We created Chicagoland Games: Dice Dojo with the goal to create a fun environment for Chicagoland gamers to enjoy their hobby. As gamers ourselves, we are dedicated to the gaming community and can offer a vast knowledge of all things related to gaming.


We offer the best variety of games in the Chicagoland area. Boasting dozens of large game tables, our guests can enjoy the game of their choice and can also compete in one of our many tournaments. We are the city's largest source of both casual and competitive Magic the Gathering events.For the casual gamer or those new to gaming, we offer the largest library of demo games in Chicago.


Playing demo games is always free and you can enjoy playing them in-store for as long as you like. We recommend checking out our famous free  Board Game Night, held every Wednesday starting at 6:00pm as seen on Reddit, Time Out and Metromix.
