FragforceSF Game Day 2018 - Day 1
FragforceSF is kicking off our fall event to help UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital! Having cracked $110k on our road to $150k team-wide goal this year, we need YOUR help to get over the top. What does this mean for the hospital? It's two ICU beds for newborns, three chemo treatments, or over 90 ambulance rides! Real benefits to real kids who need real help, and you can be part of it!
the MAIN EVENT IS HERE And You're Invited!
Come join your fellow Fragforce HQ team members on Friday, November 2nd and Saturday, November 3rd, from 10am to 10pm, for the marathon of all things gaming, and help us reach our global goal of $150,000! We'll have video games, board games, VR and more and we'll be live-streaming the whole thing online to raise money for Extra Life and the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital. Come for 24 hours, or come for 24 minutes, but come be a part of it!
If you're even a LITTLE curious, this is for YOU!

I don't play games, can i just donate and watch the shenanigans?
- Awesome! First: You can donate here to the team as a whole, or you can contact your favorite extra-lifer and donate direct to them with their link.
- If you'd like to donate onsite and visit, feel free to at any point throughout the event! We'll have VR stations, consoles, boardgames, lots of stuff set up to swing in, drop a donation, and have some fun in your lunch hour!
- If you are stuck to your desk all day Friday, why not jump on the stream? We'll have the footage of the event live on our twitch stream, and we'll be doing all sorts of random things on there throughout the day!
I want to show up and support, but I'm not a gamer, can I volunteer?

Event participant FAQ
How can I learn more? I mean, did you sign up? Sign up! Then join our Chatter group in 62org to keep an eye open for new posts and new shenanigans as we get closer to the date!
Do I need to sign up with Extra Life? Nah, but it helps you raise more money, they give you prebuilt stuff for social media, it can definitely help. That said, you can just register for the event, and show up and have fun. Remember, it's really all for the kids at the end of the day. If you can, register, ask friends, family, enemies, anyone to contribute!
How much do I need to raise to get to go? It's not like that. We'd like to see you pull in at least 25$ per day you intend to arrive, just to ensure that everyone having fun is helping out, not just playing games, but if that's rough we can work it out.
What's supplied vs what do I need to bring? We will have loaner laptops set up and consoles set up for those of you who aren't planning to bring your own rigs. For those of you bringing your rigs, we'll have a wifi network set up specifically for you, desk space, basic keyboard/mouse combos, and a fairly good supply of power outlets and power strips. You'll wanna bring your gaming machine of choice, and any monitors or special equipment with you, including things like HDMI cables, controllers, etc. to ensure that your setup is ready to rock.
I've got board games, can I bring em? Definitely! We recommend you label your games so they don't get lost in the shuffle if others bring the same game. (You wouldn't believe how many people own Munchkin) Also it's recommended you probably not bring legacy games, or at least hold on to the legacy / destructable elements of them to ensure someone doesn't screw up your 80 hour Gloomhaven campaign by accident.
