Sorry for the late notice.

The January Chicagoland game will be at Games Plus in Mt. Prospect on January 23rd, and will be an Alpha Strike game, since we haven't done one for a while.

Games Plus
101 W. Prospect Ave.
Mt. Prospect, IL 60056
Phone: 847-577-9656
http://games-plus.com/

Game will start at approximately 11 AM.

This game will be an Alpha Strike scenario, utilizing the Commander's Edition ruleset, and all necessary minis and cards will be provided.

COVID protocols are in effect, so masks will need to be worn at all times.  I am waiting to hear back if the new Cook County regulations that went into effect on January 3rd will require you to show your COVID vaccination card.  I don't think so but I am checking with GP to confirm.

Please contact me or reply here with any questions!!!

*** UPDATE  ***


I spoke with Games Plus and they will NOT be checking COVID vaccination cards for entry to the gaming room.

Looking forward to it!

Quick question: will this be an all-Mech thing, or should I make sure I brush up on the vehicle, infantry, AS rules, too?

There will be some vehicles.

Planning to be there if I don't need to work. I would prefer to work Saturday, but it may be Sunday.
To the utmost!

Despite the snowfall last night I am still planning on running the game today. 

If you can't make it because of the snow that we had overnight, I completely understand.

For anyone who can, I look forward to seeing you there!

I should be able to make it. Hopefully they plowed someplace to park!
