Tabletop Tuesday at Nellie’s, 6-11pm, 22 June 2021

[toggle Gaming] presents: Tabletop Tuesday! We’re pleased to return to our regular events on Tuesday nights at Nellie’s Gastropub (formerly Durty Nellie’s). Come on in and play some games with your old friends! We’re starting, as we used to, at 6pm, and going until 11pm. Grab some food and a tasty beverage and we’ll be glad to see you.

Catching up with pals at the bar.


This week marks the return of the [toggle Gaming] library. We have over 400 games for you to use, or you can bring your own! Each week, 50-100 people meet at Nellie’s to play all sorts of different games. Last week, people played Hero Realms, Wingspan, Zombicide 2nd edition, New York Slice, Treasure Island, ArchRavels, The Lost Ruins of Arnak, Betrayal at House on the Hill, Last Aurora, Love Letter, Sleeping Gods, Campy Creatures, Marvel – Villainous and more!

Some games we played on 15 June 2021


Tabletop Tuesday events have often played host to designers of all stripes, with games at all levels of development. If you’re going to bring a prototype to test, you should also plan to play games with other people as well, trading tests for tests.

Lots of great food, drinks, friends, and fun!


We start at 6:00pm and go until 11pm. But you don’t need to be there the whole time. Arrive when you like, leave when you want. If you’re hoping to play something specific–especially something “heavier” that might take a little preparation–consider heading over to our Facebook page to pre-arrange your game. Nellie’s has a lovely patio you can use for outside play when the weather is pleasant.


[toggle Gaming] encourages attendees to consult local, state, and federal guidelines for gathering safely. In general:

  • Fully-vaccinated individuals are welcome to attend without wearing masks.
  • Unvaccinated individuals are encouraged to wear masks.
  • All attendees must examine the current state of things and assess their own risk.

We support anyone who feels more comfortable wearing a mask, for whatever reason they choose.

Games at full swing!


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!
