How it Works

At 7:00pm EDT on October 21st, we will begin playing Catan LIVE! 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, at $5, we will dole out high fives and cheer 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 it's a Ghost Pepper, the Jenga is giant, and it's played by our loyal Jenga Butler.

All donations get combined into a total that determines how long we play. The more money donated, the more time we play.

Each hour becomes harder to reach, increasing the stakes, the tension, and the money raised for cancer research!


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 eleventh year, THE CATANATHON has raised over 65,000 DOLLARS and over 200 HOURS have been played!

THE CATANATHON aims to kick cancer in the butt by raising money for cancer research through the continual playing of the board game classic Catan.
