October 7th @ 7 PM: Player sign-up begins; agains, this is handled via a thread on ENWorld.

October 19th @ 9:30 AM: Gameday 36! Feel free to join us for breakfast at 8 AM, if you're up that early.

    HAPPY GAMEDAY 36 AFTERMATH DAY, everyone!

    Before I give the usual thanks, I want to make it known that we may broken a record this time around. There are roughly 57 signups on the sign-in sheet, plus at least one more walk-in of which I was aware. In addition to this, @Isawa Hochiu brought in way more players than were signed up; he's going to send me a complete list shortly. That means that, at 58+bunch attendees, Gameday 36 was very likely the largest Chicago Gameday on record. The previous record was held by Gameday 17 in July '07.

    It means a lot to me that, more than a decade since Gameday's inception, we can still occasionally manage to pack the Games Plus back room to the rafters.

    Many, many thanks to everyone who attended, to our volunteer GMs/facilitators, and to our gracious hosts, Games Plus.

    I also hope that all of our first-timers had fun and will consider coming back and gaming with us in the future. ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF US!

    Mark, sorry I'm new to this. Is anyone running D&D 3.5 Oct 19th? I'm a bit rusty to DM maybe but would if you needed someone I guess. I think I'd rather play and meet folks as this would be y first meeting if I attend. thx Paul

    September 9, 2013

    • Mark D.

      Hey Paul! No one is currently slotted to run 3.5. You are welcome to run if you want to, but there is no pressure. You are more than welcome to just come and play.
