DONATE

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 DONATE!

The fine folks at Pandasuarus Games have donated several titles to our Extra Life cause! They’ve got a bunch of very cool games out but I want to call your attention to two games which look absolutely amazing.

First, look at this board:

yedo-3d

 

That’s Yedo and doesn’t it look pretty! “Japan, 1605 – Hidetada Tokugawa has succeeded his father as the new Shogun, ruling from the great city of Yedo. This is the opportunity our clan has been looking for. Our chance at power and glory.” Yedo is a worker placement game, and has been compared to Lords of Waterdeep, but with a beautiful samurai theme and a bit more meat to the mechanics.

Another beautiful board for you:

Firenze-Board-art1

Firenze is another stunner of a board game! “In the Florence of the 12th-14th centuries, the city’s powerful and in­fuential families don’t just compete with each other in trade and politics. They also try to outdo one another by building tall tower homes as status symbols.” And damn, that’s pretty!

In Firenze, you’re building those colorful towers you see above, using an elegant card mechanic. The game play is fairly simple, but the strategy is deep and it plays in 60 minutes!

As with all of the publishers lending a hand in this, I’ll be handing off at least one of these games to my team members to encourage them to play! They in turn may be giving them away to folks at their own events, to encourage them to play!  What it really boils down to is that we’ll have more people excited about this event, which means more chances to raise more money. As always, any amount will help! Every dollar given is tax deductible and 100% goes  to the hospitals! Just click the banner below to donate. And don’t feel silly about donating $1 if that’s what you can do. Every donation counts!

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.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
