Event Highlight: Toys of Boundless Wonder

Thursday, November 10, 2022

Greetings, Pathfinders and Starfinders! In the spirit of the holiday season, I want to take a moment to highlight a charity event in our community. I think it’s a wonderful cause, and it’s one you can get involved with at your local game store!

Venture Captains Nicholas Ruchlewicz (Northern Virginia) and Jimmy Dick (Missouri) have put together an event called Toys of Boundless Wonder! From November 25 to December 10, they’ll be scheduling Organized Play games in their local stores. These stores have been selected as Toys for Tots dropoff locations, so players will be able to play games and bring or purchase toys and games to donate to the charity.

Games during this event will award players bonus Achievement Points, which can be used in our online boon store to unlock new character options and ancestries. Additionally, on Saturday, December 10 they’ll be running the new Pathfinder Society interactive special event, Pathfinder Society Scenario #3-98: Expedition into Pallid Peak! The tables will all work together to delve into the dungeon and explore its treasures.

Best of all, you can join in on this event! Organizers who are interested can contact Nicholas at novaorganizedplay@gmail.com to information on how to sign up. Any participating store can earn the same rewards, and participate in the interactive special, no matter where you are in the country!

Toys for Tots is a charity toy drive run by the United States Marine Corps (USMC). For 75 years, they’ve collected new toys to send to families in need, to ensure that their children have a happy holiday season. Retailers who register as a Toys for Tots dropoff location can see increased foot traffic from community members looking to donate to a worthy cause.

I am so grateful Alex for helping us expand our outreach! Toys for Tots event is something I threw together in 2017, and it has gained more and more. Thousands and thousands of toys have been collected. It is an amazing event, and a win, win experience for us. We can grow OP and help our FLGS grow their outreach.

We prefer to update a blog as little as possible once it is posted, but additional stores can be listed here in the discussion. If Alex and I see a great increase in participating stores we might post a new blog,
