Got your message. I know Games Plus in Mount Prospect, been there many times. This Saturday my mom is visiting us from Iowa and I am just back from spending a week at Monstercon so I owe my family some time this weekend!
How about the next boardgame Saturday - July 4 (?), maybe August 1 would be better?
If you are interested in GBOH I would be happy to help get you started. I never got into the "simple" GBOH so I'm not much up-to-speed on it. I've been playing GBOH "classic" since 1990 so I'm very comfortable teaching it.
