24 hours of beers and board games

Written by on October 20, 2017 in Beer, Events - No comments

The Beers & Board Games Club of Columbus (which is organized by Drink Up Columbus) will host our third annual 24-hour gaming marathon to benefit Nationwide Children’s Hospital on November 4 at Four String Brewing’s Hilltop production brewery.

The event is part of Extra Life, a global 24-hour gaming marathon fundraiser for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. Since 2008, Extra Life has raised more than $30 million to help children’s hospitals, with Beers & Board Games contributing more than $12,000 locally to Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

The November 4 Beers & Board Games event will feature over a hundred tabletop board games and even a few console games like Mario Kart and Super Smash Bros. Gamers are welcome to stay for the entire event, or just drop in to play for a few hours. Admission to the event is $10, 100% of which will be donated to Nationwide Children’s Hospital through Extra Life.

Admission includes one raffle ticket which can be allocated toward any package in the pick-a-prize raffle featuring items perfect for gaming nerds (Tabletop Game Cafe, Trapped Escape Room, Kingmakers, The Chamber, Escape It Grandview), hop heads (101 Beer Kitchen, Columbus Beerfest, Barley’s Brewing, Endeavor Brewing, MadTree Brewing, Actual Brewing, World of Beer, The Ohio Taproom) and more (Jeni’s Ice Creams, Claddagh, Hashtag Comedy, CBC Restaurant, Camelot Cellars) Additional raffle tickets can be purchased for $5 each, or 6 for $20. The raffle drawing will take place at midnight, however you will not need to be present to win. (Thank you to all our generous donors!)

Four String will also be donating $1 from every beer sold, and the food trucks at the event will be donating 10% of food sales: Pingweeni’s will be serving from 11:30am-2:30pm, Ajumama from 4pm-8pm, Late Night Slice from 9pm-midnight, and The Cluckwagon for breakfast Sunday morning from 7am-10am. A bake sale will also take place during the event with all proceeds benefitting Children’s Hospital.

The Beers & Board Games 24-Hour Board Game Marathon will take place from 11am on Saturday, November 4 through 10am* on Sunday, November 5 at Four String Brewing, located at 660 N Hague Avenue. If you are planning to attend, please RSVP on Facebook! If you can’t make it but still want to show your support, you can donate to anyone on our roster.

*If you’re wondering why this “24 hour gaming event” looks like it’s only 23 hours (11am-10am) it’s because we set our clocks back smack in the middle of this event!
