  1. 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?
  2. 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

  11. Does anyone have Superfight and plan on (or is interested in) streaming it on Game Day? I got a code in Loot Crate and figured it would be a great game to get a group of Extra Lifers together and have all of us stream it. Here's a link to a game play video on Steam if you don't know what the game is: If we can't get at least 4 people to play it then I'll just use it as a donation incentive give away, so no worries! Let me know if you're interested in playing for an hour or two during your marathon!

  19. OK here is the new plan for game day. @Xeseroxfeel free to add something if I missed it or if you want to redo it but I thought I would mention it now. We will be trying to do the game day from home this time. I know... how can I play games online with all my new friends and make new friends?!? Thanks to our fine President Fox, we were going to do a Skype or hangout or something to chat while we played games. How are we going to do this you ask?? By using Board Game Arena . This nifty little site will let you play board games online! How neat is that. I am not sure on the timing yet but we were still going to do it this Saturday on April 16th. Time : TBA . I have a previous engagement that day but if it later in the day like evening time I should be home to play some games. I hope this can work out and hope this will be fun as well. Ok all. We were going have a game day on April 16th. Our plan was to have it a different location this time. This was trying to hopefully encourage some people from other locations to go seeing how the hospital is in the center of Albany. Did anyone have any suggestions? Our backup place would be the at the Center Building where we had it last time.
  20. HELLO EVERYONE!!! I know we were trying to do a Game Day in March and I kind of forgot about it until today and I apologize. Time slipped away with work, family and school work. I hope this won't be too last minute for everyone. I was hoping we could try and do a game day Saturday March 19th. I was looking for some input from anyone that might interested in wanting to have some fun. I was wondering if everyone wanted to do a game day again at the hospital and play some board games, table tops, etc like we did last time. Maybe go bowling instead. Or any other idea we might be able to do. Feel free to add an idea here or message and we can try and work on this. If not maybe another day this month! Thanks everyone!!
