Its BACSIM time so come join Grant and the BACSIM crew at St. Marks in Tonawanda. People generally start rolling in around noon and the gaming lasts until the last people leave - generally late in the evening. Bringing food and (non-alcoholic) drink is fine and usually at some point pizza or subs are ordered so bring cash if you want to partake. Refrigerators and a kitchen are available if you are feeling culinarily inclined.  There is no structure to the game playing so just bring whatever you might want to play from your collection and see if you can find another player. As Grant put it: "The most popular game at BACSIM is the 'What Should We Play Now?' game." Its a great place to get those longer games to the table. And don't be afraid, its not all wargames and 18xx, there are plenty of Euro games that hit the table. I've played many of the same games at BACSIM that I've played at our Wednesday meetups. Come on out and play!

    Being from Rochester, I was just wondering, if this your normal monthly big board game day?

      BACSIM is always (barring holiday) the first Saturday of every month. It's all day open gaming for whoever shows up, and for however long it runs (usually 10 to 11 pm). We've been getting in the 30-35 people range, and just about anything you can think of gets played.

    Technically BACSIM is its own group, we just cross post their info here because a lot of the meetup members go to BACSIM. That being said, yes it is exactly that - a monthly day-long boardgame gathering. It generally starts around 11am and goes till late in the evening. Attendance is usually in the mid 30's I believe. I know a number of folks from Rochester come, so stop on out and spend a day playing games with the BACSIM and Meetup crews!
