  1. What:: GASPcon 16 Where:: Monroeville Convention Center, South Main hall When:: November 6th through 8th Player pre-registration is now open. Event sign-ups start Sept 19th. GASPcon is entering its 16th year, and we are celebrating by continuing with a 3rd day of gaming (Friday) that we started several years ago. Pre-registration price is just $35 USD for the entire weekend. GASPcon runs 24hrs a day from opening till close (6pm on Sunday). We will also continue to accept credit card payments at the convention through Square. To register for the convention and to see a preliminary event list, go to the following link. https://warhorn.net/events/gaspcon-16 Board games will be running all weekend long, and with our extensive and free board game library, you can check-out a different game every time you sit down to play. There will also be a board game demo team on-hand to teach you how to play several select games donated to the club by retailers. We are also working with several game developers and offering them free space in our dealers' room (see below) to highlight their games. There is also a mix of Role-playing games running throughout the weekend. There are both independent publisher games, as well as your favorite D&D and Star Wars RPGs. The RPGA will also be running Living FR all weekend long, with first-run events for the living campaign. Your favorite CCG's will also get some play, with several Magic events being held throughout the weekend. We had an explosion of miniature event submissions this year, so there are many other events scheduled throughout the weekend, including Frag-A-Rama, You Sunk my Battleship (AA War at Sea), Bolt Action, Sails of Glory, X-Wing, and more. GASPcon will see the return of the outstanding Classic BattleTech Poker Run on Saturday, where the object is to collect poker cards by killing your opponents, and the winner is the player with the best hand. Sunday is the featured Signature Miniatures Event, which this year will be a version of Battletech: Alpha Strike using the Robotech Tactics miniatures. 10 players will battle on and over Macross Island, as the Zentradi and UDF struggle for control of the precious Protoculture! For our Star Wars fans we have 3 Imperial Assault events and 2 X-Wing events. Both X-Wing events will have prize support, as well as at least one of the Imperial Assault events. Note – We continue to receive new event submissions and will be posting RPGA events in the coming weeks so remember to check the registration site for updates. Return of the Silent Auction The silent auction returns again for GASPcon. Whether you are a buyer or seller, you'll find plenty going on with the auction. See the following thread for full details. A tentative schedule is listed below (subject to change). http://eonsreach.com/gaspforum/index.php?topic=7422.0 Tentative Schedule Auction 1 – Fri 2PM – 6:30PM Auction 2 - Sat 8:30AM - 1:30 PM Auction 3 - Sat 2PM - 6:30 PM Auction 4 - Sun 8:30AM - 12:30 PM Payout Sunday 7:30 PM Dealers' Room New for GASPcon this year is a dedicated dealers' room. The #1 suggestion each and every year was the need to have a dealers’ room at GASPcon, and we are delivering on that request. We were able to add-on the enclosed space beside our main hall, which we will utilize for both our vendors and demo games. This gives us over 12,000 sq ft of space for this purpose. In addition to the dealer, the Pennsylvania Coin Operated Gaming Hall of Fame and Museum will be attending this year, and will have 2 games available for free play all weekend, including the classic dungeon explorer Gauntlet! If you are interested in being a vendor or have a game in development you wish to highlight, please check out the following link for our vendor packet. https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/35559649/GASPcon_Vendor_Packet_v00.pdf Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator Ever want to command a Star Ship, be a science officer or pilot the ship, well this is for you. For the entire con we will be running a Star Trek deck simulation where you and a team of people have to pilot a star ship in this interactive networked event. Hour long events will run through out the convention. See what some others are saying about these events. “Artemis isn’t an official Star Trek game, but it is the Star Trek game you’ve always dreamed of.” – PC Gamer “Overall, Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator is ridiculously good fun.” -Wired Magazine “This is such an amazingly simple idea that I can’t believe nobody has thought of it until now.” – Escapist Magazine “This is LARPing for science fiction fans, with the exception that everything you want to work actually does.

  3. GASPcon is this weekend, with open gaming all weekend long (sadly no Star Wars LCG scheduled events.) If you're in the area, stop by to game, or just say hi. Ask for Don (me). Say "Star Wars Rocks!", and get $5 off the onsite weekend admission price! Thanks,
  4. GASPcon is this weekend, with two great X-Wing events (X-Wing Hunger Games and Tournament Kit event). If you're in the area, stop by to game, or just say hi. Ask for Don (me). Say "X-Wing Rocks!", and get $5 off the onsite weekend admission price! Thanks,
  5. I wanted to post an update to GASPcon. We were notified on the 17th of October by the hotel that they would not be able to honor our original dates, as their renovation hit another delay. We have been scrambling to find an alternate venue or cancel GASPcon. We were able to secure the South Main hall in the Monroeville Convention Center. This 23,000 sq ft space is nearly 4x the size of our previous location. The dates are unchanged, and we will maintain the 24/7 operating times as well. Great news for GASPcon indeed. There are plenty of hotels very close to the convention center, and food options are abundant. We will continue to accept pre-registrations now that we have a new venue. Thanks, Don

  9. To anyone that is coming, use our Meetup group page to sign up. It's just so I can get a count of expected people so I can set up the right amount of tables. http://www.meetup.com/GASP_gamers/events/202929112/ Thanks Don
  10. Modified the scoring points per the updated tournament rules.
  11. What:: Star Wars LCG Summer 2104 Tournament Kit Where:: Holy Family Manor When:: Saturday September 13th, noon to 4pm Help your local Star Wars™: The Card Game community learn the ways of the Force with our new Summer 2014 Star Wars: The Card Game Tournament Kits! GASP (www.gaspgamer.com) will be running a free game night kit event for the Star Wars LCG game, using the Summer 2014 Tournament Kit. We are able to do this through the generosity of our resident game vendor, Chuck-a-Con game sales (http://www.chuck-a-con.net/), who has donated these kits to GASP. We're passing the savings onto the gaming community. The normal $5 charge to attend Games Day will only be collected if you decide to stay and play games the rest of Games Day, otherwise there is no cost to participate in the event (other stores charge $10 or more to play in these). Prizes for Summer 2014 Tournament Kit are listed below. After the event, feel free to stay and game the rest of the day away. This mini tournament will start promptly at noon, and should go about 4 hours, depending on attendance. What is a Tournament Kit? At the beginning of 2014, we divided our seasonal Organized Play kits into Tournament Kits and Game Night Kits. Tournament Kits are for our competitive games, such as Android: Netrunner and X-Wing. These kits now include more prize support and promotional material designed to support competitive or casual tournament play at local retailers. The kit includes a guide to supporting an eight-week tournament series, but it can also be used to host a single tournament, more casual game nights or leagues, or whatever suits your local play environment best. In addition, each Summer 2014 Star Wars: The Card Game Tournament Kit contains two deck boxes, an exclusive playmat, and 19 alternate art cards—stunning, full-bleed alternate art versions of Grand Moff Tarkin (two copies) and Rogue Three (17 copies). What’s in the Summer 2014 Star Wars: The Card Game Tournament Kit? Each Summer 2014 Star Wars: The Card Game Tournament Kit comes with everything a retailer needs to support and grow a local community: • One playmat depicting Princess Leia Organa • Two alternate art versions of Grand Moff Tarkin • Seventeen alternate art versions of Rogue Three • Two deck boxes: one Leia Organa and one General Veers • A promotional poster featuring Princess Leia Organa • One informational pamphlet on running a tournament or league About the Event Event registration will start at 11am, tournament kicks-off promptly at noon. Cost:: FREE (only pay the $5 GASP Games Day fee if you stay to play other games after the event ends) Format:: 75 minute games, Swiss-style tournament Scoring:: Win/Draw/Loss- 3/1/0 points Max Players:: 32 (# of rounds based on # of players) 8 or less 3 Rounds 9-16 4 Rounds 17-32 5 Rounds What to Bring Each player must bring one light side and one dark side deck to the event. Each deck must contain one affiliation card and a minimum of ten objective sets. There is no maximum deck size; however, you must be able to shuffle your deck with no assistance.
