GAMA takes part in Family Friday Night, each month at Columbus' COSI museum.
It's the one night of the month that the museum is open late for members. We
run five tables of games, for about four hours, as part of the general
entertainment of the evening.

We've had a lot of success there, running all sorts of games (including
EcoFluxx). Getting them to carry the games in their stores is going slowly,
but we've had a couple of successes there as well.

Before each session, we'll also print out a list of stores in the area. That
way, if the people we're playing with want to buy a game and the COSI store
doesn't carry it, we can still give them the list and send them to their
local game store.
