Madness...?

THIS IS DESERT BUS!!

Hah... In all seriousness, there will supposedly be a gathering of game-playing fools tonight who will buy into a Smash Brothers Brawl tournament for charity, a charity to THIS charity. And between the get-you-in price plus the buy-you-into-rounds prices that I heard about, a fair chunk of change will probably be deposited upon the group.

It begins around 8-ish EST, and will progress into the night. Don't say I didn't warn you.

This is wonderful. The cause is good and the livefeed is far more entertaining than I thought.

Pity I'm a poor student, but you can buy a lot of crayons for 5USD, so..

Well done by the Escapist of featuring this.

Safety Dance followed by The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny: it's a good evening to watch the feed.

Plus, under 2k to breaking last year's donation amount! Go bus, go!

i so want to get this game just so i can see how long i can last

Penn and Teller must be so proud.

The crew have admitted that Penn and Teller are like...buying them food during all this and such.

$81,000 mark passed.

Have you donated?

Holy shit. I went to sleep, woke up, and you guys had jumped 15g. Nice.

The bus is down folk's, good run though.

When does it end?

Just put $80 in woot!

Thank god I don't know the conversion rates. Then I might not have donated.

The_Prophet:
When does it end?

When they run out of money, you see on the feed how it say's so many hours/so many hours, the second number is how many hours the donations have paid for, the first number is how long its been going so far. The first bus crashed this afternoon, so were on bus 2 atm.

Ladies and gentlemen, thus far:

$113,889.00

Might I just add, Octopimp for Emperor? I think so.

Positively exhilarating, and I missed the magical moment. How did the latest auctions go?

I believe we have

$118,838.45

The bus is slowing! Only an hour or so left, so get over and help push!

Sleep well LRR'ers.

And...post 10K for Root. :)

Congrats on 10k Root, and congrats to LRR and Desert Bus for Hope. They've been great fun to follow this last week. Here's to an even better run next year!

So, somehow they did manage squeeze it past 132K. Thatīs just...yeah, exactly!

Huge internet connection fail prevented me from watching the closing ceremonies, but still, these past five days have been pure enjoyment. Thank you LRR, thank you Escapist!

And congrats, Root.
