What we're about

Working to redefine this group.

Up until recently it was described as follows
.
.
“Meet other Wargamers who are interested in historical gaming. We have a small wargaming group located in North Riverside (1 mile North of Brookfield Zoo) with a focus on historical miniatures.

Our miniatures include WWII (skirmish, armor, air, and naval), Civil War (land and naval), American Revolution, Napoleonic, Crimean War, Franco Prussian War, French Foreign Legion, WWI (air and naval), Ancients, Medieval, and Renaissance. We are also both interested and open to other periods. We believe that the gaming environment should be relaxed and friendly. The focus of gaming is enjoyment of the game and winning is of secondary importance. Our games are currently held at 10 AM on the 1st Saturday and 7Pm on the 3rd Friday of each month. We play in a finished basement with 2 large comfortable gaming rooms. The Chicago Regional Alliance of gamers meets one Saturday each month for a wide variety of boardgames. Our members range in age from 17 to over 70. All ages and experience levels are welcome.”

Hope we can keep a few great people and encourage new members as well. Please let us know what types of games you like to play.

Palatine Board Game Night

Needs a location

Meet new and old friends and play light to medium simulation games. We teach and have a library. Games will be based on attendees. We try to set up games before play so weigh in with your opinions or questions. For example lately we've been playing Mars:Ares Expedition,1775, El Grande, and filler games like High Society, Port Royal and Machi Koro.
