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
• April 26th
• 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.

This was different. A bit hard to comprehend at first but after it sinks in it was neat.

First play for me, one 3-player game. I enjoyed the game, it's a fun, fast card game and good as a filler between bigger games. Nice components with good illustrations.

Played two games with my son, it's a fun game and I enjoyed it as much as he did. The special cards add a nice strategic element to the game, but for the most part it's luck.

Played one large game, which I prefer over smaller games as they are a bit more chaotic and fast.

Played a second game where I taught two others how to play. I was eliminated rather quickly as I got left in a spot at the mercy of another player. Another good, fast filler game.

Played one 2-player game with my son, he was able to grasp the mechanics no issue and did surprisingly well. With 2 players it's tough to eliminate enough space to prevent all your pieces from being played, so it was a good introduction for him.

One 3-player game, my son included. He actually requested the game, as he played before but it was my first play. I enjoyed the game, and it's surprising more deep than I initially thought, but easy to grasp. I'd play it again.

2013/2014 version, I've been looking at this updated set and decided to buy it from our vendor, Chuck. We played one 5-player learning game (no altitude or fuel rules), and I see now how important both those are, without adding too much complexity. We used to play a lot of Dawn Patrol, and I see this as a lighter version of those rules.

I like the secret movement plotting and simultaneous reveal aspect of the game, but I can see where it would be difficult to shoot at people with such limited line of fire.

Looking forward to more plays and maybe getting out Dawn Patrol again.

One 6-player game, I believe I came in second. It's been awhile since I played this, and it took a bit for me to remember all the nuances. I do enjoy the game and it's a fast play as well.

The poor humans didn't stand a chance. The second Cylon came in after drawing 3 treachery cards and we soon had every human in the brig. It was the very first time I ever drew the Cylon card and it was great fun.

Played a couple games of this (using the cards from Who's The Ass?), and I can see more games in the future. Pretty easy to pick up, but not obvious WRT what to do.

It's still a great game, but man, I didn't have fun this time. I screwed up a rule (forgot that compensation for negotiation came out of my hand), drew lousy cards, couldn't figure out how to make my alien powers work well, and quit the game at the end when I ran out of time and three of the five players had an imminent win. (Apologies for acting like a whiny baby.) Harrumph.

Still figuring out what I should be doing in this game, so it's likely that I'll be hauling it along for at least a few more months.

It's a card game about making pizza. How could it be bad? (Okay, lots of ways. But it's not.)
