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 here

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.

Good economic game. Speculation, resource management. Its one of those games that have a lot of nuances, but once you know them its smooth sailing.

The beginnings of a campaign, we Did Brigadoon and The poison pill. A great couple of adventures where we just EEKED out a victory, I mean if I didn't kill the villain on that stupid poison pill adventure we wouldn't of won. But this will hopefully prove to be a lot of fun with some fun people to play.

I got to play this one, and quite enjoyed it. This one seems pretty under rated on the geek. The only thing against it is the length being around 2.5 hours to play.

Got to play the baltimore map. The crazy thing about it is the pit lane that's halfway through the track rather than at the S/F line.

I didn't like the mechanics for this one despite it being a wallace game. I really wanted to like it too.

Our first Armored Clash game. This is a new fast-moving rule-set meant to be played with massive armies formed into brigades.

Jim played his Prussians and I brought out the Russian Coalition.

Great game ... just to bad we did not get a chance to finish.

I got an intro to the MERCS minis game. It was interesting and I'm looking forward to playing again. Hopefully, I'll get some better results.

Snipers are not so great for making heroic last stands . . .

We ended up wrapping the ongoing campaign. Many tough decisions had to be made. Basically, I ended up screwing over the humans, taking all of the sorcery from the world. Cities will collapse. The landscape of the gods have changed, but that is another story for another campaign.

The ongoing Shattered Gates of Slaughter Guarde campaign continues. Delving into the depths of the most recent shard, we discover more gnolls, an enormous blind mountain troll, and a hill giant. Using amulets found in this area and the previous, we've been able to navigate a few of the gates. The game wrapped when we came face to face with a dragon!

The surviving members of the previous adventure are newly minted adventurers. They traveled to the village of Hirot, only to learn that it has been under attack by a mythical wolf. They have been leaving sacrifices to the wolf to stave off attacks on the city, but the party is determined to eliminate the wolf and save the city. They traveled to an ancient tomb, looking for a historical weapon that may be able to slay the wolf!

Interesting game, but went on too long with five players. Would try again with fewer.

Four player game with me, Amy, John and mark, where John won by two, and mark and I tied for second. Still a great game, especially with the draft option of get ten cards of each type and keep seven.
