  1. I would be interested in shirts. Logo on the font, text on the back. It would also be nice if we could get some webcomic artists to donate some designs featuring their characters. I know Penny Arcade runs their own childrens charity but VG Cats or Looking for Group would be awesome. PvP would be perfect, but I know that Scott Kurtz is tight with the Penny Arcade guys, so I don't know if that would work. Never hurts to ask though. There is a guy named Patrickspens ( who does a ton of shirts for Woot who would be an excellent designer. Rolls of stickers would be cool. You could have logo stickers, stickers that say I save lives and play games, that sort of thing. A repositionable vinyl sticker that says this machine saves lives, that people could put on their consoles and PC's. That is what I have for now, I am sure I will have more later.
  2. So this store is no longer working?
  3. I did some digging and found this blog post: It took me to this website: $27 for a shirt seems a but much, but according to the blog post, the money goes to the hospital closest to your billing zip code.
  4. I know that we can get a shirt for raising money, and that is great and all, but... It would be really nice if when I am out doing recruitment, or attending cons, or on walkabout, you know, to have Extra-Life gear on to promote and raise awareness. I made up a badge to wear when I am headed to or from work, I just turn it over to my work badge when I am at work. Is there a place where I can purchase branded gear? Shirts, hoodies, bags, hats, that sort of thing?
  5. We had an event with about 200 people attending. Lots of board games, some video games. This year is is going to be straight up board games, with the video games and PC stuff at a separate event. I was wondering if anyone had done anything with pre-event sign up sheets or anything like that. Generally we just do a free play sort of thing, with local vendors providing games to play. We had a "play it to win it" thing with a few games, which was very cool. People playing games filled out a sheet with their name and at the end of the event, a random player won the game. It really encouraged people to play games they would not normally play. I thought if people could sign up for games running in a time slot then we could get more game in the time we had. It seems that it would be easier to find players if they were all looking for a new game at set times. It would also make it easier for the people running games to go do something else if they don't have any players. I go to a game con in VT every year where they sign people up to run games beforehand, and then publish a booklet with a sign-up sheet in the back for you to send in. I always send mine in the very next day to ensure I get into the games I want. I don't think we need to take it that far, however do you think that a booklet with a list of games that people have agreed to run would be a good idea? Any thoughts?
