Bay Area Games Day is an ongoing series of daylong open gaming sessions held in the San Francisco Bay Area.
We play all sorts of strategy games: German-style boardgames such as The Settlers of Catan, Egizia, and Agricola, Avalon Hill-style multiplayer games such as Civilization and Dune, wargames, and a variety of collectible and non-collectible cardgames. There generally are a number of established game designers in attendance playtesting prototypes. I haven't yet worked out what I'm going to play this week: Here's your opportunity to game with a high profile Games Day host.
A full list of the games played at the last several years of Games Days are available as a geeklist here:

The next Games Day will be at the Los Altos Public Library this Saturday, September 17, from 10 a.m. until 11 p.m.
Gaming will be in the library's Community Room, which is just off the lobby in the southeast corner of the building. Entry is free, but a small ($1) donation to the library will be appreciated. The library is in the Civic Center complex at 13 S. San Antonio Road (east side of the road), just south of the intersection of San Antonio and Edith. The library is located within walking distance of downtown Los Altos and within a short drive of El Camino.
We have a mailing list (managed as a Yahoo! group) where you can get additional information.
Hope to see you all there. Mark your calendars for upcoming Games Days on November 5 and December 3.
Life is Short; Play Games!

Also, I am sorry if I have already notified you of this calendar. My memory is not what it used to be.
