Welcome to the home of the annual Super Nintendo Charity Challenge!
Over 10 years, Child's Play has raised millions upon millions of dollars to benefit children in hospitals. Their primary goal is to provide toys, games, and other fun things to hospitals to help offset what is assuredly a tough time in any kid's life.
The founders of this project, Mike Hannemann and Alex Russell, have donated individually for years, but they wanted to do something bigger. They wanted to hold an event that would draw even more attention to this awesome charity and hopefully raise as much money as possible to benefit the cause.
What better way than by playing games?
During the first weekend of November, a determined group of gamers will be playing a collection of the best games ever released for the Super Nintendo (and some which are just okay) for 72 straight hours. From this page, you can check out the full list of games, get to know the people playing them, and see the schedule of when everything is going to go down. You can also follow along when the event starts or get in touch with us directly.
We sincerely thank you for checking us out and hope that you'll join us in donating.
Thanks for tuning in all weekend! We played over 50 games during this year's event and raised $2,660 for Child's Play! That brings our total amount raised over three years to almost $8,000!
We can't thank you enough for supporting this worthwhile cause and for tuning in to watch this year after year. We'll see you next year!
We've passed $2,000 thanks to over $700 in donations during Mike Sherry's Chrono Trigger run, which clocked in at 7 hours and 43 minutes!
Up now are two other Nintendo classics: Link to the Past and Super Metroid. Tune in and soak up the nostalgia with us.
Thanks to everyone who has donated so far and to everyone watching this weekend. Please donate if you can!
We're 24 hours in! The response has been amazing so far, let's keep it up as Mike Sherry plays through Chrono Trigger, one of the greatest games for the Super Nintendo.
Thanks for tuning in!
After a rousing night of multiplayer games that included NBA Jam, Super Mario Kart, and Super Bomberman, Mike Hannemann settles in to our first RPG: Super Mario RPG. Enjoy watching his run and our first overnight shift of the year!
Mike Sherry will return bright and early to take on one of the other most beloved games of all time with a speed run of Chrono Trigger. Stick around for both!
Thanks for watching and donating. As of midnight, we're at $1,330 raised. That's an incredible outpouring of support already... let's keep going!
Until next year, at least. Donkey Kong Country 2 is much harder than the first. Up next we've got some round robin Super Mario World. Slightly behind schedule, but the schedule is more of a suggested guideline than a hard and fast rule. It's like jazz. Thanks for watching and donating!
