I definitely wanna go! (wanted to comment on your "can't serve both masters" note TOTALLY AGREE! I'm not sure ACEN's for me anymore, which is a darned shame)

Thanks. Neither alone is really a bad thing. Both together is begging for disaster.
Decide on your masters, people, for you cannot serve both. Either be an anime con or be a 3-day frat party. (I'm Done with ACen.)

now that I've thought about it, I'm really glad this con is closer to some of us suburbanites which makes it (for some) a little more accessible than driving out into the city a super long way.

Pretty much the Chicago Anime Mahjong Players club is hosting another mahjong event here.

If you know the game...
If you don't know the game and want to learn...

Swing right on by.

As the poster says: there is both freeplay and tournament play. Likewise, we'll be having teaching tables too.

===

DISCLAIMER: The girls in the poster will not be in attendance.
