Every year for Nick’s Marathon, a bunch of people cram into a Manhattan apartment for 48 consecutive hours of video gaming. But this year, in the midst of a global pandemic, that simply isn’t going to work.
So, we’re mixing things up.
In 2020, we’ll be gaming together, but apart. Many of the usual Nick’s Marathon “players” will be taking on different games, and you’ll be able to watch them all at once!
And, in honor of Super Mario’s 35th anniversary — and the release of Super Mario 3D All Stars — we’ll see how many Mario games we can get through in a single weekend. Will we be able to beat Super Mario Sunshine? Who can finish Super Mario Bros. the fastest? Is there any chance that one of us can get 100% completion on Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island? (Highly doubtful on that one…)
You’ll be able to watch multiple live gaming sessions at the same time. And while you watch, you can make a tax-deductible donation to a great cause!
It all starts at 8PM EST on Friday, November 20, 2020. In the meantime, you can also support us by buying a limited-edition Nick’s Marathon face mask!
