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.

Comments

I like board games and card games. I don't have a ton of patience when it comes to learning a whole bunch of rules when I'm casually gaming, so board games and card games that are relatively rules lite are preferable. I used to play some tabletop rpgs a few years ago (I've played Hero system a few times and a little bit of Dark Heresy and Aberrant). What I'd really like is to get back into rpgs. I'm currently really interested in learning to play FATE Core.rnrnRight now, I'm available Thursday and Friday afternoon and night.

For a better understanding of these preferences, there is a question in the Edit My Profile section of the FAQ.  It's titled "What do the Roleplaying Preferences in my Gamer Profile mean?"  Select this line to open the FAQ in a new window.

Groups & Games Updates

We've made a couple of minor changes to our Group Finder pages.  These changes were to help clear up some confusion and make it easier to navigate the Groups. 

Breadcrumbs were added to the top of the page.  The selectable "I'd like to" button was moved up to the breadcrumb bar and is now green instead of blue.  We hope it makes the button easier for members to find.  A fair few of our members weren't aware the "I'd like to" button allowed them to add their own groups or change the search from Local to Online Groups.

Over the years a few members have asked why we don't have a Game Finder - well, we do.  Take a look at the search results, each line shows you the game each group is currently playing.  And to emphasize that games are listed, some of the in-page text was changed to Search Groups & Games.    

Let us know if these changes are helpful to you, we'd really like to know.
