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.

This meetup meets every other Saturday unless there is a cancellation.

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 an 80% complete list of games we have played:

7 Wonders, Agricola, Airlines Europe, Age of Empires III, Battlestar Galactica, Bonanza, Bootleggers, Brass, Carcassonne, Carson City, Caylus, Citadels, Cyclades, Domaine, Dominion, 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.

    It's on! The latest I would ever cancel would be in the AM the morning of a meetup. The games above are a good example of what to expect, but we never plan specific games in advance. The options change with the number of people in attendance and depend on games that others happen to bring.

    Any idea of what's being played this evening? I have an obligation until 3:00pm but would love to come out as soon as it's over!

    So, my exam in is the city until about 5pm... so I'll probably end up there around 6ish.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
