cities_and_knights_of_catanSix guys in British Columbia will attempt to break the world record for longest continuous playing of the same board game. Game of choice: Cities and Knights of Catan. The attempt is set to start on Friday morning at 9 am and go for 50 hours.

6-player Cities and Knights? Feh. The game takes too long. Oh, wait a minute …

The previous record is held by four Germans who played Carcassonne for 42 hours and 48 minutes.

They have a web site, and are asking people to support them by donating to Canadian research into cancer.


Update: They succeeded. (source)
