Description

Are You Ready for the One Game Night to Rule Them All?

So every year Extra Life, an online grassroots effort that's part of the Children’s Miracle Network, holds a 24-hour gaming marathon to benefit a Local Children’s Hospital. Last year Triangle Game Night was invited to be a part of it and we had an absolute blast. This year we're teaming up with the Extra Life Raleigh/Durham Guild and The Nest in Downtown Raleigh (seen below) for a massive gaming marathon unlike any other!


Both Video Gamers and Board Gamers alike will unite to play games for 24 hours, well technically 25 hours straight (Thanks Daylight Savings Time) to raise money for the Duke Children's Hospital. Our goal is to raise $1,000 this year!
