This Meetup is cancelled

CANCELLED: Best. Game. Ever. - Holiday Meetup & Open Gaming!

  • to
  • This location is shown only to members

  • This event is cancelled due to illness.


    A majority of folks said they liked house meetups, so we'll set one more up for 2013. (based on our survey)

    Bring your BEST GAME EVER and share it with our group! We'll show off, debate, and most importantly PLAY the games. Afterwards, we'll have open gaming. Don't have a "Best Game Ever" to showcase? Then no problem, come out and just hang out and game with us. Not everyone needs to have a game.

    I volunteered my house again but everyone feel free to host a house meetup of your own! The parking in my neighborhood is free if you drive, and you can access my house from the Central bus (blue line to Jefferson Park, then Central bus). Let me know if you need other directions.

    Also, this is a POT LUCK style event. The event is FREE but we encourage everyone to bring a snack, beverage, etc. I will supply all paper products (plates, napkins, forks, etc.) This event is BYOB and you must be 21+ to attend (can't chance underage drinking).

    BROWN ELEPHANT GAME SWAP: We also were talking about having a game swap where you can bring a game that you don't want anymore and we swap them out with other games. Feel free to participate if you want and if you can, wrap the game to make it more fun.

    I have a lot of systems at my home, so if you think you need a "special" system, then please reach out. Between my husband and I, we probably already have what you need.  We will not provide a PS4 or Xbox One (just FYI).

    Hi everyone,
    So I got the flu because the world thinks that getting me sick during my vacation is hilarious. Because of this, I am going to have to be a buzzkill and cancel Saturday's event so no one else gets sick.

    I really apologize to everyone for this. I was really looking forward to it and I'll reschedule the event soon, unless someone else wants to take over the location. If you do, please post or email me so I can update the event.

      Hope you feel better. If I had a place of my own I'd offer it up.

      Since I'm free and was hoping to play some games. I can invite some people over to my place. I live just down the street from Amanda. I couldn't hold 22 people but maybe 10 max. What'dya think?

      Agreed with Amanda... definitely would like to focus on video games for these MUs, as I've noticed that for every video gaming MU in a given time slice, there are at least 15 board game MUs out there. Plus, it's alot easier to play board games anywhere, whereas with vid games, you also need the right equipment set up.

    By the way, since I see a lot of new folks RSVPing for my house... I do have a dog. He's a small guy, but I know people can have dog allergies. Also, I'll email my address the Friday night before the Meetup. If you have any questions, you can leave a comment or email me.

      Your dog is a terrier mix right? Do you know if it's a hypo allergenic breed? I ask because my family has a miniature schnauzer (a close cousin to terriers) but it doesn't bother my mom since its a hypo allergenic breed.

      I don't exactly know. He's from a rescue and he's a mut (what we were told). I ordered a dna kit to see if that may give us some insight. He doesn't really shed too much and no one has really shared that they felt an allergies around him.

    I have ps vita assassin's creed. Hope someone would swap some psv games with me. =) I am also done with Gravity rush (such a good game) which could be ready to be swapped.

      I normally email the address the evening before hand so I don't have my personal address posted for everyone to see. So stay tuned and I'll email it once we get closer to the event.
