  1. It has been a long day in the mines. The village hired you and your party to investigate a series of digger disappearances in the deepest parts of the mine. Of course, once you found out that the mine served as the ancient entrance to a mind flayer lair, your contract obligated you to put a stop to the mind-eater’s machinations. Between the giant spiders and the inky darkness of the mines, it wasn’t an easy battle. In fact, the encounter with the flayer itself proved a struggle that nearly cost everyone their lives. In the end, you all managed to scrape by and return to the surface. The reward for this feat will surely bring in a pretty gold piece or two, but the real prize is the town’s inn, The Red Dragon Inn, the best place to laugh and drink possibly in all the land. The Red Dragon Inn isn’t just a fantastical place for adventurers to kick back and relax, it’s also an insanely popular tabletop board game. Developed by SlugFest Games, The Red Dragon Inn tells the story of what happens when the quest has finished and the heroes have a chance to unwind. The open and simple design allows for players to get into the game on whatever level they’d like. This has enabled the game to reach a wide and enduring audience that has supported the many expansions to the base game through Kickstarter crowdfunding campaigns. The rules of the game set up a scenario in which anywhere from 2-4 adventurers (expansions enable more people to play together) meet at the titular inn to have a good time and drink while spending their hard earned gold. The goal of the game is to be the last conscious player who still has gold. If your character becomes too drunk or loses all of their gold, they are out of the game. Each player’s turn consists of a draw phase, where they maintain seven cards in their hand. Following this, the player has an opportunity to take an action using an action card from their hand to either help themselves or backstab a rival. After an action is either taken or passed, the player must give another player a drink and then resolving the effects of their own drink. Each player has a fortitude and drunkenness meter; if they ever end their turn with their drunkenness greater than or equal to their fortitude, they lose consciousness. If a player passes out, their gold is divided between the inn and the remaining players. Other wrinkles to play also occur. For example, occasionally a player will play a card to initiate gambling. This causes normal play to halt until someone has won the pot with a good hand of cards or a dastardly cheat card. Some characters in the expansions also have their own unique mechanics that make gameplay even more interesting. Each player must have a character deck from either the base game or one of its expansions. Each character in The Red Dragon Inn has their own sets of strengths and weaknesses that are brought to life through their personalized decks. The characterization of the character decks have become such a staple of the series that some fans enjoy roleplaying the characters while playing to create unforgettable game sessions. Alternatively, some players find a deck that corresponds to how their D&D roleplaying might act in a tavern setting and bring their own flavor of role-playing to the game. In fact, due to the blending of social and fanciful elements in The Red Dragon Inn, players have invented all sorts of rule variants to make the experience more immersive. One of the most straight forward variants involves drinking actual alcohol along with the characters in the game. You can find the rules here, just be sure to be a responsible adventurer. Another variant involves giving the gold piece real money value to up the stakes for the rounds of gambling. Of course, for players looking to mix things up in a more official capacity, there are numerous expansions. Each officially numbered expansion set can be played on its own and contains four completely different character decks. As mentioned before, each character has their own set of strengths and different styles of gameplay. This means that any time a new character or set is introduced into play, the dynamics of the game shift dramatically, especially if those additional decks mean that there are more players taking part in the game. Each of these expansions adds additional rules and events as well, so it’s definitely worth looking through all of them to find the stuff that you think would make for the most interesting sessions. These numerous expansions have been made possible by the passionate community that has sprung up around the game. The series’ history of crowdfunding expansions dates back to 2013 and The Red Dragon Inn 4. Since then, there have been 9 different expansions, each shattering their fundraising goals. These include the fully numbered releases, duo hero deck expansions, and a spin-off game called The Red Dragon Inn: Battle for Greyport along with its expansions. Battle for Greyport sees the heroes from The Red Dragon Inn battling to defend the inn and town from dastardly villains and monsters – and you can try it for free if you find yourself inclined! Without knowing the rules, I was able to get The Red Dragon Inn up and running about 10 minutes after opening the box for the first time. Whether you’re taking on the role of Zot the Wizard with his sullen familiar Pooky, Gerki the conniving rogue, Deirdre the snooty elven priestess, or Fiona the unpredictable barbarian, you’re sure to have a great time at The Red Dragon Inn. If you think you might want to play The Red Dragon Inn while streaming during Extra Life 2019, you should reach out to SlugFest Games! They are currently running a promotional campaign to support Extra Life where they have developed a special card called Water of Life. If you reach out to them with your name, address, description of your livestreaming plans, and a link to your Extra Life fundraising page, they’ll send you a card of your own, as well as a number to distribute to stream viewers. 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!

  3. We here at Extra Life are pleased to announce a special collaboration with SlugFest Games, the creators of The Red Dragon Inn, High Noon Saloon, and Kung Fu Fighting! tabletop games. The fine folks at SlugFest Games have been longtime supporters of Extra Life. Their community has been passionate in its support of Extra Life, with members reaching out to the tabletop developer every year for assistance with streams and Extra Life events. SlugFest Games has been more than happy to provide that support. In an official announcement of our collaboration, SlugFest Games wrote, "We’re always pleased to see just how many of our fans are putting in the work to support their favorite charities, and we’re grateful that those fans invite us to be a part of that!" For 2019, SlugFest Games has something special planned that's sure to catch the attention of its tabletop gaming community. A unique promotional card is being offered by the company to Extra Life streamers. The Water of Life card was created as a limited time item for use with The Red Dragon Inn game! Fittingly, the card will give everyone a bit of extra life in-game when played. SlugFest Games will be sending the card to streamers interested in highlighting The Red Dragon Inn to give away to their viewers and donors. This is especially exciting to us with Tabletop Appreciation Weekend next month - maybe it's time to make some special board game streaming plans? If you plan on playing The Red Dragon Inn during any of your livestreamed Extra Life events this year, reach out to support@slugfestgames.com! Please include your name, address, a description of your livestream plans, and a link to your Extra Life fundraising page. The people at SlugFest Games will be happy to send you copies of the card to help with your events. If you aren't planning to livestream for Extra Life, be sure to keep your eyes peeled for tabletop streams from people in the board gaming community! Watching their shows, spreading their reach through social media, and donating to their causes could be your ticket for some Water of Life for your very own (as well as the good feeling from knowing you're helping kids in and around your community). Not sure where to find those tabletop streamers? Head over to SlugFest Games' Twitter or Facebook since they will be amplifying streamers in their community for the foreseeable future! Finally, we just want to say thank you to SlugFest Games who took the initiative to design and print these cards out of the goodness of their hearts. We also want to say thank you to The Red Dragon Inn community for all of the support they show us every year. It's incredible to see that passion turn into an actual part of one of the games Extra Lifers play regularly. You are all the best. We encourage everyone who hasn't registered for Extra Life 2019 to head over to our handy sign-up page.
