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.

For March 22nd we are running a Fantasy Flight Games Store Championship tournament for Netrunner, so we decided to open the remaining gaming space for general use.

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.

2014 Dates
• January 11th
• February 8th (FFG Store Championship events for both Star Wars LCG and AGoT LCG)
• March 8th (FFG Store Championship event for X-Wing)
• March 22nd (extra Games Day in March, all Knights and yearly payees attend for free. FFG Store Championship event for Netrunner LCG)
• April 12th
• May 10th
• June 14th
• July 12th
• August 9th
• September 13th
• October 11th
• November (No Games Day due to GASPcon)
• December 13th

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.

Played a 4 player game, 100 pts each but only using planes from the minor allies. Lots of planes on the board. We ended early, with the minor Allies having a slight advantage.

A bit of math involved in this game, but Its a good game, easy mechanics to learn, not many actions to concern about, but lots of decisions.

Finished the evening with two plays of this quick trick-taking card game. First game Evil won in the first round, second game it won in the second round. It's a fun little filler game.

I thought this was a really interesting design, and I look forward to playing it again.

The first, and probably the last, time that I picked up on how to play a new game faster than Curt. Unfortunately it didn't last, and I spent the last two turns trying to do seventeen different strategies all at once -- getting nowhere with any of them, and scoring a grand total of two points over those turns! By the end of one of them I'd concluded that literally every action I took that turn was a mistake.

Meanwhile, Curt got the hang of it and had a runaway last turn. Oh well.

One oddity of the game will be the way the final scoring plays out with different numbers of players. Three seemed to work well, but had the "last place" player scoring points for no effort. Four probably will work well. With five I'm not sure. I'm a bit surprised to find out it doesn't go up to 7 players, one per terrain type... although the board would have been mightily crowded!

A game about art collecting and thievery. Couldn't figure out how I should be playing beyond trying to guess what everyone else would be doing; interesting but I don't think I need to play it again.

Played with all the expansions (evolutions and costumes). Good because it supports six players; bad because (with all the expansions) anyone eliminated early in the game is going to be sitting for a while.

Essentially an abstract game about building structures in a way that gives you the most points. Nice dice.
