HalloweeM

October 29 – November 1, 2020

Check this site in the spring of 2020 for information about our 45th WeeM!

Tournaments

We will have a wide array of tournaments just as we have every year! Tournaments are offered in separate room(s) from the Open Gaming room. This year, once again, the tournament Amazing Race: WeeM Style is back by popular demand — based upon the popular reality show. And so are WeeM Pub Trivia and the Social Deduction Games! The Name That Movie, and Drunkards & Flagons are new this year. A small prize will be offered at some of the tournaments. The following list of tournaments shows the ones that may be scheduled for WeeM 44 which include all the new ones for this year as well as some from the last year that may repeated:

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!

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


AGOG

A Gathering of Gamers

Do you like games? Do you spend the entire WeeM weekend in the games room? Would you like to do again? No, we’re not asking you to wait an entire year until WeeM 2019. Instead, we’re saying you can do it again in January!! Every winter, Chicago puts on AGOG — or, A Gathering of Gamers (this year, the 24th – 26th). It’s a weekend-long gathering of just games. All the games we have at WeeM and more, because folks like you can bring your own to share. We provide food, non-alcoholic beverages and all the games you want for a reasonable price. AGOG starts on Friday evening and ends Sunday afternoon.

Register by Sunday, December 15th for the discounted rate of $55 ($20 less for those under 18 on Friday, January 24th and free for anyone under 8). Details are posted on our website. E‑mail the AGOG chairs  Casey C., Jon & Karen G., and Oriel M.
