  1. Extra Life's partnership with Wizards of the Coast has been incredible over the years. This year, Wizards of the Coast managed the incredible feat of managing to raise over $1 million USD! They surpassed that momentous mark this year through the combined might of their D&D Super Team holding fundraising events throughout the year and the incredible efforts of their Magic: The Gathering team. A huge thank you to Wizards of the Coast and all the employees and creators who helped make this achievement possible! The D&D Super Team has managed to raise a a colossal sum of over $250,000 USD and is expected to hit $275,000 USD by the time the dust settles at the end of 2019. They reached that incredible number by kicking off a three month campaign with the Founders & Legends Day celebration on July 27, which featured Luke Gygax talking about the origins of tabletop roleplaying as well as several D&D one-shot games. With numerous streams and smaller events in between, along with the hard work of D&D players, DMs, and fans working to support their local hospitals, their last major fundraising push happened from October 31 through November 3 with Gamehole Con and on November 9 with Seattle Children's Hospital Game Day. Seattle Children's Hospital Game Day had Wizards of the Coast playing Dungeon Mayhem, the company's D&D-themed card game, and full-tabletop sessions for new players and kids. The other half of Wizards of the Coast's fundraising efforts belonged to Magic: The Gathering. The Magic community really rallied around Wizards this year between more people pitching in on Game Day and the debut of Ponies: The Galloping. Three official Magic: The Gathering cards featuring four of the most beloved ponies from My Little Pony debuted as part of a special collection benefiting Extra Life. The limited edition cards went on sale on October 22 along with a series of matching playmats, sales of which also benefited Extra Life. The playmats and cards sold out incredibly quickly, with the entire offering disappearing almost immediately. During the same time period, Magic: The Gathering auctioned off a series of coveted foil card sheets fresh from their printers. The sheets were sold for thousands of dollars per piece, giving die hard Magic fans a chance to own an irreplaceable piece of the game. In total between the Magic community and the My Little Pony crossover, Magic: The Gathering managed to raise over $875,000 USD #ForTheKids! However, 2019 isn't over quite yet! Those who still want to contribute to Wizards of the Coast's Extra Life mission can purchase one or more of the special modules that the D&D team has put together for Extra Life over the years. Past adventures and supplements include: Lost Laboratory of Kwalish, Volo’s Waterdeep Enchiridion, Tortle Package, One Grung Above, and The Lost Kenku. This year, the Wizards of the Coast team has outdone them selves and offered not one, not two, but THREE additional adventures and supplements that can be used to spice up your tabletop gaming sessions: Adventure with Muk offers an adventure into the Dankwood with the plucky Muk and his best friend Birdsquirrel on a quest to find an incredible treasure. Adventure with Muk is meant for all ages and can even be printed out and used as a coloring book! Infernal Machine Rebuild is a short adventure in a ruined clock tower that involves traveling to different times and planes of existence in order to reconstruct the legendary Infernal Machine of Lum the Mad, a fantastical contraption of great power... and great danger. Locathah Rising gives players a short adventure for 9th level characters and the rules for creating locathah characters, a race of fish people that make friends out of sea otters. They're great - and this is the only official way to get these fun, fishy dudes in your games! Remember, every purchase of each of these adventures benefits the kids, with all proceeds going to Extra Life! 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! View full article

  3. Wizards of the Coast kicked off their Game Day stream fundraising earlier today with Magic: The Gathering employees taking over the official Wizards of the Coast stream for several hours. The stream today ran from 9am through 12pm PT and featured Magic: The Gathering Arena, Magic: The Gathering Online, and a heaping helping of goofery. The team at Magic: The Gathering plans to do this each day this week during the lead up to Game Day to help build hype for their efforts to raise money for Seattle Children's Hospital. The official Game Day streaming plan for Wizards of the Coast kicks off on November 2 at 3pm and will go until midnight. During that time, every person who sends a donation of at least $20 USD to the Magic: The Gathering team will receive a code for Magic: The Gathering Online that contains one each of the following: An alternate art shock land (chosen from Blood Crypt, Temple Garden, Godless Shrine, Watery Grave, Hallowed Fountain, Sacred Foundry, Overgrown Tomb, Steam Vents, Stomping Ground, and Breeding Pool) 1 nontradeable Ajani, Extra Life Mascot Avatar 1 nontradeable Twilight Sparkle, Princess of Magic and Friendship Avatar You can also contribute toward the fundraising goal by purchasing fun gear like shirts, pins, stickers, and playmats from the Magic: The Gathering's special Extra Life Pro Shop. They all come branded with an image of Ajani, Magic: The Gathering's Extra Life mascot! All profits from those sales will go to Seattle Children's Hospital. If you want to get even deeper into the spirit of Game Day, you might want to consider forming a streaming team under the larger Magic: The Gathering super team! Form a team of up to six people and compete to see if you and your friends can raise more money for your local children's hospital than others across North America. If you can make it into the Top 8 teams under the Magic: The Gathering super team, you will be granted codes for yourselves and your audience that open an early-access premium card style for the Inspiring Veteran card. Be sure to catch the streams throughout the rest of this week and Game Day. You will be able to find the streams themselves over on the official Magic: The Gathering Twitch channel: https://www.twitch.tv/magic Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  5. As part of Wizards of the Coast's push for Extra Life 2019, they have unleashed a deluge of Magic: The Gathering products to raise money for Seattle Children's Hospital. We talked earlier this week about Ponies: The Galloping, a limited run of special My Little Pony cards and playmats bundled to raise money for Extra Life. However, Wizards of the Coast has a second fundraising initiative going on at the same time: An uncut foil sheet auction. When Magic: The Gathering produces cards to sell in game sections and stores across the world, those cards begin their journeys as part of a larger whole. The production facilities print the cards en mass as part of large sheets. Each sheet consists of 121 cards apiece. These sheets are then cut apart neatly into the individual cards with which Magic: The Gathering players are familiar. Uncut sheets don't often see the light of day, however the company has made a tradition of giving uncut card sheets on special occasions as prizes. For Extra Life 2019, Wizards of the Coast has created an auction benefiting Extra Life through eBay Charity. The fine folks at Magic: The Gathering have put up 22 uncut foil Magic card sheets for auction. 100% of what these auctions raise will be sent directly to Extra Life. Additionally, those who purchase the sheets can add a donation to the transaction. Many of the uncut sheets are of rare or mythic foil cards - or even alternate-art versions of well-known cards. One of the highlights of the auction is a foil sheet of rare and mythic cards from New Phyrexia. Another highlight is a foil sheet from the Throne of Eldraine card set featuring alternate artwork. This represents a rare opportunity to get your hands on a piece of Magic: The Gathering memorabilia while also helping support sick and injured kids across the US and Canada, so check out the auction and make your bids! This opportunity might not come around again. You can look through the entire selection of uncut card sheets on the eBay for Charity website. The auction began on October 23 and will run until November 2 at 11pm PT. Don't forget to sign up for Extra Life to help sick and injured kids in hospitals around the US and Canada by playing games!

  7. Wizards of the Coast has been a longtime supporter of all things Extra Life. This year, though, their Magic: The Gathering division has outdone themselves in a collaboration with Hasbro that resulted in official Magic cards based on several of the ponies from My Little Pony. These special cards will be packaged in a bundle and sold to benefit Extra Life from October 22 through November 5. Ponies: The Galloping aims to provide a fun and comprehensive experience for Magic: The Gathering players. The package includes three Magic cards featuring some of the most recognizable ponies: Twilight Sparkle, Rarity, Princess Luna, and Nightmare Moon (the latter two being featured on opposite sides of the same card). Each Magic card features a silver border and specific in-game instructions. Notably, Twilight Sparkle contains a reference to other My Little Pony cards that aren't currently in the game... intriguing! Magic players will be able to pick up the Ponies: The Galloping set through HasbroPulse.com during the limited offer. Each set will cost $50 USD, which might cause some hesitation even among fans. However, Wizards of the Coast has pledged to donate $30 USD for every set sold to Seattle Children's Hospital through Extra Life. If that wasn't good enough already, Wizards of the Coast has teamed up with Ultra PRO to create a bundle of special Ponies: The Galloping playmats for either Magic: The Gathering gameplay or use as mousepads. The bundle includes three playmats modeled after the cards, meaning one will be doublesided to showcase Nightmare Moon and Princess Luna. The mats protect cards during gameplay and feature a slip-resistant backside so they aren't moving around while in use. The playmat bundle will also be sold on HasbroPulse from October 22 through November 5 and will cost $100 USD, $80 USD of which goes to Extra Life. Finally, Wizards of the Coast will be donating the proceeds of sales from My Little Pony (and a flippin' rad Extra Life logo) sleeves on MTG Arena, their digital version of the card game. Additionally, during the official Wizards of the Coast stream on Game Day, those who donate $20 USD will be given codes for one of each in-game rewards: 1 random alternate-art land card (chosen from among Blood Crypt, Temple Garden, Godless Shrine, Watery Grave, Hallowed Fountain, Sacred Foundry, Overgrown Tomb, Steam Vents, Stomping Ground, and Breeding Pool) 1 nontradeable Ajani, Extra Life Mascot avatar 1 nontradeable Twilight Sparkle, Princess of Magic and Friendship avatar The Game Day stream during which this $20 USD offer is valid runs on November 2 from 3pm - 12pm. The stream will feature prominent influencers in the Magic community who have agreed to take part in a series of mysterious challenges. Wizards of the Coast teasingly says that if you want to learn more, you'll have to tune into the stream on Game Day.

  9. Wizards of the Coast is known for many different games, but the biggest two by far are Dungeons & Dragons and Magic: The Gathering. The company has long seen crossover between the two respective communities, though never to an overwhelming extent. The two games exist in fundamentally different genres, after all. However, Wizards of the Coast has taken steps to change that with their announcement of the Ravnica setting coming to Dungeons & Dragons. For the uninitiated, Ravnica was introduced to Magic: The Gathering in 2005 through Ravnica: City of Guilds, an expansion to the popular collectible card game. More details came out about Ravnica and its structure, denizens, and monsters in two subsequent expansions. This collection of cards gave the breath of life to a new world in the multiverse setting of Magic, a world consisting of one massive city ruled by ten powerful guilds that banded together to fight the threat posed by an undead scourge that began ravaging the planet-sized city. Each guild serves a specific purpose in the world, from scientific research to overseeing criminal activity, and they tend to despise members of the other guilds. It's a boiling cauldron of rivalries, grudges, and intrigue; perfect for a group of adventurers to cause a little trouble. If that setup sounds like it would be right at home in a session of Dungeons & Dragons, Wizards of the Coast agrees with you. Later this year, the publisher plans to release a book detailing how one would create a campaign in the iconic Magic: The Gathering setting of Ravnica. Not only is this a big deal for people who love both Magic and D&D, but it presents a good opportunity for those who have only played one or the other to get a taste of the other side. If successful, the Ravnica setting could open doors to even more planes from Magic: The Gathering making their way into official Dungeons & Dragons books. Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica releases on November 20 in hardcover and will run about $50. Maybe we will see Wizards of the Coast run a one-shot through Ravnica on Game Day? We can only hope.

  12. Greetings Albuquerque/NM Extra-Lifers! This year is rolling along and not showing signs of slowing. I say let's race the cart instead of just getting on board! We have a great opportunity coming up very soon as it pertains to Grand Prix Albuquerque. What is Grand Prix Albuquerque? I'm glad you asked. It is a three day Magic: The Gathering mini-con for competitive MTG Players! Currently the website is showing about half of their capacity as signed up for the event 670/1250 (as off my typing this post). This means there is a large group of gamers, some of whom I would guess may play video games as well. Point being, let's jump at this opportunity to see if we can make a recruitment splash towards our goal! I will email Cascade Games, LLC who is running the event and ask for some donated booth space. This would be a great way to reach out to a large number of gamers at an event close to home! More to come, prime out
