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 ten year history!
The rest of 2018 is jam-packed with TSG events. Very soon we will be at Camp Fangamer (July 21-22), their ten-year anniversary, too. You will be able to watch us live stream 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, The Legend of Zelda Marathon 2019: Hyrule vs. Lorule II. This event is planned for July 2019. This marathon will be a follow up to our successful 2016 Hyrule vs. Lorule marathon.
While you wait for our events, please join the community and hang out in our discord! Discord.gg/tsg

The Zelda Marathon “Hyrule vs Lorule” begins on June 24 @ 6pm central on twitch.tv/thespeedgamers . For more details, go here: http://blog.tsg.tv/2016/05/zelda-marathon-details-june-24-july-1-hyrule-vs-lorule/

Rules recap: Attendees have been divided into two teams, Hyrule and Lorule. There are 14 games being played by each team. For each run, a player starts with 5 points. Each death results in a loss of one point. If a runner beats their goal time, they will receive a bonus point. During races, the winning runner will get 3 points for their team. At the end of the marathon, the team with the most points will be awarded the Tri-Hard Championship.
Daily points up for grabs!: There will be around 3 points per day that the chat/community will have an impact on which team gets the points. We will be running promotional contests, fan art, auctions and more to decide which teams are worthy of the points.
Buy items at the Curiosity Shop to help your team!: When donating you will be able to purchase items from the Curiosity Shop that will impact the player. For example, by putting “arrows” in a donation comment $30 or higher will result in an automated nerf gun firing arrows at the player. We have several other items rigged up to an Arduino board that will trigger from keywords in donation comments. A list of items and their prices will be available during the marathon.
And more: Prizes, shirts and more will be detailed in the coming weeks.
