On The Stick

Giant Bomb Extra Life 2017


On November 11th (and maybe November 4th!), we'll be playing games for 24 hours to raise funds for sick kids at my local children's hospital!

Here's how it works

  • Extra Life is a 24-hour fundraising and gaming marathon to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.
  • On Game Day (Nov. 11th), we will join the thousands of gamers and dedicate an entire day to play games and get donations from friends like YOU!
  • 100% of the donations go to my local hospital. TOGETHER we will make a difference for sick kids!

Your donation is tax-deductible and will make miracles happen for families who desperately need them. You can click the "Donate" button at the top of this page to make a safe and easy online donation. 

That's right, folks, we're at it again! On November 11th, Eric, Mike, Kurt, and Anthony will be joining Joe in his apartment to play games for 24 straight hours. And while charity is its own reward, we also have actual rewards for donating to our campaign. 

Individual Rewards

$5+ Will get you an entry in a raffle for a pack of 5 Steam games (including Hyper Light Drifter, Undertale, and 3 random codes), plus some Splatterhouse promotional stickers from the original release of the game in 1989!

$20+ Everyone that donates $20 or more will get a random Steam key.

$30 (limited to 3) Joe plays any NES game of your choice for 30 minutes.

$30 (limited to 3) You can pick a game for a live episode of Genesis or Genesisn't.

$50 A request for an episode of Same Name, Different Game, or Obscure Old Games, or Five Reasons (to be delivered before the end of 2018). Note, this is usually $60 on Patreon, but for the stream it's $50!

Finally, we've got two special rewards for the two highest donors. The person that donates the largest amount gets a custom made cover of a piece videogame music of their choice from Mike Ayles, an award-winning musician!

In addition to that, we're going to record a new console draft (available as a video and a podcast), and the person that makes the second largest donation gets to pick the system! PS2? Atari 2600? Nintedo 64? Our fate is in your hands!

Donation Goals

-Mike will play Castlevania III (he hates Castlevania III): $300

-Mike will take the hardest route in Castlevania III: $500

-Joe will turn our existing Console Drafts from audio-only into glorious videos (NES, Super NES, Playstation, and Genesis): $1,000



Donations stay local to fund critical treatments, healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment and charitable care.
