History

Pre-launch and Launch (January 2009 - September 2009)

At the beginning of 2009, it was announced that Nickelodeon XD would cease broadcasting by the end of summer. One week before the end of NXD, it was announced that the NGSC would take it's place. On September 1, 2009 @ 12:00 AM, NGSC showed a 30 second bumper of game shows that it will air throughout the day, including GUTS, Nick Arcade, Slime Time Retro, Figure It Out, Double Dare, Legends of the Hidden Temple and more.

Early years (2009 - 2010)

During the early years, the ratings were strong all across the board, not dropping below 800,000, and it's highest was 3.1 million during an airing of the original Nick Arcade pilot in early 2010.

Rebrand and New name (2015)

At the NGSC summit in early February, it was announced that in late February/early March that the channel will rebrand as NickGame. In late March, an HD Feed was launched. Also in late March, some programming that was doing poorly was dropped from the lineup.

Proposed shut down

It was announced in early September that the channel would shut down to make room for other properties. The shutdown date will be in mid October.

RaGE Media takeover

In late September, it was announced that Viacom will pull it's funding from the channel, and RaGE Media picked up the channel and it will rebrand as The Game on September 27, 2015, and as such, all Nickelodeon programming except for Nick Arcade and Nickelodeon Guts were removed from the schedule. RaGE Media has said that it will make more original programming for The Game, including some original films. In November, the channel was rebranded as RaGE Game, and a block spun off from the original name, Nick Game, was launched as well.

2016 revamp

On March 2, 2016, RaGE Media Group announced that RaGE Game will revamp it's schedule, and it will move it's Nickelodeon programming to a Saturday morning block from 6a-9:30a.
