Exciting Updates for Tabletop Appreciation Weekend 2022

Tabletop Appreciation Weekend is back, August 19-21, 2022!

This marks the sixth year Extra Life has set aside a weekend in August for our tabletop gamers to gather and play their favorite games to support local member children’s hospitals.

Extra Life is thrilled to announce a fundraising incentive for our Tabletop friends! The Dice Rolling Tray is an exclusive fundraising incentive available only to Extra Life participants who raise $80 USD between August 4-22, 2022. Have questions? We’ve got answers! Check out our FAQ regarding this incentive.


You can also prepare for Tabletop Appreciation Weekend by attending our Create a Character events! Are you interested in Tabletop Appreciation Weekend but have never played a role-playing game like Dungeons & Dragons? Or are you a seasoned tabletop veteran, looking for new inspiration for characters? Come join us in the @ExtraLife4Kids Discord to sign up for our Character Creation event happening between August 8 and August 14. We will host multiple sessions for players to create characters, discuss their character creation methods, and learn how to make a character for the first time! A schedule and sign-up form for timeslots will be posted in the Extra Life Discord soon.
