  1. We are winding down from Gen Con 2019 after an extremely productive time at the year’s largest tabletop convention in North America. We spent the weekend with the wonderful Extra Lifers from the Indianapolis and Chicago areas. Together, we managed to meet and talk with hundreds of people, inviting them to participate in Extra Life. However, we did more than just talk with con-goers. One of the highlights of the event for us was a portion of the official Gen Con stream starring Extra Life Miracle Child Ethan McKinney, Extra Life’s own Lou Adducci, as well as Funko employee and Extra Lifer Stephanie Straw, with Maya, the community manager for Secret Hitler, acting as the host of the show. Together, the four chatted about Extra Life, Ethan’s experiences going through treatment for his heart condition, and played Funko’s new tabletop board game, Funkoverse. You can watch the full segment on Gen Con’s Twitch archive. We also had a fantastic panel talking about how to use tabletop gaming to raise funds for children’s hospitals through Extra Life. That was headed by Ivan Van Norman, aka Hydra_Lord, and staffed by Ethan McKinney, Lou Adducci, and Mike Tyrian. Ivan Van Norman, featured on Geek and Sundry, led a panel at Extra Life United earlier this year, and it was a pleasure to work with him again at Gen Con. Mike Tyrian works with Magic: The Gathering, one of the biggest supporters of Extra Life out there. Hopefully panel attendees came away with new passion for gaming for a good cause. A huge thank you to all of the volunteers who turned out to help us make Gen Con 2019 unforgettable. We couldn’t do these events without your help. It was great being able to hang with you all at the High Velocity Sports Bar during our low-key meet up. This is a phenomenal community and we are honored that you choose to spend your precious time helping us to get money and care to kids who need help. Let’s take this energy and keep moving forward For The Kids. 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.

  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.
