Games with Cards in Lincoln Square

Hey everyone, it's been awhile but it's time for another meetup for some card games! This time we're going to be meeting at the Bad Dog Tavern in Lincoln Square. I'm hoping we can get enough people that we can have a few different games going, but we'll be prepared either way.

Are you a fan of games like Dominion, Ascension, and other deck-building games? Perhaps you prefer the customization of games like Android: Netrunner, Magic: The Gathering, or the Lord of the Rings Card Game? Or maybe you prefer games with a standard (or similar) deck of cards like Euchre, Tichu, Hearts or others? Then this is the meetup for you! We'll be playing any and all of these and whatever other games people want to play (based on whatever people want to bring). We will be combining this meetup with a Magic: The Gathering meetup, so anyone interested in learning that game will also have the opportunity, and vice versa.

We will be meeting at the Bad Dog Tavern in Lincoln Square near the Western brown line stop. Hope to see you there!

    There's a chance I may not make it now, but will do my best to be there. Meetup needs that 'maybe' response back.

    Hey I can't make it this time because I have a bridge card game meet up the last Tuesday of every month. Do you know when the next one will be?

      Hopefully this storm dies down a bit and you can make it!

    There shouldn't be any issue with people arriving at 8 or so. I'm hoping we can have a few games going and we may start with a shorter game of some kind anyway while people arrive. I'll also probably be there until at least 10:30-11 (or later) so there should be time for multiple games.

    Speaking of games, my plan is to bring some combination of Dominion, Thunderstone Advance, Seasons, Citadels, Resistance (probably Avalon), Cards Against Humanity and some (basically) 2 player FFG LCGs (Android Netrunner, Star Wars, Game of Thrones), as well as perhaps a couple Magic: The Gathering decks. That's a lot of stuff, so we'll see what fits in my bag. =)

    what's the parking like?

      There's a (pay) lot right next door and a fair amount of (also pay) street parking, though sometimes you can often find free parking on the side streets (Wilson and Sunnyside are sometimes options).

    I'd love to play some Thunderstone and/or Ascension, if others are up for it. Always up for some Dominion as well.

      Just realized I was thinking of another meetup at the Red Lion if you read my previous comment. I'll can bring the Thunderstone base set.

      We had it at Red Lion the first time in October and we had a lot of people for it and it was quite crowded as well. It wasn't so bad, but I'm just trying out other places. I've been to a few at Bad Dog and they have been good to us, and they have very large tables in the back that are good for multiplayer games.

    Just fixed the location.. for some reason the wrong address was listed for Bad Dog originally. It is correct now.

    Not gonna be able to make it. Really wish I could but got caught up at work. Looking forward to the next time around. Are there many GoTLCG players in the chicago area? Looking for new opponents.

      I'm actually not really sure... I personally have been wanting to at least try my Core set at least once to see if it's worth digging a bit deeper into (obviously tons of expansions available for it now, so might be sort of difficult). Dice Dojo had briefly put up an "FFG LCG" day once a month, but I'm not sure it's still around. Cat n Mouse have a Netrunner league every other week, but not sure about AGoT.

      Ya I've got quite a few of the sets already. I know a small group of friends who play but really need to expand the base of who Im playing against. Thanks for the info, and it's a very fun game, sadly it seems to not be that popular.
