This year’s Extra Life campaign is live! I’ll be playing table top games for not 24 hours  but 25 hours straight to raise money for Children’s Hospitals. Please check out my Extra Life page and if you have a few bucks, I’d greatly appreciate your sponsorship!

This year I’m treating this one (granted full) day event as my own little convention. I had the somewhat crazy idea to reach out to game publishers and see about getting some prize support for those folks who’ll be joining Team Troll and themselves raising money for Extra Life.

A huge thanks to Eagle-Gryphon games! They’ve stepped up and have some titles heading my way! They have a couple of exciting new titles that you should check out! Francis Drake – Return to a bustling Plymouth Harbor in 1572 as an aspiring Elizabethan captain making preparations for three exciting voyages to the Spanish Main in search of fame and fortune! As captains, players will have to plan their missions and provision their ships accordingly. Also take a gander at Karesansui – As Grade Two monastery initiates in Karesansui – the cutthroat game of Zen gardening – it will be your great honor to tend the Masters’ rock gardens. Each morning the Grade Ones arrive with rocks they’ve gathered, then haul away the rocks that you don’t need anymore – but there aren’t enough Grade One initiates to go around, so there will be competition for the best selection of rocks.

I would also be remiss if I didn’t mention that Eagle-Gryphon have published two titles from on of my favorite game designers, Alf Seegert!  Check out The Road to Canterbury and Fantastiqa!

As for right now, these games will be played during my 25 hours of gaming, and then given to some lucky folks invited in to my home to assist. These folks will also be playing games in the hopes of raising money for Extra Life and the free games are my way of giving them some extra incentive to get out there before hand and raise some cash. I’m also looking into sending games off to my remote team members to encourage them to play more and raise more money!

About Ben

I'm a geek. A nerd, a dweeb, whatever. Yes I owned garb, yes I still own medieval weaponry. And yeah, I could kick your butt in Mechwarrior the CCG. I love video games, role playing games, tactical board games and all forms of speculative fiction. I will never berate someone for wanting to be a Jedi and take everything Gary Gygax ever wrote as gospel. Well, all of this but that last bit.
