I've read it in an old magazine and remembered it while I was writing my Fate review.
My memories are a bit hazy, though. I remember that the official Guinness rules were that he could stop every hour for a 5 minute break, where he could do whatever he wanted i.e. pooping/eating/powernapping.
Of course, drinking and eating could also be done while playing but he had to be careful, not to drink to much so that he didn't have to go to the bathroom outside of these 5 minute breaks.
I remember reading an interview where he said that coffee didn't work and only made him sleepy so he drank mainly fruit juices.
I also remember that this was a sponsored event by reLine and some German magazine and that he could essentially play whatever games he wanted - it didn't have to be the same game all the time - but he was so fascinated by Fate that he played nothing else.
I think, he started the event with another guy but this other guy had to quit after 30 hours or so.
Mr Kopmann was watched during the whole time he played, so that he wouldn't cheat and so that nothing bad happened (I think I read a story somewhere that he began hallucinating after 70 hours).
I mean, 166 hours is almost an entire week without sleep. That can't be healthy.
Niezły hardcore, co godzinę 5-minutowa przerwa, a po 70-ciu godzinach gość zaczął miewać halucynacje.
Mi udało się maksymalnie gdzieś 2.5 dniowy giercowy maratonik urządzić, ale nie chciałbym tego powtarzać, teraz po 1.5 dnia jestem już zajechany... o, patrzcie, już 17-sta, czas na drzemkę...
