Pandemic Party at CABS!
Play games and fight Ebola by coming out to CABS on Saturday April 11th. We'll be teaching and playing Pandemic, Pandemic: the Cure, and Pandemic: Contagion starting at Noon. This is a free event, but we will be taking donations to benefit Doctors without Borders in their fight against Ebola in Africa. So far, over $50,000 has been raised at Pandemic Parties across the globe, and we're hoping to add even more to that total. Even more details at:

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.
