U-Con is Michigan's largest gaming convention (https://www.ucon-gaming.org/) and is held locally in the fall (October/November).
However, the rest of the year the Games Library lies unused and games not played are sad gamed indeed. Every second Sunday (usually - check the schedule), we select a small handful of games to bring to ABCM and invite anyone and everyone to come play.
Bring your friends, bring your games, bring your friend's games and have some fun.
