  1. The studio behind the Blood Bowl franchise, Cyanide Studio, has announced that they will be making a turn-based tactical game out of the classic Warhammer 40K board game. So, what's a space hulk? These behemoths are essentially giant lumps of stuff that have mashed together after travelling through Warhammer 40K's version of faster-than-light travel. They can be a single, massive ship or dozens of ships and asteroids all stuck together for untold millennia. They're typically twisted by the experience, leading many who enter space hulks to either never return or emerge changed for the worse. In particular, there are a race of being found in space hulks known as Genestealers who can pose an existential threat to any being they encounter. Space Hulk was first adapted to video games back in 1993, received another game in 1995, and then sat dormant for over a decade until the release of the tactical indie game Space Hulk in 2013. Since that initial heart beat, we received Space Hulk: Deathwing in 2016 which abandoned tactics to focus on frantic FPS gameplay. Now it seems that Cyanide Studio wants to bring the series back to its tactical roots. Space Hulk: Tactics will house two campaigns from opposing sides. Players can choose between playing as the Terminator Space Marines tasked with exploring and cleansing an enigmatic space hulk or as the Genestealers attempting to wipe out the intruders into their domain. Cyanide Studio has said that both campaigns will have a heavy focus on narrative; I'm not sure how that will work on the Genestealer side, but I'm interested in finding out. The big addition to Space Hulk: Tactics is adapting the board game with the addition of cards that help to customize and upgrade your soldiers prior to each mission or match. They'll help players survive and possibly turn the tide of battle in a moment of desperation. There will also be an online competitive multiplayer mode, a map creation tool, and the ability to share maps online. Space Hulk: Tactics will release sometime in 2018 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. For those of you itching for more info, publisher Focus Home Interactive will be holding a press conference later this month to discuss the title at length. View full article

  3. CON SEASON 2017 HAS BEGUN! (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧ A few important changes in the way I'll be organizing events this year: I'm trying to set up DC Metro Area events this year, and we'll be bringing along any Children's fundraisers who would like to volunteer but can't due to the lack of a functional Extra Life DC Guild. I'm going to try to contain general discussion and questions about events to their event pages, which will make things easier for everyone to follow. RSVPing on events will be more important than last year because we have an influx of new volunteers and badges will be limited. I will be updating this thread throughout the 2017 fundraising season. For general information about upcoming events, this is your one-stop-shop. You can also follow the Calendar for our guild. Most event-specific details will be on the individual pages, which I'll be linking here. I will update the status of various conventions and events on this thread, and will be notifying you when additional events have been added. You should click on the Follow button at the top of this post to make sure you get updates. THIS THREAD WILL BE LOCKED TO REPLIES UNTIL AFTER GAME DAY, NOV. 4TH. Please address any questions, concerns, or suggestions regarding specific events on their page. If you'd like to suggest an event that we're not already working with, please send a PM to the following: @Sarah @NodnarbDude @Ceraph1216 CONFIRMED EVENTS UNCONFIRMED (BUT LIKELY) EVENTS WISH LIST EVENTS NEW EVENTS FOR 2018 IN THE WORKS Katsucon (February) Magfest (Various) Super Smash Con - looking into this for 2017 as well, but it conflicts with Otakon so will depend on volunteers and other resources Smithsonian SAAM Arcade at American Art Museum Awesome Con

    Open Play Weekend - Star City Games

    until
    COVERAGE This is our first time at a major Magic the Gathering event, and we're very lucky to have the support of an industry giant like Star City Games! Final details for this event will be developing this week. Please RSVP on this page if you intend to help, and comment with which times you are available. Further instructions will be provided throughout the week, and if you intend to volunteer and @Sarah doesn't already have your cell phone number, please PM it to her to coordinate badge/ID transfer. All volunteers will be provided with a laminated Extra Life Baltimore Guild 2017 ID Badge. This alone will not get you into events, but will help identify you as part of our group. You may keep your ID badge and lanyard to reuse at future events. PLEASE DO NOT TAKE BADGES PROVIDED BY THE EVENT HOME UNLESS OTHERWISE INSTRUCTED, as these badges may be shared among volunteers.. We are in need of volunteer coverage for the following windows: Saturday 7:30 am - 10:00 am includes setup, this shift is tentative and my begin earlier @Ceraph1216 (partial coverage for setup) 7:30 am - 8 pm includes setup and breakdown, end time is tentative and may leave earlier @Sarah 9:30 am - 1:30 pm @NodnarbDude 1 pm - 8 pm includes breakdown, end time is tentative and may leave earlier @Taco_Girl Sunday 7:30 am - 2:30 pm includes setup @Ceraph1216 10 am - 3 pm @LittleSith 12 pm - 7 pm @NodnarbDude 1 pm - 8 pm includes breakdown, end time is tentative and may leave earlier @Sarah PARKING Please plan on parking 1 hour prior to your volunteering shift. Traffic in the city gets heavy in the late morning. It may be harder to find unoccupied spaces in garages if the weather is nice. Please reference Google Maps to assist you in locating a parking garage close to the convention center. The Sheraton parking garage is most convenient and obvious as you turn in on Conway (not marked on this Maps search), however it fills up very quickly. Google Map of Parking Garages close to the Baltimore Convention Center Volunteers who will be driving to the convention will incur parking expenses. These parking expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Please be sure to request a receipt if you use cash-paid event parking. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. PUBLIC TRANSIT The Baltimore Convention Center has it's own light rail stop with service from the Red, Yellow, and Blue lines. MARC Trains run into Baltimore from more distant county departure points, and stop nearest to the Baltimore Convention Center at Camden Yards, which is a comfortable walking distance of several blocks. For further information about using public transit, please visit the Maryland Transit Authority website at https://mta.maryland.gov/. If choosing the Light Rail, it is suggested that you purchase a day pass. You can also message @NodnarbDude with public transit questions. IF YOU INTEND TO USE PUBLIC TRANSIT, PLEASE BE AWARE OF HOURS OF SERVICE BEFORE COMMITTING TO A SHIFT. Volunteers who will be taking buses or trains to the convention will incur transit expenses. These transit expenses will not be reimbursed, however they can be written off at your end-of-year tax return as volunteer expenses. Retain a copy of your receipts for your tax records. EXPLORING THE EVENT OR PARTICIPATION IN OPEN PLAY Before or after your volunteer shift, if your badge does not need to be handed off to another volunteer, you are welcome to explore the event. All provided event badges MUST be turned in to @Sarah, @Ceraph1216, or @NodnarbDude before leaving the Baltimore Convention Center. Badge hand-offs will be coordinated via group text message. If you participate in gameplay, please be sure to remove/conceal your Extra Life name badge. Before, during, and after your shift — especially every minute that you wear your event badge — you are representing Extra Life, Johns Hopkins Children's Center, and the Extra Life Baltimore Guild. Star City Games has generously waived their vendor fees for us in order to make it possible for us to attend and volunteer at this event. It is very important that we maintain a great relationship with the staff at Star City Games so that we can attend their future events. Remember, you are representing a children's charity. If you aren't sure whether or not a particular behavior is appropriate, please check with @Sarah. LUNCHES AND POTTY BREAKS If you need to take a quick bathroom break and you do not have backup coverage at the booth, please take any loose valuable items with you (i.e. laptops, tablets, cell phones). There will be a small lock box available in our booth as well. There are bathrooms conveniently located in the exhibition hall. If you have backup coverage at the booth and need to leave to get food or take a bathroom break, please be courteous and let the other volunteer know that you are leaving the table. Any food you may be able to purchase will be overpriced convention center food. It costs a lot, and doesn't taste great. It is strongly suggested to pack a lunch, snacks, and beverages if possible. SIGNING UP TO VOLUNTEER Please let us know when you can volunteer. I will update the event with confirmed volunteer names below the shifts they have agreed to work. We need one volunteer minimum per shift to start off with, however extra coverage during periods would be appreciated as this is a new event and we're not sure what to expect. For additional details, please message @Sarah, @NodnarbDude or @Ceraph1216. Volunteers will receive ongoing updates and instructions throughout the week and during the event. Thanks so very much for donating your time and energy for the kids!

  7. EXACT TIME WE WILL BE PRESENTING & RECRUITING TBD We will be briefly speaking to competitive Magic the Gathering players who will be fighting each other for a Pro-Tour spot, then assisting with sign-ups. Minimal volunteer staffing needed, would like one additional volunteer if possible. Many thanks to the generous support of Keith & Josh of Chesapeake Sports Cards for allowing us to speak at their event. Please RSVP if you are available to assist at this event. I will be working to secure more small, brief opportunities like this to spread the word with the tabletop community and it is expected that many local shops will be hosting release events on this same date. Current staffing (tentative): @Sarah Please contact @Sarah with any questions.

    We will be briefly speaking to Magic the Gathering fans who are coming in to pick up cards from the new set or play in a sealed tournament, then assisting with sign-ups. Minimal volunteer staffing needed, would like one additional volunteer if possible. Many thanks to the generous support of Keith & Josh of Chesapeake Sports Cards for allowing us to speak at their event. Please RSVP if you are available to assist at this event, or comment if you may be available for a similar release event at another location.

  9. Hello, fellow guildies! I am the new Extra Life Baltimore Guild Vice President. I am currently working on networking with events coordinators at local tabletop gaming shops. My hope is that we can get some (if not all) of these shops to allow us to show up at key gaming events like set pre-releases to talk to their gaming community and recruit Extra Lifers. I am currently working off of shops I know of as a MTG nerd, and supplementing my list with shops named on the Wizards of the Coast website. If this seems to be successful, I'm going to also reach out to some local video game resale shops and see if we can get volunteers posted for major releases. I'd like input and shop recommendations from any of you who are also passionate about tabletop gaming, or who know of some sweet local video game shops that are still trying to contend with Game Stop and the big box stores. I have already made contacts with the following shops and will be working further with their event coordinators: Chesapeake Sports Cards, Crofton, MD Family Game Store, Savage, MD Third Eye Games, Annapolis, MD Games 'n' Stuff, Glen Burnie, MD Squabbles, Glen Burnie, MD I am completely unfamiliar with anything north of Baltimore, so anyone's suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Most of the shops have expressed a great deal of enthusiasm thus far, and I think this could be a really great untapped resource for recruitment going forward. If all goes well, I'll be posting some additional upcoming events and looking for volunteers because I can't be everywhere at once on release nights!
