I'm trying to get in touch with the game shop about scheduling an event, but while I wait for a reply, I think we have the following roster of people:

Burbs
Puddnhead - Can't do the 30th
Rootboy42
V1olentray - Burbs only, will be at Durty Nellie's on July 23

City
NCRubert
Coshade - available on Friday the 29th after 7:30
Ophidimancer
Biblofilter - Only in Chicago from the 26-30

Okay, so Dice Dojo got back to me and the good news is they don't charge anything, they have over a dozen tables, they're open til midnight, they don't need confirmed RSVP's.

The bad news is that Friday night is pretty packed, so if we're looking at the 29-30 the 30th will be better.

So if we decide to do this on the 30th, I have a place that can house us, but it's in the city. V1olentray, street parking is not that bad by Dice Dojo on Saturdays, I was just there, you could get there via public trans, but it would involve riding Metra and then switching to CTA.

If we want to do it in the burbs, I don't know of a place with the space that is as convenient.

Otherwise one of us could host, but I know I don't have the space to host a significant amount of people.

If people are willing to come out to the burbs on Friday (I can take the day off work), I will guarantee a meeting place.

It only take 2 to play Mage Wars :)

In my experience its pretty hard to get a "larger" group of people together. I only play about 5-10 live games a month when im back home with work, family, friends and everything its just tough to get live games in.

Puddinghead: Your place friday?

Ophidmancer: Dice Dojo saturday?

V10lentray: Really would like to go the 23. Sound like something worth the trip! To late/expensive to change everything. Hopefully someone will go? and hopefully you and i will find the time and place for 1+ game(s)

Coshade: Puddingheads place friday?  Ill guess well meet at Gen-Con, but i like to meet you on your home ground.

What about Harry Poppins, Intangible and every other mage wars players in the Chicago area?

Okay, I'm going to pull the trigger on the Mage Wars meetup on Saturday, July 30 at 7pm. There's great Vietnamese and Thai places nearby if people want to grab dinner beforehand. I'll also post it to Meetup.com and maybe more people will come.

Sound good?

Biblo if you're in the city we should meetup at nights. I generally work Mon-Fri until around 7 PM. Saturday at 7 works for me I could also do earlier!

What is everyone else's timeline that day? Dice Dojo is very friendly, so I don't see a problem either changing the time or just showing up a bit early. They've got tons of other cool games to play as well.
