Gamers and geeks unite!

The one thing gamers share with each other; dealing with the struggle of getting a gaming group together. Filling a 4-6 player game sounds easy, but we all know it isn't always a walk in the park. What if there were a group of like minded people who always found places to meet up, week to week, to play all sorts of games?

Well, Chicagoland, if you're free on a Tuesday night - we've got it covered.

Every Tuesday we gather at Durty Nellie's West Irish Pub in Palatine, IL (a Northwest Suburb of Chicago, right off of the Metra). Gamers from all over the Chicagoland area travel to play a huge number of tabletop games, drink a wide assortment of craft beers, and watch all sorts of geeky movies.

From 7:00PM Tuesday night all the way to 3:00AM Wednesday morning, we break out all sorts of games; Catan, King of Tokyo, Suburbia, Ogre, Magic: The Gathering, Avalon, Cards Against Humanity, and Keyflower are just some of the 60+ games that make an appearance every week.



Lately we've been averaging 40-50 gamers each night. At any given time there could be as many as 10+ different games going simultaneously. It's a very friendly group, and it's always easy to find a few people to kick off a game.

Some more photos of our Holiday celebration last month:





I bought and raffled off some goodies to spread the holiday spirit:


If you have any questions, feel free to ask! If you're in the area, stop by! We're a very friendly group and always welcoming new faces.

Drop in, drink up, geek out!

Lots of annoying movies! Was there one in particular you didn't care for or are you not a fan of having movies going in the background at all?

I've been attending since mid to late June and it has become a staple activity for me once a week. Our numbers are growing mostly due to the popularity of board gaming, but largely in part to the people who attend as well as Nellie's atmosphere.

Where else can you sit down with people of a similar interest to play board games while drinking great craft beer and eating class food?

Nowhere.

Great times, great people, great beer.

Come by and check it out!
