We have big news regarding the prizes that will be given away during the marathon. After the completion of certain games we will be giving away two prizes, one for Euro viewers and one for viewers in the states. If no Euro prize is listed, it means ALL viewers are eligible to win because the prize is not limited by region. For example, our Metroid clock prize will work fine wherever you live, however our U.S version of Metroid for the Nes cannot be played on a European Nes console.

Rules: In order to be entered to win a prize (except the grand prize) you must send an email during the game thats being played for that said prize. Each prize is given away upon completion of its game. This will be less confusing during the marathon.

In order to be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE, any donation a $1 or over will gain 1 entry, $5 and over will get you two, and $20 and over for 3 entries. Maximum 3 entries
