Games, Gamers & Conventions near you

Find Players

Searching in your local game store or on message boards to find other local gamers can be pretty frustrating.  Roleplayers & Tabletop Wargamers have challenges finding other gamers who live near them.  Everyone hopes to find people interested in the games they like.  When you do find other gamers then you're crossing your fingers hoping they'll have similar opinions on genres & play-style.  Find Gamers is doing it's best to help you find other people that match your interests not only in Roleplaying but also Miniature & Historical Wargaming.

Gamer Profile

After registering and building a Gamer Profile, you'll be able to search for local gamers in your area or those interesting in playing online.  Other people can see your favorite games & interests then contact you about tabletop gaming opportunities.

Online Gamers

If you live in a sparsely populated area and can only game online, then you can add `Game Online` to your Gamer Profile.  Find Gamers show your Gamer Profile in the Local Gamers search (Within Canada, Great Britain & USA) but also list you in Online Gamers listings.

Find Conventions

Another feature is our member driven Convention & Event list.  Any registered user can create events.  They can be Conventions, Online Events or the more popular Local Only Events.  Local Only Events are often used for:  a local organization's game day, a hobby store's tournament or class on painting miniatures. Our gamers are looking for Roleplaying or Wargaming conventions, be sure to add yours.

Been years since I've played anything. Since there are kids here schooldays would be best time to play. I listed non-smoker because everyone here smokes outside.

Whoops! ( In Feature Creep)

I patched the site yesterday (2/4) to allow members to be logged in longer.  Apparently it worked great - until it didn't.  Luckily only a very few people were affected by the weirdness, I blame the Geek Zombie.  

I've figured out what happened and I'm testing a fix with only myself as the guinea pig.  In the meantime, the extended login times are turned off.  When the bug is completely fixed, this news article will either be updated or disappear.  Either way you'll know it has been fixed.

The good news is that once I make sure it works as designed, you'll be able to stay logged-in for days instead of hours.  Why am I doing this at all?  That is an easy answer, it is because some of our members asked for it.  I love adding new features for you guys.  The peculiar thing is that our early adopters, meaning the first 500 members, were very vocal about adding features and more games & genres.  I'm surprised with so many more members that the requests for new things has really slowed down.  So remember that Find Gamers is still interested in doing more for it's members.  If you have a good idea, you just have to ask.

Update 2/5 6:00 pm

There was another bug keeping everyone from reading their email.  Yes, it was related to the earlier patch.  It was fixed thanks to a quick note from member DukeofVandals.  If you find that you cannot log in, delete the cookie called findgamers_user in your browser and you should be golden.  If there are any more problems, send me feedback.  Thanks guys!

Update 2/8 9:00 am

Everything now appears to be working correctly.  Thanks for your patience guys.  We are now live with extended log-ins.  They only last 24 hours right now but will be extended when I'm sure they are still working right, probably by the end of this week.

Big money in Tabletop Kickstarters ( In Game News)

Apparently adding Kickstarter Events to Find Gamers was more than just a good idea.  This morning someone forwarded me the January 14th article from Luke Crane over at the Kickstarter Blog.  Let's just say I was pleasantly surprised by what I'd read there.  

To quote from the article, "Tabletop games are definitely experiencing a major cultural moment."  Based on the numbers in their blog entry, I can't agree more.  Tabletop games beat the snot out of video games in every possible way during 2015.  Total money pledged to tabletop games (88+ million dollars) was twice as large when compared to video games dollars.  But the most surprising to me was the difference in successful funding.  Tabletop gaming had more than 3.5 times the number of successfully funded projects than video games.

With that in mind, I'd like to remind our members to add your own tabletop gaming Kickstarters to Find Gamers.  Just head to any of the Events pages and select I'd like to then Add an Event.  Its also the right place to add your favorite upcoming convention as well.
