Throwdown FAQ

Are you going to be in Las Vegas this year?

The 25-Hour Game Show Throwdown will not be held in Las Vegas this year. We will be at the Hyatt Place Glendale Los Angeles.


Is the Throwdown a part of a bigger convention?

No, this year's Throwdown is being put on solely by Home Game Entertainment.


Are there any events other than the Throwdown happening that weekend?

No, but there are plenty of things to do in the area prior to and following Throwdown Weekend.


Is there an admission cost?

A $20 donation to any of our chosen hospitals online via Extra-Life.org or in cash at the door will get you in. Seating will be VERY limited due to room size.


Will you accept in-room donations?

Yes, so we encourage you to bring cash to make donations. We will also have Pledge slips for you.


How do I become a contestant?

Follow this link to fill out our Contestant Registration form. As always, registration or donations DO NOT guarantee you a seat in the game; our Contestant Coordinators will have final judgment on who plays each game.


Are you affiliated with Game Show Marathon?

GSM and GST are two separate events raising money for two separate and worthy charities. We encourage everyone to check them out and donate to their cause: Child's Play.


Will there be hotel accommodations for out-of-town visitors?

Home Game Entertainment is not making accommodations but we highly encourage you to make reservations at the Hyatt Place Glendale Los Angeles where the event is being held.


I'm driving to the hotel, where should I park?

The Hyatt Place Glendale Los Angeles offers on-site Valet parking for guests (please check their website for current pricing). The hotel is near the Glendale Galleria and the Americana At Brand, so street parking and paid city parking will also be available nearby. Make sure to observe all posted signage and meters.


How about food and drinks?

The Hyatt Place Glendale Los Angeles offers quick service "Grab-N-Go" snacks and bottled drinks in the Lobby, as well as a full-service bar open till Midnight. No outside food or drink will be permitted inside the hotel. If you have special dietary concerns, please contact the hotel directly for further clarification.
