Extra Life Con is an event to raise money for the WVU Children’s Hospital through the Extra Life Charity starting at 10am on Saturday November 7th and going at least until 1am on Sunday morning at the Capital City Lodge Fraternal Order of Police in Dunbar.
Admission is a minimum donation of $25. There you can buy tickets for $1 which can be spent to enter tournaments or for the raffle that they will draw at 10pm. All proceeds will be going to charity. They have prizes and raffle items donated by local business and supporters of Extra Life to give away.
Pathfinder Society and SPARKS will both be running RPG sessions throughout the day. There will be a board game library donated by CharCon, a pool table, dart board, poker table, arcade and pinball machines to play. Chick-fill-A at the Town Center will be providing free lunch.
There will be Ms Pac Man and Galaga High Score tournaments at different times throughout the day. Other tournaments include Martian Dice, pool, Settlers of Catan, darts, poker, and King of Tokyo. All tournaments have prizes and you can sign up any time up to 10 minutes of start time. They will do a Wits & Wagers Game Show at 7pm. At around 10pm they will start-up large group gaming like Werewolf, Resistance, and others.
They have already raised nearly half of their target goal for this event. You can sign up ahead of time or if you can not make it yourself still donate to help out some sick kids.
Gamers of all type should be able to find something fun to here. Of course if you can not make, please consider making a donation to help out a sick kid.
