  1. Wha t is Extra Life? Extra Life, a fundraising program of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals®, leverages the passion of the gaming community to rally support for our 170 member hospitals. Participants fundraise year-round and pledge to game for 24 hours with one goal: to save and improve the lives of sick and injured kids. Since 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $40 million for member hospitals. https://youtu.be/D7kfCS0ruhc How to participate Sign up: Pledge to play games from your home or online. Play during the 24-hour marathon (Nov 4th) or on any day that works for you! Fundraise & Recruit: Ask your family and friends to donate to your fundraising. Create a team and recruit others to join you! Play games, heal kids: Raise funds, have fun, and help heal kids at your local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital! Why support Extra Life and CMN Hospitals? More than 10 million kids enter Children's Miracle Network Hospital across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care. Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has helped fill those funding gaps by raising more than $5 billion, most of it $1 at a time through Miracle Balloon icon campaigns. Extra Life is among various programs that support the nonprofit’s mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.

  3. Sometimes the people you talk to think that the only board games that exist are Monopoly, Sorry, and Trouble. Because of this, it can be hard to get people interested in board games. I've been lucky enough to work with people who have relatively large game collections, so we've found games that work for our group. We've also tried getting other coworkers interested in gaming with us. A good way to do that is to start off with some quicker, lighter games. Since we typically play at work, the only real time we have is our lunch break. We're blessed with a full hour, but we still try to find games that can be played in 30-45 minutes. That gives us time to get food, eat, set up the game, play it, and then tear it down. Sometimes, the games are short enough that we can play multiple rounds. Here are some (quick) games that I'd recommend to get others interested in games even when you don't have much time: Celestia A fairly simple push-your-luck game. The premise is that you're going through a series of adventures and the more fulfilling (read: longer) your adventure, the more points you can get. Everyone gets to take a shot at being captain and passenger, and it's a good time all around. Codnames / Codenames: Pictures Another simple game where you can work in teams. Each team has a Code Master that is trying to get them to guess the correct cards and reveal all of their agents. The Code Master is only allowed to give a one-word clue followed by a number, which is the number of cards that the clue can point to. The first team to correctly guess the location of all of their agents without accidentally picking the Assassin wins. Saboteur / Saboteur 2 This game is one of my favorites. Everyone is a mining dwarf trying to get to some hidden gold. There are also some Saboteurs in your midst that are trying to prevent you from reaching that very gold. Everyone plays a card, then draws a card, ideally building a path to the other side of the board. I highly recommend picking up Saboteur 2, which is actually an expansion, because it adds teams and several new roles. Good Cop, Bad Cop Everyone in this game is either an Honest cop or a Crooked cop. Two players are the Agent and Kingpin respectively. This is a deduction game where players are trying to find and kill either the Agent or Kingpin, depending on your allegiance. The game gets fun when either one is found and suddenly cards come out to alter the allegiance of the other players. I recommend picking up the Undercover expansion as well. BANG! One person is the Sheriff, several players are Deputies, one person is a Renegade, and several people are Outlaws. Another deduction game that we love to play. This game involves shooting first and asking questions later while you try and figure out who is on your team. The Sheriff and Deputies are trying to get rid of the Outlaws, the Outlaws are trying to get rid of the Sheriff, and the Renegade is trying to get rid of everyone except the Sheriff until the very end. Tsuro / Tsuro of the Seas This is a very casual board game. Everyone has their own piece and all you do is play a card and follow the path. The goal is to stay on the board as long as possible. If you run off the edge of the board or crash into another player, you're out. Love Letter / Love Letter Premium This is a personal favorite. The idea is that you're trying to get your letter to the princess by having it passed along through the many people she interacts with. Each card has a special ability such as making you immune to other effects for the round or comparing your hand to another player's hand. If two (or more) players are left when the deck runs out, the player with the highest value card in their hand wins. I recommend the Premium edition because it adds support for four more players and adds a lot of exciting new cards. Mascarade This is another deduction game, but it's not quite the same as games like The Resistance or Werewolf. Everyone has a card that has an ability on it. Throughout the game, you will be swapping cards with other players and trying to keep track of who has what ability. Some abilities give you gold, while others let you add some chaos by moving other cards around. The first person to 13 gold wins. Spyfall / Spyfall 2 Spyfall is a good game if you're looking for something you can play in 5-10 minutes. A bag of cards is picked, and all but one of the cards in that bag has a location (each card has the same location) as well as a role on it. For example, you might have a set of cards that say Bank and one of the roles could be Banker or Thief. You go around asking each other questions, but you don't want to give too much information away. Ideally, you get answers that let you know who else knows where everyone is located. If the Spy, who does not have the location on their card, figures out the location, they win.

This year, we are going to be capping off each day with a podcast discussing the news of the day with the talented bunch of people we've collected to cover the year's biggest gaming trade show. Day three covered a lot of ground between Ubisoft and Sony. The two industry titans threw out some pretty exciting announcements, like a completely overhauled Shadow of the Colossus for the PS4 and confirmation that, yes, Beyond Good & Evil 2 exists. Jack Gardner, Marcus Stewart and Naomi Lugo cover the basic, need-to-know announcements from the day. Kick back, relax, and enjoy the show with us! View full article

  13. Fragforce's Second Annual Arcade Night was a hit! Thanks to the generosity, Banyan Street Capital, they were able to use the building's conference room for the arcade night. Guests brought food to share and they mixed things up with drinks and milkshakes. They had over 30 attendees, raised over $400, and had fun doing it. Gamers from Salesforce, Year Up, and friends came together to have fun and help the kids through games ranging from Jeopardy, to Rock Band, and Smash Brothers, to Evolution.....all #FTK.

  20. Saw this while scoping the forums. Thought y'all would find this useful!
  21. February has come and gone, leaving us with great announcements from the past month and some events coming in the near future.

Community Update In just the first two months of 2017, over 4,500 people have registered to participate in Extra Life. Together, we have raised over $214,000 for the kids and we still have 10 months left in the year! If you want to take your fundraising to the next level, we’ve created some useful apps to help you reach more people than ever before. Who thinks we can raise over $10 million this year?! PAX East is coming up March 10-12 and the Boston Guild will be on site registering interested attendees. If you’ll be there, make sure to wear some Extra Life gear and swing by booth #10046 on the show floor to say hi. You can chat with other Extra Life community members and snag an exclusive Extra Life button (while supplies last). A huge thank you to Bandai Namco who, earlier this month, chose to support Extra Life through Humble Bundle with the Humble Bandai Namco 2 Bundle. Thank you to those who bought the 169,491 bundles and helped to raise $174,000 #ForTheKids. If you love Humble Bundle, you can actually select Extra Life as your charity of choice for all future bundles with one click. International Tabletop Day looms on the horizon.

  23. A bunch of friends and I just found out about this last year and we thought it was good idea. This is my second year doing extra life still trying to figure out how every thing works. My friends and I have decided we had a blast doing Extra Life last year that we want to help out this year. My moms friend introduced it to me and asked if I wanted to be on his team. We are a bit younger group about 10-16. We rose some money for a bunch of teens trying to help over $100. This year my friends and I are going to try and get more involved and try to meet our goal of $800. This year we hope we can be more organised. Last year we started at the end of October and lots of people couldn't come or help out all 24 hours or couldn't even come at all. This year starting really early to get a head start. I'm glad that Extra Life has found a way to raise money with interesting kids to help out as well and many others who like video gaming. I hope we have a great year!!
