Boston, MA (November1, 2013) – Blind Sheep Studios and GameFlak are happy to announce their newest partnership with Microsoft for the creation of the first of its kind video-game show – Celebrity Gaming Challenge. Launching this winter, the TV show will feature Ryan Mallet and Rob Gronkowski from the New England Patriots as the celebrity team captains and some of New England’s best gamers as they fight for the title of Celebrity Gaming Champion. The competition will take place using Microsoft’s Xbox One platform and some of the hottest games of 2013 selected randomly the night of the event to truly test competitors.
Ryan Mallets and team “enforcers” will be representing The Miller McNeil Woodruff Foundation; www.imwithmiller.com. Rob Gronkowski and his team will be supporting the Gronk Nation Foundation www.gronknation.com/foundation at the finals on December 11th.
The competition begins with three qualifying rounds at Microsoft retail stores in the New England area. Contestants will compete in an elimination round robin tournament with the final two winners from each location moving on to the final Celebrity Gaming Challenge on December 11 at Royale Nightclub in Boston MA. The preliminary rounds will begin at the Microsoft retail store at the Rockingham Mall in Salem, NH on Dec. 6, with the remaining dates being, Microsoft retail store in Natick MA on Dec. 7, and the final round at Microsoft at The Shops at Prudential Center in Boston on Dec 8, 2013. The preliminary rounds are open to the public and you can register at www.Celebgc.com. In addition to competing in the Celebrity Gaming Challenge final with Ryan Mallet and Rob Gronkowski, competitors will have an opportunity to compete for a new Xbox One prize package. The competition field is limited to 400 participants per location. Space is extremely limited so sign up now.
The Celebrity Gaming Challenge final will feature Ryan Mallet and Rob Gronkowski from the New England Patriots . The celebrity captains will draft their respective team members from the pool of preliminary winners via a NFL style draft. Our Celebrity Team Captains and their respected team members will then go head to head in 5 rounds battling it out not only for pride, but for an opportunity to win for their favorite charities. Once the video game has been randomly selected, the competition will begin and consist of five rounds/five games and each round a team will be given an objective to complete. By reaching each objective the teams will have the opportunity to add to their overall earnings for their respected charities. In situations resulting in a tie, the teams will face off in a tie breaker/bonus round to decide the winning team. At the end of the five games the team with the most earnings will be crowned winner and the charity of their choice will receive a donation of the earnings.
