Game-A-Thon Extended

More Time to Play, Give, and Win!

This week: Four updates for the Game-A-Thon:

  • Deadline Extension
  • Direct links for the event app from PiF Squared
  • Challenges
  • Prizes!

One week just isn’t enough time to play. Our Game-A-Thon partner, PiF Squared (PiF^2 for short), agreed to let us play longer! Now, we can all create, compete, and give until midnight on Friday, Nov. 20, which will lead us right into our official Scouting for Food pick-up weekend.

Event App
This Game-A-Thon is happening on one app, created by PiF^2.

The PiF^2 app is the central location for all of the Game-A-Thon games, leaderboards, event updates, silly dance challenges, and more. Anyone with an app-based device — Scouts, Scouters, friends, and family — are encouraged to use the app to play along. They will also find a donation portal in the app, for donating to support the Food Bank of South Jersey.

Did someone say silly dance challenge? Have you heard of the Floss Dance? Your Scouts have! Scouts can challenge each other — or even their leaders — to beat their scores in any of the games available on the PiF^2 app; the one with the lower score does the Floss Dance!

The Support Challenge: If every Scout and Scouter in Garden State Council secured a $1 donation from a friend or family member, we could give thousands to help feed our hungry neighbors this Thanksgiving. Donations can be made in the PiF^2 event app, or on our Game-A-Thon event dashboard.

The game Threshold Runner, available through the PiF^2 app for both platforms, is easy to play, but difficult to play well! The top three Scout scorers in Threshold Runner at the end of the Game-A-Thon on 11/20 will win free passes to Speed Raceway & Axe Throwing in Cinnaminson! (Players must post their scores to the Leaderboard in the PiF^2 app to be counted.)

The unit at the top of the donation leaderboard by 11/20 will get a 15% discount off a camp program of their choice: shooting range, archery range, ATV, or COPE, one time before the end of 2021.

So spread the word about the dramatic increase in food insecurity in South Jersey and how our Game-A-Thon is a way to both have fun and be helpful at the same time!
