    What is Games Done Quick?

    Games Done Quick is a series of charity video game marathons. These events feature high-level play by speedrunners raising money for charity. Games Done Quick has teamed up with several charities in its six-year history, such as Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

    To date, Games Done Quick has raised over 8 million dollars for charity! We also average over 1400 people in attendance at our events, including staff, volunteers, runners, and attendees just looking to have fun and support the event!

    Looking to help?

    We're in the process of wrapping up our last event and prepping for AGDQ2017. We will have much more information on how you can submit a game to run, offer prizes to give away, how to volunteer, and more by the end of August. Hotel room discounts will be available, and we will announce them as soon as they're ready!

    Coming up

    Awesome Games Done Quick 2017 is the next event taking place in January. The event will be taking place from January 8, 2017 - January 15, 2017, in Herndon, VA.
