PopCap fans on solitaire record blitz

Two hard-core fans of PopCap’s Solitaire Blitz will attempt to set a Guiness World Record with a marathon session beginning Tuesday morning.

Kathleen Henkel in Oakland, N.J., and Laura Rich in Cardiff, Wales, are planning to set a record for “Longest Videogames Marathon Playing a Card Game.”

They’ll challenge previous records held by untold, unnamed office workers playing “Solitaire” on Windows for decades.

Henkel will play for the record in a special storefront stage on Lexington Avenue in Manhattan and Rich will play at the Sea Life London Aquarium.

Their play will be broadcast starting at 6 a.m. Tuesday on a special Facebook page where they’re also raising money for charity:water, a nonprofit working on drinking water projects in developing countries. This is of particular interest to Henkel, whose charitable work in Africa includes helping build a well in Guinea.

Henkel and Rich are already closing in on their goal of raising $90,000, with pledges of $89,580 so far from more than 1,400 people.
