I think weve settled at aroud noon-ish. I will be there around 1. I've never been before so I dont know trading etiquette either. Since Ive never been I dont really know what anyone looks like but you can all spot me by the gang of hooligans that that I roll with.


Well, I'm not too worried about people picking me out of a crowd...I'm 6'5", so hard to miss. I'll look at my collection and pick out stuff I'm willing to part with. And if anyone's got a boxed system (handhelds, too), I'd be down to trade for or buy them.

Pretty sure I'll be there as close to open as possible, since I'll have to cut out by 5 at the latest. Looking forward to it.

So OF COURSE, none of Saturday's trains stop at Congress Park, which is like a block away from the Ghost. Guess I need a new plan to get out there.

Couldn't find the thread without Chicago in the title

What about bing, tsel, theheef, sherydia, mrosnwo, pezmanmike, Metal Militia, dfg, etc?


I really want to go, as I love the Ghost. I also want to update my retro collection so trading/selling would be a plus. Unfortunately October is brutal for me. In addition to my two regular jobs, I'm working at a haunted house and I need to be there by 4. And the wife works saturday mornings so I really don't see myself bringing my 5-year old to there for only 3 hours.

Hopefully next time I'll join y'alls.

I'll be there a little bit later since I'll be taking public transportation and it's going to take 1.5 hours to get there.

I haven't called yet, I put in a bid on a condo today and this is the first time I've been on CAG in 2 days. 1.5 hours and I am still not caught up with the threads!

I'll try to call tonight and see if Doc is in. If not, I will try again tomorrow. UPDATE: I called, but Doc isn't in. I left my name and number with the guy. If I don't hear from Doc in the afternoon, I will shoot him an email.

IDK how much I will have for trade other than the GC for blackout and Infamous 2 for weaponx (if he still wants it) I may bring some penny guides if anyone has some junk guides to trade.

I may be able to pick people up at train stations if they are on the way.

Sorry everyone, I've been crazy busy this past week.

Well, fine then...I'll find the other tall guy, figure he's a CAG, and go from there.

For those familiar with BNSF...would Brookfield be the best stop to take to get there, or a different one? Congress Park is right there, but none of the weekend trains stop there.

Oh OK. I might have to take public transportation too. Not sure.

I know someone mentioned it before but we should all definitely do that Bing challenge at the Microsoft store for the $25 gift card if it's near the arcade.

I'm not sure. I'd have to look it up. I'm like 20 minutes away by car but not sure which buses go out there from the city.

I just tried to get Doc again and I guess justI missed him. I sent him an email asking about the group rate. When you guys get there I would mention CAG either way and maybe the $12 rate will be valid. Doc is working tomorrow, but I don't know when he comes in.

I'll be rolling 6 deep tomorrow, be forewarned my friends are bro-gamers and I'm the only nerd in the posse. We're looking forward to a proper Killer Instinct rematch to a tourney we had a couple weeks ago using emulation on my Xbox.

I'm a little rusty, but I was one of the best KI players in IL (circa 1996). I'll most likely be playing it when you get there. 8-) I only play it at GG though, so I play KI like once every year or two. :lol: I forgot most of the moves, but that game is usually where I spend my time.

So what's the consensus on the time?

I'll be bringing a good amount of stuff to trade or sell so I hope you guys bring some stuff too. I need to get rid of some things.

ryosnk, what's your exact route to the arcade? I punched into Google Transit planner and the options they gave are pretty long and annoying.
