TOG Joins the Extra-Life Gaming Marathon!

Every once in a while an opportunity comes along to be a part of something bigger than ourselves, and to reach out and help those who are in desperate need. And sometimes that opportunity takes the form of something we also love to do. So we're very pleased to announce that Theology of Games has joined the Extra-Life gaming marathon that will take place on November 2nd!

What is this? A gaming marathon? How does that help others? We're glad you asked... Read on!


Here are the basics -

1 - Sign up. You can either join a team, or create your own.

2 - Tell people what you're doing.

3 - Send them links to your team page and kindly ask for their sponsorship.

4 -  Play games from 8:00 am Nov. 2 - 8:00 am Nov 3.

ALL of the proceeds go to the Children's Miracle Network Hospital of your choice. The hospital I (Jeremiah) am supporting is Akron Children's Hospital. I live about 5 minutes from this hospital, and we have been blessed to have such a great and top notch medical facility nearby to help us care for our boys.

Here are some more details about Team TOG -

Come play games with us at the Root!

We (and when I say we, I mean Jeremiah) will be playing games at the Root Cafe, 852 Bath Rd. Cuyahoga Falls, OH, 44223. If you want to join us and be a part of the team, GREAT! If you just want to come and play for a few hours, GREAT! Or if you just want to support our efforts financially, GREAT! Karolyn at the Root has been gracious enough to make the venue available to us for the full 24 hours. I plan to schedule out the day with different events; we'll Skype in game designers to chat about the games we're playing, and all sorts of fun stuff! Plus we'll have a great supply of food and caffeinated beverages to keep us going! We'll have more details available as they get worked out!

If you'd like to join us or support us you can find our team page right here!

Thanks so much for reading, we'll be sending out updates about the event on all of our social media outlets, so make sure you check us out on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube! And don't forget, we're podcasters now too!

Get Your Game On! June 21-2013

Come play games with us at the Root! This Friday, June 21st from 7-11 will be a night of tabletop gaming at the Root Cafe, hosted by me: Jeremiah Isley.

This will be our second monthly meeting and I'm working away in the background for a few special surprises, so stay tuned for more information there!

The Root Cafe, is a great little coffee shop in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. My wife and I go there often to relax, chat, and write, and through our frequent visits we've gotten to know the manager, Karolyn, fairly well. The Root is packed with great atmosphere, delicious beverages, and some great tables for gaming! I pitched the idea of a game night to Karolyn and she was all for it!

What we're hoping to accomplish with these gatherings is to introduce the hobby to folks who may think of Monopoly when you mention board games, and also give folks who are into the hobby a fun, relaxed, welcoming atmosphere to enjoy their gaming and the chance to meet other folks in the area who share the same interests.

We'll be playing -

Plus a few prototypes of unreleased games! (More info on this coming soon!)

I would love to meet you, and game with you; if you're nearby please come on out!

The Root is located at - 852 W Bath Rd, Cuyahoga Falls, OH.
