Wish you could smack that griefer upside the head? Long for the days of playing against your friends that were sitting next to you or in the next room? Now you can!

The goal of the Chicago Gamers Republic will to be to live up to the ideals of fun, fair play and competition inspired by CGU's founders Dan Quest, Devin Palermo, Mark Angelo Manto. As a nation of gamers from the worlds of indie, classic and pro gaming, we are always looking for individuals that want to get together for indie and pro game launches, LAN parties, tournaments, gaming events, trivia and fan-led discussions of gaming. Fun, bragging rights, and prizes are all to be had! We encourage positivity, fair play, and competition. Griefers, cheaters, and cheezers, need not apply!

From Pong to Peggle to Call of Duty.
From professional to core to casual.
There's more to gaming than leveling up, we are united by gaming. Welcome to the Chicago Gamers Republic!  Add us @chigamersrep
