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!

Got in a 6pt game of Saga, Pat's Anglo-Danish vs. my Crusaders. We are still earning the nuances of the game, especially how best to use your battle-board abilities. My Crusaders are pretty straight forward, but the Anglo-Danish are all about giving out fatigue and take some time to catch on to the BB.

I picked this game up last year, very inexpensive air combat game that is print and play. The basic rules are free on the website, and you pay a few dollars for each aircraft you want. Then you can print as many as you like. Jim and I played this a couple times, but it fell off my radar due to other projects (and at the time the limited selection of aircraft). Jim recently picked-up more places, including some bombers, so we tried them. It was 4 B-17s and two flights of Mustangs (Jim) vs 2 flights of Me-109Gs (Me) and 2 flights of Me-262s (Steve).

We had a blast and I am going to look at picking up some more aircraft.

I picked this game up last year from a buddy at GENCON, still shrink-wrapped, and final had a chance to play it at Games Day. It has some unique mechanics that differentiate it from other A&A titles, and I did enjoy the game. Looking forward to getting more plays in.

Pat was the Axis and I was the Allies. He was able to win in turn 5.

Only 1 game of BA was played this month, a 1000pt US (me) vs German (Pat). We rolled the Manhunt scenario, and Pat won the roll-off and choose to defend.

Pat was trying out his new Jagdpanther, and it did take out my M7 Priest in its first shot!

After the first turn of durrr "we all kind of remember how to play but can't recall how" it went smooth, I ended up winning with a bunch of people mans and a few canals.

Real funny thing is I saw it earlier in the day and I was like Oh, I would like to play this.

Still don't like this one even though I won. It's not a bad game, I just don't like it.
