Tabletop Tuesday at Nellies, 29 March 2022

[toggle Gaming] presents: Tabletop Tuesday! March is on its way out, but the games aren’t slowing down. Join us at Nellie’s Gastropub for camaraderie, games, and good sustenance. And come check out the game collection — it keeps growing! We go from 6pm to 11pm. Join us!


[toggle Gaming] encourages attendees to follow local, state, and federal guidelines for gathering safely. At present masks are optional but absolutely welcome.


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, we meet at Nellie’s to play all sorts of different games. Recently we’ve had a great time, playing games of Return to Dark Tower, Anno 1800, Chameleon, Dark Domains, Everdell, Incan Gold, Marvel Champions, and more!

What game will you play on Tuesday?

Check out these two new additions to the library: Creature Comforts, donated by Tim Slovacek and Legacies, donated by designer/publisher Jason Brooks. Thanks, fellas!


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.


Who built the best village under the EVERDELL tree?

We start at 6pm 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.


Which Dark Domains will YOU capture?

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!

[toggle Gaming] is proud to be sponsored by XYZ Game Labs.
