This will also be my farewell and thank you to all of my friends in the Force as I will be departing for my new home in Austin, Texas shortly thereafter. So, I hope everyone who's been a part of Chicago Force, new and old can make it out.

    What: Fun, games, food, prizes, movies, keg.
    Parking: Street (but relatively easy to find)
    CTA: 5 minute walk from the 35th & Archer stop on the Orange Line
    Bring: Please bring a prepared food item to share with the rest. BTW, there's a Jewel right next to the El Stop on Archer if you want to wait till the last minute.

    My fiance and I will be in Chicago that weekend. If you don't mind StLFF company we'd love to join you. We will bring money and/or food to contribute as well. This couldn't have had better planning for us :)

    I really wish that I could be there, but I will be on a plane somewhere over the Atlantic.

    It's great that you'll be coming, Jedi Dajuan. I met you briefly when I was running the trivia board game at Celebration at Celebration III. Sorry I didn't get a chance to talk with you later during the con.

    Dave, I notice that the Austin group has Miniatures nights. I think it's time you introduced them to your special rules.

    No, my house rules are, you take a shot for every 20 points you lose (you start with 100 in most games), so the loser/s end up taking 5 shots. Games last about an hour, so it's a good pace...though if you lose a Vader or a Yoda...you might as well line a few up.

    Lilli and I have started playing 200-pt. games, so I don't know if I'd want to use those rules in those situations.

    Bosh is a nurse, it's shots of gamma globulin, so it isn't nearly as fun as you think. But you will be suprising resitant to Hep A.
