Tabletop Tuesday at Nellie’s, 26 April

[toggle Gaming] presents: Tabletop Tuesday! The end of April approaches like a freight train … full of GAMES! Join us at Nellie’s in Palatine for a gleeful gathering of gregarious gamers. We can’t wait to see you. It all starts starts at 6pm, and goes until 11. WILL YOU WIN YOUR GAME? MAYBE. Will you win at FRIENDSHIP? Absolutely.


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

Who will win the RACE FOR THE GALAXY?


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 Bunny Bunny Moose MooseCaptain SonarSkullOathNidavellir, Race for the Galaxy, The Faceless, and more!


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 is the happiest little dinosaur?

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.


Steve gives The Faceless a “thumbs up!”

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!
