  1. Extra Life 2017 Game Day - Success!

    I am STILL dragging from nearly a week ago. Need. More. Coffee. But every minute was worth it. Extra Life weekend (Nov 4-5) brought in over $1.8 million for CMN Hospitals, bringing the overall fundraising total of Extra Life close to $7.8 million as of 11-9-17. We are stunned! Amazed! Honored! That is what we like to call, a success! The donations are STILL coming in too! We know that many of you are playing in the coming weeks, so we have a good feeling about 2017. If you came up short of your goal, no problem! There's still time to collect donations until 12/31/2017. Grab that loot too! Extra Lifers still have time to raise more funds and unlock some cool incentives! The end of Game Day weekend also brought forth the winners of the ESA Foundation Challenge . Congratulations to Seattle Children's Hospital for winning top fundraising hospital, and Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation for winning top hospital per capita! We are so proud of this community. You have really come through once again for the kids at Children's Miracle Network Hospitals across the US and Canada. Keep up the good work, we still have plenty of time to play games and heal kids!

  3. So, despite all the personal stuff that caused me to be away for most of the summer/fall, I want to say how amazed and proud I am of all of you. We did some amazing things this game day, and here's the proof: City State Hospital Fundraising Participants October 30th 3pm CST: MILWAUKEE WI Children's Hospital of Wisconsin $47,268.00 529 November 6th 3pm CST: MILWAUKEE WI Children's Hospital of Wisconsin $106,413.00 724 But we aren't done yet. We have until December 31st to get donations in. Cash donations, check donations, or real-time through the site. Take your rest from game day, but let's all commit to one more push #ForTheKids this holiday season. I'm open to planning a meetup, or simply gaming online; but let's give it one final shot to see how far we can go. -Joshua

  7. Game Day Collaboration?

    Hey peeps, I know we have a ways to go still before game day and I know not everyone will be around on Nov 4th due to BlizCon. However, I was thinking that maybe part of our marathons could be spent in a game as a guild? Maybe something like Minecraft, not sure what games we all have that would support everyone playing together. Just thought I would throw it out there for consideration :-) I remember seeing a thread elsewhere on the forums that there is a Minecraft server setup for Extra Lifers, I will try and track it down :-)
  8. Hey everyone! This year we want to start this process early so we can be sure everything is planned and ready to go for our Guild gameday this year. The location and exact day will remain TBD for now, however we can all start planning what we want this day to look like. Should we have people going 24 hrs? 12 hours? What games do we have there? Should we accept donations and do a raffle? Should we provide food? These and many more are things we can discuss here to plan a fantastic event for the Orlando area. While planning will be happening over the next couple months, please don't hesitate to share your thoughts now. Thank you! EDIT: I should reiterate that this is currently a "just start spitting out ideas" phase and we will all curate them later. Assume the location will have enough room for at least 30 people and will have a solid internet connection.
  9. Game Day Ideas

    Hey everyone, I know game day is still months away but I wanted to get a feel for how others will be taking part. For those of you that didn't make it out to the CoverMyMeds office last year, we had a small group playing one of the many games in the space. We've got somewhere around 45 games in the office and I have another 30-40 or so at home. My plan for this year is to do 25 hours of board gaming with anyone that wants to show up. If I can figure out the logistics (our network is being locked down a bit tighter this year), I'd also like to stream it. When we play games at CoverMyMeds, we track them in NemeStats so I was thinking that we'd make a new group in NemeStats and track all of the games for game day. I'm thinking that I can get everyone to chip in to some sort of prize pool, whether that's "Donate what you want" or "$25 per head" or some other system. At the end of the 25 hours, whoever has the most points gets the prize pool money donated to their campaign. If we get enough people (probably more than 8?), we can split the pool and have two (or more) groups with the winner of each group getting their portion of the prize pool. As of right now, I know I could probably play 25 hours of Betrayal at House on the Hill and we'd probably do 20 or so haunts. That being said, I will probably mix it up with other games that can support however many players we have in a given group. Longer games like Scythe, Small World, or Orcs Must Die: The Board Game could go over well. Does anyone else have any ideas, even if they are just in the early stages?
  10. Hey team! Just a reminder we're firing Game Day with the Kids back up tomorrow from 2-4 on the stage next to Seacrest Studios! If anyone available to attend come and play some games with the kids for a couple of hours! Our next guild meeting will be a couple of hours after that from 7-9 p.m. in the theater again. We've got a lot of stuff to talk about so be ready! I'm going to bring a couple of board games we can try to play before the meeting gets kicked off so if anyone's interested come early! See you guys tomorrow!! L
