Guthries has the widest selection of board games available at a bar in Chicago (as far as we know…), from timeless game like Monopoly and Scrabble to newer options like Cards Against Humanity.

You can sink your date’s battleship, Connect Four, or play a game of Marry, Date or Dump?

Settlers of Catan, Guess Who, Jenga, Stratego, Rotten Apples, Apples to Apples, Yahtzee!, Sorry, and more!
