I didn't see one posted yet, but here we go.
 
Its a new season for Team CAG and Extra Life Gaming Charity.
 
WE ARE RECRUITING MEMBERS!!!!!
 
What is a Extra Life Gaming Charity?
- It's a 24-hour gaming marathon where all the proceeds go to hospitals that are part of the Children's Miracle Network.
- You get to choose the hospital of your choice.
 
In previous years with Team CAG we:
- have raffles for those who participate with the event with prizes from Naughty Dog, Valve, EPIC Games, and others.
- Have a blast with livestreams, and live tweets of the event.
 
If love to game, and love to help, this is the event for you!  Check the links below for more information.
 
Extra Life Gaming Event
 
Team CAG's Extra Life Page
 
Children's Miracle Network
 
If you have any questions, feel free to pm me Frostybroc or the team captain ObsidianSpire.
 
 
END OF THE SEASON RAFFLE PRIZES
 
Like previous years, we've awarded everyone with gifts that we received from the generous donors. This year I will be adding something to the mix. Out of the donations I get from Devs and Publishers, the top two will be allowed to choose their gift out the pot that is available. I will keep a list of what I have so you guys have some motivation to get out and help your chosen hospital. More will be added if not by devs, then by me.

This actually works out pretty well for me, work schedule-wise assuming you start at 12am Saturday morning. I don't work till 8am on Sunday. Of course I don't know what will be happening for sure that many months away but intially I am interested.

 

So how does it work? Do we as a team combine to play for 25 hours or each member plays for 25 hours?

 

I'm currently playing through my entire steam backlog in alphabetical order and have been livestreaming/recording the playthroughs so I am already good to go in that regard.

Nice, you go for 24 hours. No one is going to get upset if you don't make it or have to do it on another night. Just try to set it up for the same evening so everyone has the chance to play with others if you want. The hardest part is trying to get people to donate to your Extra Life page, but its worth it since its helps kids.

 

I hope you sign up and join the team.

Naughty Dog came through and sent some items to help us motivate donors & fund raisers. A ton of The Last of Us stuff. I only peeked at the box this morning. 4 regular copies of the game and some hardcover guides. I didn't see whats underneath. Naughty Dog is amazing this is the second year they backed us up.

Hey, frosty, thanks for maintaining this new thread.  Oh, one suggestion though: add some related tags to this thread like Extra Life, charity, giveaway, etc.   We're planning some fun giveaways this year, so look forward to donating and playing with us.  Also, was wondering if folks would want to play some co-op games together during the event?  I'd be interested if I own the game(s). :D

 

Side question: One of the items I will be giving away is a brand new Ouya with 2 controllers sealed in original box. I was considering an $X (say $10 for example) amount buy in for a raffle, or maybe a lowball bidding war, or have someone just purchase it outright and send the amount to my Extra Life campaign.  What method do you all prefer?

I condone this entirely, and I've been wanting to get into something like this for a long time. If the details work out I would be up for it but we'll have to see.


Check out @RealKrakrabbit - Twitter Page Full of News, Tidbits, etc., etc.

 

Also looking to make trades/sells to anyone who is interested. Check out my tradelist! :grouphug:

Krakrabbit, just raise funds, and get maybe some people from the GW2 guild to join up.

 

So far I will be having a team CAG drawing. 1 prize will be a copy of the Last of Us game and hardcover guide.

 

Will try to get more items for motivation from game companies.

Hey Frosty! I'll be back again this year. Haven't set up my page yet, but I'm looking to break $2k this year. Got involved with my local CMN hospital coordinators and I'm gonna be touring the facilities with my son, dropping off some comics and stuff. Not sure if they have a wii or any other game systems but I've got plenty of backlog from my wii that I'd donate there too.

Anyway... I came out of nowhere last year and am looking for a few good CAGs to challenge me :)

Also, last year I never got to play with anyone (I think I had to play on a different night), but I'd really like to get together with some folks and game. I have just about every system/PC rig too, so it'd be great to play with some of you. I really needed it last year between 4am-7am, I ended up finishing Skyrim during the marathon, but I definitely was nodding during those hours. Luckily I had my infant son to keep me awake around 7ish.

Best of luck to everyone again this year. And thanks again to Frosty for coordinating!

Even if you're not interested in The Last Of Us, share the raffle with your friends and make it a competition!  Sharing an opportunity is always free. :D

Look forward to having you back Multi. Also Commander Cody, if you want feel free to join the team, if not Good Luck with Broken Game Society. As corny as it may sound, but everyone is a winner just helping out the kids.

Appreciate the offer Frosty. Not sure why I bothered starting a team ths year. All my friends would rather send people with donations my way.

Maybe it's the pressure of going 24 hours (now 25 hours!). Does everyone else do it straight through? Or break it up into 2 chunks?

Don't think I'm going to do any giveaways at this point unless something falls in my lap.

Some people break it up and others might do the marathon on a weekend that is more convenient for them. No way to tell even if you did the marathon.

Granted it is sometime away, anyone have anything they plan on playing?

For me, Dynasty Warriors 8 getting the Red Hare and War elephant sounds like a mission for that night.

I'll probably pepper in some Borderlands 2 and Halo, but I really want to focus on local games with friends.

Hoping for some fighting games and maybe some NES, SNES, and N64.

Not really sure what I'll be playing through the event. I'm going to try and split up the hours between a few games I haven't started or am in the middle of and work my way through the story and co-op with friends when applicable.

 

Also, would any of you happen to want to try the Beta out for the new Ridge Racer: Driftopia game on Steam?  I got an email with a code, but I don't really feel interested.  Just post and send me a PM if you're interested.

Took a couple of photos of some of my Naughty Dog games and merch in honor of my newest addition, The Last of Us.  Thanks again, frostybroc and Naughty Dog! 

 

Also, added your new team pic to mine as well. It's a pretty nice design. :D
