Howdy, ya'll! I'm going to be in downtown Chicago for the next few days ... anyone have groups getting together Friday, Monday or Tuesday evening?

There is an avid group of historical miniature players downtown- all really nice, intelligent guys. They are welcoming and would probably be up for other non mini games as well.

If you can make it, try to get out to Games Plus in Mount Prospect. (It is their monthly boardgame playing all day Saturday, but worth it any day just for the shopping). It is right across the street from the train line which you can ride all weekend for $5: http://www.games-plus.com/games-plus/storeinfo.htm

Wade, were do these guys meet? I have been looking for fellow minature players who aren't located in the northwestern suburbs for a while.

You just missed the Fall auction last weekend. I couldn't make it, but they usually have a pretty impressive auction selection, and prices are generally below E-bay's, especially on eurogames.

I love Games Plus! as much as anybody, but I don't think I would take Metra from the Loop just to get there.

OTHO, there aren't really any decent game stores downtown. Fortunately he was asking about good groups (which I'm sure there are, I just haven't gotten around to checking any out)

I'll actually be in Chicago the next few days myself (Sunday through next Wednesday), but I discovered LONG ago, there's no real good gaming store options in the near proximity of downtown Chicago...

Well that's too bad ... maybe BSW, then.

Unless you want to drop by for a game of Battle Line or something

I used to do it all the time. What was best is I could spread out and look over my newly purchased "prizes" on the spacious (no weekend traffic) ride back -- something I couldn't do driving.
