Saturday, December 16th.  1pm EST (7pm CET)

A race of 16 games for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System. These games have recently celebrated their 25th anniversary and you can join in the fun by racing a short goal of each one. The total race time will be approximately 3 hours for the top finishers (but most people should plan for longer). You can sign up here so people know you're participating, however signing up isn't neccessary. All you need to do is join the race via SpeedRunsLive on Saturday December 16th before 1pm EST. You can watch the race on twitch.tv/SpeedGaming.

This is the second in a series of Super 16 races that will be taking place over the next several years. For each race we will pick games that are approaching their 25th anniversary, roughly following the order of release. Join us as we play the best (and worst?) games of the SNES Library!
