Just a few weeks ago, Summer Games Done Quick released their list of games for the 2017 speed running marathon. I covered that list (and explained what SGDQ is) over in this article. Today, the official schedule has been released, so you’ll know exactly when to catch your favorite games! I’m exceptionally excited for this year, as the list of games has already proved impressive.
All donations received during SGDQ 2017 will benefit Doctors Without Borders, a great charity that aims to bring health care to those in need.
Now that the time slots are clear, here’s my suggestions on what to watch each day! You can see the full schedule HERE. Keep in mind that as the event happens, the schedule will adjust. Meaning, if you’re reading and the marathon has already started, some of the times listed below will be incorrect.
