    We have taken all 6 children to the CHITAG
    for the last three years.
    We had a blast!
    Last year we went on two days and on Sunday they nearly had to kick us out.
    We still play the games that we won and purchased.
    I can’t wait to see what they have this year.

    We attended CHITAG last year and had quit a bit of fun. My family hung out a lot at the Rio Grande Games booth, trying out games. We were also especially impressed by the “Peiceless Puzzle” (one peice jigsaw puzzle made from foam).
