Hello bgg! I will be hosting an event for the Extra Life gaming marathon on November 2nd and I want you to be there. You can see what the event is all about right here: http://www.extra-life.org
We'll be playing board games and video games from 12pm on Saturday until 1pm Sunday, as well as giving away 6 games thoughtfully donated by AEG and Stronghold Games to anyone who attends and donates. (via raffle)
The event is located in North Edmond. (Near Santa Fe and Coffee Creek) You can find the details/location at the facebook event page here:
or if you don't use facebook, just send me a PM or reply to this thread and I'll send you the details.
I've got a collection of nearly 90 boardgames to choose from, and anyone is welcome to bring their own games as well. (See my bgg collection here: http://goo.gl/fk2bx) We will also have PC, Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii (working on getting a Wii U) set up, and a projector wall setup for playing NES, SNES, Genesis, PS1, N64, etc.
There will be lots of opportunity to play some social games, such as Werewolf, 2 Rooms and a Boom, and Resistance, and this is the perfect opportunity to pull out that dusty box of Twilight Emperium!
All of the donations go to the Children's Hospital Foundation (http://okchf.org/), a local non-profit here in Oklahoma dedicated to the funding of pediatric research as well as pediatric care for Oklahoma's children. You can check out this event's own fundraising page here if you'd like to make a donation: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donordrive.pa...
Last year we raised over 300 dollars, and this year we want to raise 500 or more. I also want to get attendance up as much as possible, and get people interested in attending next year. I would love to build this event into a mini gaming convention for Oklahomans.
Currently we've received games from both AEG and Stronghold Games. They are:
and Crazy Creatures of Doctor Gloom
both from Stronghold Games
all from AEG
Any donations made on the site and in person will go towards raffle tickets for our giveaway. You can donate more for extra tickets, which you can put towards different games (possible to win more than one game), or towards one game to increase your chances. $5 will get you 1 ticket, with a sliding scale for additional tickets. (PM me for more details)
Thanks so much for taking the time to read this and learn about the event! I'd love it so much if you could attend, even if you are unable to donate this time. Similarly if you would like to donate but cannot attend, I really thank you for supporting a good cause!
