Hey there! We are getting ready for Extra Life Game Day 2018, which is a fundraising gaming marathon to support the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals. The Stay-At-Home Gamers crew is raising money for our local Children's Hospital of Wisconsin.

The kids are excited to participate in this charity streaming event with us, especially since it to help other kids. We have used the Children's Hospital of Wisconsin's services and know others who do as well.

We are planning two full days of livestreaming board games and video games on the Stay-At-Home Gamers Facebook page. It's going to be a fun and interesting couple of days! Our goal is to raise $1000. Below you will find our tentative game schedule and donation incentives.

You can donate through our Extra Life fundraising page even if you aren't able to join us on game day.

We are a family of gamers. Mom (Darcy/Syrana) and Dad (Brian/Sideshow) have been gaming for as long as they can remember back when you only had a joystick to use and saved your games to cassette tapes.

They've been gaming together since they met in 2002. Sometime after 2006, they both started playing World of Warcraft and did that for many years. They started this blog, originally called Sideshow & Syrana which has now transitioned to the new Stay-At-Home Gamers site, while keeping all of the original content.

Starting in 2010, two more gamers came along (now known as Princess Boo and Mr. X) and they are now old enough where they both enjoy playing games and watching others play games. They are both excited to have others to watch them play their favorite games. Come along with us and let's enjoy these games together!
