Team Captain CrashGem Tabletop Extra Life 2023


Hey! Crash here. My community plays & streams a ton of TTRPGs on Twitch & YouTube and we are reaching out to you about the Extra Life Charity happening in a few weeks. We teamed up last year and my friends and community really enjoyed it.

This year is the 15th anniversary of Extra Life! Since its inception in 2008, Extra Life has raised over $100 million USD to Change Kids' Health to Change the Future. Right now, children's hospitals need YOUR support.

At CrashGem Tabletop, this will be our 8th year fundraising. Each year we work our butts to the bone running charity Dungeons & Dragons TTRPG games to raise both money & awareness for Extra Life. Together, our team has earned over 30,000 dollars, and this year we are back to raise even more!

This year, we return to our 25-Hour marathon format! Two GMs, each running a group of five brave kobold adventurers, will be delving the same dungeon, racing the meta clock to revive the power of their respective dragon-god for a climatic final dragon kaiju battle!

Donating is simple!

  1. You donate to the campaign; it helps sick kids.
  2. Every dollar you donate is a chance to win fantastic prizes.
  3. Donate $20 or more, and we will send you some cool stuff.
  4. INCENTIVES! When you donate, you can add a message to boost a particular player, all players, or the monsters.
    OR you can choose one of the incentives in the sidebar for a speedy donation and explosion! Or gift...

That's it!

How are donations generated?

You use that donate button! We also have a Facebook donation page. You can also choose to donate via an incentive! Incentives have a big impact on the games and players!

How can you help?

Donate! Any amount can make a difference, but donating 20 or more throughout the fundraiser nets you a fun prize pack of tabletop goodies. Every dollar you donate is another chance to win cool prizes. Top donors automatically unlock special rewards!

 If you can and would like to donate more, please do! Donating is secure, safe, & easy! Plus, your donation is tax-deductible. Click the "Donate" button on this page to get started. 

Thank you so much for supporting our efforts! All donations go to Children's National. You can also share this fundraising page on your social media platforms! Help get the word out!

How do I find out more?

Over the years, our efforts have inspired others to donate over 23,000 dollars to Children's Hospitals in the Maryland, DC, and Virginia areas. This November, we aim to raise even more!

Where Can I Watch?

Players & DMs 

  • 3 usd: Instant inspiration - roll a d6! and add the result to a d20 roll. This effect can stack. 
  • 3 usd: Cutting Words! - roll a d6! and subtract the result of a d20 roll. This effect can stack. 
  • 15 usd: Locked & Loaded - you gain a crit token. You can spend this token to make any successful hit a critical hit. This is declared after the hit is finalized. 


  • 10usd: Gift from Heaven - Pick a game Red or Blue; An unopened Gachapon appears on the map. Any creature can use an action to open it. If no game is specified, randomly determined. 
  • 15usd: Activate Your Trap Card - Pick a game Red or Blue; every time a PC starts their turn they roll to see if they set off a trap.
  • 25usd: Double Trapped  - You plant a trap in both Red & Blue games 
  • 10usd: Fated Minion - Pick a game Red or Blue; pick a bloodline: A minion follows that bloodline around ready to lay down their life for the cause. If your kobold dies, the attached minion dies instead, and your kobold survives with 1 hp. Attacks, spells, & effects cannot target minions; they are effectively a stackable Death Ward. 
  • 20usd: Detonate a kobold. Choose a kobold, it dies and explodes creating a magical fireball centered on itself. (5d6! True/5d6! force damage - These dice can “explode” infinitely | DC 25 Constitution save for half). Any kobold who nat 1 fails against this fireball or is killed by this fireball also detonates, creating a new fireball effect, potentially chaining through all kobolds. 
  • 30usd: FIREBALL! FIREBALL! - you cause a random kobold PC in Red & Blue to detonate!  .
  • 40usd: Make my Monster GROW! You give the DM a Repulsa Token. This can be used to make any monster go Kaiju. A Kaiju Monster has its STR & CON increased by 15, It gains 200 Temp HP, and its token size becomes (up to) 10x10. 
  • 50usd: Meteor Swarm: Pick a side, Red or Blue. You blow up all the kobolds in that game.

Gashapon Orbs

There are 100 unique Gashapons this year. Both games will have access to their own copy of these. Every 5th Gachapon redeemed will affect all players on a team.
