The address for the church is located at the bottom of the post.

Game Days run from 10am till 11pm, 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. We will be holding off taking any new yearly payments, but those that did pay will be honored.

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.
• Our Multi-Player Magic League runs each Game Day, starting around 11am. It’s a league that runs Jan-Oct. There is a second league starting at 4:30PM with modified rules and decks, please read the forum post for more information.
• Several RPG campaigns are also 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 X-Wing, Lord of the Rings, Firestorm Armada, Dystopian Wars, Axis and Allies: War at Sea & Angels 20, BattleTech, AT-43, Infinity, and 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!

Got in 1 game of D&D Dice Masters. I played a dragon build vs. a Unicorn pumped good adventurer build. When you're fighting 6/6 halflings (from the unicorn and experience), it's tough to win, which I did not

I like this version the best of all the Dice Masters games, for tweaks like experience and gear.

1 4-player game of Ticket to Quit, I mean Quilt Show Fun game, some very similar mechanics to Ticket to Ride and other games, but you don't always have to reinvent the wheel to have fun.

I played in 1 4-player game, but I think there were 3 other games played before me. We played on normal difficulty and it was a tough go. The final round we had at least 4 ways to lose, and everything had to go right (we had to kill all 4 UFO in Europe, all 3 UFOs in Asia, at least 1 UFO in orbit, and complete the final mission). It came down to the last die roll, needing at least 2 successes, which we got. It was a fun win.

1 6-player game that ended the evening for most of us. We started off with a few easy ones, like the Patagonian Mara. Then it got hard (at least for us) with ones with 2-3 locations like the green tree python (which one person got) and the Fire Salamader (which everyone got wrong). Fun game where you learn a thing or two.

This is Blood Bowl: Team manager for baseball.
That is not a bad thing.
I played a total of 17 games in our little season, making it to the world series but got swept.
It was on my radar before but now I might get this at origins.

Played a 5 player game of this.
Nothing noteworthy about this particular game.
This game is confusing to newbies but after that huge barrier to entry this game is a lot of fun.

I had this one until the last couple turns. Curt stole a couple of my points and got two points for having the most clay, and then won by five. Still 50 points for second place pretty good. Lots of fun and well played by Da Bard for a second place tie.
