For the third year in a row, Dungeons & Dragons is returning to the Extra Life charity gaming event! Members of the team will play the D&D tabletop roleplaying game for 48 hours during Extra Life’s inaugural Tabletop Appreciation Weekend (October 2-4) to help raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. In addition, the team will return on Extra Life Game Day on November 7 for even more D&D, as it streams digital games like Sword Coast Legends and Neverwinter.
In addition, this year team members from Magic: The Gathering will also join the Extra Life effort with their own team, which will take part in Tabletop Appreciation Weekend.
Help Support a Good Cause!
The money raised through Extra Life goes directly to Children’s Miracle Network Hospital, helping to fund research and training, purchase life-saving equipment, and pay for uncompensated care. CMN hospitals treat every patient that comes through their doors, regardless of the family’s ability to pay. The goal is to help save and improve the lives of as many children as possible, and the funds raised will make it possible for the hospitals to do that!
Players can join the D&D team or the Magic team or set-up their own playgroup at home. Players, DMs, and Planeswalkers around the country are encouraged to join either team and contribute to the overall team totals.
Whether you love the classic tabletop games or prefer to take your adventure digital, you can play D&D and contribute to the cause! Try out the new Sword Coast Legends or any of the other D&D video games, such as Neverwinter or classics like Baldur’s Gate. You can also show your support for the D&D team by adding the D&D Twibbon to your Twitter or Facebook profile.
Magic players have many options as well! Whether you’re playing paper Magic: The Gathering, Magic Online, or the recently released (and free) Magic Duels: Origins, all the donations you generate will count towards the Magic team goal!
All participating members of the D&D Extra Life team who raise at least $50 and respond to a survey after the event will receive a promotional certificate for use in D&D Adventurers League play. Keep an eye out for announcements of more rewards and previews as we near the event.
The Dungeons & Dragons game will be broadcasted on the D&D Twitch Channel starting on Friday, October 2 and running until Sunday, October 4.
The Magic: The Gathering team will also be running a 24-hour stream on the Magic Twitch Channel beginning the morning of Saturday, October 3, and concluding the morning of Sunday, October 4. Tune in and play along!
