  1. My Votes for After Dark. Just to check it out as a possible Marathon Location lol.
  2. Any other Canadians or anyone else other then Jamison have any success with this?

    It's Official Extra Life Winnipeg is taking a road trip! We will be attending PrairieCon 2016 in Brandon, Manitoba, Canada from June 3rd to June 5th, 2016! PrairieCon is a weekend long event which allows the Brandon and area gaming community to get together. The primary purpose is entertainment, and the main attractions are the tournaments and events. The mission of PrairieCon, which is a non-profit event, is to promote gaming as a form of recreation in the community, and by gaming we are referring to board games, role-playing games, collectible card games, miniature games and live-action role-playing games.

  5. I Extra Life to give back to the hospital that I stayed at when I had to have a 8 hr Jaw Surgery in High School to remove a cyst that had taken up 99% of the bone mass on my bottom right mandible. As of this year I added a new reason to Extra Life, Janelle a young 10 yr old Pokemon Fanatic I met who is currently under going treatments for Whilm's Kidney Cancer.
  6. Here's some more guidance: So if I can suggest a general flow for the panel -- - Who are you guys? - What is Extra Life? - How do you raise money? (follow-up q's re: services, back-end stuff) - Where does the money go? - Tell us some success stories. - How does the Extra Life organization coordinate everything? - How can we work with Extra Life ourselves? Assuming the panel's an hour or so, that'll be more than enough to fill it, leave space for audience questions, and lead nicely into possible signups and interest for you. this is what our producer came up with for the format of our panels @Sean Rooney
  7. My Gamertag ---> StressfulGengar
  8. Hey there @Stuartf! I think I am probably one of the better people to help in regards to this. (Just saw the date so I'm not sure if you ever got an answer to your questions.) In terms of Offline Donations the best thing for you to do is to get in contact with your hospital that you are raising money for. They will be able to help you get your donations counted. Since your hospital you are supporting is the one that eventually receives the money and then sends out the Receipts of Donation they may be able to help you send your cash donations to them, then they will work with Children's Miracle Network Canada in Toronto to have your donation totals counted on your online profile. This is also the most practical way to send in your donations without having to guesstimate the conversion rate from CDN to USD. Until Donor Drive Supports the CDN $ this is your best way to deal with offline donations from Canada.
  9. @Dj-Sparky For our guild in Winnipeg we make alot of our own designs (following the brand guidelines!) for Merch to help us promote Extra Life locally. You can also find alot of good things to start with in the Guild Toolkit (Click me to go to the download page!)
  10. @fluffnight did you ever get in contact with the Vancouver Guild itself? not sure if you are part of their leadership but they would be your best bet to start with in your area! Let me know if you haven't linked up with them I will help you get in touch.
  11. Anyone else starting to see double on these posts? First the User Account access issue and now the double Posting Problem.... Anyone else starting to see double on these posts? First the User Account access issue and now the double Posting Problem....
  12. Ive got Tabletop Simulator as well and would love to play with some people! Steam: hoodedarche0 Ive got Tabletop Simulator as well and would love to play with some people! Steam: hoodedarche0
  13. @CAWZY That is a very good idea to incorporate into the panel.... I will need to think about how to best showcase this to the wide range of people and levels of engagement/experience that they may have had with Extra Life.
  14. I love the ideas so far, Keep them coming! The Panel itself isn't until July so I've still got some time to work on it. Hoping that this eventually helps create an Extra Life Panel Template others can use when they get asked to host a panel.
  15. I'm still catching up on a massive, MASSIVE backlog of games that I have wanted to play, though I am so looking forward to the new HomeFront game. I loved the original game, as well as the unique multiplayer. I played the closed Beta of the game and it was awesome, making me more excited for the release of the full game. They've thrown out the linear approach from the last game to make it an open world game instead. What Games are people playing right now? What games are looking forward to play?

  17. [Takes this as a good time to take the idea and slip out before @AndrewRDU notices]............. I was litterally just messaging my Hospital Rep to see about getting some of those lol.
  18. Hey there everyone, So to give a brief overview, we have been asked to present 1-2 panels at our biggest events of our Extra Life Guild year on the topic of Extra Life. I have already found a video online that someone recorded of the panel "Gaming for Good" that was held at RTX last year (Extra Life Panel Recording). I have spoken with @LeaveIt2Beaver about it and have decided to follow that same format and topic. I wanted to see what the community would come up with in terms of things that you guys think would be the most important things to touch on during the panel. I've already got alot of things in mind for it but just wanted to open it up a awesome group of Extra Lifers So what do you think are some things you guys can think of for a panel on Extra Life? I look forward to seeing what you all think!
  19. I know someone who already has an In with Shaw. I will check with him about getting this setup and a thing. Lets talk more tonight.
  20. Sweet, I think we could get a couch from Oi! Furniture. I know the CEO/Owner, so then we would have a space. We could setup capture/streaming stuff, see if MTS or Shaw would be on board for this.
  21. Even better Idea.... How about I try to arrange it so if we do one during the late spring/summer/early early fall (before flu season) we try and work it so we do a marathon event from the Play Room at the hospital....
  22. Perfect way to approach this! If you don't mind I might want to join you with this endeavour. As I set myself the goal of getting $1000 as well this year XD
  23. I've been playing a multitude of games lately mostly because I sprained my ankle last week I'm finishing up Bioshock Infinite, Brutal Legend, and Papers Please. I have also finished a game called Gunpoint, Which I highly, highly recommend to anyone, Particularly those who love spy/action/thriller games. I have also been going back and playing some of my favourite older games just for the fun of it. I have also gone back and have been doing some more exploring in Fallout 4 and have come to understand what the lead developer was talking about having played the game for a very long time and still not having seen everything yet. Other then that just playing some newer games.
