EXTRA LIFE – An in-store Charity Event

From the Extra Life website:

On an Autumn Saturday each year since 2008, tens of thousands of gamers have joined together to save the lives of local kids in a celebration of gaming culture that we call Extra Life.  From console games to tabletop RPG's to even lawn sports, Extra Life gives people that love to play a chance to do what they love to save lives and make a difference.

Originally designed as a 24-hour marathon of gaming, Extra Life has evolved to mean different things to different people (though most of our participants still attempt the marathon).

To participate you need only sign up (free) and gather the support of your friends and family through tax-deductible donations to your local CMN Hospital. Then on Saturday, November 4, 2017 (or any day that works for you!) play any game(s) you want on any platform(s) that you want with anyone you want for as long as you want.

The proceeds from Extra Life stay where they're raised to support children's hospitals.

Since 2008, our incredible players have raised more than $30 million dollars, $9 million of which was raised in 2016 alone!”

When: Nov 3rd and 4th (Friday and Saturday), 10AM to 10PM each day. 24 hrs total.

Where: Gamer’s Haven, 5730 Academy Blvd N, Colorado Springs, CO 80918

What: Play card games, board games, miniatures games, and-or role-playing games for the duration.

How: Sign-up at the Extra Life website here https://www.extra-life.org/   . Get friends and family to sponsor you. Remember to sell it as a challenge, like a walk-a-thon only for gaming. When you have your sponsors and are sure of your participation, sign up at the Gamer’s Haven counter so we know how many to expect.

The back room has a limited number of tables, so if you can, plan your games to a set schedule needing a set amount of seats and table space. We’ll map out space and time for everyone on a first come-first served basis (though reserve the right to prioritize larger donor potential for space. Charity money talks!)

THIS IS NOT A CONVENTION EVENT – please do not sign-up for space unless you are actually registered, and sponsored. Otherwise, you are taking space from someone actually supporting the charity!

Friday Night will still host Magic: The Gathering and Warhammer 40K games. If you will not be playing either of those between 5 and 10 that evening, there will be two special coordinated events just for Extra Life Gamers – One RPG and one Boardgame (details to come!).  All other tables will be filled. If you are not interested, or cannot get a seat for those times, you are welcome to game in any other venue, and count it towards the overall event!

Please email dale.kunz@gmail.com with any questions.

For Registration, I’ve set up a Team named “Gamer’s Haven” with a stated Goal of $4000. That reflects a hope for 40 participants at $100 in pledges each. Ambitious, but you have to aim high! Search for the Team during registration, and join!

EXTRA LIFE – An in-store Charity Event

Wait, how does this work again?

  • Go to the Extra Life website
  • Sign-up and Join the team for Gamer’s Haven
  • Collect Pledges and Donations
  • Play 24 hrs of games between 3 and 4 Nov (or thereabouts) preferably as part of the organized events
  • Collect on pledges, bundle it all and deliver to Extra Life online
  • Check the Extra Life page to see your personal and Team totals

What if I don’t have time for all that?

  • Collect what donations you can for the cause, Children’s Hospital, and deliver to Extra Life Organizers at Gamer’s Haven. We’ll convert to donations under Team Gamer’s Haven.
  • Come and play games for 12 hrs and 12 hrs on Nov 3rd and 4th

What if I want my own team?

                That’s fine! If you then play your games at Gamer’s Haven, let us know your fundraising total, and we’ll have a better idea of the total raised

What if I can only make one day?

                Play what you can at the store, the rest is between you and your pledges and donors!

                Gaming at home and in your regular groups counts!

But THOR RAGNAROK comes out that weekend, and I need to go see it!

                That movie officially counts as Gaming. So say we all.

What’s to keep me from raising funds and keeping the money?

                For starters, that would make you an awful person. Also, if we find out, you’ll have to do the walk of shame from the Sept of Baelor to the Red Keep

What does all that mean?

                Are you sure you’re a gamer?

EXTRA LIFE @ GAMER’S HAVEN                       FAQ CONTINUED

I have a great event idea for those days. How do I get a table?

                Let me know, or the Gamer’s Haven staff, and we’ll get you set up. But please don’t take a table unless you can actively recruit participants – that part is up to you!

This seems like boardgames only? Are other things welcome?

                Any games where you can sit at a table, socialize, and have fun are welcome! Just apply Wheaton’s Law if unsure.
