Mario Marathon has come to a close

Thank you to everyone for such a great event. As of this post, we have raised $29,027 for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.  This amount will receive a bump after this weekend when the rest of the Fangamer donations come in. In case you were not aware, Fangamer extended their donations to St. Jude through this weekend.  If you buy either the Phantom Panic or Super 3 shirts this weekend from Fangamer.com , $10 of the purchase will go to St. Jude!

We announced Zelda as our 2016 Summer Marathon but are holding back on announcing the December 2015 event as of right now. If you watched the Mario Marathon you probably saw some of the buffer and disconnect issues that we were having. We want to fix these issues before committing to doing an event for December. To reiterate,  it’s our intention to do a marathon this December but we want to make sure that we can put on the best show before fully committing.

Keep checking back to the blog for updates on upcoming events and news about TSG. You can also follow us on twitter, @thespeedgamers

Thank you for all of the support that you have given us over our 7 years. We will see you all soon :)

Co-op Extravaganza! Saturday May 23 @2pm central

This Saturday May 23 starting at 2pm central, we will be streaming to raise money for St. Jude with a chance to triple your donations. Gamestop will be matching donations up to $1000 as well as us, TSG!. I’ve decided to call it quits on our TSG HQ dream and use those donations for charity.  I want to give a big thank you to everybody that donated and supported our efforts.  Community members Arten,  the scorpion king Calvin, Jazzaaboo and Mayday donated just under $4000 towards the HQ.  I’ve refunded their money and really appreciate all the help that they have given us.

With the rest of the money from the HQ funds I’ve decided to use  toward our St. Jude fundraising efforts. We will match up to $1000 of this money to your donations during our Saturday stream.  With the remaining  money we will purchase a WiiU bundle  to use as our grand prize during the main event (Mario Marathon July 17-24) and  purchase other prizes and/or upgrade equipment.

This weekend we have the potential to raise $3000 in a very short period of time. $1000 of donations by the viewers will mean another $1000 donation by Gamestop and $1000  by TSG.

I’ll be rounding up old Nintendo 64 games as well as Gamecube games to play with the TSG crew this weekend. My brother, Rob, Mayday, Tyler,  and Rob’s brother Cody might all be stopping by this weekend to get in on the fun! The stream will last for around 6 hours on twitch.tv/thespeedgamers

I hope to see you guys there!
