Game has come to the Northside. Chicagoland Games will be opening our new storefront at 1207 West Bryn Mawr Ave. Chicago, IL 60660 on Thursday, 11/06/08. We are a brand new game retailer with a dedicated playspace. We will be featuring strategy games, family games, role-playing games and collectibles in a major way. We may be a new store however, some of you may remember our staff from the late Gamers Paradise at the Century Mall.
Our staff is dedicated to building a game playing community not simply a retail space. Come by and check us out.

Wow, it went from famine to feast in Chicago. I wish all of this had happened 3 years ago when I still lived there and had to be content with the game stores in WaterTower and Navy Pier (which means to say, not content at all).

Good luck!!!!

I used to live around the corner from Cat-n-Mouse games, over 10 years ago.

I also lived up at Western and Foster for a few years.

Good news for Homewood citizens in 30 years. There'll be a new game store, right after I move away.

Hey Lexx and crew, Congrats on the new store. It was your store at Century Mall that started me on Wizkids and other games 2 years ago. Glad we'll have a FLGS inside of Chicago, especially this winter when I am without a car to get out to the suburbs. See you in November!

I used to hit Chicago game stores every Christmas, until I moved to California. Now everyone wants to visit here, because it's 74 degree year 'round!

Good luck on your business.

I'll say! I think I read threads here about 3 new gamestores in Chicago opening since this summer!

The gamestore in the Water Tower Place closed down recently. I do not know if the gamestore at Navy Pier is still in business.

Per their national website (Calendar Club run) they still are (and have added new stores too): http://www.calendarclub.com/locations/default.asp?from=SP

I updated the list in the guild thread: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/thread/177319

These are pretty cool. Half the store is gaming tables and they play late.

I suggest a concession stand like the theaters. It costs the movie theater $0.04 for a 32 oz. Coke. They sell it for $3.50. Great margains. Best of luck in your new business!!!!
