A Gathering of Gamers (AGOG)

The Location:

Westin North Shore Hotel
601 N. Milwaukee Ave.
Wheeling, IL 60090

The Dates:

Start: Friday, January 25th at 7 pm
End: Saturday, January 27th at 3 pm

The Details:

Join us for a relaxing weekend of games and hospitality. Bigger than a house party, smaller than an RG; just hundreds of Chicago Area Mensa's games, plenty of tables, and well over a hundred friendly, albeit competitive, players. At AGOG, you can play all your favorite board and card games*, including Euro/German games as well as party games and classics, or bring your own to share with friends. Food and non-alcoholic beverages are provided throughout the weekend.

If you do find a lower rate for Westin hotel online via travel websites or memberships which you may have such as AAA, please let the AGOG team know. When events result in more rooms being booked, it helps keep AGOG prices down by allowing us to negotiate space at a better rate, which benefits all the attendees as well.

The Hotel Rates:

We don't have any information yet about the room rates at the Westin North Shore Hotel. So please visit this page in a few months to check for updates about hotel registration.
