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 for 2016, as we cannot guarantee dates at our current location, we can still only book a few months at a time.

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, Bolt Action, Lord of the Rings, Firestorm Armada, Axis and Allies: Angels 20, BattleTech, 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!

I played in one game of Bolt Action, using the V2 rules that were just released. It was a 2vs2 game, I was Played the British with Chuck vs 2 US players (consider it a training mission). We played one of the new missions as well, where there are a random number of objectives placed at the beginning of the game, and whomever controls more wins. It was a good game, a lot of back and forth, until our flamethrower team lit-up a US squad, causing minimal damage but forcing a Morale test - which they failed and promptly left the board. That opened up our entire right flank and helped secure the win.

Got another game of 2.0 MERCS in, still not entirely comfortable with the rules yet. It's not that they are difficult, just a little fiddly if you haven't played in a while.

Turn-based intro scenario with 6 folks - ended in a draw.

This game needs a quieter environment than a games day - in our case some movement commands got lost.
