Gloves does Extra Life 2020!

Huge thanks to @CasualCart for donating his art to the cause!

 

It's that time of year again! As with every year for the last 8 years, I am participating in Extra Life! On November 7th 2020 I will be playing games live on Twitch for 24 straight hours, raising money for Sick Kids. 

 

Here's the quick n' dirty deets:

  • When: November 7th, 2020
    • Starting around 8am, EST
  • Where: Twitch!
  • Donations: Handled through Extra Life
    • Donate here: http://extra-life.org/participant/douglasglover
    • ALL proceeds go toward helping kids in need!
    • Note: You don't HAVE to donate ON Game Day; I can take donations any day of the year, so feel free to toss a coin to your Witcher whenever you feel the urge. 🙂

 

This is a cause that is very close to my heart; kids should be the last to suffer, yet many battle through significant hardships well outside of their comprehension and ability to manage alone. Your donations really do go a long way to help make the Childrens' Miracle Network Hospitals better able to accommodate their needs during the hard times.

This year the state of things has kept me quite busy so I've not been able to really come up with an hour-by-hour plan or anything (not that I ever really follow one anyway!), but per usual I am happy to follow a "Donate and I will play your game of choice" kind of approach. I of course will have games at the ready for the lulls, but there's always that incentive. If you have any ideas of how I might spice things up I'm all ears!

 

Custom Art Auction!

Speaking of spicing things up - that banner looks pretty rad, amirite? It was made by our resident art guy (title pending) CasualCart! And this year in the name of charity he has offered up his pen for the cause - I will be holding an auction here on VGS for 1 week leading up to and ending on November 7th (Game Day!), with the winner receiving a custom piece created for you by CasualCart! There will of course be some stipulations regarding content, but I'll have those ironed out for you all in the auction thread when the time comes.

 

I'm looking forward to another Game Day chilling with you all, playing games and having a good time. I'll update you all in this thread with any news, and the occasional reminder!

Just over half an hour to go until Game Day 2020 starts! Like a kid on Christmas I dragged my sleepy ass out of bed and am now prepping myself mentally and physically for the marathon ahead. 

I've got everything set up, so now I have to... Decide what to play first lol. Probably something slow and easy to wake up a bit.

      Hey Sages,
      You saw round 1, now comin' atcha with round 2!!!!    
      Up for grabs is a CIB Oscar for the SNES!  Please note, once again, condition is not perfect, but we aren't asking perfect prices either!  I would personally have this in my collection as yes, the box is a little less than stellar, but it still looks crisp and pretty.  Pictures are provided and I will be more than happy to take a picture of anything you want, corner, board, label, instruction page 4, you name it and I will do it.  
      @spacepup has graciously provided the game, and is covering all shipping costs, insurance as well for safety for us all, and wants you to donate directly to @Gloves charity link here.

      You didn't think he was done trying to get you to the goal did you @Gloves?  Have you met spacepup?  He is a very generous person.
      To those of you wondering, why don't you list something I can afford.  Well hold on to your butts because Spacepup has said that we should do this as much as possible until the end of the year.  Even lower priced items will be up for auction in the coming days!  Keep on the lookout!!!!  
      Anyway, without further ado,

      Hey Sages,
      Up for grabs is a CIB Conker's Bad Fur Day!  Please note condition is not perfect, but in pretty decent shape for being an N64 game.  Pictures are provided, but I will be more than happy to take more pictures of it if you are wanting them.
