What we're about

*** We rely on member contributions to defray the expenses of running this meetup, such as transporting and replacing games. Please consider supporting us by donating here: https://secure.meetup.com/Beer-Board-Games-Chicago/contribute/ ***

================

Are you a nerdy Chicagoan who loves beer and board games? Us too! Come join us for regular boozy sessions at bars and breweries across the city as we get our game on.

Our usual events are the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at Navigator Taproom in Logan Square. We also try to add in a weekend event once a month at a different brewery to accommodate those who can't make our usual time. At B&BG events, we always bring a sizable amount of games from our own collections, but feel free to bring that game you've been dying to play!

In addition to regular get togethers, we're also working on arranging testing and launch events for new games, bulk orders and other specials from gaming retailers and websites, and much more. We always welcome feedback for new ideas!

BOARD GAME DESIGNERS! If you are getting ready to launch a game on Kickstarter, please reach out to our admins about demos! We are happy to preview your game at our events. We get to offer our members exclusive sneak peeks, you get a shot to earn more backers, it's a win-win! If you are a Chicago-based designer, please reach out to us as well. We're trying to build a community of game players and creators in the city, and we have some ideas about future events.

Beers & Board Games Online!

Online event

We may not be able to hang out at Navigator, but that doesn't mean we can't get our game on! Join us on Zoom to socialize and organize an evening of digital tabletop games. Many favorites, such as Codenames, Carcassonne, Dominion, and Wingspan, among many others, can be played online. Our organizers will be on hand to help you get set up and running. Please make sure to RSVP so that you can get the details to join us on Zoom. Showing up with your beverage of choice is highly encouraged! Please consider supporting our great partners like Navigator Taproom or District Brew Yards who have growlers and cans available for pickup :)
