Do you remember last year when I posted about my trip to the Chicago Toy and Game Fair? I had never even heard of ChiTAG until last year, but after attending, I was blown away. Not only is this an awesome place to find new games, puzzles and toys for your family to enjoy, but it is a TON of fun to spend hours wandering through the hall. Many booths have games out for you to play, for all different age levels. The younger kids will enjoy the huge booth in the back with literally thousands of CitiBlocs for building, demolishing (I saw almost as much crashing buildings as I did creating :) and just having fun.
Sooo, I said all that to say this-You're Invited to ChiTAG! Held at Navy Pier in downtown Chicago, the event takes place on Nov. 19-20 this year. Believe me, this is an event you do NOT want to miss! This is the largest public toy and game fair in the entire U.S. It's the perfect place to go shopping for holiday gifts, because who doesn't love a new game, puzzle or RC vehicle?! In addition to shopping, you'll be able to meet inventors and creators of some of your favorite games (I was able to meet the creator behind Jacked, Blurt and many other games last year). Don't worry about the kids being bored, because there's plenty to do for the whole family. Live stage entertainment, free contests, interactive toys and games, and even costumed characters roaming the halls! At the very reasonable cost of just $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children (3 and under are free), this is well-worth your ticket price. You can also receive $2.00 off admission with the coupon in my blog sidebar.
Now the big news is that over the next 5 weeks, I will be giving away a FREE Family Pass for the Chicago Toy and Game Fair! Yes, that's right-you and your family have the chance to enjoy this event free! If you don't win this week, keep coming back because I'll be giving away a new pass each week!
