Extra Life Tabletop Appreciation Weekend 2017!

Extra Life has announced their third annual TableTop Appreciation weekend, September 22nd through 24th. As always, you can count on the Malted Meeple to participate in all things Extra Life. This year we will once again be hosting our traditional Meeple Cares Spotlight Marathon!

This year’s marathon will begin on Saturday the 23rd, as we kick off a 12 hour Dungeons & Dragons extravaganza featuring the debut of the Tomb of Annihilation campaign! We will host three spotlight tables of up to six players each. Entry into the marathon requires a donation to Extra Life of $40 or more. Sign up at the Meeple starting today, these seats are sure to go fast!

We will of course also be bringing back our Extra Life exclusive milkshake, #ForTheKidsShake! Stop in any time during the weekend and enjoy a #ForTheKidsShake, and the Malted Meeple will donate 50% of each shake sold to Extra Life and the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals!

Try a #ForTheKidsShake, for the kids’ sake!

At the beginning of this year we set ourselves an aggressive goal for our 2017 Meeple Cares campaign – we are aiming to raise $10,000 for Extra Life and local children’s hospitals. We are well on our way, having raised $9,887 for the benefit of Akron Children’s Hospital so far! Join us September 22nd – 24th for TableTop Appreciation weekend and help push us over the top.
