Up next, ZELDA! Dec 13-16

In the past, Halloween themed marathon’s  have been tough to promote and raise money for. Not the case this past weekend. The community did an amazing job and made the event one of our best ever. The 2013 edition  of the Halloween marathon ranks 4th all time for our 72 hour events behind Pokemon 09′ , Retro Pokemon 11′, and Zelda 11′.  AMAZING!! In total you guys raised over $14,500 for Heifer.org. With all this energy and excitement it’s tough to keep a lid on some of the future plans that TSG has. You guys give so much enjoyment to us. We are truly thankful.

Now we turn our focus to the Zelda marathon (December 13-16). This series is our bread and butter and where TSG got started in 2008.  I’d love for our next event to take over the #1 spot. Promotion and partnerships will be key to doing so. The preparations start tomorrow and I can’t wait to see all of you again in the chat in just a few short months.
