The Gaming Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania (GASP) gathers on the 2nd Saturday of every month (baring any scheduling conflicts with the rental facility) in Pittsburgh, PA for 12+ hours of gaming, 10am to 11pm. Everyone is invited... veteran and new gamers alike. A typical Games Day has 50-75 people attending and playing a multitude of games, with every genre of games represented... miniatures, roleplaying, CCGs, and (most importantly) tons of boardgames. If you're in the area, please stop by.
Our new location is now the Holy Family Manor, near West View & Bellevue in the North Hills. It is about 10 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, via I279 North and the Perrysville exit. This venue offers spacious rental facilities at a very reasonable price. Please note that GASP is not affiliated with any religious organization.
Cost:: $5 (first time attendees are free)
March 8th and 22nd (all Knights and yearly payees attend for free March 22nd)
November – No Games Day due to GASPcon

Game Days run from 10am until 11pm, and are open to everyone. There is a small fee per person ($5) to attend Games Day, to cover the cost of the rental hall. This fee is waived for all first-time attendees. The fee will be collected when you arrive, and will grant access to all the games contributed by our members, for use that day.
Speaking of games, there are always a multitude of board, card, role-playing, and miniature games being played on any given Game Day, but a few events are near constants.
• Our Multi-Player Magic League runs each Game Day, starting around 11am. It’s a league that runs Jan-Oct. There is a second league starting at 4:30PM with modified rules and decks, please read the forum post for more information.
• Several RPG campaigns are also run each Game Day, including our "One-Shot Saturdays", stand-alone adventures run by various GMs each month.
• There are several miniature games that regularly appear at each Game Day. These vary each month, but some examples are X-Wing, Lord of the Rings, Firestorm Armada, Dystopian Wars, Axis and Allies: War at Sea & Angels 20, BattleTech, AT-43, Infinity, and others.
• Don’t forget our extensive board game contingent. You can always find players for a board game, whether you bring your own or try out one of the many titles our BGers own and bring each month to our Games Library.
We ask that everyone attending our Game Days brings something along as a snack and/or drink, for the community to share in. The facility has a full kitchen, so items that need refrigerated are OK. Most people bring some pop, chips, cookies, veggie tray, etc. This helps everyone have a good time without worrying about snacks or drinks. We do place a group pizza order around 4PM for those interested. The cost is $5 and this gets you 4 slices of pizza (various toppings). Our members really like this, as it frees them from having to disrupt their games just to get some dinner. There are also plenty of other food options in the nearby West View shopping centers.
See you at Games Day!
