Tune In to the Extra Life Livestream!

Scroll down or CLICK HERE to go straight to the livestream!

Each November, GJJ Games runs a 24 Hour Game Marathon as well as a week long Charity Auction at The Gaming Goose in DeKalb. These events support the Extra Life organization's efforts to raise money for Children's Miracle Network Hospitals.  Our event specifically supports Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in Chicago.  Please tune in to support this wonderful charity event and to play some great games!

This year I will be live streaming for 24 hours to support Extra Life! Join me as I kick off the 2020 Charity Auction for Extra Life! I'll be playing games, running marble races, doing a few giveaways, and more from 7pm Friday, November 6 until 7pm Saturday, November 7 (CST). Come join in the fun! All proceeds from the 24 Hour Live Stream and the Auction go to support Children's Miracle Network Hospitals!

Each live stream video (except the last one) will be about 4 hours long, with short 10-30 minute breaks between streams. So join in the fun (and help me stay awake)!

If you'd like to join in a game, I'll be playing Cartographers from Thunderworks Games and my own Rolling Seas periodically throughout the stream. You'll need to download the following files to join in:

  • Cartographers Maps
  • Rolling Seas Basic Map & Ledger - If you've played before.
  • Rolling Seas Tutorial Map & Ledger - If you're new to Rolling Seas.
  • All Stream Long - I'll be doing the following things throughout the entire event.

  • Extra Life Funding Milestones - Every $25 raised will see me adding another doo-dad to my hair or beard. How silly can you get me looking by the end of the event?
  • Marble Races - I'll be taking breaks from gaming by running some marble races on the awesome marble track that I built earlier this year.
  • Hotwheels Races - If I need to make a decision on what game to play next, I'll let the Hotwheels cars decide on my 20+ foot long hotwheels race track!
  • GIVEAWAYS - I'll be randomly giving away stuff to people watching the event! I'll also do a giveaway at the end of the event where everyone who tuned in can be entered (and get extra entries for donating)! Items being given away will include $5 The Game Crafter gift cards, promo cards from SlugFest Games, Inc. and Pencil First Games, several titles from Grey Gnome Games, and a copy of The Stonebound Saga with the Visions of Telios expansion and promos from Sky Kingdom Games!

In thee first livestream I'll do an unboxing and show off some of the games that will be available in the auction and giveaways from Grey Gnome Games and Sky Kingdom Games. In the second I test a few more features and show off some of the silliness that will happen as I gain donations throughout the event. The third is a preview of the marble and hotwheels races I"ll be running!
