Edit (2/20): This marathon was originally scheduled to run on Feb 20. We’ve encountered some last minute technical problems that have led us to decide the marathon would be best postponed to avoid any delays in gameplay or reaping. You can now expect the marathon to begin at 10:00 PM EST on Friday 2/27.
