Help Fund Nashville Tabletop Day!
It’s no secret that running an event takes money. This will be the first year that we’ve had to pay for the venue alongside tables and chairs and other expenses. If board gaming makes you happy, and you enjoy Nashville Tabletop Day or other events put on by Meeple Mountain, please consider making a donation to help us cover the costs of this event. We can accept cash, check, or PayPal.
Admissions – Admission to Nashville Tabletop Day is 100% free, but we will be accepting donations to help support Meeple Mountain.
Will I need my ticket? – Printed or digital tickets should be shown at the door so that we can check attendees in and keep track of head count.
Food / Drinks – Food and drink ARE allowed in the building, but be respectful of other gamers. There are a number of restaurants located nearby.
Children – As with all attendees, our goal is that children and their parents have fun while respecting the enjoyment of others. Children under the age of 10 must always be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian; minors age 10-17 must have a responsible guardian present at all times.
Alcohol / Smoking (vaping) – Alcohol or smoking are not allowed on premises.
Sportsmanship – Don’t be a jerk.
Lost Items/Theft – Nashville Tabletop Day, Meeple Mountain, and Watkins Community Center are not responsible for any lost or stolen property.

This year’s Nashville Tabletop Day will be all open gaming with one exception. We’ll be running a single elimination Kingdomino tournament which culminates in a game played on our giant sized Kingdomino board. The winner of each initial game will win a copy of Kingdomino. The winner of the final game will win a copy of Queendomino.
Giveaways will occur at 1pm, 5pm, and 9pm.
Play to Win giveaways will be announced at 9pm as well.
Thanks to our numerous sponsors Nashville Tabletop Day will have a number of door prizes that will given away throughout the day. To reduce downtimes experienced in past years we’ll be using an SMS based system to notify winners.
Anyone who wishes to be eligible to win a door prize must provide a cell phone number. This number will only be used for the duration of the event and will be deleted from our records once the event is over.
If you’ve not already provided your phone number, please update your order on Eventbrite using the following steps:
- Visit Eventbrite.com/mytickets.
- Click on Nashville Tabletop Day.com (free order, not a tshirt order).
- Click Edit in the top right corner
Giveaways will occur at 1pm, 5pm, and 9pm.
Play to Win!
In addition to the other games available to attendees, we have a large number of Play to Win games. Unlike library games, each person who plays one of these games will receive one chance to win that game. Only attendees who play that game will be eligible to win that game.
Winners will be notified via SMS at 9pm.
Attendees are encouraged to bring their own games to play with friends (both new and old). Nashville Tabletop Day will also have a selection of some of the newest and hottest games, alongside classic games.
Attendees will be required to provide a drivers license when checking a game out of the library. The drivers license will be returned when the game is brought back to the library table.
Nashville Tabletop Day 2018 will take place on April 28th from 10am to 10pm. The venue is Watkins Community Center at 616 17th Ave N, Nashville, TN 37203, just blocks from downtown Nashville.
Where else can I game in Nashville while I’m waiting for Nashville Tabletop Day? – Meeple Mountain hosts a Game Night on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of every month.

Meeple Mountain is the sole owner of the information we collect. We only have access to/collect information that you voluntarily give us via email or other direct contact from you. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone.
We will use your information to respond to you, regarding the reason you contacted us. We will not share your information with any third party outside of our organization.
Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email in the future to tell you about other events.
Meeple Mountain is dedicated to providing a harassment-free and inclusive experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, gender identity or religion. Therefore, we do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Please familiarize yourself with our definition of harassment, and what we expect of attendees.
Harassment includes offensive verbal comments; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If you, as an attendee, feel harassed, you may inform the offender that you would like the harassing behavior to stop immediately. If you are not comfortable doing this, you may contact a staff member who will address the concern.
If you, as an attendee, are asked to stop behaving in a way that is interpreted as harassment, you are expected to stop, immediately. Arguing about the situation or trying to convince someone that your behavior is not harassment will not get you anywhere. Just stop. If you disagree that your behavior is harassment, that is fine, but the behavior should stop anyway.
If anyone engages in harassing behavior, organizers may take any action they, in their sole discretion, deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion.
Staff will be happy to provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference. We value your attendance.
