I wanted to make everyone aware that the CUDO (Champaign Urbana Design Organization) is putting on a board game expo for games designed locally. Please see more at: http://cudoplays.com/
NOTE: this is not an event organized by our meetup group
Here is the CUDO's summary of the event:
Join us for the Grand Exhibition at the Landmark Hotel on February 16th from noon to 8pm. Gamers, Designers and Makers from the Champaign Urbana area have created 13 unique and innovative board games that they would like to share with the community. We will be providing food and refreshments throughout the day and it is an exciting opportunity to look at the creative design being done in the CU area! The Landmark Hotel is a beautiful space and there will be a gaming room, where the action will take place, as well as the library for those who prefer a more intimate gaming environment. Their bar will also be open during the day. This is a family-friendly event, and we would like to invite anybody with an interest in board gaming or design to pop in and experience the wonderful local creations and have a lot of fun. We have a diverse range of games, everything from monster hunting to space faring. With a delightful mix of eclectic genres, there is something for everybody.
