Less than one month until Extra Life! We need your help!

October 25th many members of the Windsor Gaming Resource will be gathering at Brimstone Games to play games for 24 hours straight in support of Extra Life! This is an amazing geek driven fund raiser that is in support of the Children's Miracle Network of Hospitals.

That's less than a month away and right now we are only at 33% of our goal, so we need your help!

What exactly are we doing?

Saturday October 25th at 10:00am a group of local gamers will be heading to Brimstone Games. Once there it's simple: we game, and we game for 24 hours straight. We'll be going until 10:00am on Sunday. We will be playing board games, miniature games and maybe even some pen and paper roleplaying games.

In addition to all the gaming, at 8:00pm on Saturday night we will also be hosting a live auction. Anyone is welcome to attend this portion of the event. We've got a great selection to auction off and 100% of the proceeds will be going to Extra Life.

What can you do to help?

Come play games: You should come join us on the 25th and play some games! Even if you can't come out for all 24 hours it would be awesome if you could stop in and say hi, bring us some caffeine and/or play a game or two. We would love the support and encouragement. You can show up at any time during the event. Stop in after work, say hi at lunch, whenever.

If you want to join us or stop in to show your support, you can find Brimstone at 3298 Walker Rd. Parking is available on the south side of the building and on the street around back. 

Join our team: Extra Life lets groups of participants make a team page and we have one for the Windsor Gaming Resource. Click here to join up!

Sponsor a Windsor Gaming Resource member: Any amount helps, even a buck. The Extra Life site has a wide variety of payment options and offers charity receipts. Just click on our roster and pick someone to support. If you want to support me, the captain, directly click here. You can also donate in person at Brimstone Games or PayPal to gilvanblight(a)gmail.com.

Participate in the live auction: The auction will be held at 8pm on Saturday October 25th and there will be a wide variety of new and used games and other geekery on the auction block, including some awesome Dice Bags donated by Mercantile 519. We will even be accepting Debit (Interac) for the auction so you don't need to bring a ton of cash.

Donate games for the auction: Are you a game publisher? Do you have too many games and don't know what to do with them? How about donating your games to the cause. Any donations can be dropped off the day of the event or contact gilvanblight(at)gmail.com to make arrangement before then.

Huge thanks to our sponsors:
