Video Teleconference Event
The December Monthly Gathering scheduled for December 5th will be a video conference event.
Our Chicago Area Monthly Gatherings are open to the public. So anyone interested in finding out more about Mensa is welcome to attend. The December Monthly Gathering will be held via Discord ; it will not be open to the public. Anyone who has used our CAM server can simply open the Discord app. Those who haven’t can find an Invitation Link on our Contacts page. The gatherings are held each month, except for November.
Mensans, if you don’t have Discord already, here are the Discord setup instructions. We recommend you sign up at least 30 minutes before the event; it’s free. Also, check out the CAM Discord FAQ. If you’d like to play games with your fellow Mensans, follow the setup instructions for Board Game Arena a few days before the MG.

Before the MG: Mensans, here are the setup instructions for Discord and for Board Game Arena . The CAM Discord Invitation Link, needed only by new Discord members, is available on our website.

Visit our FAQ webpage to get an idea of what our customized version of Discord offers, including a list of the online game websites which require advance registration. For example, if you’re interested in playing online games using Board Game Arena , the initial setup is a simple process; please sign up and add the CAM game hosts a day or two before the Monthly Gathering. After the setup, allow time to practice to familiarize yourself with Board Game Arena .
During the MG: At 7 PM you can open the Discord app (new Discord members will need to use our Invitation Link to join the event) and start socializing in any of the voice channels listed under Hospitality. At 7:30 PM you have the option of hearing announcements and then listening to this month’s presentation in the MG Speaker channel listed under Events. After the presentation, people can choose to move themselves into groups to any of the voice channels listed under Hospitality or Games. Anyone more interested in playing games (see our FAQ regarding games to get an idea of what’s possible and which games require advance registration) may want to start in the find-a-game channel to see the list or join the voice channel corresponding to the game they’re interested in playing. The corresponding text channel includes helpful information.
