Some of the Streamers and Smashers include Cosmo Wright, Mychal “Trihex” Jefferson, Siglemic, Joey “Lucky” Aldama, Weston “Westballz” Dennis, and Nairoby “Nairo” Quezada. A full schedule can be found here.
Much like Awesome Games Done Quick, Smash the Record is a similar type of charity drive in which top players marathon games while trying to bolster charity donations. This year, Smash the Record is hoping to raise $50,000 for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Unlike AGDQ, Smash the Record also hosts a Super Smash Bros. tournament.
If certain donation goals are met during the charity drive, gamers will remix the way they play for audience amusement. For example, if $15,000 is met, eight players will battle it out in Smash while wearing oven mitts. There will also be prizes for donors. For those who throw in $10, they will be eligible to win a Twitch hoodie, or $100 gets donors into a raffle to win a Wii U with Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and four controllers.
