Hey guys! We’re thrilled to be working with our friends at Fangamer again to offer some great Final Fantasy-themed shirts for our marathon!
If you CLICK THIS LINK, you’ll be taken to a page on the Fangamer website with our three shirts: Cactus Run, Floral Fantasy (t-shirt), and Floral Fantasy (women’s tank). Each of these shirts cost $24, but $10 from EVERY SALE through July 20 will be donated to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital during our marathon! This is a great way to donate to charity while still getting something for yourself, and we can’t thank Fangamer enough for this opportunity!
As a bonus, these shirts were designed by our very own Space Coyote, so be sure to thank her yourself on Twitter!
TSG’s Final Fantasy Marathon 2017: Pixels vs. Polygons begins THIS FRIDAY, July 14, at 6pm CT at http://twitch.tv/thespeedgamers! 100% of the donations received will go directly to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and we’ll extend the marathon for a full 24 hours if we can reach $30,000 in donations by the end of our auction on Wednesday, July 19! We hope you tune in for our most exciting event of the year!
Fangamer is supporting our event with these AWESOME official TSG.TV Zelda Marathon team shirts. $10 from each purchase will go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Who will you side with? Both go toward the same great cause, St. Jude!!

Our friends over at Fangamer have gotten off to a great start with their Kickstarter project. Fangamer has been a huge part of why our marathons have been so successful. They have donated the proceeds of many of their products to the charities we have gamed for as well as Camille Young supplying us with great auction pieces which have raised thousands of dollars for our causes.
Learn more about their retrowear project on their Kickstarter page: http://www.fangamer.com/retrowear
Be sure to check out their hilarious and informative video:
This past Friday we helped host an auction along side Fangamer to raise money for michaeljfox.org, in support of Parkinson’s research. Fangamer was entrusted with several Earthbound plushies and stickers to raise money for a charity. They made a great choice in charity and we were proud to represent.
Our two communities came together in an amazing effort and raised $10,146!!
I want to thank Fangamer for the letting us co-host the event. We had a ton of fun and look forward to working with Fangamer again in the future.
From Fangamer’s newsletter:
PK Fire Sale!
“Steve slayed the backlog-monster, but we unintentionally oversold some shirts — Chronometer, in particular, was very popular at the convention. We need to reprint several other items as well, but funds are a little tight.
With that in mind, we’ve devised our first-ever PK Fire Sale to clear out some old stock (especially women’s sizes!) and get things rolling again. You can get 10% off $25+ with the coupon FIRESALE-ALPHA, 15% off $50+ with the coupon FIRESALE-OMEGA, and the first 50 people to use either coupon get a free Patch Pack!
On top of that, we’ve discounted some of our older merch like Flinter, Pandora’s Happy Box, the Punk Boards, and EB9X. Combine these discounts with the coupon and you’ve got a rare chance to get a pretty incredible deal on some merch! Just remember, the PK Fire Sale will last for less than a week, so you’ll need to move quick if you want to snap up the few popular sizes we’ve got left over! ”
The awesome peeps over at Fangamer are once again teaming up with us for the Mario Marathon. They are putting out a new Mario inspired shirt design called “Pipe vault”. I will get the details out to you guys soon, but for right now we need to see what colors you guys are interested in. VOTE HERE!!!!!!!! <<Click ME
