Tabletop Tuesday at Nellies, 6-11pm, 6 July 2021

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


Bring your own games or use our 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. Recently, people played Awkward Guests, Onitama, We’re Doomed, Undaunted: Normandy, Moonrakers, The Isle of Cats, ArchRavels, and more!

Some games we played recently


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.


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.

Where’s Your Space Base?


[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.


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!
