I will be in Chicago the first week in June, dead smack down town on Michigan st.

Are there any board gaming stores or places to get a game on while i am there?

Not much to be had downtown...

The Dice Dojo and Cat and Mouse are probably the closest to the loop. They are both up on the north side. You can easily get to either via public transit.

If you are just looking for games, there is a very active meetup group:http://www.meetup.com/chicagogames/

If you are interested in shopping, Games Plus http://www.games-plus.com/ in Mount prospect, which you can get to by train, has a much wider selection than the stores in Chicago.

As Tim said, Games Plus is probably the best store in the area!

Games Plus has a nice miniatures and older wargame selection but I didn't notice very much that you couldn't find online. They have a nice sized warhammer section near the front window. The store has a bit of a sweaty odor. Not sure if that's par for the course. I haven't been to many FLGS'.

Settlers of Catan does not improve with your house rules. The best option if you don't like the rules as written is to just select another game.

I'm not sure what you mean but I used to live in the area if that clarifies anything.
