Passion. Experience. Diligence.

About

Game of Arms believes that games can add value in our community by making the group happier and connecting people.  Frequently connecting random people, away from normal herds, may positively impact a community by creating more empathy.  We want to provide a hunger for more satisfying work, for a stronger sense of community and for a more engaging and meaningful life.

Playing a game is the voluntary attempt to overcome unnecessary obstacles.  Games gave them a better way to live when their value circumstances were otherwise completely unsupportive and uninhabitable. 

Games can tap into our strongest survival instincts.  We want to improve weekly and weekend interactions around the globe by maximizing the ability to bring a greater sense of enjoyment and community with these games changing the world positively.  We are located in the West Loop of Chicago, IL and want to improve the World.
