At 7:00pm EDT on October 11th, we will begin playing Catan at our Catanathon HQ live on the internets. On our Donation page, you will find a series of donation options to choose from.
Each donation option is different. While some are designed to spread cheer, others are designed to inflict unspeakable horrors on our players.For example, for a $5 donation, we will dole out high fives and cheers your name.
At $30 we will rename the robber to any name of your choosing and we will have to call it by that name.
At $500 we will play a game of Jalapeno Jenga, except its a Ghost Pepper and the Jenga is giant.
All donations get combined into a total that determines how long we play. The more money donated, the more time we play.
The only way we can take a reprieve from this great torturous cause is to win a game. Winning a game allows you a 2-hour nap. However, you could donate $200 to take away someone’s nap, which would make you the evilest yet delightful charity donating human around. Don’t worry you can also donate $200 to give someone a nap.
Once upon a time, there was a boy named Scott Moyle who wanted to run a charity event and was inspired by the already successful Desert Bus for Hope. Along with 3-4 additional plucky souls, THE CATANATHON was born. After a couple of successful years, we partnered up with The Canadian Cancer Society.
Now in its eighth year, THE CATANATHON has raised over 25,000 DOLLARS and over 120 HOURS have been played!
THE CATANATHON aims to eradicate cancer by raising money for cancer research through the continual playing of the board game classic — Catan.
