Nerds @ Heart is a dating scene for self-selected nerds: gamers, science types, readers, and so on. Activities include board games, trivia, and the like. They have both straight and gay meetups.

Right now it’s only in the Chicago area, but hopefully it will grow.

I spied the games Blokus, Stratego, Risk, Pictionary, Balderdash, Taboo, Upwords, Apples to Apples, and Ticket to Ride. The other games are too blurry to make out.
