Pokemon Wrap-Up! 2018-2019 Marathon Details

Our 2018 Pokemon marathon is now in the books. We raised over $17,000 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital this past week. Thank you for all of the support throughout the event and over our 10 year history. The rest of 2018 is jam packed with TSG events. Very soon we will be at Camp Fangamer July 21-22 celebrating there also 10 year anniversary. You will be able to watch us live stream from camp a variety of Fangamer games while raising money for charity. More details soon!

Our next marathon is “SoulsBorne” (Dark Souls+Bloodborne franchises) October 12-15 for Direct Relief. Prepare to watch us die, A LOT. We will have a good mix of goofy runs and equally bizarre commentary.

Our last marathon of 2018 will be “Nintendo All-Stars” December 14-17 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We will be picking from Nintendo’s huge catalog of games that spans several generations. You will see everything from Battletoads on the NES to Super Smash Bros Ultimate on the Nintendo Switch.

Finally, we have announced our weeklong event for next year, Zelda: Hyrule vs Lorule 2. This event is planned for July 2019. The dates are tentatively scheduled for July 19-26 and are subject to change. This marathon will be a follow up to our successful 2016 Hyrule vs Lorule marathon.

10 Years and 10 Thousand Dollars for St. Jude

Year 10 for TSG started out with a bang. We raised $10,600 for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during our 96 hour Zelda Marathon. Thank you to all of the attendees, moderators and viewers for making this event so successful. There were so many special moments that we will never forget. Also, an extra special thank you to the Zeldathon attendees Kampy and Doug. It was awesome being able to meet them and have them take part in the event.

Things don’t slow down for us as we prepare for our upcoming Pokemon Marathon June 8-15. We are proud to announce that this event will also be for St. Jude. It has been 4 years since we have attempted to catch all of the Pokemon and in that time the capture number has grown. We are now tasked with catching over 800 Pokemon. It will be a challenge and can’t wait to broadcast our adventure starting June 8th on twitch.tv/thespeedgamers . See yo the chat!
