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 a semi-complete list of games we have played:

7 Wonders, Agricola, Airlines Europe, Age of Empires III, Battlestar Galactica, Bonanza, Bootleggers, Brass, Buccaneer, Carcassonne, Carson City, Caverna: The Cave Farmers, 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, Lords of Waterdeep, The Manhattan Project, Navegador, Notre Dame, Power Grid, The Princes of Florence, Puerto Rico, Ra, Railroad Tycoon, Reef Encounter, Samurai, Steam, Stone Age, Survive!, Terra Mystica, Tzolk'in: The Mayan Calendar, Zooloretto

Some recommendations and requests:

Please RSVP as soon as you know you will be coming. There is a cap on the RSVPs, as there is limited space.

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.

If you expect to be late, please comment with your expected arrival time. This will help us decide what games to put on the table. It will also help you avoid waiting once you arrive.

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.

      Most of the standard fast food options are close by. Barraco's is good for Italian and Sushi Thaime is good for sushi. Chi Tung in Evergreen Park is good for Chinese/Thai.

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.
