  1. It's that time of year again!! MomoCon 2016 was one of the best recruitment events we've had in the history of the Atlanta Guild, and this year is going to be even better!! For the first time not only will we be recruiting new members at the event, but we will also be actively taking donations at the event, a much requested change from last year. As before, those who volunteer to work a shift (no more than 5 hours max per shift), will receive a free full 4-day badge to the event so that you can experience all the Con has to offer when you are not manning the Extra Life booth. That includes access to all areas of the event including: Gaming Hall, Expo Hall, Main and sub stages, panels, classes and much more!! The only extra cost is for lodging, meals, souvenirs, and the Final Fantasy Orchestra concert. Another big change for this year, rather than just a table in the general organizations area, we are now part of the official MomoCon Charity Row section, complete with our own 10' x 10' booth!! We've got some great plans for the space, and I will be sharing those as we get closer to the event. If you are interest in volunteering, please click the link below to access the sign up sheet. Please fill in as much info as possible so we have a way to contact you during the event. Also, this is a first come first served event, and we have a limited number of passes available (16), so if you are interested you should sign up sooner rather than later! I will be onsite again throughout the event, and I look forward to working with everyone. Let's make this year's event the best yet!!!

  2. Hey everybody! I'm a 4th year Extra Lifer, and I am trying to rally the troops this year in Miami! I have participated for the past 3 years in Tampa, and I love being able to meet people from all around Florida, as well as the United States, doing something charitable and fun. I know Miami is deserving of a Guild this year. We have so many people in the community, this should be easy peasy! We are so spread out it is hard to organize things without knowing how many people are actually out there, so please feel free to reach out and make it easier to map where we really are! So please, use this space to introduce yourselves and get to know each other. I'll start us off! 1. What do you go by? Alex or Dino. People love calling me Dino, especially kids, and I always respond with a Rawr! 2. What are some of your favorite games? Anything from old school to new school. Mainly FPS now. I play on both Xbox One and PC. Console: Call of Duty, Halo, party games | PC: CS:GO, Call of Duty, Overwatch, arcade games. I dig card games and board games too! Love the DC deck builder game! And Poker, Go Fish! Monopoly, and lots more! 3. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go? Japan, Germany and India. Japan because I love the culture and I spent 7 years learning the language. Germany because I also learned the language and seems like an amazing place to go, and India because I want to do a spiritual tour of the land and find my Zen. 4. What hobbies do you have, outside of gaming? I LOVE working on my car! She's my baby and I treat her like royalty! Also rock climbing takes up a lot of my time. I am a photographer as well as work at a software company, so I have quite a few things to take up my time outside of gaming. 5. When you're not recruiting for Extra-Life, we can most likely find you...? Probably being a hermit at the house. I love streaming and competing. I also try and commentate on FGC events! Every now and then under the hood of my car, and if you really wanna so a dinosaur liftin' some iron, find me at the gym! 6. Post a picture that best represents you -- you, a meme, your pets, or all of the above! This definitely describes me when asked who I relate to in a video game. DVA IS THE BEST TANK!
  3. Hey all - I've been working on a little handout that can act as a quick start guide for anyone who has just signed up for Extra Life. It's a compact little guide with great input from some of our most active and dedicated members. It can be printed as a one-sided full page, or front and back of a page to create two long-ways half sheet that can be folded in half for a quarter sheet size. Feel free to use it whenever you recruit! @DJThunderstix @LeaveIt2Beaver, feel free to review and offer suggestions. Special thanks to everyone who provided quotes!

  4. Hey y’all! Your monthly Extra-Life Nashville Guild update coming at ya. At our last meeting, we went through goals and upcoming events. We’re going to start getting more involved with some local organizations and heading to tabletop gaming events. Stay tuned for more on that. Let’s go through the highlights of upcoming events! Wednesday March 1st - Monthly meeting will be at the same time (7pm), same place (Children’s Hospital) and we’ll have a lot to go over! Game Day with the kids will be this same day, 2-4pm as usual if anyone can make it Thursday March 17th & Friday March 18th - TEDx Nashville is a go! At the monthly meeting we will be assigning people to be in charge of scheduling and logistics. The TED people are very excited to have us involved and want to give us plenty of space/bean bag chairs/ table tops for games and possible streaming. Email Mark if you’d like to help work it. Tuesday April 4th - Drink 4 a Cause at Kung Fu Saloon! They’ll be donating 15% of sales from the day to Extra-Life. Email Lydia if you have any specific questions! Wednesday April 5th - This is won’t be our typical monthly meeting, but instead will be a Guild Kickoff meeting at the Children’s Hospital Theater! Food will be provided. Bring friends! Email Mark if you have questions, but hopefully we’ll get people from the night before to join us. See y’all in a few weeks for the next Monthly Meeting! We’ll be broadcasting again on Discord for anyone who can’t make it there. If there are any updates before the meeting, we’ll be sure to let everyone know! But in the meantime, all events are on our Community Calendar here. Laterz! Kristina (Spoety)
  5. Hey Folks, We finished a great year. Thanks agian to all involved. Final totals for the year. 1710 Participants ( 2nd overall) $260K ( 4th Overall) **I think this is a new record total for Boston Children's!!! Guild VP Position From the previous post, we are taking applications for the Guild VP position. So far we've had a few applicants, and we are looking at them. More to come. Meetings We are not having a January meeting. There was no availability at our meeting space, and with the holiday response from Microsoft was too late to get in for the first week. Our next meeting dates are Feb 8th and Mar 8th, with a official 2017 kick off meeting aimed at first week of April. Events/Cons We have table space at Arisia next weekend. With the tables being in the same location as last year we are just going with a flyer table, unmanned. This con was not very prodictive for us with the tables in that space. (I will be at Arisia all weekend and will supply the table with Flyers.) We already have 2 cons for March!!! Northeast Comic Con has moved to Mar 4th/5th in Hanover. It has been added to the calendar, once we have more details, we will update. PAX East!!!! - I know we have a booth, and exhibitor badges. Location will be on the floor again like last year. Once I have final details we will update the calendar. Anime Boston - 3/31-4/2 - We have our normal space in the gaming room. More details to come. Spring Supermegafest - Will know more in a couple weeks if we will have a space at Spring Megafest, stand by. Looking forward to another amazing year with all of you amazing folks.

  17. How's it going Albuquerque Extra Lifers! It has been much too long. I have more than a few things and plenty that I need help with moving forward. Let's talk about Las Cruces Comic Con! LCCC will be the weekend of September 9th from Friday through Sunday. Location : 680 E University Ave, Las Cruces, NM 88001 Arrival times will be Friday September 9th at 2 PM and departure from the event will be Sunday September 11th at 6 PM Departing Albuquerque at ~ 12 PM Friday and arriving back to Albuquerque on Sunday at ~9:30PM You will be responsible for your own lodging and meals All normal "con" rules apply If you wish to cosplay make sure it is family friendly and think if you can wear it to the Children's Hospital visits, it is OK to wear while working at the con. I am making myself available in order to not only travel to the event but to work most of the weekend. We cannot provide lodging or transport, however, Cruz will be attending the event for most of the weekend and we are looking for other Guild members who may already be planning on attending or can cover their own lodging needs for Friday and Saturday nights. The con directors will be providing us with booth space as well as two passes for the Guild members currently working the Extra Life Albuquerque booth. Anyone not working the booth is subject to an entrance fee for the day. We are working on getting power donated by the facility. I think this would be a great opportunity for Guild members to visit other Extra Lifers in different parts of New Mexico as well as show our friends down south that we are looking forward to their efforts and raising funds alongside them as we get closer to the November nationwide event! If you are interested in going to the event and helping us with coverage for the weekend or have any other questions about the event get in contact with @omni_prime, @GeneraLedger, or @islander. There will be an excel google doc link to follow in order to work "shifts" out so that we don't get overwhelmed by the time at the event. Think mornings, lunch, afternoon, and evenings. Thanks as always guys! @omni_prime

  24. Every year, a 24-hour fundraising event is held to raise money to help sick kids and their families who utilize the services at CHEO. This event is the CHEO Telethon, broadcast each year on CTV - hold up, did you think I was talking about Extra Life? Well, this year, Extra Life is joining up with the CHEO Telethon and we're getting our game on early at the EY Centre! That's right, the Ottawa Extra Life guild is looking for dedicated gamers of all persuasions to join us for 24 hours of gaming fun at the EY Centre during the CHEO Telethon! Consider it a practice run for Game Day, if you will! Have you got what it takes to game for 24 hours, knowing that your Hour 20 mugshot might end up on live television? We're still working out some of the logistics of our event, but we're anticipating room for approximately 20-25 people to help show Ottawa what Extra Life is all about. We'll have couches and consoles, computer stations waiting for your beast of a PC, the most perfect tabletops for intense Carcassonne sessions or pen and paper campaigns... If you want to play, we'll do what we can to help! Let's turn this into a discussion about what kinds of games you would want to do during the telethon, and what you would need to be comfortable for a marathon of Extra Life proportions! So when exactly is the Telethon? Gaming Setup - Saturday, June 4th: 4:30 PM - 6:30 PM Telethon - Saturday, June 4th to Sunday, June 5th: 7:00 PM - 7:00 PM Clean up - Sunday, June 5th: 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM So, with that all out of the way - will you join us? Are you a veteran Extra Lifer that wants to join us in gaming up a storm? Are you new to Extra Life and want to game with a group just as enthusiastic as you are? A word of warning - Though our area is not anticipated to be directly filmed, participants may be involved in the 2015 Extra Life cheque presentation or interviews, which will be shown on LIVE TELEVISON. We are also planning on streaming our side of the event live on Twitch.TV. This event is not for the camera-shy among us. Please respond to this post, or send me a message, and let us know if you want to participate. At this time, everybody who participates is expected to stay for the duration of the event - barring unforeseen circumstances, of course. There will be food available (more information to come later), and we will confirm shortly regarding personal snacks/drinks. All participants must be already registered for Extra Life 2016 - as Community accounts are not directly linked to your fundraising page, I will be contacting everybody who is confirmed to be attending to find their account. This is so that we can accurately track the fundraising of participants during the telethon while we discuss our initiative live on TV! Come on! Get your game on! TL;DR : 24 Hour CHEO Telethon = 24 Hour Extra Life event! What do you want to play? What do you need to make this a fun, successful weekend?

If you are interested in going to the event and helping us with coverage for the weekend or have any other questions about the event get in contact with @omni_prime, @GeneraLedger, or @islander. There will be an excel google doc link to follow in order to work "shifts" out so that we don't get overwhelmed by the time at the event. Think mornings, lunch, afternoon, and evenings. Thanks as always guys! @omni_prime
