Extra Life unites thousands of gamers around the world to play games in support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Throughout the month of August, we celebrate #ExtraLifeTabletop, with the biggest celebration taking place during the annual Tabletop Weekend, August 18-20, 2023.
Platinum Extra Lifers who fundraise $90 USD from August 3 to August 21 will be able to unlock the Extra Life Hex Chest! Extra Life teamed up with our friends at Elderwood Academy to create this amazing incentive for Tabletop Weekend!
Once you raise $90 (after August 3), we'll email you with your redemption code. These wooden engraved hex chests feature the Extra Life logo on top and the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals logo on the bottom. The lid attaches magnetically. The hex chest does not come with dice, but we know you have plenty of dice that will be happy to take up residence in your brand new Extra Life hex chest.
