I don't know about you, but there's nothing I'd rather do on a Saturday night than play board games! Guests are encouraged to bring their own games or choose from my collection.

My house is in the Southwest Burbs near Oak Lawn, Burbank, Evergreen Park, and the south side of Chicago. There is plenty of free street parking until 2:00 am.

Here is a running list of games we have played:

7 Wonders, Agricola, Airlines Europe, Age of Empires III, Bootleggers, Brass, Carcassonne, Carson City, Caylus, Cyclades, Domaine, Egizia, Glen More, Hacienda, Hansa Teutonica, In the Shadow of the Emperor, In the Year of the Dragon, Kingdom Builder, Kingsburg, Le Havre, The Manhattan Project, Navegador, Notre Dame, Power Grid, The Princes of Florence, Puerto Rico, Ra, Railroad Tycoon, Reef Encounter, Samurai, Steam, Stone Age, Survive!, Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar, Zooloretto

------------------------------------------

And now for the FINE PRINT. Don't worry, you won't need a lawyer.

Please RSVP as soon as you know you will be coming. There is a cap on the RSVPs, as there is limited space. Also, please cancel your RSVP if your plans change and you can't make it. This will potentially free up a spot for someone else who is able to come.

On the morning of the meetup, if there is only 1 RSVP (not counting mine), I will cancel the meetup. If there are 2 or more RSVPs, I will keep it open.
