Save the Date! Extra Life Tabletop Appreciation Weekend is August 22-23, 2020

Tabletop Appreciation Weekend is back, August 22-23, 2020!

Extra Life has always been about helping kids through gaming. Many people support their local children’s hospitals by playing and streaming video games, but a not-insignificant portion of the Extra Life community does the same with tabletop gaming. Tabletop Appreciation Weekend exists to celebrate the people who take up pen and paper, miniatures and dice, cards and tokens to raise money for the kids. We here at Extra Life endorse and encourage all gaming, whatever form that might take.

To that end, Tabletop Appreciation Weekend approaches! This marks the fourth year Extra Life has set aside a weekend in August for our tabletop gamers to gather and play their favorite games to support the Children’s Miracle Network Hospital of their choice.

Magic the Gathering? Dungeons & Dragons? Risk? Whatever you enjoy playing with your friends and family can be both fun and help those in need. The event also serves as a springboard to get people thinking about Game Day, which is coming up on November 7.
