Alright, let's start sign-ups for our charity games. Please comment on the game you'd want to play for our marathon. Also, please include your timezone (e.g. GMT-8 for me, for Pacific Time zone, US). Date is still TBD, but we will coordinate with everyone when we start deciding that and try to pick a date that works best for as many people as possible.

  • I'm thinking out of all these 5 games, minecraft will be the only one that is going to pull views on twitch tho.

Assuming our goal is something feasible like defeat the ender dragon, or even wither. I (@fredley) don't think perma-death is a great idea, as it would make things pretty tedious if we get nowhere at all.

Donation goals suggestions:

  • No armour allowed
  • Only iron weapons/tools allowed
  • Start on a remote island with no/few trees (I think we should do this anyway!)
  • Suggest More
  • I would like to play. GMT.

  • This looks like we could have a hand over from the GMT-5 guys to the GMT guys, which would be cool.

  • Be sure to get some anti hacks, because some people like Nodus and the like.

  • Assuming I'm free that weekend I should be able to help with this. GMT -5 (Eastern US). I've got a season pass, so I've got all the DLC (and will have the next one if it's out before the marathon) Feb 18, 2013 at 14:06
  • Depending on when this takes place, I may be up for this. I have all the DLC and I'm GMT-6

  • Depending on how (and when) we do this I would be interested. I bought the season pass, so I have all the DLC, but I currently do not have a level 50 character. UTC-4
