Tournaments

We will have a wide array of tournaments just as we have every year! and get more information in the Program Book. Get details for some by clicking/tapping on the provided links, and, for the rest, when required, the signup sheets are near registration and the info is usually posted in the room. Tournaments are offered in separate room(s) from the Open Gaming room. Last year, the tournament Amazing Race: WeeM Style was back by popular demand; it is based upon the popular reality show. The Legacies, Scythe, and Codenames Tournaments were also new. You can expect some new ones for this upcoming HalloweeM as well some past favorites. The following list of tournaments shows the ones that had been scheduled for WeeM 43:

Games

The game room will be available around the clock, with Chicago Area Mensa’s collection of (at last count) over 380 games. We’re sometimes asked what games we have, by people who carry games to RGs and don’t want to bring anything that will already be on hand. This year, we’ve got you covered! Over on Board Game Geek, you can find the list of our entire collection (minus a couple of oldies for which the Geek has no entry). Check it out! And, if we’re missing a game that is one of your favorites, contact our Game Warden../images/email-regular.s.gif to tell us what you’d like to see added to our collection.

Contests

There are also contests at WeeM, many of which have been featured in years past. Although it hasn’t been decided which contest will be offered, here’s a list of some that were offered in the recently.

  • Build your own Scarecrow - Bring some old clothes from home; get creative and build a traditional or unusual scarecrow! There will also be some stuff supplied but you may have some better garb to give your scarecrow’s “personality.”
  • Costume Contest - Friday night’s costume parade is legendary. There are winners in multiple categories: best pun, worst pun, best traditional and best based on the WeeM theme -- so this year, go wild.
  • Volunteer Raffle - Although not a contest, the more hours you volunteer, the more chances you get to win prizes — and, although being kind, generous and thoughtful is its own reward, who doesn’t need a few extra bucks! smiley
