  1. Over the past three years, it has been incredible seeing Funko Games come out to support kids across the United States and Canada. This year, they've outdone themselves. The DDoS attack on Game Day was a major setback for many, but Funko Games' Stephanie Straw has decided to lead the charge in planning and hosting a make-up game night to raise money for Seattle Children's Hospital on Giving Tuesday, December 3rd. With limited space and killer prizes, the event at Funko HQ has already sold out, with all ticket proceeds going to local kids through Extra Life. However, the willingness to do not one, but TWO Game Day events isn't the only thing that sets Funko Games apart. The previous two years in which Funko Games participated saw their team raising over $35,000 USD. This year not only have they done a significant amount of fundraising, but they have incorporated Extra Life into their year-round plans and helped get the word out about Extra Life in a number of fun and unique ways. Back in June, Funko Games helped Extra Life out by helping to stock the incredibly popular Human Claw Machine with a wide array of their incredible Funko Pop! figures. In order to make the Human Claw Machine initiative work, we needed to have those prizes to create a draw. Funko Games really came through for us in that regard. Funko Games has their own podcast that talks about the biggest things the company is involved with, highlights important members of its community, and teases fun things coming in the future. Extra Life's own Brandon Llinas was invited onto the program for Episode 125 to talk about all things Extra Life. You can listen to Brandon expertly informing the Funko community about Extra Life over on Soundcloud or find the Funko Funkast on most major podcasting apps. Finally, Stephanie Straw was on the official Gen Con stream with Extra Life's own Lou Adducci. The duo, accompanied by Miracle Kid Ethan McKinney and host Maya Coleman, were able to introduce the world to Funko Games latest tabletop game, Funkoverse Strategy Game. Featuring tiny Pop! figurine representations of characters from all corners of pop culture, Funkoverse throws them all together into a fun battle of wits for all ages. It was amazing to be included in such a high-profile reveal. We were, and still are, thankful for the opportunity. Funko Games' last major Extra Life push will be their sold out Giving Tuesday Game Night event. However, if you want to support their fundraising efforts, you can always join or donate to their Extra Life team, Funko Games & Friends. Donations are accepted at anytime and count toward the year's fundraising total right up until the end of the year. It's never too late to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games! Donations for 2019 are accepted year-round!

  3. Later this week, thousands will descend upon the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis to celebrate tabletop gaming Gen Con from August 1-4. It being the biggest gathering of tabletop gamers in North America, Extra Life, of course, had to be there in a variety of fun and interesting ways! We will be present at the convention with a booth staffed by incredible volunteers from both the Indianapolis and Chicago areas. We’ll be registering new participants, taking donations, and sharing moments on our social media channels, so be sure to stop by and say hello if you are attending Gen Con! On top of that general presence, we also have a few events to keep an eye out for at the course of Gen Con. We will be kicking things off with a casual meetup on Thursday, August 1, for Extra Lifers to come together. Register for the event, which will be free to all and held at the High Velocity Sports Bar right next to the convention center. Network, chat, and enjoy yourselves! The event begins at 6:30PM and ends at 9:30PM EDT. We are incredibly excited for Extra Life and Funko to come together for kids at Gen Con this year. Extra Life’s own Lou Adducci as well as Extra Lifer and Funko employee Stephanie Straw will be live on Gen Con’s Twitch channel! You can catch them live at 12PM EDT on Friday, August 2. The stream will last an hour and will be highlighting Extra Life Miracle Child Ethan McKinney. Ethan underwent surgery on his heart at the age of 7 to treat patent ductus arteriosus, a condition that causes unoxygenated blood to flow the wrong direction. Ethan, Stephanie, and Lou will all be together playing the new Funko Game on the stream, so please tune in if you can! If you are attending the convention, we will be hosting a seminar with Ivan Van Norman from Geek & Sundry on Friday, August 2, at 5PM EDT. The seminar features Ivan, Lou, and local volunteers discussing how to use tabletop gaming for good through Extra Life. We’re really exciting to be working with Ivan again after he led an amazing panel on tabletop gaming at Extra Life United earlier this year. We are all incredibly excited for this year's Gen Con and the awesome people with whom we will be working. Whether you are going to Gen Con or not, there's something for everyone to enjoy from this year's convention. Here's to the year's best four days in tabletop gaming! One of the common misconceptions about Extra Life is that someone can only participate if they play video games. Not true! Extra Life supports and encourages all kinds of play. To that end, we have been supporting Tabletop Appreciation Weekend for the past few years. This year, the event takes place August 24-25th and will be a time for players to gather together and play board games for the kids.

  5. Some games stand the test of time and remain rooted in the public consciousness years after they've been introduced to the world. Team Fortress 2 and Portal both celebrate their 10th anniversary this year, both could be considered one of the best games of all-time. To celebrate the longevity of these franchises, Funko has planned to release collections of their Pop! figures for each game. Team Fortress 2 will receive figures of the Heavy, Medic, and Scout. Meanwhile, the Portal franchise will have a line of figures that include Chell (with the ever lovely Companion Cube), Atlas, P-Body, and a Turret. The puffy-headed figures will be available this October. In the meantime, you can see previews of the full line of figures over on the official Funko blog.
