Team Captain Cryton Crusaders Extra Life 2018


The Cut & Dry

Hello everyone! Jak is back with a plan of attack for this year's Extra-Life Gaming Marathon! 

Who's ready for Year 5?! The Cryton Crusaders, my first attempt at an Extra Life Team, pulled in $1000 for this great cause last year and we are hoping to do it again! I will be aiming for a personal goal of $300, which is about what I landed around in 2017. I'm sure with a few fellow gamers by my side we will once more hit the team goal!

Thank you in advance to everyone stopping by! Donate for the children, join up with the team, and/or like and share the social media posts made about our endeavor. You all rock!

Below are the details about the Extra Life Game Day 2018 24-Hour Gaming Marathon:

Extra Life Game Day 2018: 11/3/2018
Time: 12am Midnight Saturday (11/3) - 12am Midnight Sunday (11/4)
Personal Donation Goal: $300 | Team Donation Goal: $1000

Hopefully with a team we can hit that higher mark. Honestly, though, any amount of money raised is a tremendous help and greatly appreciated!

The Gaming Line-Up

As done previously, I'll be sticking with the Midnight Fri/Sat to Midnight Sat/Sun schedule, so people can jump in whenever they feel like on Saturday (or stay the entire time) and still be able to sleep in on Sunday. Most people work standard jobs after all!


Over the years we've played games of Vault Wars, Marvel Legendary, Legendary Encounters: Aliens and Predator, Foretold: Rise of a God, Ascension, Splendor, 7 Wonders, Valeria: Card Kingdoms, Lanterns, Talisman, and many more. This year I will have a few different selection and there's a good chance I will be playing more video games on Twitch (or Mixer) this time around. Here are the potentials:



  • Valeria Series: Valeria: Card Kingdoms | Villages of Valeria | Quests of Valeria
  • Legendary (almost any iteration, but maybe Alien or Predator variants)
  • Mystic Vale
  • Roll Player
  • Sagrada
  • Century: Spice Road
  • Grimslingers


  • PUBG
  • Black Ops 4
  • Fortnite: Battle Royale
  • Overwatch
  • Red Dead Redemption 2
  • Path of Exile
  • Minecraft: XBox One Live Edition

There's a small rundown of the possible games I will be engaged in, come the first initial 24-Hour marathon on November 4th, 2017! I'm sure I'll be adding more to the list as time goes on! I also plan to continue my own private 24-Hour Marathons too!

Twitch Out With Me

It is possible I will be attempting to live stream some of these games. I managed to figure out Twitch last year, so hopefully I can get a refresher in before the marathon and be ready to rock when it hits. No promises, though!

Mixer Anyone?

I also have a Mixer account, which is more readily viable for Xbox, so I may be opting to stream on this platform as well!

I wish I did as much writing as I did gaming, but alas... My website is basically a conglomerate of 4 blogs, each with a different focus. Feel free to check them out and/or connect there!

I'd love to connect with you! I'm looking forward to conquering another gaming marathon and donation drive with you all!

The Standard Issue

Dear Friends and Family,

I'm on a mission to save kids and I need your help. My local Children's Miracle Network Hospital treats thousands of children each year, regardless of their family's ability to pay. These kids are facing scary stuff like cancer, cystic fibrosis, and injuries from accidents to name just a few.

I'll be participating in this huge worldwide celebration of the social impact of gamers of all kinds from video games to board games and tabletop RPG's! Since 2010, Extra Life has raised more than $14 million to help children's hospitals provide critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, research and charitible care. It's my sincere hope that you'll find it in your heart to support my efforts with a monthly pledge or one-time gift that will go directly to my hospital.

Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.

I need your help to reach my goal For The Kids.  Please make a safe, easy donation online today.  Click the "Support This Participant" button on this page to get started.  Thank you so much for supporting my efforts!
