October 26 – 29, 2017


We will have a wide array of tournaments just as we have every year! Tournaments are offered —in a separate room from Open Gaming. The tournament Amazing Race: WeeM Style will be repeated this year; it is based upon the popular reality show. The Keep Talking and Nobody Explodes Tournament is new this year. The following list of tournaments shows new ones for this year as well as some that may be repeated from last year:


The game room will be available around the clock, with Chicago Area Mensa’s collection of (at last count) over 280 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!


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.”
  • The Epicurean Experience - This will be a contest on Saturday evening for the younger crowd.
  • 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
