Rank #10: 191: Extra Life Charity event – Andrew and Thadeous play Dungeons & Dragons
Thadeous C joins Andrew, Jeannie, and Patrick to discuss the upcoming Extra Life charity event. Tune in to the official D&D and/or ASTRO Gaming Twitch channels on Friday, October 24th at 6:30 PM Pacific time to see Thadeous and Andrew play in a special Dungeons and Dragons adventure. You’ll have a chance to win some pretty cool swag, and your donations and interaction via chat or Twitter during the game will also be able to influence the outcome of the events at the table. What’s not to love?! Speaking of donations, you can donate money to the hospital that saved Andrew’s life when he was but a wee lad, Riley Hospital for Children in Indiana. Even better: your money will count twice, as Andrew has pledged to double all donations for the first $1,000 donated via that page! Why not hit him in the wallet and get your friends and family to chip in $5 or $10 bucks wherever they can? It’s tax-deductible, and for a truly good cause. (Also don’t worry: in this episode, the crew talks about The Flash, Gotham, X-Men, and all the other nerdy stuff you’d expect.)
