spectators asked to donate £1 (€2/$3) to watch the entire tourney. Prizes are also on offer too.

The event is being organised on Facebook here, but more information about DS:London can be found on the group’s website.
