Our latest Spiel-a-thon was at Geekway to the West in St. Louis on May 20, 2017!
What is the Spiel-a-thon?
It’s a fundraising event for The Spiel Foundation.
The Spiel Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to donating quality board and card games to children’s hospitals and senior citizen’s centers.
Each year, we assemble bundles of five games and donate these bundles to organizations that fit our mandate.
Each bundle costs at least $70 – 80 including shipping, so your contributions help the Foundation donate more bundles to kids and seniors across the country.
SATURDAY May 20, 1:00 – 4:00 PM
The event will take place right outside the main gaming hall.
There will be several game stations set up in the room with teachers ready to explain and help you play several quick fun games great for players of all ages. You’ll receive a punchcard when you enter the Spiel-a-thon and for every game you play you’ll receive a stamp on your card. For every game you play, you’ll donate $3 dollars to the Foundation. There will be random prize drawings during the event for people playing and there will be a final round filled by those who played the most games over the course of the event. Finalists will compete for their share of a wonderful prize pool donated by several generous game publishers in the industry.
