We are hosting our official 24 hour long Extra Life event on November 7th at Level Up Games in St. Paul, Minnesota and live on Youtube through  The Media Cows. Our team is very excited to have a wonderful space and such gracious hosts to share in this great cause.

Not sure what Extra Life is?
Extra Life is a grass roots charity started in 2008 after a young lady named Victoria Enmon lost her battle against acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Through a 24 hour video game marathon her friends and family were able to raise $300 thousand dollars for Texas Childrens Hospital. After realizing the potential of the gaming community Extra Life became a movement that allowed other gamers around the country to become a part of something great.

    • Hey Justin,

      The event starts at Midnight on the 27th and will be online only until the store opens at 10am. You can show up and watch anytime during the day!

      We will also be allowing attendees to participate during breaks and play games with us!

  1. For Magic Players that know of my events at local conventions, I will be bringing my Archenemy, PlaneChase and Vanguard decks to host Archenemy and Quantum Leap. I will have extra decks but feel free to bring your own Legacy legal deck.
