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.

We're bringing back Euchre Sundays but doing it a little different this time.
Unlike the normal euchre game where the first team to score 10 points wins, each game will end after two complete rounds(8 hands) of dealing. Sometimes you will score more than 10, sometimes less. Each person has a score card and writes their total points from that table.
Once the games for that round are complete, the two winners from each table will get up and move to the next table in numerical order and the losers will stay at their table. One of the losers will have to rotate one seat over so that one winner and one loser are on the same team this game. No two partners should play back to back games together.
We will have 11 tables for up to 44 players. Players will be registered on a first-come first-served basis. Registration begins at noon.

The dress code is easy but the mask could be a challenge so get started early! This party - inspired by Truman Capote's legendary Black and White Dance - kicks off at 7 pm. Take in some live music with pianist William Marshall Bennett while devouring one of our Black & White dinner specials; you know this kitchen has something tasty up its sleeve.
Specialty light and dark beer releases all night, an exclusive 750 ml Brett Wild Ale (with grapefruit and peppercorn), and a 750 ml bottle sale on all barrel-aged brews
We'll have a wandering photographer throughout the evening and a photo booth set up in the beer garden patio.
The mask competition will be fierce with two ultimate awards on offer – one for the most beautiful mask on the black & white theme and one for the most beautiful overall mask. Judging will take place on the dance floor beginning at 10 pm. Winners will be announced by 10:30.
Halcyon Sound will be spinning tunes starting at 9 pm while our favorite black and white movies play on the big screen and we dance away the minutes to 2017!
