New York Slice
A light, quick game that’s both cheesy and meaty.

The Featured Game of the Week begs the questions – Is it ever ok to fold a slice of pizza in half? That’s right, New York Slice! In this game, each player slices pizzas into portions, giving their opponents first choice, while they take the leftovers. There are a dozen kinds of pizza to work with, from veggie to hawaiian to meat lover’s, and each player decides if they want to eat or keep some of the slices, building the best collection of pizzas possible! – please give it a try sometime this week.


LOTS OF OTHER GREAT GAMES! At Tabletop Tuesday, 50-100 people meet each week to play all sorts of different games. Recent titles played at the event include City of Horror, Terraforming Mars, Viticulture, Codenames, Funkoverse Harry Potter, Periodic, Horrified and many more! Bring your own game or use one of the 400+ games in our library.

DESIGNERS WELCOME! Tabletop Tuesday has a healthy community of designers who bring prototypes to try. If you’re going to join them, you should plan to play other peoples’ games, but you’re also welcome to bring yours as well.

Some of the games we played on 1 October 2019

PLAY ALL EVENING! We play from 6:00 until 12:00am. But you don’t need to be there the whole time. Many members leave early or arrive late. If you’re looking to play something specific — especially a “heavier” game that might take a little preparation, head over to our Facebook page to pre-arrange your game. Nellie’s also has a lovely patio you can use for outside play when the weather is pleasant.

FAMILIES WELCOME! While [toggle Gaming] is an adult event held at a bar, feel welcome to bring your children with you. Our library has many family friendly games, and we regularly welcome younger gamers to the table.

Come by, grab a pint, roll some dice, play some cards, collect some cubes, watch some flicks, see familiar faces, and make new friends.

If you’re a member of Chicago Game Lovers ( as well; be sure to RSVP to the meetup there as well so we can tell the members there how much fun we have!
