  1. Hey ABQ Extra Lifers! Welcome to 2019 and a new exciting year of helping out NM kids in need! We are looking to set meetings up for Wednesday evenings with the potential for hosting our monthly meetings. Current events that I am working to secure space at include: State Fair, Balloon Fiesta, Conjikan, Sabakucon, New Mexico Comic Expo. If you have any contacts, please send them my way and feel free to preface a conversation from the Albuquerque Extra Life Guild President for donated space at such events. Also, I am the founding Advisor for UNM Esports, slowly I have been building towards the idea of an SGDQ type 24 hour marathon at UNM someplace for Game Day 2019. More to come on that! Thanks all, let's make this the best year yet. P.S. Join the Extra Life Discord --> We are in the #western-us-extra-lifers channel
  2. We have about 17 people getting together under one roof for our marathon (which usually gets extended to around 30 hours because it's amazing!). A private facebook page was set up for those attending with a google.doc to help organize who is bringing what food/tables/games/chairs/etc... This year we are starting the night with a 2 hour fully interactive murder-mystery game for all players! The focus will then switch to board games (if you aren't aware, thinking board games are "Scattegories, Catan, or Monopoly".... that is like thinking video games are "Duck Hunt, Crash Bandicoot, and Pong". Board games have evolved just as much as video games-- check out BLOOD RAGE if you don't know ?). We will have a supply of approximately 130 board games to choose from at our event. We also have downgraded to 1 console for video-gaming system (for a few group video games) because we have found video games reduce sociability, fun, and tend to make you much more tired. Food will include chicken skewers, homemade meatballs, veggie trays, spicy chicken, bratwurst, cereals, various breakfast meats, nutrient bars, pretzels, flavored seltzer waters, juices, water, and various other snacks. We've done this 6 years now and found that eating "meals" is WAY better, energizing, and much more beneficial than just snacking on chips and candy. I, personally, am hoping to get into some games of Blood Rage, Roll Player, 7 Wonders, Terraforming Mars, Kingsburg, Captain Sonar, and many more! What do you guys have planned for game day?
  3. 1. Numbers Money Raised - $13,734 (up $1,350 from last month) Participants - 142 (up 22 from last month) 2. Game Day with Kids Next game day will be November 7th from 12-2. December's will be on the 5th from 1:30 - 3:30. 3. Game Day November 3rd We need EVERYONE to go and fill out the registration form for Game Day ASAP! Setup on Friday is 3 p.m. - 6 p.m., 9 a.m. on Saturday. We're gonna look into possibly getting a Uhaul so we only have to make one trip to Dell and back for loading. Matt won't be able to do the stream this year, but we might still be able to use his equipment. As soon as we know who all will be attending and who wants to stream, we can set up a decent stream schedule and schedule of events. Speaking of schedule we'll put them into 2-2.5hour blocks with breaks and announcements every 4-6 hours or so. Comcast will be providing 2Gig internet!!! So we shouldn't have any internet problems that we've had in the past! We talked a lot about giveaways and donations incentives and pushes. Here's what we have so far: -Whoever raises the MOST throughout the whole event - Two tickets to DreamHack Atlanta -Whoever donates the most (does not have to be at the event) - LG Ultrawide monitor -Donation push with VandyLan -Whoever raises the most after 12 hours (10 a.m. - 10 p.m.) pies whoever has raised the LEAST in the face. Same in the final 12 hours. And wins Discord/DreamHack swag -Night Owls - Whoever raises the most between midnight and 8 a.m. wins a copy of Black Ops 4 -Gift cards from Gamestop, McKays, The Game Cave, The Rabbit Hole, Food gift cards. If anyone has connections with anyone that could donate in-kind for these giveaways please reach out ASAP! We'll have posters printed soon to spread EVERYWHERE! We don't have another guild meeting before Game Day, but we will most likely have a Discord call meeting between now and then so please make sure you're on the channel!
  4. 1. Numbers Money Raised - $12,384 (up $85 from last month) Registered - 120 (up 20 from last month) 2. Game Day with Kids Today's was great! Microsoft came and brought volunteers. Microsoft also donates per volunteers so we got $200 from that alone. They brought the portable Xbox's with small displays. This would be something really great for us to have permanently if we could get funds or donations for. They'd be more practical than having the big monitors and consoles. We've also been talking with Child Life about portable equipment that can be used in patient rooms. 3. Grand Ole Gameroom - November 9 - 11 So the event this year is going to have some esports tournaments and gaming outside of arcade games. We've been asked if we'd like to participate somehow so we're going to be the "official" partner for the Fortnite tournament. We need to figure out exactly how we want to utilize this and be present in it. We could charge a couple extra dollars which would go to Extra Life. We're probably not going to actually TO the event but we need to have as much presence there as possible. This IS the weekend after Game Day but please try to sign up to come if you're available that weekend. 4. Mid-Week Jam with Platforms - Every Wednesday Platforms is doing a "Mid-Week Jam" tournament every wednesday. Typically it includes Rocket League and Mario Kart and possibly some others in the future. One of the owners, Luke, said he would be willing to get us involved in it somehow. Typically they charge $5 for entries so we discussed possibly charging $7 and the extra $2 goes to Extra Life. Luke said they've had upwards of $20 every week. This might not be a lot of money coming in but it's at least something and it's exposure and recruitment as well. Right now we're going to partner for the Oct. 10th Mid-Week Jam and see how it goes, possibly do this once a month or maybe more in the future. We'll have advertising details and more about this soon. 5. Maker Faire - The Wondr'y October 6th-7th. Setup October 5th 5 p.m. - 7 p.m. We've secured a booth at the Maker Faire again this year. We'll have a table and we'd like to have some monitors and games setup. We need as many volunteers as possible, this will be a great opportunity to advertise Game Day for streamers and recruitment for signups. Please signup if you're available to volunteer. 6. Game Day - Tech Hill Commons November 3rd As we've discussed previously, we're making this years Game Day exclusive to streamers, guild members and sponsors. Essentially the main goal of Game Day is to raise money, how do we do that? Primarily by live streaming. Now we need to figure out the best way to execute it and publicize it to streamers in Nashville and Tennessee. We've had issues in the past where we're having to "babysit" our equipment because the event has been opened to the public so we're also doing this to limit any of those issues. While everyone should be fundraising throughout the year anyway, we'll be using this as a celebration, along with a big fundraising push. Marcus has put together a *short* "application" that we will use to vet people that are interested in coming and streaming for the event. We'll set a fundraising goal that every member will have to raise by Game Day (something like $5 or $10). We'll also set a streaming requirement, like you must stream for at least 2 hours or something. Everyone must bring their own equipment, we'll still try to have monitors from Dell so if you're bringing consoles you won't have to bring your own. We'll be utilizing the Extra Life Nashville live stream again and we'll still have Miracle Families come and speak, it just won't but fully opened to the public. We're having a planning meeting TONIGHT September 17th at 7 p.m. on the Discord channel. I apologize that this is such a late notice but if you're interested in helping with planning and logistics please try to be present. I'll be sending out notes from tonight and we'll probably have another meeting in a week or so. 7. Game Stop Initiative As you've probably seen Game Stop is doing a push with Children's Miracle Network right now. If you have the chance please go by your local store and thank them for their support! 8. Next Meeting - October 3rd at Tech Hill Commons at 6 p.m. Don't forget to join our discord channel and like us on facebook !!

  8. So, despite all the personal stuff that caused me to be away for most of the summer/fall, I want to say how amazed and proud I am of all of you. We did some amazing things this game day, and here's the proof: City State Hospital Fundraising Participants October 30th 3pm CST: MILWAUKEE WI Children's Hospital of Wisconsin $47,268.00 529 November 6th 3pm CST: MILWAUKEE WI Children's Hospital of Wisconsin $106,413.00 724 But we aren't done yet. We have until December 31st to get donations in. Cash donations, check donations, or real-time through the site. Take your rest from game day, but let's all commit to one more push #ForTheKids this holiday season. I'm open to planning a meetup, or simply gaming online; but let's give it one final shot to see how far we can go. -Joshua
  9. ExtraLifeTO is on Twitch!

We're looking for people who would be interested in participating by streaming their content on a scheduled basis. If you're interested in helping out with either streaming, moderating or help out in any other way, comment below! There's also been discussion about streaming during our 24-hour game day marathon.

  12. Lets raise money for Sparrow Children's Center! I see there hasn't been much going on this guild for a little while, but I would like to change that for this event. If anyone is interested in forming a Lansing-based team post here so we can coordinate.
  13. Hey peeps, I know we have a ways to go still before game day and I know not everyone will be around on Nov 4th due to BlizCon. However, I was thinking that maybe part of our marathons could be spent in a game as a guild? Maybe something like Minecraft, not sure what games we all have that would support everyone playing together. Just thought I would throw it out there for consideration :-) I remember seeing a thread elsewhere on the forums that there is a Minecraft server setup for Extra Lifers, I will try and track it down :-)
  14. Hey everyone! This year we want to start this process early so we can be sure everything is planned and ready to go for our Guild gameday this year. The location and exact day will remain TBD for now, however we can all start planning what we want this day to look like. Should we have people going 24 hrs? 12 hours? What games do we have there? Should we accept donations and do a raffle? Should we provide food? These and many more are things we can discuss here to plan a fantastic event for the Orlando area. While planning will be happening over the next couple months, please don't hesitate to share your thoughts now. Thank you! EDIT: I should reiterate that this is currently a "just start spitting out ideas" phase and we will all curate them later. Assume the location will have enough room for at least 30 people and will have a solid internet connection.
  15. 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?
  16. 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
