Extra Life is a great gaming charity event that was started by Sarcastic Gamer as a way to encourage video gamers to have fun and raise money for kids who face battles with medical problems in hospitals around the world.
Gamers pick their hospital, pledge to play games for 24 hours, and try to get sponsors to donate as little as $1 per hour. It's all done electronically via the Children's Miracle Network and 100% of every dollar donated makes it to the hospitals and the kids.
In 2010, the folks at Game Salute started encouraging any kind of gamer to get involved. Board games, card games, RPG's, whatever. And we at the D6 Generation thought ... Brilliant! We're in. So we're back this year to do it again!
If you'd like to help, there are a couple of options.
Option 1: Sponsor to your favorite D6G Personality
Craig's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here
Raef's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here
Russ's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here
Nicole's Extra Life Donation Page: Click Here
Option 2: Participate yourself!
Come on, you're a gamer!! Why not sign up, get a pledge or two, and have a GREAT excuse to game all day!
To join, head on over to the Game Salute page as it will tell you how to jump in AND how to get on the same team as the D6 Generation. And you never know, there is a good chance we'll be sending out some prizes to the folks on our team that do well. Click here for more info on how to get involved.

Shout Out Rule: 140 Character Limit!
The D6 Generation shout outs area a way that we can let folks who support the show be a part of it at the same time. About a week before a new episode airs we'll reach out to our patrons at the "3+ Level" or higher and ask for shout outs!
Want to smack talk a friend? No problem. Wish someone a happy birthday? Sure. Promote an event or club? Perfect. Even give props to your favorite store or company!
The only rules are that it has to be family friendly (PG-13), short (140 character limit), and we do reserve the right to proof your 'shout out' and recommend changes if it is inappropriate for the show.
Any of our "3+ Level" patrons can respond with a shout out to the request, and the first 5 to do so will be used in the show. The hosts will assign the shout outs to the various segments with them (Rapid Fire, Achievements, Total Fan Girl, The News, and DYEN). If more that 5 "3+ Level" patrons submit quickly, we'll rotate so everyone can get a chance.
For full details on how to become a patron of the show and get into the shout out pool visit:

You’ve heard us talk about dozens of great book recommendations for gamers on the show. But when can you find time to read them? Audio books are the answer, and there is no better resource for audio books than Audible.
The D6 Generation is extremely proud to have Audible as a sponsor of the show. We take great pride in the fact that our sponsors represent the best in their industry, and Audible is certainly a fantastic example of the best way to enjoy books while commuting, on a road trip, at the gym, painting, or even organizing your favorite board game.
“I’ve been a happy Audible subscriber since 2004 and built up a library of over 270 books! Their service has allowed me to enjoy books wherever I go no matter what device I use. And their library is second to none. You’ve heard me compare Malifaux to Steven King’s Dark Tower series. Want to read it? It’s on Audible. Looking for more obscure geek books based on Halo, Mass Effect, or Starcraft? They’ve got those too. What about steam punk like Bonecrusher or Leviathan? They’ve got those as well. And you can’t beat the price. I give Audible a 2+ with a re-roll. ” – Russ Wakelin
But the best part is you can try the whole system out free for 14 days and get a free audio book which is yours to keep.
Click here to help support the show, get a free book to keep, and a free trial offer from Audible for D6G listeners.

Howdy D6G Fans,
We had a bit of a SNAFU in Episode 42 and originally forgot to include the Space Hulk results in the show!
We've corrected this issue and uploaded a corrected version of Episode 42. The new version was published late on Oct. 27th, 2009.
If you downloaded episode 42 on 10/28/2009 or later, you've got the corrected version of the epsiode.
If you downloaded the show on 10/27 or earlier, simply re-download the episode. The correct Episode 42 should have a running time of 3:35 minutes. The Space Hulk results are near the end of the show just after the 3 hr 6 min mark.
Sorry about all that folks.
Thanks for listening,
The D6G Team
