GASP (Gaming Association of Southwestern Pennsylvania) meets once per month for our Games Days. It is the 2nd Saturday of the month (barring any scheduling conflict), and the location is now the Holy Family Manor, near West View and Bellevue in the North Hills (about 10 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, via I279 North and the Perrysville exit). This venue offers spacious rental facilities at a reasonable price.

GASP is not affiliated with any religious organization. Like our friend Amy Farrah Fowler, we don’t object to the concept of a deity, but we’re baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

2013 Dates
• January 5th (1st Saturday)
• February 9th
• March 9th
• April 13th
• May 4th (1st Saturday)
• June 8th
• July 13th
• August 3rd (1st Saturday)
• September 14th
• October 5th (1st Saturday)
• November (No Games Day due to GASPcon)
• December 14th

Directions are located at http://www.gaspgamer.com/news/GASP%20Games%20Days%20Directio...

Game Days run from 10am till 11pm (an extra hour of gaming for 2013), 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. We have a member-donated board game library each month, where members bring in their games for everyone to use for the day.

Visit www.gaspgamer.com for more information.

This Geeklist is for the games that were played at our latest Games Day.

Several games of X-Wing were played, even a few 4-player games (2 players per side, 100 each) and one 5-player game (2 Imperial players, 100 pts each, 3 Rebel players, 75 pts each). This game has become a GASP favorite, for it's quick & fun game play and cool minis.

One game of Angels 20 was played, as part of a campaign-style event titled "Over Macho Grande" (see Airplane 2 for the reference). Each player picks a nationality and builds a 200pt airforce. We then round-robin style battle, and the first player to reach 260 VPs wins. Battles can be lopsided in # of planes each players brings, so the decision has to be made to fight or flee. We track losses, and pilots gain expereince.

This game pitted the Flying Tigers against a Japanese force. The Japs outnumbers the Flying Tigers 5-2, but the Tigers still came out on top, downing 4 Japanese planes.

One 2-player game was played, and game time was approx 2hr, 26 min. This is a new record, as most of these games are 6+ hour extravaganzas with 4+ players.

We played one of the new scenarios where it was nothing but killing zombies ... and who doesn't like that. Although I thought we were toast early on when we drew an Abomination card and all we had for weapons were some machetes, crowbars, pistols and shotguns. Thankfully Dave was able to get the necessary items to make moltov's (2 even) and short work was made of that nasty thing.

Overall the scenario was pretty easy but fun.

Look for the 3D board I used at GASP Con making an appearance early next year.

Played 3 player. Still a game I think is best with 2, and that's unusual as i'm not a fan of 2 player games.

We played this with a TON of important rules wrong, all benefiting the open information side of a secret movement game. After I got home and looked up the rules online I was astonished at how many things were wrong. I was the ninja and I still escaped. ninja

I think this was maybe my first game as the snakes, they play kind of like the mammals just with a more useful ability, but not one you can take huge advantage of. One of the two new players caught on to this game very fast and if he hadn't spent half a dozen actions trying to fight me he would have won the game. This is one of my favourites, anytime I can get this played I'm happy.

Played a 5p game of Evo, it was enjoyable, but we missed (i'll claim this fault as I was teaching) the secondary initiative condition and a few unlucky rolls knocked the game out of whack a bit. A fun game I thought though that played quickly and was fairly aggressive.

Played a 3p game of this with only the base set components. It was pretty fun actually, having a teammate you had to plan for. I picked this game up recently and after playing this I'm glad I did, it's a really cool game.

Played 2 games. Found out if you play the one corp (the one with the free ice put everything else in the archives agenda) to protect your archives.

Both games the runner won.

First time playing this. Never tried the board game, which I get the feeling is more fulfilling but a lot longer and more complex.
