The purpose of the event is to provide
game with heart , underlines its director Hubert Pelletier. The profits raised during the marathon will indeed be donated to Leucan Estrie and the Alternative Accommodation Center in Sherbrooke, a mental health resource.
The games offered during the weekend are divided into three parts: video games, board games and active games.
Retro consoles from the 80s and 90s, a 360° projection dome, arcades and escape games await players of all ages in particular.
We also have a LAN [« Local Area Network »] for the more serious folks, to bring their own PC or console and sit at a reserved table. They can play from Saturday to Sunday, including the night, and Sherweb offers them a place to rest during this long marathon.emphasizes Hubert Pelletier.
Families and amateurs are also welcome to come and play for a few hours, according to their desires, during their weekend.
” For me, it’s the perfect opportunity to come and have fun with all the good conscience possible. Sometimes, we say to ourselves “I’m having fun, I’m less efficient”, but here, we’re having fun and helping charities in need! »
A return to basics
The event, launched in 2012, returns after a two-year absence due to the pandemic.
We relaunch at the end of the week. It’s an opportunity to reconnect with our passions, reconnect with the public, and recreate a new opportunity to support charities.exclaims its director.
It’s a return to basics. Our volunteers are really happy to be working on all this again. We are really happy to see our world again, and we can’t wait to see the public again in the same wayrejoices Mr. Pelletier.
