2nd Annual Extra Life Charity Event

2nd Annual Board Gamers Anonymous Extra Life Fundraiser

When: October 26, 2014
Where: Gamer’s Gambit, Saddlebrook, NJ

2013 was a HUGE success and we’re not going to let the unfortunate closing of Myriad Games stop us from doing it again. Our goal this year? To top the $2,400+ we raised in 2013 – are you ready to help us make it happen?

We’ve been talking about it for weeks and it’s almost here. Extra Life 2014 will be held on October 26th from 11am to 11pm at Gamer’s Gambit in Saddlebrook, NJ and will be the culmination of weeks of work by the Board Gamers Anonymous team.
