ExtraLife is a charitable movement that encourages gamers around the world to play games in support of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. Maybe, you've heard of this before, possibly even in previous years here on B8. The important thing is it is ExtraLife weekend THIS WEEKEND!
For the past 4 years the "Board8 Supergroup" has raised money through ExtraLife with our overall total now at $6,800~.
Hosted this year for the 3rd time by Digi and Tabii (One y was hosted by Shaduln), we are once again streaming for a crazy 49 hours (Daylight Savings!) non-stop starting at 7am on Saturday and finishing at 7am on Monday.
This year the Supergroup consists of Digi, MSG, SgtSphynx, Wigs, Han, Tabii and myself.
We're going to play a lot of videogames, featuring lots of couch multiplayer (Smash, Mario Kart, WarioWare, Tricky Towers, Nidhogg, Divekick and more), Hitman 2, Trauma Team, piles of Roguelikes, a horror section featuring Amnesia and Resident Evil, awful Rock Band singing, S3&K, Outer Worlds and many, many more. We're also just going to be hanging out on the couch, shooting s*** and talking smack at whoever is playing the games. Because... y'know... we're B8ers.
We'd love to have you guys hang out in chat and donate if you're able to, we're aiming for a donation goal of $3,000 this year but if we could push beyond that and take our total for the 4 years to $10k...? That'd be amazing. B8 has never failed to disappoint us, so I'm sure you won't this year.
Stevie3V will also be streaming at some point with his brother and promises Stream Quality. Drop in on him if you'd like to, he'd definitely appreciate it!

Thanks to everyone who has donated in the past, to everyone who shows up this weekend, to everyone who is going to donate and everyone who's been involved in ExtraLife in previous years (Bane, Shaduln, ChaosTony, Jukkie, Arti, Paratroopa, KBM, profDeadpool... maybe more?).
