We Received a Medal for Our Extra Life Efforts!

Extra Life 2018 has come and gone, but the story is’t quite over just yet. As part of signing up as an Extra Life Platinum member and raising as much as we did for the Children’s Miracle Network of Hospitals, we unlocked the silver medal!

It’s a wonderful symbol of everything great that came out that experience! To top it off, I got it engraved with each team member’s first initial to make sure the whole team was represented on this memento. It means so much more with this added touch!

Earlier this week, I took the time to mount it on my wall. Now every time I stream, you can see the medal in the back to commemorate the hard work, great times, and positive impact we made on the world as a team!

One more time, the thank you list! It’s admittedly a copy/paste with some slight edits, but it’s still relevant and still means just as much!

  • Thank you to all of the donors whose generosity will help improve the lives of patients and staff at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto!
  • Thank you to my wife and Executive Producer of the marathon, Steff. She helped with the planning of virtually every aspect of this marathon, including all of the work behind the scenes to ensure that everyone was comfortable throughout this insane journey.
  • Thank you to my cousin Adrienne for lending us her photography lights and backdrop.
  • Thank you to the team! Randy, Jenna, Mat, Jon, Jason, Laura, Kris, Rachel, Michelle, Jascha, Janis, and Dusty. You’re all rock stars and your time and effort towards supporting the cause was (and still is) greatly appreciated! Couldn’t have done this without you.
  • Thank you to everyone who tuned in! We hope that we put on a great show for you and your support helped us get through this difficult-but-fun marathon!

This was an amazing experience and I can’t wait to pick up where we left off for the 2019 campaign!

Advance Wars Live Stream

Long before war got its “groove” back, Nintendo paved the way for turn-based strategy games with mainstream appeal with Advance Wars! You won’t need a time machine to relive the fight. Just watch the VOD as we play through the first few levels and have a great chat about the Nintendo Direct that hadn’t happened just yet at the time of recording, games that expanded our horizons, our favourite tactics games and more!

We got our Extra Life 2018 Medal!

Obstacles That Arise When Making Board Game Related Video Content

There was a time in early 2017 where I started a video show about board games. “Cleverly” titled Board Game Talk, it was an opportunity to try a new style of content creation while being able to share my thoughts on a medium I love. I’m glad to have given it a shot, and some of the videos would actually go on to perform pretty well by my standards.

By the end of season one though, I knew I wasn’t ready to go further. Though I do have a desire to someday come back to this concept, I’ll need to overcome these hurdles in order to make the content I want at a level I’m happy with.
