Comments are now closed because the give away is over! Thanks!

*This is a sponsored post, but all thoughts and opinions are my own
*The blog's been heavy for a bit, so I'm trying to shift into something more fun!

For the last 2 years my family and I have gone to the Chicago Toy and Game Fair (ChiTAG). I've been lucky enough to win passes from other bloggers for the last two years - and lucky is right. {side note: you can read about our first year visit here}

ChiTAG is awesome! We love to go. When the kids found out we are going again this year, they can not wait. I'm often asked "When is the toy thing again?" I mean we really do love it - well, obviously because we keep going back! Last year we even purchased a few games and I got an awesome dot-to-dot book. We play games, build with blocks, hang out and just have fun.

This year, ChiTAG looks like it's going to be awesome again.

The weekend's events include:
- Giant-sized games such as: Bananagrams, Perplexus, Doggie Doo, Word on the Street, Pajaggle, and more
- Settlers of Catan North American Catan Championship
- Meet the Moshi Monsters
- Autographs from renowned toy and game inventors
- Free contests and game tournaments
- Speed Stacks sport stacking demonstrations and tournaments

Bonus for Saturday:
Stars Wars Lunch (12 Noon – 1PM): Tickets will sell out, but are available for purchase now at
Official Illinois State Yo-Yo Contest (10AM-4PM)
Top Trumps Guinness Book of World Records Attempt (3PM)

For you my dear readers, I have some tickets to give away. I'll do a random drawing, just leave a comment below, and I will e-mail the winner a pass to the fair. I'll be doing another give-away next week too!
