What we're about

COViD-19 UPDATE (3/1/22): We're back to regular meetings! Please consult our weekly announcements for specifics, but generally, all are welcome, and individuals are welcome to attend without wearing masks, though people who prefer to wear masks are welcome to do so.

[tG] is a community of geeks who have a passion for tabletop games. We organize gaming events that allow the community to get together, play games, meet new people, and have fun. We work hard to welcome gamers of all experience levels (especially non-gamers who are new to the hobby).

Beyond that, the community has spawned friendships that have extended far beyond the gaming events. We’ve waged paintball battles, undertaken quests to the Renaissance Faire, met at the movies, and more.

[toggle] also works very hard to support small and local business, as well as building connections with game publishers and other companies that support our members’ hobbies and interests.

Come on out and toggle your inner geek!

Tabletop Tuesday at Nellie's [toggle Gaming]

Needs a location

[toggle Gaming] presents: Tabletop Tuesday! Gather your games and join us UPSTAIRS at Nellie's Gastropub on March 1st for the triumphant re-return of Tabletop Tuesday!

#### COVID SAFETY GUIDELINES

[toggle Gaming] encourages attendees to follow local, state, and federal guidelines for gathering safely. At present:

  • All attendees are encouraged to be vaccinated and boosted.
  • Masks are optional but welcome if you choose.

#### LOTS OF GREAT GAMES!

Bring your own games or use our library. We have over 400 games for you to use, or you can bring your own!

#### DESIGNERS WELCOME!

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.

#### PLAY ALL EVENING

We start at 6:00pm 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.

#### EVERYONE IS WELCOME!

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 (http://www.meetup.com/chicagogames/) as well; be sure to RSVP to the meetup there as well so we can tell the members there how much fun we have!
