Thank you to our amazing community for raising over $17,800 for Mercy Corps. The Zelda marathons are always very special and this event proved to be no different.
If you won a prize, I will start shipping these in the next week and you should have an email already in your inbox. If you have any questions about the prizes, email us at email@example.com
Up next is our Indie Marathon which has been in the planning stages for quiet some time. We will have solid dates for you guys very soon, as of right now we know it will be in March.
Also, keep checking back to our website throughout January. We have a big reveal to show off.
I encourage all of our viewers to sign up to our forums so that we can stay in touch. community.thespeedgamers.com
Starting on Friday December 13th at 6pm CST we will be playing the Zelda franchise for 72 hours continuously while raising money for Mercy Corps (http://www.mercycorps.org/). We have a goal of $15,000 and if we reach that goal by Monday December 16th we will extend the marathon by another 24 hours. The Mercy Corps is currently helping those affected by the typhoon in the Philippines by providing emergency relief. You can watch all of the game play and commentary right here on TheSpeedGamers.com
As well as our donation goal we also have a difficult game play goal. We want to complete every Zelda game in under 72 hours. This is going to be hard but we have been practicing hard to make this happen. Soon we will post a game schedule so you can see when your favorite games will be played.
So far we have had many great prizes donated to us and Mayday22 has informed me of many more that are soon to arrive. We will update our new prize page as the prizes come in so keep checking back to TheSpeedGamers.com/prizes

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.
The test stream for our new mixer went relatively well this past week. We’ve ordered a few new mics and we will run another test stream this weekend.
