Celebrity Gaming Challenge is the first of its kind. It combines sports culture, celebrities, and Gaming to create a sports style competition show. Two Celebrities or Athletes will lead a team of gamers into multiple video game challenges all while winning money for charity.
Gamers of all ages, gaming experience and skill will compete at local Microsoft retail stores around the New England area for their chance to be one of 6 gamers to be drafted to one of the two Celebrity teams. Once drafted to a team they will compete in 5 rounds. Each round will display a different game and a different challenge. All games are randomly selected during the show leaving the Celebrity team captain to draft a diverse gaming team as they won’t know what game is coming next and won’t be able to use the same team member twice in a challenge. The team with the most points at the end of the 5th round will be crowned champion and will be awarded the grand prize.
Celebrity Gaming Challenge is hosted by Jon Mattarocchia. Celebrity Gaming Challenge executive producers Greg Allen and Michelle Romano (Romano Media, and Millwood) associate producer Jason Carmody the series is produced by Blind Sheep Studios.
