Nashville Tabletop Day is a celebration of board gaming in Middle Tennessee. Nashville Tabletop Day brings together people from all over Nashville and the Southeast to game and have fun in a safe, inviting environment.
Nashville Tabletop Day 2022 will take place on April 16th at Trevecca University near Downtown Nashville.
Meeple Mountain is thrilled to partner with Trevecca Nazarene University to bring Nashville Tabletop Day back for a 5th year. This year promises to be even better, with new sponsors, and many of your old favorites. Browse our game library or bring your favorites to share with new friends and old.
Help Support Nashville Tabletop Day!
Nashville Tabletop Day has been 100% free to attendees from day one, and we’re committed to that vision. However, running an event of this magnitude takes time and money. 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 offset the cost of running these important events.
You can also support us by purchasing one of the T-shirts we’ll have available at this year’s event. Anyone preordering a shirt is guaranteed to receive one. Only a limited number of additional shirts will be available at the event, so don’t wait.
Nashville Tabletop Day 2022 T-shirts will be two sided and feature a two color front with the following design and a single color back displaying sponsor logos.
This year we’re also selling our Tennessee Meeple T-shirt. Show your board gamer Tennessee pride with this one of a kind shirt! These shirts will be available in sizes S through XXXXL.

Are you interested in contributing to a growing and vibrant gaming community here in Nashville? Meeple Mountain is looking for local and national businesses who would be interested in donating in one of the following ways:
Nashville Tabletop Day is a board gaming event, and we expect to have a large number of games to give away. We’d also love to spread the word about local businesses by giving away coupons, gift certificates, or other items promoting your business.
Tables, chairs, A/V equipment, and more
We’re expecting between 300-400 people this year which means lots of tables and chairs. Is your business interested in providing these items, or contributing towards their rental?
Any business who sponsors Nashville Tabletop Day will receive mention in all of our promotional materials based on retail value: (t-shirts, programs, this website, etc.), and will receive callouts on our social media stream. We are also open to other creative sponsorship ideas, so send us your ideas!
Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about our remaining sponsorship availabilities. Don’t wait, slots are filling up fast.
This year’s Nashville Tabletop Day will be all open gaming; from 10am to 10pm.
Thanks to our numerous sponsors, Nashville Tabletop Day will have a number of door prizes that will be 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.
Door prize giveaways will occur at 1pm and 5pm. Play to Win winners will be announced at 9pm.
Play to Win!
In addition to the other games available to attendees, we have a large number of Play to Win 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 welcome and encouraged to bring their own games to play with friends (both new and old). However Nashville Tabletop Day will also have a large 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.
Interested in volunteering for Nashville Tabletop Day? An event of this size needs volunteers to make it successful and ours is no different. If you’re interested in working with us to make this event a smash hit, please let us know! We’re specifically looking for people to help us fill these roles.
Marketing / Sales
We’re looking for someone with experience in local fundraising. Are you willing to reach out to local businesses to help sponsor this event? We’ll be looking for sponsors for the venue and of course giveaways.
Librarians / Greeters / Day of Event
All the marketing and word of mouth will do no good if people arrive at the event and can’t find games to play, or have a poor experience. We’re looking for people who are willing to run games, greet people, assist people with learning games, and more.
All volunteers will receive a custom Nashville Tabletop Day t-shirt. If you’re interested in helping in one of these capacities, please sign up to be a volunteer now
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.
