  Gameday – A Fundraiser in which multiple gamers will be streaming live gameplay to help raise money for the International Video Game Hall of Fame & Museum, is set to take place May 28th – May 30th. During the event, various World Record gamers including myself will be streaming Live video of games from all era's, either attempting World Records or simply playing for fun in an effort to raise money through viewer donations for the International Video Game Hall of Fame & Museum. To view the streams, we've created a website specifically for this event where you can pick from a list of streams currently being aired. This makes jumping from stream to stream and checking out what's happening during the streams very simple and easy. An alert system will also be in place to notify viewers when a World Record is about to be broken or set.  

 Below is a list of Gamers who’ll be streaming themselves playing games or setting World Records and the games to be played (many to be listed as they’re announced), tournament locations participating, and those promoting the event.
