  2. Okay Extra Lifers! Us Extra Life folks in Albany NY are looking for anyone in the places mentioned in the Subject! Why? Because our Hospital seems to have this HUGE reach and we want to make you all feel included in the guild! So drop a line here! Let us know who you are! Pittsfield, MA Bennington, VT The Adirondacks of NY Give us a shout in here!
  3. This is an idea that we are tossing around right now in our guild. I think it would depend on the college/university and their policies. We are currently trying to figure out who to get in contact with on each of the campuses to hang up fliers, and possibly set up recruiting sessions.
  4. Updated to reflect the changes made at our last guild meeting.
  5. Just to make sure they are all very clear! 1. Increase the number of participants for Albany by 21% 2. Have a lot of fun! 3. Teach Kait all about gaming! (She is a total newbie! Bless her!) 4. Have even more fun! 5. ???????? 6. Profit? (If that is even allowed to be said here. ) As our goals change, I will update them here. Feel free to comment.
  6. Getting this out a little later than I wanted to. Click Here <--- for the meeting notes. Within the next couple of days, we are going to be posting up a doodle to get a better idea of when to hold the April meeting. So that we can get a few more of you into the mix!

Hoping SOONISH.... as we need to well introduce ourselves to the guild, and get things rolling! Cheers,

Co Op games - Forbidden Island, Forbidden Desert, Castle Panic, Sentinels of the Multiverse Gateway Games - Settles of Catan (on xbox live arcade), Carcassone (Also on XBLA), Puerto Rico (on iOS also my specific Gateway game) Fantastic Quick Play games- Kingdom Builder, Machi Koro, Small World 2 Player games (just for you and the Mrs.) Dragonheart (wife kicks my arse at it all the time) Lost Cities I'm hoping we hear soon who the Leadership Board is.

    Justin, Do you know if this is open to the public, or just those that go to SUNY A? Mind you, it would be nice to get set up there, to help our guild, but I know some friends that might be interested in going, just to play some games. Cheers, Lucas Fox
  23. I am not going to lie! I stole Justin's Idea... (Original Post: Hello, I'm Justin) But rather than have a million and one pages announcing who we are, why not all in one thread! So first Thanks to Justin for the idea to introduce ourselves to the whole world. And second! Hello, I'm Lucas Normally most people call me Luke and just use my last name, Fox. I'm 34 years old and I am a Middle School Science Teacher at Bailey Middle school in Kingston, NY. On top of that, I am also a Video Game Journalist/Podcaster over at www.justpressstart.net (/shamless plug). I've been gaming since the early day of Nintendo and Atari. I was lucky enough to own an Atari 2600. Now my wife and I collect vintage Consoles. While I have been gaming for most of my life, I am noticing that I have been losing interest in video games and slowly moving to the board game and table top RPG section of gaming. Don't get me wrong, I still love to talk video games, but I am finding running my own table top RPGs is starting to be a big love of mine. I've been doing Extra Life since 2011, where My best friend Jeff and I found out about Extra Life a week before the event. In 2012 we ran our first event for Extra Life, and have been since. Each year our events get bigger and better and I couldn't be me proud. I've stayed with Extra Life for 4 years, because after that first year I started to find out that a few of my students had been treated at the Children's Hospital at Albany Med regardless of their ability to pay. And since a teacher's love for their students is a deep one, I felt this is how I could help those families, as well as any families of future students. Not only that, but this last Extra Life hit a little closer to home, as a podcasting friend's family had two of their children in the Children's Hospital in Atlanta for many months. The Children's Miracle network is a blessing, and I am proud to be helping them out with Extra Life. This year I am looking forward to being a part of the guild that Launched in Albany. Not only that, but I am also looking forward to holding another fantastic event for Extra Life. Hosting the events and bringing gamers together for good has been a very rewarding experience that I hope to continue for years to come!
