If there was one panel I was looking forward to the most at GGC ‘16, it was The Women of Nerdcore. Featuring artists SAMMUS and Shubzilla, this panel focused on the interplay between music and geek culture and the female identity in traditionally male dominated fields.

Raise Some “Extra Life” for Seattle Children’s Hospital!

“Extra Life?” you ask. “What’s all this about?”

I’m glad you asked!

Extra Life is a tabletop game tournament that raises money for hospitals in the Children’s Miracle Network. Here in Seattle, this means all the money raised will go to Seattle Children’s Hospital–an amazing place where kids and their families experience so much every day, and they can always use our help. All the players and Dungeon Masters are taking pledges for their 48 hours of gameplay, starting this Friday, October 2, at 12pm!
