Hello everyone. GameNight! and Team Geek are participating in the Extra Life 24-hour livestream again this year to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The Extra Life marathons work a lot like other charity marathons, but instead of running we play a marathon of games!

We will be live streaming our 24-hour gaming marathon from the GameNight! studio in Los Angeles starting at Noon local time (GMT -8) on November 5th. Watch us here on Twitch http://twitch.tv/boardgamegeektv. Last year we raised over $5000 in contributions and are hoping to do the same this year (and then some, fingers-crossed ).

To join the team go to: http://tinyurl.com/teamgeek2016 - then recruit friends and family to donate and play your own game marathon!

To donate through team BGG simply click on a player from the team roster and then click "Donate". Here is my page: http://www.extra-life.org/participant/heccubus.

Please make suggestions of what you would like to see us play in the comments below and you can see our game collection here for inspiration http://tinyurl.com/gamenightcollection.

Again we will be streaming here on Twitch http://twitch.tv/boardgamegeektv

Thanks in advance for your support, suggestions and for watching!

Lincoln & Nikki

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.

Are you a Team Captain or an event organizer? If so, perhaps you'd be interested in a Guild I've recently started. There's not much content there at the moment, but I hope to build an active conversation where we can share ideas, resources, and inspiration.

Extra Life: Captain, my Captain!

Go Team BGG!

As for my recommendation:
Elder Sign with either the Gates of Arkham or Omens of Ice expansion.

It's even saner than that Rusty, cause it's a 25 hour long day!

For the non-Americans, this actually starts at noon PDT (UTC-7). The time change back to PST will happen during that night at 2 am PDT (it becomes 1 am PST).

This will be my third Extra Life and I've been on the Flip the Table Podcast team the last couple of years. This year I'm closing in on my $1300 goal and could definitely use a push to get over that goal and see if I can reset to a $1500 goal.

Newer Games:
+1 for Captain Sonar.

Like most folks, I'd be happy to see any of the more recent releases played (London Dread, Covert, Black Orchestra, Flamme Rouge, Adrenaline, the new offerings from Uwe Rosenberg, Stefan Feld, Alexander Pfister, or any of the myriad games about exploring Mars. But an event like this would be a great opportunity to play several sessions of Fabled Fruit to show a bit of the progression.

Older Games:
A fantastic, but under-appreciated game that works really well at a large gathering is The World Cup Game. It's best if you have someone to teach/facilitate. It starts slowly, but then escalates to what is always an exciting finish where the eliminated players remain as invested as those still competing.

And you should certainly play Lexio (Black Tile Edition), because it should always be played.

I am really happy this is happening. And I hope your local Extra Life Guild knows about it, so they can help promote that you are doing this.

But as the Albany Guild Pres, I think this is awesome, and thank you for doing this!

+1 to Captain Sonar

I think a game of Escape: The Curse of the Temple would also be fun to watch live.

For the slower side of things, Food Chain Magnate would be neat, though that might be better served in a regular episode.

Another +1 for Captain Sonar, I'd love to see it played.

Same for Escape: The Curse of the Temple, it plays very quickly so a few games would be nice, add some expansion tiles.

And if we go for some long and fun games that would not be ideal for GameNight! as you tend to be way more "Euro" on the show, I'd like either Firefly: The Game or the ultimate game, Dune.
