I want to thank all of our community members who were able to participate in the 2017 Labor Day Madness event! We had a BLAST playing a few hours of Marble Blast with such a large group of players.
If you were unable to make today's event, we have a few more in store! We'll post more details on the Forums and Discord in the coming weeks.
This year, we started the event a half hour early to make sure we resolved any connection or incompatibility issues prior to the official event start time. We had a handful of users experiencing some difficulties joining the server, and we appreciated your patience and assistance working with us to troubleshoot and work through these issues.
Once we had a large sum of players with us, we played a couple rounds of Hunt mode, including our annual King of the Marble camp. Afterwards, we spent some time trying out a few Mega Marble War rounds, immediately followed by several rounds of Co-Op.
We ended the afternoon with the King of the Mountain/Island series before finishing off with an Ultimate Time on Battlecube Finale.
We've uploaded a few action shots of the madness below; several users also streamed the entire event, and we encourage you to upload and share your videos of the madness in the comments!
Early on in the event, playing some Mega Marble War
Our best round of King of the Marble "camp" - Our top score this year is 302 (only 200 short of our top score in 2016)!
Mega Marble War on Eye of the Storm - Pure chaos!
Players cooling off in a round of Wonky Waters
A race to the finish in a 14 Player Co-Op of Manic Bounce, PQ's hardest Expert level!
Some technical difficulties while trying out the Puzzle series...
Turns out, some puzzles just weren't meant for 16 players.

Jeff manages to crush everyone at skillshots
A fitting conclusion to the end of Labor Day Madness 2017
Thank you again, and we'll certainly see you in 2018 for more Labor Day Madness!
