TooManyGames, which is now in its 12th year, is a convention run for gamers, by gamers. Paul Truitt, co-founder and co-owner says, “I love holding TooManyGames to bring gamers of all ages together to celebrate the culture of gaming. We have classics like Nintendo, to newer consoles like the PS4, and we work to cover everything fun about video games and board games. We create a real connection when we get together to play games, that’s what makes the gaming community so great.”
The show is once again hosting a gaming for charity event run by Extra Life, and funds raised will benefit The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP). Extra Life will also be on the show floor recruiting gamers and sharing how playing games can help benefit sick children in over 170 different Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the United States and Canada.
