We are a small discord of 5-6k Twilight Imperium 4th Edition boardgame players that are having a world championship tournament and charity brawl to raise funds for "Healers without Galaxies" or as it is known here on earth...
Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) treats people where the need is greatest. We are an international medical humanitarian organisation.
Given the current Global pandemic, playing online via Tabletop Simulator and giving to DWB/MSF seemed most appropriate.
We have teams from the US, UK, Canada, Europe, Australia/New Zealand, and an international coalition of players from around the globe. All games (outside of the Free agent bracket) will be live on twitch.tv.
We have a series of games and events scheduled for the entire month of november into december:
6 Regionally-hosted team games - 1 player from each team playing a a different slice and faction in each game.
A Free Agent Bracket - Play along with 5 other free agent brawlers for bragging rights, in games recreating the 6 team games and a chance to particiapte in the World Championship Brawl!
A silent auction where you can bid on a chance to add additional "Shenanigans" to the 2 charity games: create your own action card, design a hilarious objective, have your own nefarious agenda, etc. (subject to approval)
A team captains "mulligan" charity match - where the team captains replay their teams worst map and faction choices to try and prove they really could do better. While the twitch.tv audience donates to charity in order to provide both "surprises" and boosts to their favorite team.
A final World Charity BRAWL - with more audience participation on twitch.tv where the the winner gets crowned as the 2020 World Championship Brawler.
Feel free to donate or come by and follow along as 6 teams representing 6 different world regions battle it out and help MSP/DWB put the hurt on the global pandemic and other pressing medical catastrophes.
