HalloweeM 42: WeeM, The Universe, and Everything

October 26 – 29, 2017

Preregistration is now closed. Come to WeeM and, if you haven't preregistered, please register at the door. If you preregistered but your payment was not received by October 12th, you will have to register at the door and no discounts for which you may have qualified will be honored.

Tournaments

We will have a wide array of tournaments just as we have every year! You can see the tournament schedule online in the posted Programs At A Glance (PAAG). Get details for some by clicking 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 Open Gaming. The following list of tournaments shows new ones for this year as well as some popular ones from the last couple of years that are being repeated:

Games

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! 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


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 2017. 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 12th – 14th). 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.

Online registration is not yet open but get all details now. You may register by mail if you wish or at HalloweeM.
