If you're a fan of sci-fi, fantasy, comics, anime, board/card games, cosplay, movies and books relating to all these genres, etc, come join us! We schedule a variety of meetups all year for various activities, including some of the bigger conventions in Rosemont and the Lake County Conti-i-Con. We are big movie and board/card game fans as well.
We have a wide variety of age groups but I'd say the majority of folks who attend our meetups regularly are in their 20's, 30's, and 40's. But we are always looking for older members, especially since one of the organizers is in her 40's now. So if you're in your 50's, 60's, and above, come join us as well!
Guests of members are usually welcome at most of our meetups as long as you stay a member.
We also encourage member participation, if you'd like to post and host your own meetups on our calendar as well. Some of our best meetup ideas, come from our members.
Please note, that Meetup charges organizers a fee to run our groups, but most of us do not pass that cost onto our members so you usually get to join our groups for free. It's a reasonable fee, but since we are paying for our groups, we get to set the basic rules for our groups. If you do not care for the rules we set for our groups, then find another group, or start your own. Meetup allows organizers to run up to three groups under the fee they charge, which is a pretty good deal.
