Welcome to Game Over, Cancer!

It's time to tell cancer that it's Game Over!


Game Over, Cancer! is Atlantic Canada's largest console gaming fundraiser! We raise money for the Canadian Cancer Society through many video game related events every year. This year we have teamed up with even more incredible sponsors, to bring the event to a completely new level and raise even more money for cancer research. Come out, play some awesome games, and raise money for a great cause.

Hope to see you all there!

Event Details
NO IN-PERSON EVENTS FOR 2020! We hope to see you next year!
Mystery Tournament
Enter the Mystery Tournament and go head to head with gamers alike! You will enter not knowing what games will be played, or what consoles they will be played on! Battle it out until only one entrant remains in this single elimination bracket style tournament!

For example:
Round 1 - Go head to head in a puzzle game on the Sega Genesis
Round 2 - Battle it out in a shooting game on the PS3
Round 3 - Finish a level in an NES game faster than the other entrants to move on!
Massive Free-Play Area
Relax with friends and make new ones in our expansive free-play area. Pick from our library of over 1,000 games, and play on a large variety of consoles ranging from retro to recent! Enjoy old favorites and maybe even discover a few new ones!
