This was the last Games Day of 2016, and also the last Games Day at the Springdale location. Starting in 2017, we are moving to a new venue, see details below.

Games Days have been scheduled for all of 2017. Except for a few instances, we were able to keep the 2nd Saturday of the month. See below for the schedule, it will be updated as needed. Note one of these dates will be cancelled for GASPcon 17, we just don't know which one yet.

2017 Dates
• January 14th
• February 18th (third Saturday)
• March 11th
• April 1st (first Saturday)
• May 13th
• June 10th
• July 22nd (fourth Saturday)
• August 12th
• September 9th
• October 14th
• November 11th
• December 16th (third Saturday)

The address for the church is located at the bottom of the page

Game Days run from 10am till 10pm, 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. Since we are starting in a new home, we will restart yearly payments again. You can sign-up for yearly payments at the December 2016 or January 2017 Games 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 Bolt Action, X-Wing, Lord of the Rings, Firestorm Armada, Dystopian Wars, Axis and Allies: War at Sea & Angels 20, BattleTech, MERCS, 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 soda, chips, cookies, veggie tray, etc. This helps everyone have a good time without worrying about snacks or drinks.

See you at Games Day!

Several games of Frostgrave were played, with a bunch of new players for our ongoing campaign. If you are interested in jumping in, make a standard warband and see us at the next Games Day.

At least two games of BA were played at Games Day. I brought my Germans but did not get a chance to play unfortunately.

Had two 4-players games, to kick-off the campaign for the game. ToEE is a challenging take on the D&D boardgames, but hopefully the campaign system will allow the players to rise to the challenge.

Played a couple two player rounds of this newish game in the Race for the Galaxy universe. I'm curious to check it out with more players, as there a bunch of cards that trigger off of opponent cards, which probably weren't fully realized in the 2-player game.

Second play of this great game from last year. We played the "long game" which includes a bunch of extra cards and drafting. It didn't feel significantly longer, though there were some more decisions to make.

I'm so excited that we've managed to get Dawn Patrol sessions going for 3 months running now. Carl brought a bomber scenario, with British Sopwith 1 1/2 Strutter 2-seaters vs German Albatross D.IIs and a bunch of ground fire. Cool stuff.

Only had two players, so some of the theft cards were turned off (not sure that's a big drawback). An okay get-this-to-build-that sort of game; would play it again but it didn't strike me as anything special. (Not nearly as much fun as the Castles of Burgundy card game, for instance; also not nearly as confusing or complicated.)

Kinda points salad, but fun. Would move quickly on a second play.

The dice drafting is a neat twist (played with three players, so nobody was left out of the draft), but the game never really caught fire for me. Still about a thousand more setup variations to play, though...

Played with the Chocolatl expansion (and only used the chocolate part), which does cool things for the game play.
