The AGOG Details:

Join us for a relaxing weekend of games and hospitality. Bigger than a house party, smaller than an RG; just hundreds of Chicago Area Mensa's games, plenty of tables, and well over a hundred friendly, albeit competitive, players. At AGOG, you can play all your favorite board and card games*, including Euro/German games as well as party games and classics, or bring your own to share with friends. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are provided throughout the weekend.

Save the Dates!
