Where Exactly is "The Level Up"?

"The Level Up - Home Screen", where events such as Ambuscade! is held, is the upstairs space of Guardian Games.  You must walk through the store and go up the stairs located at the back of the bar area.

This space is roomy and considerably quieter than the bar or the general area downstairs.

Ambuscade! is now FREE to attend!

After giving it some thought, there will be no "registration fee" of $5 to participate at Ambuscade!, either as a game host or a player. 

The only "hard" expense is the $50 rental fee for use of with Guardian Games' upstairs space – I will gladly take donations to cover this out-of-pocket expense at the event.  See you on the 3rd!
