One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Gaming for a Cure is a very special event during which gamers come together and play games for great causes. It’s a convention that takes place in northern Michigan where all proceeds go to benefit cancer research all throughout the United States. Gaming for a Cure holds three events each year, and this weekend will be the group’s winter event, taking place on February 22nd.

Taking place at the TC War Room inside TC Paintball, Gaming for a Cure will host several game demos for players – both new and old – to enjoy with one another. The event will kick off at 10AM and run until 10PM, offering plenty of time to get some valuable gaming in. From the event’s Facebook page, here’s what you can expect at the event:

The official schedule for GFAC Winter Campaign 2014 (times are somewhat flexible, but we will try to fit these demos into the following timeframe):
