Strategy Games in the Southwest Burbs

Brandon's House

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. This is a great meetup for longer games that are harder to squeeze in to only a few hours. We play for up to 10 hours! 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 We always order pizza a couple of hours or so after the meetup starts. The suggested contribution for this is $10 for those with average appetites. (If you only want a couple of pieces, feel free to lower your donation according to your judgment.) Some recommendations and requests: Please RSVP as soon as you know you will be coming. There is a cap on the RSVPs because there is limited space. Please cancel your RSVP if your plans change and you can't make it. This will 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.

@ my house: Logan Square Board Game Group

Fullerton-Kedzie Medical Center

For some of these summer game nights, I'm happy to host at my house. I live near the corner of Kedzie and Fullerton. I'll privately send my address to those who RSVP by the day before. Since it's my place, it'll be a smaller amount of allotted slots. BYOGame, Food, and Beverage. Rain location or temp below 55 degrees is Dill Pickle. Because this is my residence, I'm only sharing my address with those I've met/have attended previous game nights.
