This is my second year participating in Extra Life. Last year the BGG community helped me raise over $600.00 for my local hospital! I'm doing my marathon early, in September 2013, at the Buckeye Game Fest, the local con organized by CABS (Columbus Area Boardgamers Society). I'm doing my marathon late this year, at the CABS After Turkey Day celebration. I'll begin Friday evening and continue through Saturday evening. Thank you for supporting Extra Life!

Oct. 24, 2013 - I've just added a raffle to my fundraiser! Every $25 donation earns an entry into a raffle for some games! See my Extra Life page for details!

This is our second year with participating in the Extra Life event. Last year we raised independently of BGG over $3300 for our local hospital. This year we are channeling our efforts through BGG, our local media, and especially our convention, GrandCon Gaming & Comic Arts (http://www.grand-con.com/) in Grand Rapids, MI. Thank you for helping us where you can!

Kind Regards,

Brian

This will be my fourth year participating. In the past we have done lots of board game and video game playing to raise money for the sick kiddos. Over the last three years we have raised about $2,000. Hopefully this year I can get a team together and raise that much this year alone. That's the goal anyway!

If you're in the Lincoln area and want to participate, send me a geekmail.

I'm working on organizing this for our game group, the Northwest Indiana Boardgamers Association. We haven't done it before, but we're pretty excited about it. I haven't registered yet as we're still working on the details, but I'll post them here as soon as we've got them down. We're most likely going to be doing it in October because the facility we use, the Hallmark Sports Club II, is an indoor soccer arena that starts its busy season on November 2.

EDIT: OK, we're finally set. October 26-27, 9:00 am to 10:00 am.

I'm proud to be joining the team from St Peter's along with Jim Jones (see above). This will be my second year participating in the event and I can hardly wait. One of my co-workers has two children that have been treated at Riley Children's Hospital and it is my honor to support the cause.

Add any other details you think a supporter may find interesting: We're hosting a special game day at Arch Reactor on November 2 for Extra Life. For every dollar donated for that day to our group, Stonemaier Games will match it (up to $1500 total). We're looking forward to a great day of gaming!

Also, we'll have a few advance copies of Euphoria on hand to play, so if you're in St. Louis, I hope you can join us!

Even though I've been apart of Extra Life before, this is the first year that I'm hosting an event. We're playing at a community center, so there are tons of tables and chairs, a small kitchen, and bathrooms. I'm still looking for team members that can commit to 25 hours of gaming. But of course, we need donor support from those who can't game the whole time.

I've got multiple sites with information. You can keep up with our team at these sites: CarlisleBoardGaming.com, Facebook, and MeetUp.com

(from our webpage)
On November 1st and 2nd, Anthony, Paul & Matt along with their friends will be playing board games for 25 consecutive hours as part of the Extra Life campaign to raise money for The Children's Miracle Network.

We are asking our listeners, fans and friends to please sponsor us in this endeavor by clicking the team link and making a donation to any or all of the members of Team Cardboard Jungle.

The funds we raise this year will go to Boston Children's Hospital.

Thank you for supporting us...but more importantly...thanks for supporting the kids.

No donation is too small or too big.

As a bonus we will be recording an episode of the show during the day and will be giving something away to someone who makes a donation.

So what's the deal with Feld? We added a special caveat to the day...while they won't be played exclusively...we will have at least 1 game designed by Stefan Feld being played for the full 25 hour period.
