Nintendothon Odyssey – Adventure Awaits!

We’ve officially only got one week to go until we take off on our unforgettable adventure at Nintendothon Odyssey! We hope you’re as excited as we are to kick off this adventure on July 22nd, but before we take to the skies, we have a couple more details to run through in this pre-trip briefing!

As alluded to in our blog post two weeks ago, there is still much to be revealed about Nintendothon Odyssey, including what makes this event an odyssey in the first place! We believe there is no better time than the present to finally share all of the exciting things we’ve been working on in preparation for this event starting all the way back in April. Without further ado, let’s get into the rest of the details about our upcoming charity marathon, starting with the primary theme of the event, Destinations!


As part of the Odyssey travel package, we at the Nintendothon Travel Agency are excited to bring you to a variety of unique and exclusive locales. Each destination offers their own unique experiences that we encourage you to try out when you’re visiting!

This summer at Nintendothon Odyssey, we’re taking you around the world in five days with our central theme for the event: Destinations! With every new day at Nintendothon Odyssey, we’ll also be traveling to a brand new Destination, not only offering you new ways to make your Nintendothon experience even more memorable, but also changing the look and feel of the stream in the process!

Each Destination will offer its own incentives called Attractions, which are unique experiences exclusive to each locale. There are three tiers of Attractions available at each Destination (called 1-star, 2-star, and 3-star Attractions respectively) and unlocking them requires raising the Admission Price: a corresponding amount for the charity campaign in the 24 hours that we visit that locale. To get the most out of your odyssey this summer, we encourage you to work together with your fellow vacationers to raise the Admission Prices and have an unforgettable experience at each Destination we visit!

We’re excited to finally share with you the places we’re headed to on our Odyssey this summer, starting with a beachside party that never stops!

The first day of our adventure takes us to Odyssey Island, where our accommodations will most certainly start our trip with a bang! At the Bouncing Beach Resort, you’ll get the best of both worlds of a beachfront vacation. While the sun is shining high in the sky, you can kick back, sip on a smoothie from the juice bar and enjoy the relaxing sounds of the waves crashing into the shore. When the day fades to night, the party comes to life. Take a spin on the dance floor, turn the volume up to 11, and keep on jamming, because this party doesn’t stop ’till dawn!

The second day of our vacation takes us to the far away land of Sugar Sweet Springs, a small town built on top of a natural hot spring. Geologists and settlers alike were initially drawn to this area for its natural beauty, but soon discovered that the water that endlessly sprung from its springs and geysers was also naturally sweet! Not long after, a small town was formed, filled with people that love everything and anything related to food. The foodie locals of Sugar Sweet Springs are excited to share their sweet treats and experiences with you on this adventure!

We encourage you to step out of your air-conditioned lodgings and step in to the fiery marketplace that calls Scorching Sand Land its home.

We hope you’re as excited as we are to travel to these unique destinations with us this summer at Nintendothon Odyssey!


At each destination we visit, be sure to have your passport out! It’s the only way you can collect a unique stamp at each place we go!

Last summer at Nintendothon New Horizons, we made a special effort to highlight every single donation, regardless of size, to emphasize how much we appreciated those who contribute to our campaigns. Borne from this initiative last summer were the fan-favorite Leaflets, where we populated our walls with your names! We heard your positive feedback about this system, and we’re excited to have it return once again this marathon with a special twist!

We’re pleased to introduce our donor recognition system for Nintendothon Odyssey- Stamps! For every individual donation to the Splash of Summer campaign during Nintendothon Odyssey, regardless of size, your name will be written on a sticky note and placed on the wall behind the gameplay couch, where it will stay for the remainder of the marathon! Each destination that we visit will offer its own unique stamp design. Donate every day of the event and you’ll be sure to get your name on all five of the different stamps!

A sample of the five different stamps offered at Nintendothon Odyssey! Each Destination has an associated stamp that fits its theme!

Similar to last summer, we want to make a note that Stamps do not replace the tradition of writing names on the Nintendothon Odyssey banner. For a cumulative $10 donated across the whole event, you’ll still get your name written on the event banner to cement yourself physically and permanently in Nintendothon history!

Be sure to follow Gaming for Global Change on Twitter, as we’ll also be posting close-up photos of our growing stamp collection each day of the marathon, so you can be sure to spot your stamps on the wall!


The Nintendothon Travel Agency has planned five days of action, adventure and fun for your getaway! Sit back and enjoy the experiences we have planned for you!

We’re happy to announce that the full schedule for the Nintendothon Odyssey marathon is now complete! You can find the completed schedule over at its page on the Nintendothon website! We’ll also soon be integrating the schedule into the Tiltify campaign page, so you can check there to see what’s up next and when as the event airs live!
