JAFAX December Reunion: Return of the BattleTech Pods!

December 12, 2015 @ 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST

They’re the fully-immersive, video game experience where you climb inside a working cockpit and pilot, coordinate, and fire weaponry with your team in live combat situations, against other realtime pilots.

JAFAX is proud to once again take our FIFTH annual pilgrimage to the Mechwarrior Tesla II Pods at Big Kidz Games for our official December reunion event.

NEW THIS YEAR: BKG has also added an Artemis: Spaceship Bridge Simulator!!
You may have played one of these at Grand Rapids Comic Con or Youmacon. Now, between Battletech missions, you can pilot your own starship with your trusted crew at the helm. How sweet is that?

Reunions are open to anyone who either has or has never attended JAFAX before.

Pricing update, 12-5-15: Battletech and Artemis game prices are $2 per round, and may be less if we have enough people show at the meetup.
Day passes for the BattleTech pods and Artemis are $25 for umlimited play!

We may also have a white elephant gift exchange as well, we’ll decide based on input from the group.

We’ll meet up at noon on Saturday, December 12 at the Rivertown Mall food court for lunch and holiday shopping and then carpool over to the pods around 2:00 or so.

After pods, we may have dinner, call in a pizza, what have you. We will be in the Plainfield area after playing with the pods. Suggestions for dinner plans welcome!
