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!

Still a standard occurrence at Games Day, there were many games played. I played one 1000pt game, and we rolled for a Meeting Engagement scenario. My Germans vs. Dave's US.

I picked this game up recently, and was really looking forward to playing it - I was not disappointed. Fast and simple mechanics, but enough depth of play and tough decisions throughout. I don't know much about the period, but this game seemed to capture the feel of the conflict that unified Japan during that time. Looking forward to playing again.

Yup, another 3 player game. It was 3 player madness! With different players usually.

Learned this one with 6 players! Took longer than expected, and is different enough from power grid to need a different mindset when playing.

Learned to play the climate version of evolution. If I had know it was possible to have a meteor strike, I would have been trying to cause it to happen!

An interesting concept, as all the reviews would lead you to believe. I was the Dragon and won handily, but can't say whether that's because I was doing things right or other people were doing them wrong.

The downside is that because the roles are so very different from each other, I still only know how to play 1/5 of the game and would have to play it four more times to really get a feel for it. Odds of that happening before it stops being "the Hotness" are slim at best...

We had 8 players, including two new players. We ended up deciding on a dog fight, rather than a balloon run because of the rookies. The Germans got the jump on the British and it got pretty ugly pretty fast.

Bohnanza the Dice Game. Not sure why this isn't readily available in the US, given the popularity of dice variants. It doesn't really feel like Bohnanza, but is a fun game in it's own right.
