I know this is not a true gamer's game convention but I will be checking it out mainly because Rio Grande will be there. I hop to learn and get into some of their games.

Who else is going? When?

I've never attended this event, but I plan to this year - not sure what day. From what I've read I don't envision a lot of open gaming, but if there is, then I'll be there for multiple days. It helps that I live about 8 miles from the convention site.

I'll be going on some day. Not sure when or for how long.

EDIT: I'll be there on Sunday at some time since it's my only day available.

Rio Grande will be represented there by Pastimes I believe but Jay himself won't be there (unless he changed his mind since GenCon).

I'm definitely going. It gives me an excuse to go to Frankly Yours for a hot dog.

According to the organizer of the event, there will be 32 tables set aside for open gaming at this event. I've read the previous threads about prior year Chi-Tag events and this seems to be a "we're trying to make this better" improvement from previous years.

If you do go to ChiTAG (or plan to go), then make sure you go by the free open gaming area (supposed to be about 100 feet away from the concession area in a quiet spot) and support it - play a game, have fun and smile a little.

Having open tables for free gaming seems like a good thing to me.

Holy Crap! This is in Schaumburg! Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel...That is like 20 minutes from me. I'm in Wheaton. Who will be there on Saturday? Anyone bringing games or is there a rental thing like Origins?

What about making an official time for BGG'ers to meet up at the open gaming area? What about Saturday from 10am-6pm? Do I need to start a new thread for people to sign up to bring games?

I hope to be there as well. I went last year and it was nothing special, but I still want to support it in the hopes that it grows bigger. I wish Mayfair would show up (they're local), but I guess there's some bad blood between ChiTAG and Mayfair. I don't know the details, though.

I've never been before, so I'll certainly be giving it a try. And just to make it even more fun, I'm a teacher, so there's ZERO admission for me!

The open gaming area sounds like a lot of fun.

If you want more information, the website is:
http://www.chitag.com/

There's a large list of exhibitors and pictures of previous events.

Games I could bring:

Memoir 44 (plus Pacific/Russian/Terrain expansions)
Ticket to Ride: Europe
War of the Ring
Thurn and Taxis
Goa
Settlers and Seafarers
Carcassonne: Hunters and Gatherers

Hope to see some of you there! cool

I plan on attending as long as the WARDEN doesn't revoke my yard-time. I hope to bring a friend along and introduce him to something other than WarHammer. (Com'on man! Do you want to paint or play?)

Hey Eric, as far as the games in your list I'd like to try Reef Encounter and MM44.

I'll bring; Tigris & Euphrates, Fearsome Floors, and Tikal
Look at my profile and let me know if you want to try anything else I own.

I'll certainly be bringing all of my Memoir system (base game and expansions) - as it's my favorite! And somebody asked for Goa. I'd be glad to get some more playing with this game.
