Extra Details for Extra Gaming for Extra Life!

Hey TGD Nation – just chiming in today to provide some more context and information on November’s Extra Gaming for Extra Life event! We hope to launch registration on Friday and are excited about this expanded fall event. So some expanded details . . .

  • This is our fifth Extra Gaming for Extra Life event but the first multi-day event! The Nashville Airport Marriott is being super generous in hosting us and allowing this expansion to happen.
  • The event will be preregistration only – mainly because we hope that it will sell out. Expect an event in size closer to TGD VI and VII (150-200) as opposed to XI and XII (750+). Our goal is that this is the first step in really expanding the scope of the Extra Gaming Event!
  • There will be a hotel room block at the Marriott for those that want to stay onsite. An online reservation link will be available at tngamedays.com when registration goes live.
  • Speaking of registration, while we anticipate going live on Friday, Sept. 27th – watch our social media, our website, our blog or email marketing for latest news or any delays.
  • All proceeds from the weekend will go to helping improve children’s health in Middle Tennessee! Like previous years, we also are encouraging people that want to cloud source more fundraising for the cause to join our Extra Life team (sign up link). While you don’t need to join to attend, we will have a number of incentives for participation – we’ll be sharing them this week as well.
  • We are also planning for an exciting silent auction component to this year’s event. The goal is to use an online platform so that you can participate in it whether or not you are on site for Extra Gaming for Extra Life! Details will be coming in a few weeks. In the meantime, if you have an idea for a unique experience that you’d like to offer up for the auction, drop us a line!

Whew! Lots to get ready but we are super excited about this expanded effort and think you will be as well. It will be a great weekend playing excellent games with awesome people – make plans to be there!

WHAT?
We'll have a good portion of the TGD gaming library available to play throughout the day. There will also be lunch and dinner provided on Saturday to keep you fueled up for gaming! In addition, there will be prizes! Check out what you can win:

We would love to shatter our past fundraising efforts, so if you want to hit social media or send out an email to friends about playing games to help sick kids - great! If not, no pressure - we are happy you are joining us to play games!

Can I just pay $10 at the door?
As space allows yes, but to help us with planning and food requests, registering with our team would help a ton. If you are worried about spam (but to be honest they don't email very much at all), go ahead and use an "old" address.

Hope you'll plan on joining us for a great event that is not only fun but doing some great things for some really sick kids in Nashville and beyond! Game on!
