The 24 hour Game Day for Extra Life is less than a week away, and I can’t wait! After some hurdles I am finally able to live-stream, so this has opened up my plans for the day. Sadly, my new tech came too late for me to reach out and schedule games with other folks, so I’m going to put that plan in my pocket for 2023.
But here in 2022, Game Day is all about Solo TTRPGs. I have split my day into two hour blocks and I’m essentially treating each block as its own live-stream. Within each block I plan to talk a bit about Extra Life, talk with folks in chat, play a solo game, and take a couple of breaks. Not only does this help me focus up a bit on what I’m doing (especially important when I get to the wee hours), but if something happens and I have to stop streaming for a bit, I can drop out a segment or two, then carry on when I get back. And since I plan to keep doing my Solo TTRPG Thursdays until the end of the year and beyond, I can just add any dropped segments to my Thursday lineup.
Assuming everything goes to plan, though, here is my lineup for next Saturday. The order might change, even as late as on the day, but these are the twelve games I picked:
- 8am-10am: Fire Sauce Fever Dream
- 10am-Noon: Beloved
- Noon-2pm: Raising Hell
- 2pm-4pm: Dead Belt
- 4pm-6pm: Sigils in the Dark
- 6pm-8pm: The Witch’s Almanac
- 8pm-10pm: Honey Hex
- 10pm-Midnight: My Welcomed Guest
- Midnight-2am: Riding the Ley Line
- DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME HAPPENS!
- 1am-3am: Knight Astray
- 3am-5am: The Machine
- 5am-7am: Ego
All times MST.
I feel like this is a good mix of genre, style, mood, and tone. They might not appeal to everyone, but I’m hoping everyone will find at least one or two blocks they want to check out with me. And of course, if you can’t sleep and want some help with that, swing by the early morning blocks and say hi; I’ll put on my soothing “midnight to 4am radio DJ” voice and knock you right out.
Anyway, that’s my cunning plan. I also have a bunch of stuff to give away: an Extra Life puzzle, copies of games, download codes, gift cards to DriveThruRPG. I’m going to play those giveaways by ear, so stop on by and get lucky! And of course, all the incentives and special offers and items on my Extra Life donation page will stay in play, on Game Day and for the rest of the year.
It’s going to be a good time, I hope you’ll stop by at least for a bit and make a donation if you can. And if you are a creator of Solo TTRPGs, with priority to marginalized creators, please reach out so I can add you to my Thursday night play list for the rest of the year. I would love to feature your game!
