Meeple Cares Star Wars Marathon – Nov 7th!

Meeple Cares Star Wars Marathon – Nov 7th!


A few weeks ago we announced Meeple Cares, and shortly thereafter held our first gaming marathon for the benefit of Extra Life and children’s hospitals. The event was a great success, with guests enjoying a 12 hour marathon Dungeons & Dragons session and other great activities.

We had so much fun with the Meeple Cares Marathon that we’ve decided to hold another! November 7th, we will be participating in Extra Life’s official Game Day. As November just happens to be our second Star Wars Celebration month (more details on that later), our event will be entirely Star Wars themed!

Join us for the Meeple Cares Star Wars Mega Marathon, and enjoy:

• A twelve hour Star Wars Edge of Empire role playing marathon!
• A twelve hour Star Wars Miniature marathon – featuring X-Wing, Armada and Imperial Assualt!
• A return visit by the Stormtroopers of the 501st Legion: Vader’s Fist!
• Three brand new Star Wars milkshakes!
• Mega Marathon Giveaway!

We are adding a new twist for this event, a giveaway! Every five dollar donation receives one entry in the Mega Marathon Giveaway, for a chance to win some amazing prizes, including:

• First Prize: A two night stay for two at Ravenwood Castle!
• Second Prize: A one year individual membership to The Malted Meeple!
• Third Prize: To be announced!

When we launched Meeple Cares, we set ourselves what we felt was an aggressive goal for our first year of fundraising – $1,000. Amazingly, with your help we exceeded that amount in our very first event! So we’re doing the only thing we can – we’re doubling the goal! We raised $1,000 for UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital at the last event, so we’re aiming to match that and raise $1,000 for Akron Children’s Hospital with this one!

Stop in on November 7th and celebrate Extra Life’s Game Day with us. Make an onsite donation to Extra Life of $10 or more, we will waive your table fee and enter you in the giveaway drawing!

Better yet, sign up for a seat at one of our spotlight tables and take part in a twelve hour marathon of Star Wars role playing or Star Wars miniature gaming! Each spotlight seat requires a donation of $40 to Extra Life, and includes eight entries into our Mega Marathon Giveaway! Space is extremely limited. There are only six seats available for Edge of Empire and four seats for the miniatures table, so call us at 330.655.6919 or email us at to reserve your spot today.

If you’re not able to join us on site, you can still enter the Mega Marathon Giveaway! Just visit our Extra Life donation link and click “Support Me” to make your tax deductible donation! You will receive one entry into the giveaway for every $5 you donate between now and the drawing on November 7th.

Join us for the Meeple Cares Star Wars Mega Marathon, and help raise money for the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!
