I wanted to let everyone who reads this blog know that we have lost a fantastic member of the gaming community here in Chicago.
Our friend Brandon Kutka died this morning from swelling of the brain which was brought on by previously undetected Leukemia.
Brandon, along with Tom Wright opened up Black Sun Games at a time when the city of Chicago was seriously lacking game-shops. A great gaming community sprouted over time thanks to Brandon’s efforts to make Black Sun Games an awesome spot.
I met Brandon several years ago, shortly after Black Sun Games opened. He was very enthusiastic about the store and getting involved with local gamers. In the time that I got to know him we often discussed painting, collecting, gaming, and occasionally he was able to get games in with folks when the store duties weren’t keeping him busy. Our time as friends was far too short.
Rest in peace, Brandon.
