Tabletop Tuesday at Nellie’s, 24 May 2022

[toggle Gaming] presents: Tabletop Tuesday! We’re up to two dozen days in May, so that tells me we’re in a board game crisis! Get over here and play some games! Join us at Nellies from 6pm to 11pm on Tuesday the 24th of May for open gaming, delicious beverages, tasty food, and camaraderie.

We’re working hard to defeat the nameless evil inside THE DARK TOWER.


[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 Dodos Riding Dinos, Return to Dark Tower, Tenpenny Parks, The Princes of Florence, The City, Mysterium Park, Jenga, and more!

Just a few of the games we played last week.


Tabletop Tuesday events have often played host to designers of all stripes, with games at all levels of development. Join us and who knows what future hit you might try?


A light and breezy game of Mysterium Park.

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 of us looks like the most noble Prince of Florence?


Keep a steady hand if you want to win at Jenga!

While [toggle Gaming] is an adult event held at a bar, we keep it pretty family-friendly. Our library has many all-ages 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.
