Celebrity Gaming Challenge Launches This Fall – Looks for Contestants

Celebrity Gaming Challenge A first of its kind, Celebrity Gaming Challenge is coming to your TV screens this Fall featuring two squads of top Xbox players facing off in random video game challenges. Now you have the opportunity to answer their open call for gamers! Sounds pretty interesting (although I’m not much into watching other people play) yet I’m a bit surprised the focus is on the 360. Yes, I understand Microsoft will support the 360 through 2016 or so but you’d think they’d want to showcase the One rather than the current gen system…

From Blind Sheep Studios:

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 fall, the TV show will feature two New England Patriot players 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 Xbox360 platform and some of the hottest games of 2013 selected the night of the event to truly test competitors.

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 October 23.   The preliminary rounds will begin at Microsoft at the Natick Mall in Natick, MA on Oct. 18, with the remaining dates being, Microsoft at Salem, NH on Oct. 19 and the final round at Microsoft at The Shops at Prudential Center in Boston on Oct. 20, 2013.  The preliminary rounds are open to the public and you can register at  In addition to competing in the Celebrity Gaming Challenge final, competitors will have an opportunity to compete for valuable prize packages.  The completion field is limited to 400 participants per location. Space is extremely limited so sign up now.

The Celebrity Gaming Challenge final will feature our two New England Patriot captains drafting their respective team members from the pool of preliminary winners via NFL style draft.  Our Celebrity Team Captains and their respected team members will then go head to head to battle it out not only for pride, but for an opportunity to win for their favorite charities (charity).  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.  

Do you have what it takes to be the next ultimate gamer?
