We are going to use Warhorn.net for player sign-up this time around.
Gameday 37 Warhorn page: https://warhorn.net/events/chicago-gameday-37
In order to sign up for Gameday 37 events, you’ll need to create a Warhorn account. Signing up with Warhorn is free. I would suggest that players and GMs set up an account prior to player registration, as there it’s possible there could be a delay in getting your account set up.
Why are we using Warhorn?
Chicago Gameday is one of the few — possibly the only — ENworld Gameday that still uses their forums for planning and registration. Given that our association with ENworld has been mostly in name for many years now, that ENworld has often been unavailable during player sign-up, and that a few people have encountered difficulty in registering with ENworld, we’ve decided that it’s time to start investigating other methods for administering our event.
The advantage to Warhorn is that registration is automated. There’s no need for me to manually monitor a forum thread and log sign-ups. Players will receive immediate confirmation of their sign-ups, and the roster will automatically track which events have seats available and which do not.
This is primarily an experiment. We’ll see how it goes this time around and then make a decision about whether to continue using Warhorn or find a different solution.
Feel free to respond to me with any questions or concerns you have.

Chicago Gameday 36 went off without a hitch this past Saturday. We drew a total of 68 attendees, including myself, which makes this the best-attended Gameday on record! The previous holder of the title was Gameday 17 back in 2007.
It means a lot to me that, more than a decade since Gameday’s inception, we can still occasionally manage to pack the Games Plus back room to the rafters.
Many, many thanks to everyone who attended, to our volunteer GMs/facilitators, and to our gracious hosts, Games Plus.
Special thanks to my fellow crew members in Monsterhearts and all of my victims in Dead of Night.
I also hope that all of our first-timers had fun and will consider coming back and gaming with us in the future. ONE OF US! ONE OF US! ONE OF US!
