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.

I want to give a huge shout out to Stronghold Games in the person of Stephen M. Buonocore. Stephen stepped up immediately and offered several titles from the Stronghold Games catalog. Please head on over to the Stronghold Games site and check out their summer releases, Vampire EmpireVoluspaTime ‘N’ Space and the next expansions for Revolver 1 – 1.3, 1.4 and 1.5.

Even cooler than that – right now you can grab  Space Cadets: Dice Duel as a LIMITED RELEASE of SIGNED COPIES by the designers Sydney and Geoff Engelstein.  This will only be going on for a couple of weeks and it’s happening before you can even pre-order the game.

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.


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.
