Updated for 2014

GASP meets once per month for our Game Days (twice in March this year).
It is the 2nd Saturday of the month (barring any scheduling conflict), and
the location is the Holy Family Manor, near West View and Bellevue in the
North Hills. It is about 10 minutes from downtown Pittsburgh, via I279
and the Perrysville exit. This venue offers spacious rental facilities at
a reasonable price.

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

GASP is not affiliated with any religious organization. Like our friend
Amy Farrah Fowler, we don92t object to the concept of a deity, but we92re
baffled by the notion of one that takes attendance.

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. See our price structure for

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.
It92s 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
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.
Don92t 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
kitchen, so items that need refrigerated are OK. Most people bring some
soda, chips, cookies, veggie tray, etc. This helps everyone have a good
without worrying about snacks or drinks. We do place a group pizza order
around 4PM for those interested. The cost is $5 and this gets you 4
of pizza (various toppings). Our members really like this, as it frees
them from having to disrupt their games just to get some dinner. There
also plenty of other food options in the nearby West View shopping centers.

See you at Games Day!
