I was recently transferred to Illinois for work. I currently live in west Aurora and am wondering if there are any gaming groups close by?

Someone had posted about a gaming group yesterday that's having a meet-up this weekend in Elgin, IL which is a suburb of Chicago. I cant believe that I remembered this. I hope this helps!

There's an active Meetup group in Downers Grove. Also there is a relatively new gaming store there that has open gaming on Fridays from 7-midnight.

Fair Game

I run a monhtly Memoir '44 game there if you are intnerested.

March Memoir '44 at Fair Game

That may be a bit closer for you than Elgin.

Good Luck!

Thanks.

I have since started my own group that meets in Aurora every other Friday. I have been to Fairgame a couple of times. The Elgin group is a lot of fun but is about a 45 minute drive. I appreciate the feedback.

I keep trying to get out to Fair Game for the game nights on Saturdays but the timing during the summer is tough for me. Fantastic store though.

I'm in Batavia, where does your group meet?

The group is open play. We meet starting tomorrow at 100 hankes rd inside a church building. It is on the coner of hankes and bliss road in sugar grove. 7pm-1pm.

Generally, when i get together with friends we have been playing the longer more in depth games that no one else will play. also anything in the top two hundred.

I guess I try to introduce soemthing new as often as possible.

Anyone is welcome to our game night. More specifics are located here http://www.meetup.com/chicagogames/events/23718601/

I have just accepted a new position in Aurora, not far from where the meetup is. It is always a challenge for me to try to get to Fair Game too (for Summer open gaming at least). I'll keep you folks on my radar once I get settled in!

Just checking to see if anyone on this forum wants to run any events at Conception. Here is the quick critical data.

Sept 23-25
College of Dupage
Glen Ellyn IL (pretty close to Aurora)

www.concentricconventioncompany.com

On the web site is a judge submission form. We are currently looking for events of all kinds.

Oh, and yes, this is the con with the hugh board game library!

Joe,

I might be interested in helping. Could you GM me with what my options might be?
