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!

I want to thank all of our attendees for taking time out of their weekends to come play with us. I want to thank all of our volunteer GMs for all of their efforts in preparing games for us. And of course I want to thank Games Plus for being our host venue once again.
Extra-special thanks to everyone who played games with me: Willow, Tim, Tim, Jason, Matt, Natalie, and John. And double-extra thanks for Shari for bringing all of those frosted cupcakes! I think I ate like four of them!
