The Chicago Region Alliance of Gamers (C.R.A.G.) is a group of like-minded men and women who simply love to play games. We have been a staple at the Elmwood Park Library on the 2nd Saturday of every month for almost 10 years.

crag castle 400wModern board gaming has evolved well beyond Sorry and Monopoly into intricately themed Resource Management games, Deck-building games, Strategy games, Epic space games, and fantasy-based tile and miniature games.  Some examples of the games we play would include Axis & Allies, Settlers of Catan, Titan, Memoir ‘44, plus many more…

Our goal is to grow the local gaming community and to bring people back to the table, get them away from their computers to interact and have fun playing games. We are part of a larger community of gaming clubs throughout the Chicago area who come together to promote community involvement and take part in fundraising events. 

Whether you are new to gaming and want to learn more, or you already love to play and are looking to try new games and get more play out of your own collection, then join us and get ready to play.
