TSG is BACK! We return to Hyrule for our Zelda Marathon July 15-19, raising money for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital . We will announce prize info, the schedule and more as we get closer to the event.
Our Resident Evil Marathon raised $3,000 for Direct Relief! We now turn our focus to the next marathon , Nintendo All-Stars 2 for St. Jude . The event will take place on Friday December 18-21 on twitch.tv/thespeedgamers. Also check out the awesome new banner that Leanna created! See you all in December!
Last week we decided to delay our week long summer marathon “Zelda Hyrule vs Lorule 3” until Summer 2021. Our marathons rely heavily on travel and being in spaces with many people that not only include TSG members but also hotel attendees and staff. For everyone’s safety and financial situation we want to give our attendees time to cancel their flights and arrangements.
HOWEVER, it’s not all bad news! We will be doing a 72 hour Mario Marathon from July 17-20. This event will function similarly to our marathons from 2008-2010 where we will have local volunteers play and commentate as well as volunteers who will play and commentate remotely.
In addition to this event we will be hosting another marathon that begins on May 1st called “TSG Generations”. This marathon will focus more on remote play, highlighting our staff and community members. We will create a schedule in blocks based on what generation the games came out. The first generations of video games will be scheduled at the beginning of the week, progressing to the more modern games to close out the marathon. The length of the event will depend on the amount of volunteers we get. One of our goals is to relay the stream continuously for as long as we can.
The TSG Generations and the Mario Marathon will benefit St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. All of our events can be viewed on twitch.tv/thespeedgamers . Stay safe and see you all in the chat! TSG.tv
