Upcoming Chicago-Area Games

Postby JimTheGrey » 25 Nov 2011, 16:55

Hey, PlayDippers. We've got a bunch of upcoming games scheduled for the Chicago area. Come on out if you can.

* Dec. 4 (a Sunday) at 10 a.m at my place in Chicago's Little Italy neighborhood. Plenty of street parking and easy access from 55, 94 and 290.
* Dec. 7 (a Wednesday) at 6:30 p.m. until no later than 11 at the Red Lion in Chicago's Lincoln Square neighborhood. We'll use 10-minute negotiation phases to keep the game moving.
* Dec. 17 (a Saturday) at 11 a.m. in Downers Grove. Host Dan Burgess has four hand-craft beers on tap in his basement bar, and he'll use RealPolitik to track the moves so that he can display live maps in three networked conference rooms. Over the top? Perhaps. But also cool.
* Dec. 22 (a Thursday) at 6:30 p.m. until no later than 11 at Emmett's Alehouse in Downers Grove. We'll use 10-minute negotiation phases to keep the game moving.
* Jan. 14 (a Saturday) at 11 a.m. in Chicago's Logan Square neighborhood. Lots of street parking; easy access from 94.

If you'd like to play in any of these games, send me a PM or reply here.

And just as a follow up, Doug Kell (Offkellter) joined us for a bar game last week and had a good time. It was fun to meet a fellow PlayDiplomacy player.

I thought that the Red Lion closed a while back...

We had two boards at the Red Lion last night. It was a lot of fun. Results are here: http://windycityweasels.org/game-report ... orra-torra.

Next up, we have games in the western suburb of Downers Grove on Dec. 17, beginning at 11 a.m., and Dec. 22, beginning at 6:30 p.m. until no later than 11. Our next game in the city is scheduled for Jan. 14 in Logan Square at 11 a.m.

We'll likely schedule another bar game in January.

Hope you can join us!
