Sensible Shoes Extra Life 2020

I've pledged to play games and raise funds for kids at my local children's hospital.

We'll be playing Shadows of Brimstone again this year, because it's our favorite game. According to BoardGameGeek we may have played it more than anyone else. We're special.

This is our fourth year taking part in this.

Spending part of my birthday celebrations doing Extra Life has become a very happy tradition. Last year we raised nearly $2300, and had a sleep-deprived good time to boot. This year we're hoping to raise even more than that! 

Again, this year we won't be playing for 24-hours straight, because it's too hard on our aging bodies. There will be a sleep break in the middle of the madness, but we'll use the whole weekend to play games for the kids!

But unlike the previous years, we have to content with COVID which means we don't all get to gather around the table. Test Subjects The World & Not A Whale Biologist will be wrangling the physical bits in their Gametarium while My Lovely Assistant and I get to remote in. We've always been disembodied voices to you as you watch the action on the board, so it shouldn't be much different for you home.

So please, click that button to donate and join us for the shenanigans. We'll have the chat going and happy to answer questions!
