Hello, we are running our annual Extra Life fundraiser event at The Portal in Manchester, CT! Throughout the 24 hours we will be hosting ton of events, tournaments, and giveaways so be sure to make it down!

This will run from Nov. 5th 12am - Nov. 6th 12am, with the possibility of the store being open the day before. It's not guaranteed but you may be able to game for 36+ hours if you dare, granted the event doesn't start until midnight.

This year we already have planned the following tournaments:

-Codenames
-7 Wonders
-Dexterity Survivor (various dexterity games every round)
-and many more!

We also will be streaming the entire 24 hour event on Twitch on LateToTheTable and we will be collecting donations all day. Last year the store was packed for the entire 24 hours and we raised a total of $10k in a single day!

If you would like to help sponsor the event, feel free to email me directly at officiallatetothetable@gmail.com! We are always looking for more games to give away and host for tournaments!

More details will be released in the future! Including the event pages once they are up.

My friends and I are trying to figure out our EL Marathon for this year. We may do a "mobile marathon" and hit a few different spots playing at each, then ending with a last long session at home. I will definitely bring this up as an option when we meet next. What hours is your event running your event? Hopefully we can try to work it into the plan. We had done midnignt to midnight, 8am-8am, and 7pm-7pm before and haven't decided what hours we will run this year.

Also, grab an Extra Life microbadge, on me. mb

Thanks! Just added that sweet badge. But the event usually runs from 12am-12am, granted the store is open the day before and often times stays open until the 24 hour event starts. So technically the store is kind of open for a straight 36+ hours, but just be warned that this may change.

But be sure to make it down, we would love to have you guys down there to game with us!

P.S. just edited the info with the time.

Hey guys so we got a bunch of updates including a rough draft of the tournaments are now online along with their rules and more details on some big giveaways! Many of the giveaways you don't even have to be present at The Portal to get them, as long as you tune into the twitch stream at www.twitch.tv/latetothetable you can donate, participate and get an entry. And the giveaways include some very hard to get stuff such as the KS wooden box of Secret Hitler, Fury of Dracula (out of print), and Forbidden Stars (also out of print). I figured it would be easiest to just paste the entire event page's details so here you go:

It's that time of year again for the Extra Life 24-hour tabletop marathon!

The Portal will be open from midnight to midnight (all of Saturday) in partnership with the Extra Life Hartford Guild for an opportunity to raise money for local children at the Connecticut Children's Medical Center. Play Games, Heal Kids and support your local community by dropping in throughout the day. Think you're up for the 24 hour gaming challenge? Sign up at www.extra-life.org (http://www.extra-life.org) for a sponsorship page to share with friends and family.

Tournaments and special events will be announced closer to the event.

Tournament Links, times are subject to change and will be finalized by 10/28:
-Skull or Star Realms:

-Ticket To Ride:

A coffee station run in partnership with Ashlawn Farm Coffee will help keep our gamers perky throughout the day, and light snacks and drinks will be sold at the register.

Can't catch the event? Check out our live Twitch stream with Late To The Table throughout the day at www.twitch.tv/latetothetable. (http://www.twitch.tv/latetothetable.) All donations/subscriptions made on stream this day will be going towards Extra Life!

Also Late To The Table will be having a raffle throughout the entire day. All donations will be considered as entries, and you can receive multiple entries if you donate in the store, on the stream, and subscribe to the stream (100% free with a Twitch and Amazon Prime account!). Prizes include these hard to get games:
-Kickstarter exclusive wooden boxed version of Secret Hitler
-Fury of Dracula (if we meet a donation goal*)
-Forbidden Stars (if we meet our final donation goal*)
*To be announced before the event of course

4 more days! Here is one of the final big updates:

Final Update!

All tournaments have their official times updated on Meetup! A couple changes were made so check that out! Be sure to make an account on www.Challonge.com to update your own score and see the tournament updates live online.

Participate in our food Russian Roulettes! $1 donation gets you a spin for the jelly bean roulette where you can end up with some good flavors and some horrible ones as well such as "Spoiled Milk", "Fish", and even "COCONUT"!

$10 donation gets you an all day entry into the spicy chips roulette. So throughout the entire day whenever we spin for chips we will grab everyone that donated for an entry. We will be grabbing a ton of different spicy chips, and among them will be several Paqui Carolina Reaper chips (which are stupid hot).

Here's a list of the chips in the roulette:
-Pacqui - Carolina Reaper chip (By far the hottest)
-Pacqui - Ghost Pepper chip (Easily in 2nd place)
-Pacqui - Grilled Habanero
-Pacqui - Roasted Jalapeno
-Way Better Snacks - Spicy Sriracha
-The Better Chip - Jalapeno and Sea Salt
-Kettle - Jalapeno
-Garden of Eatin - Red Hot Blues

We will be running some promo games for donations, in which you will also be entered to win a copy of the game along with the promos! Games include Mysterium, Cash n Guns, and Escape The Room.

I think that's it, but if I remember I'll be sure to let you guys know!
