Dtoid Chicago March: The Convention Month


Dtoid Chicago is gaining steam slowly. As the winter weather begins to part and more of us emerge from our winter shelters that we built on our couches, made of blankets and littered with half-eaten Pringles, we're looking at a spring/summer season of NARPing that should solidify our kindly community group as one of the big boys. Attendance has ranged from handfuls to only a single attendee, but everyone that has shown up has been an awesomely entertaining individual. Now if we could only get them all in one place at the same time.

We have another GAMENARP blowout planned at Ignite Network like last month, of course. And if you missed it these last two months, you're missing out. We had a blast playing Rock Band on a massive projector, busting out MvC3 to my continued embarrassment, and even relived the old days and dove into some Diablo II!

Ignite Network
Where: Ignite Network
When: Monday, March 21th 8:00 PM - 2:00 AM
Cost: $15 (With cheaper packages for less hours, too!)

For the uninitiated, Ignite Network is a computer gaming LAN center, complete with a full suite of high-powered desktops, consoles on big screens, and Rock Band gaming studios! These sort of gaming centers are a dying breed, so let's not squander the opportunity! And to top off the perks, every Sunday through Thursday night, Ignite offers an unlimited gaming special!

For $15, you can play for six total hours, an amazing rate, from 8 PM to 2 AM. This gives you access to ALL THEIR EQUIPMENT. The place is a superb resource to gamers, returning us to a world of social gaming, like you once did in your rich friend's den as a child or in a basement somewhere as less-of-a-child.

Where: McCormick Place
When: March 18th

If you're a Chicagoan and you missed C2E2 last year, shame on you. This is Chicago's first ever city-specific convention. There are many others like it, but this one is ours. It had an inaugural run last year to great success. And this year proves to be not just a continuation, but a HUGE leap forward. The guests are bigger, the shows more interesting, and they have some amazing events to pay attention to.

Tickets are on sale currently. I've set the event for Friday, because that is the only day I can make it down there. But if you're going, GO ALL WEEKEND. It's worth it and, do yourself one better and send me a message on Twitter or post on the Facebook page to get other organized all on your own. You can do it!

A meetup prior to the event is being planned, so keep track of us on Twitter and Facebook to find out where and when to meet your gaming brethren!
