I raced every cup, track, game in the *Mario Kart* franchise. We raised $620 over the course of the month! This totally blew my mind and I am so thankful for everyone that tuned in or donated. I plan on writing a reflective post about what I learned and some behind-the-scenes[^1], but now it is time for my Thursday* night streams to return to “regularly” scheduled programming. For October, I wanted to pick some spooky-themed games. To kick off the month, I decided to return to *The Order: 1886*. It’s a short and sweet game that seemed perfect for streaming. I won’t beat it in one sitting like I did eight years ago, but I imagine I’ll still have fun. I’ve [[Millennial Gaming Speak – Episode 3 - GDC Wrap-Up|long been a defender]] of *The Order: 1886*.

Come hang out tonight and let’s find out if I was right eight years ago. --- [^1]: Wouldn’t be me if I didn’t do some big post-event deep dive. 😅
