Calling Oklahoma tabletop and board gamers! Join us for our sixth annual Extra Life fundraising event. For 24 hours we play board games, card games and RPGs (with food, giveaways and tournaments in the mix) to raise money for Oklahoma kids in need.

HOW TO DONATE: Leading up to and during the event, we'll be taking donations through this web page or you can pay on site.
The event is free to attend and play board games from Game HQ's library. Donations can be used toward giveaways, food, tournament entry and more. Donations made here can be applied to perks day of the event. 100% of proceeds go to the Oklahoma City Children's Hospital.
This year we play in remembrance of Robert Alaniz, who has been a part of our event since the beginning making Dungeons & Dragons Adventurers League games happen, including the Epic. Robert built a community around D&D in the metro and was a friend to all of us. We will be premiering one of the last adventures Robert wrote along with several other adventures he organized with local writers for this event: "Showdown at the Stop." You can play Showdown at the Stop starting at 9 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 12.
We couldn't raise the money we do without the generous help of our sponsors who donate giveaway and tournament prizes as well as food, which we use to raise all of our funds! In return for sponsorship, your company is included on our flyers and you get shout outs throughout the event and credited for your donation.
Over the past five years, we've raised $15,276.36 for the Oklahoma City Children's Hospital Foundation. This year, we are raising funds for the Adolescent Medicine Program at the hospital and hope to raise $7,000 to help this much-needed program thrive.
All funds donated to Children's Hospital Foundation stay in Oklahoma so that families don’t have to leave the state to receive specialized care. They serve children and adolescents in all 77 counties. No child is ever turned away, regardless of ability to pay. Your donation is tax-deductible and ALL PROCEEDS go to help kids.
