Ben and I are once again extending an invite to everyone for a board game night at our place on Saturday, July 27th starting at 4pm. For a full list of the games we have available please see below. We encourage everyone who attends to bring games from your own collection along if you have any. As always a few snacks will be provided. If anyone would like to bring additional snacks and drinks we always appreciate it! The RSVP limit is 16, but if the weather looks promising we can open up our patio space to squeeze a few more people in.

We're located at 2424 Emerald Court Apt 106 in Woodridge. We’re just west of I-355 off Janes Ave between 75th Street and Boughton. Please note Janes Ave is a 25mph street and the police strictly enforce it. Make sure to get a guest parking pass from us if you park in the apartment parking lot.

For people with pet allergies, please be aware that we have three cats and three chinchillas. If you have allergies please bring your antihistamine of choice if you plan to attend. This is a smoke-free apartment.

    Huge thank you to everyone that donated to help cover Meetup expenses! Thanks to your outstanding generosity we collected enough to cover another six month payment of Meetup organizer dues. Katrina couldn't make it tonight, but she sends her thanks. :)

    Really don't want to do this but my sleep schedule is royally screwed so I have no idea when I'll finally wake up (alarms fail to do the trick a lot). So I'm better off changing my RSVP and giving the next person a shot. I'll see you again sometime sorry!

    Does anyone have a cooler they can please please bring over tomorrow? We may or may not have a working refrigerator by then. :( At the very least we can get some ice and chill drinks if someone has a cooler. Please let me know. Thank you!

    sorry, overbooked myself this weekend. I need physical exercise badly and will do sports this weekend, along with much needed errands.

  • Larry

    Finally have free time from work again and hoping I can attend since now in the waitlist. It's been a while.

  • Tiara L.

    So excited to see you guys!! We'll be bringing some food, though I'm still deciding what to make. If there's anything in particular you need, please let us know and we're happy to contribute.

    July 22, 2013

    • Sarah

      Anything you'd like to bring is fine! Ben and I still trying to decide between proving a salad or roasted vegetable bruschetta. Something healthier than standard snack food.

      July 22, 2013

    • Tiara L.

      We'll bring 2 trays of chilaquiles casserole — one chicken, one vegetarian. A little hearty food to go along with the snackers. They'll just need to be either warmed up in the oven, or portions microwaved (though it's yummy cold, too).

    Would anyone be interested in helping me playtest a board game I've made and hope to publish? It's very snarky and comes with plenty of backstabbing.

    July 26, 2013

  • Sarah

    Since we only had 1 person left on the waiting list I bumped everyone in. See you all tomorrow! Don't forget to bring your favorite games. :)

    The weather looks promising for this weekend so I raised the RSVP cap to 18. We can squeeze a few more in with access to our patio table.

    Oops.. Meant to cancel earlier since I move on Friday.

  • Brian C.

    My family is now coming up to visit for the day, and I'm probably going get my car looked at as well, so chances are pretty slim that I'll actually make this. I'll let someone else take my spot.

    July 23, 2013

  • Katrina R.

    Sadly, Frank and I will not be able to go to this one after all. We'll definitely join you guys at the next one!

    I went to take off the +1 and it put me back on the wait list... That.. sucks...

    July 22, 2013

    • Sarah

      Fixed! You're back in. The automatic wait list option has some flaws. If you ever see an error like this again just let me know and it can be corrected.

    Any snacks in particular? And does booze count as a snack?

    • Sarah

      Booze does count! Bring anything you'd like.
