GASP is starting year two in our new home for our monthly Games Days, the Baldwin Community United Methodist Church. The location is closer to Pittsburgh and the surrounding communities, has ample parking, tons of space, and is close to plenty of food options.

Games Days have been scheduled for all of 2018. 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.

2018 DATES
• January 20th (third Saturday)
• February 10th
• March 10th
• April 14th
• May 12th
• June 9th
• July 14th
• August 11th
• September 8th
• October 13th
• November 10th
• December 15th (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 January 2018 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.

• Several RPG campaigns are 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, Test of Honour and Ronin, Frostgrave, Legends of the Old West, various Osprey wargames, and many 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!

What can I say, this has probably been the longest running miniature game at Games Day. Several games were played throughout the day, as people prepared for the Tank Wars tournament coming up at Cold Wars.

I didn't get a chance to play, but a few others played two games of this latest Osprey title. Futuristic vehicle combat with guns? Yes please.

Played several games with Liam, by the end he was getting the hang of the abstract strategy of this game. He even won a few games.

Once again Liam's pitching was far superior to my meager batting skills. First batter was thrown out heading to first, and the next two were struck out.

Our 6-month campaign continued yesterday with a few games played. My lawmen were corned near the livery by the vicious banditos. Through some excellent marksmanship I was able to drive the bandits back, but not before Doc Scurlock was again captured by the ruthless gang. The sheriff has not yet heard the price it will take to return his deputy.

Played on game, using some US bombers this time. We are still figuring out a good balance for the game, how many Sabres are good vs how many MiGs?

Pulled this Milton Bradley classic out and got in a 4-player game at the end of the evening. It's probably been 20 years since I played this one. I love the initial set-up rules, and the whole ninja aspect is a nice novelty.

Started the day with this strange rummy like 2 player card game. I appreciated it, needs a player aid though.

This was a really nifty drafting and abstract-like game. I played twice, really enjoyed both plays.

Ended the night with a 4 player game of this. I hadn't played it 4 players until now. Houses get bought super quickly and I failed to adapt this, that and some bad luck for me made me not win. Boards fill up quick!

I learned this game. Somewhat fiddly, and the game ends abruptly. not sure it's one I would buy, but it's not overly long to play.

Played a couple games of this. I'm not sure about the balance in the game, but maybe a 3 player would have been a different game.
