Palatine Tabletop Tuesday

Tabletop gaming, fun movies, craft beer, and great people! Tabletop Tuesdays is a weekly event held at Durty Nellie's West Irish Pub in Palatine, right off of the Metra (Pacific Northwest).

We play all sorts of different games. Some of the popular titles include Settlers of Catan, Carcassonne, Lords of Waterdeep, Iliad, Legendary, The Resistance, King of Tokyo, and SO many others. There are usually over 200 games there and we generally have from 50 to 70 gamers attending each time!

We play from 7:00PM all the way until 3:00AM. Can't make it early in the evening? Show up late! Many of our members do exactly that. Durty Nellie's serves food until 10:00PM, offers a late night food menu until 2:00AM, and has a MASSIVE craft beer selection (over 25 taps and over 100 bottles).

Plenty of parking available - free parking in the garage after 5:00PM.

Feel free to come by, grab a pint, rolls some dice / play some cards / collect some cubes, watch some flicks, and meet-up with some fantastic other people!

      It kind of changes based off of what other events are going on. I usually forget to post on here where we'll be, but the staff will always be able to direct you the right room on Tuesdays!

    It was a slower night this time around, but SO many games still made it to various tables. Quarriors, Tokaido, Mage Wars, Robinson Crusoe, Takenoko, 7 Wonders, Archer, Ca$h & Gun$, and SO many more! We also had a great turn out of first timers which is AWESOME! I hope to see you all again whenever you can make it out!

    This event was great. A nice way to get out of the house to relax and be social at the same time. I recommend this to anyone who likes to play multi-player games but needs people to play them with! Everyone was friendly and inviting. I had never seen or played many of the types of games there and people were nice to explain how the games are played. It was even fun to observe others playing.

    I've gotten more games to add to the game library this week! The new additions are Tokaido, Archer: The Danger Zone, Robo Rally, 7 Card Slugfest, Lifeboat, and Article 27.

    I also finally figured out how to teach some of the few games in my collection I needed to learn. Drop in and check it out! We are over 200 games now and average between 70-80 gamers each Tuesday!

    New faces are ALWAYS welcome!!!

      I'm going to be digging around everywhere to get my hands on one of those wooden box sets. I'll be asking the major FLGS in my area, if I find a place getting any in I will definitely let you know!

    Alas I have tech rehersal for a play in direct conflict this week...hopefully next week

    August 5, 2014

    • Kevin Z.

      That's a shame, but there is always next week! Also, depending on how late your rehearsal goes, we do stay there until 3 or 4AM. If you have the energy, we do game into the wee hours of the morning and are always getting late arrivals.

    Hey. I recently started using meetup. I'm hoping to meet some new people and find some good game or bar trivia groups in the suburbs. I've been to Durty Nellies multiple times, but didn't realize they had game nights. This looks awesome. Can't make it tonight, but would definitely be interested in coming out next week.

    • Kevin Z.

      Hey Ben! Sorry to hear you won't be able to make it tonight, but we are at Durty Nellie's EVERY Tuesday, so any week you have that night free - definitely drop by! You don't even need to bring anything, my roommate and I bring our collection of well over 200 games each week.
