Hey guys,

I'm moving to Chicago on September 1st. I'll be living in the Lincoln Park/Old Town area, and I'm looking to join/start a gaming group. I'll be hitting up Dice Dojo on Wednesday nights to get a lay of the land. But, I also wanted to see if there were people in the city who might want to game aside from that gathering.

My schedule will likely become very weekends-only in November, as work gears up. So it'd be nice to have a group I could drop in on, if my unpredictable schedule allows! Until November, though, I'm really quite free.

Not sure if I'd be able to make it, but best luck on the move and hope you find a group!

Welcome to Chicago!

Dice Dojo is obviously a great place to start. I'd also recommend checking out a few meetup.com groups:

http://www.meetup.com/chicagogames/ -- hosts a large number of events all around the chicagoland area

http://www.meetup.com/ChicagoEuroBoardgames/ -- this group runs an "every-other-week" event at Mystic Celt near the Southport brown line stop (should be pretty easy to get to from Old Town/LP)

I second all of this. Welcome to Chicago, and best of luck with your search. Unfortunately, I'm in a suburban group on Monday nights. I can't add another date to the week, sadly.

Thanks for the help and the welcomes, everyone! Really looking forward to getting deeply into the hobby. Never got a good group in college, and my collection kept stacking up, so I'm ready to get some serious plays in.

I'll definitely head to Dice Dojo and check out the meetups!
