BGF 2014 Survey


It's time for our 3rd annual post-Buckeye Game Fest survey! We would like to hear from all our newsletter subscribers whether you attended BGF or not. This should take about 20 minutes to complete for those of you that attended, and around 2-3 minutes if you did not. Either way, your feedback is important to us in continuing to develop BGF! Responses are anonymous and will be aggregated for a report to the Executive Board and Convention Director. The survey will remain open until at least Nov. 1.

New Additions for Library


Special thanks to Days of Wonder for the new copies of several versions of Ticket to Ride, Small World, Mystery of the Abbey, etc. This is part of our on-going effort to "refresh" the library with newer copies of favorite games. If you notice games in the library that are in need of updating or refresh, please let a board member know.

Also, thanks to Stonemaier Games for their donation of a new copy of the second printing of Viticulture.

Five Tribes was also purchased for the library using proceeds from the consignment store at Buckeye Game Fest.

The proposed charter and amendment were both ratified by the membership at the Oct. 11 meeting. The new charter will take effect immediately.

Members interested in holding an office should contact the Board at

Volunteers Needed Saturday Morning (9/20)


The carpet's installed, the walls are painted... now it's time to set up tables, chairs, and cabinets so we can get back to gaming! We need volunteers at MOSSL at 10am Saturday morning to get everything back in place. Some of the cabinets are not on wheels and we'd rather not risk damaging the brand-new carpet, so we'd like some people who are comfortable with lifting heavy loads to show up. For everyone else, there will be plenty of smaller tables and chairs to move.

Pete Stein, president, has offered donuts to all who show up to help. See you Saturday morning!

BYOG Night at Shadowbox Sept. 24


Our third Bring Your Own Game Night will be held at Shadowbox Live's Backstage Bistro in the Brewery District on Wednesday, Sept. 24.
