Week 4 – Game Night 3 and 4 – Champion Crowned!

Welcome back to our Extra Life Board Game Challenge blog updates! Apologies for the delay in getting this update posted. Rachel has been suffering a pretty brutal flu all week and she’s been crashing more or less every night after work slowing down our challenge progress. Don’t worry we’re still working away and will make up the time in December if we have to. As a reminder we are doing this board game challenge, playing games every night for five…

I’m a little late getting this Extra Life Charity Challenge update up and I’m sorry about that!  Rachel and I have both been sick and I was away in Philadelphia for the weekend that has made keeping up with our challenge, well challenging.  But we’re back and we’ve been playing multiple games every day to keep up with our timeline.

Extra Life Weekend Catch Up & Week 1 Game Nights 3 and 4

Extra Life Weekend Catch Up & Week 1 Game Nights 3 and 4

What a crazy weekend of charity fundraising fun we had!  As I’ve mentioned before I do two things to support Extra Life: 1) Rachel and I do our month long board game tournament challenge and 2) a 24 hour gaming marathon to raise funds. This past weekend was the 24 hour charity marathon and it was a huge success!  I’m a little exhausted (24 hours with bronchitis is a bit of a body beating) but thrilled that we managed to…
