"A Gathering of Gamers"

Games, games, and more games!

Only 42 days until AGOG. Join your fellow Mensans on January 25th – 27th for fun and games.

The rates go up after Saturday so register today to qualify for the best rate.

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 almost an entire year until WeeM 2019. Instead, we're saying you can do it again in January!!! Every winter, Chicago puts on AGOG — A Gathering of Gamers (this year, January 25th – 27th). 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.

By clicking on any of the menu items on the left, you can access all the information that is of particular interest to Chicago Area Mensa members. Most of the information is publicly viewable, but those that contain personal information, such as phone numbers and addresses, require your Mensa e‑mail address and password.

In the public section, you’ll find information about Chicago Area Mensa officers past and present, and Service Awards.

In the password-protected section, Chicago Area Mensa Members may get information about any of the following:

  • Newsletter: ChiMe: Current and past PDF versions of ChiMe, our monthly newsletter, are available to view and download. And since the digital version is available on our website, if you’re interested in going "green," there are instructions on how to go paperless. If you’d like to submit an article or material to be published in ChiMe, please view the Submission Guidelines. We’d love to hear from you.
  • Logging Receipt of ChiMe: If you haven't gone paperless, our circulations manager is interested in seeing how long it takes before members receive their issue of ChiMe. Members can enter the date they got it especially if it’s early or late.
  • Activity/Event Coördinators/Hosts: To protect our members' privacy, contact information for events is only available on our password-protected Contact Info page. The list of events and information about the Monthly Gathering are available when you follow this link. When you participate, you'll reap the benefits of your membership.
  • CAM E-Mail Alias: Getting a vanity e‑mail address which redirects your e‑mail to your own inbox.
  • E-Mail Lists: These can also be found in this password-protected area to reduce spam. Log in and find out how easy it is to subscribe to any of our many lists — lists for Special Interest Groups (SIGs) and to communication and interact electronically with your fellow Chicago Mensans.

All positions are held by volunteers who are current Chicago Area Mensans. If you are interested in getting more involved, you can learn more about the various positions and see which ones are vacant by clicking on "Officers" in the publicly viewable section of the menu on the left or checking the latest edition of ChiMe given there are positions not listed on this website. Even if a position that interests is not currently open, let the Loc Sec know you’re interested so s/he can contact you should it become vacant in the future.
  • Approved Business Minutes from past Board of Directors/Steering Committee meetings.
  • Business Forms: Get the form that enables you to get reimbursed for expenses you incurred due to your involvement in CAM as an Officer or due to a request for which you volunteered.
