What is Games Day?
Game Days are a chance for our members to get together once a month to play all of our favorite games, and meet other gaming enthusiasts, whether your interests are board games, role-playing games, card games, or miniatures. Attendees are encouraged to bring games they would like to play, or pick one from the shared library of games. It is also customary to bring drinks or snacks to share with the other gamers, but it is certainly not required (A refrigerator is available. Alcohol is not prohibited, but it is NOT encouraged either).
GASP Games Day
Game Days are from 10 AM until 10 PM on the second Saturday of each month (usually). Bring your favorite game or just show up and join the action. New gamers are always welcome. Games Day is free for first time attendees, and only $5 to play all day for returning participants.
Please note that our Games Day location will be changing in January 2017. We will be moving from Springdale to Baldwin. See below for addresses and locations.

How Much Does Games Day Cost?
First time attendees are free!!!
Pay as you go, each Game Day after the first:
Single, pay as you go – $5
Family, pay as you go – $12 (Immediate family only, no upper limit)
Knight, pay as you go – $5 (month you pay for knighthood is free)
Pay for the year (January deadline):
Single, per year – $50 (one month free)
Family, per year – $120 (one month free, must list entire family)
Knight, per year – $65 (includes Knighthood fee; get 2 free months)
Please note: For yearly payments, we will only accept them through January’s Game Day (so December 2016 or January 2017). After January, all members not on a year program will pay as you go each month. If you can’t make either December’s or January’s Game Day, you can always pay via PayPal. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, with your yearly payment preference, for an invoice.
The listed payments are the only ones offered, and can’t be combined with any other offer, so no yearly Knight families for instance.
For yearly payments, we will accept cash or credit cards at the December and January Game Days. Also, yearly payees will receive a special badge to wear each Game Day, instead of a wrist band. Each category will have their own unique badge (singles will differ from families will differ from Knights). This badge will be yours to take home each month, and will be your responsibility to bring to each Game Day. Lost badges will be replaced for a $2 fee.
Family is your immediate family, e.g. husband/wife/domestic partner, your/his/her kids.
Speaking of kids, all children 10 and under, that are capable of playing the types of games we typically play (say 6 years old), are free to attend Games Day with a paying adult. The Adult must stay at Games Day with the child, but not necessarily play the same games. Please use your discretion when bringing your children to Games Day. We want to encourage families to play games together, but this is not a 100% child-proof event. Adult language/humor may be used by some attendees, most likely not at the same game your child is playing, but within ear-shot. Please be respective of other gamers, and ask if it’s OK for your child to play a particular game with them – don’t expect the answer to always be yes.
