Gaming and Cooking for the Kids: Extra Life 2013


It’s that time of year. Time to start prepping for a 24 hour gaming fest with my friends at Team Hypercube! Last year, they played video games for 24 hours straight while I made 24 hours of video game-inspired food and we livestreamed the whole thing. This year, we’re at it again! On November 2nd, we’ll be participating in Extra Life with games, special guests, food, prizes, and other surprises. In addition to joining them for games, I’ll be making the following:

Breakfast #1
Caffeinated Snack(s)
Breakfast #2

If you have any ideas of food from or inspired by video games that you’d like to see me make, let me know in the comments! Last year items included Team Fortress 2’s Sandvich, a caffeinated “health potion,” and a Yoshi Egg Scramble. I’m excited to start brainstorming more recipes! I’ll post the recipes and hopefully some video from the event after. You’ll also be able to tune in and see me cook them live throughout the day. I’ll do a post on November 2nd with a schedule and a link to the livestream.

Extra Life isn’t all just fun and games–it’s also a fundraiser for the Seattle Children’s hospital. If you’re interested in pledging a bit of money to make us go through it, you can do so on my fundraising page. I raised over $500 last year and would love to top that this year! If you do donate, let me know if there’s a certain game you’d like to see us play or a recipe you’d like me to make. Donors get first pick!
