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.

New 3d miniatures are on the horizon ( In Sites Worth Mentioning)

David Lowry over at Club Fantasci has an interesting find on a new 3d miniatures company called Imagine 3D Miniatures.  It's worth the look.

I wonder if in the next few years we'll see complaints from sculptors and miniatures companies like Reaper in the same way buggy manufacturers complained about automobiles.  Either way this is the start of a change in miniatures that will revolutionize gaming for all forms of the tabletop experience.  


You can read his write-up on the Imagine 3D Miniatures and a lot more here at Club Fantasci.

Sly Flourish on Finding Players ( In Opinions & Ramblings)

Our goal here is to help tabletop gamers find new friends and bringing them together to enjoy the fun of the tabletop gaming experience.  It is a great stress reliever and good social experience for many folks, giving them a break from the real world.  Occasionally we like to post parts of articles from other web sites who have some good advice for us.  Mike Shea, also known as Sly Flourish wrote an article a couple of years ago that continues to be a good source of ideas.  His short article on Finding Players using a variety of sources is solid and practical.  I recommend not only reading his suggestions but giving them a try, the results might surprise you.

Of all the difficulties facing your D&D game, the greatest will always be finding and keeping a great group of players. Some groups have managed to stay together living through adventures for decades. Most of us, however, have to work actively to build and keep our groups going as long as we can. The demands of our time, our commitments to family and work, and where we live often gets in the way of us forming and maintaining a regular group.

As times change, so change the ways we can bring players to our table. Today we're going to look at a few ways you might find players and get them playing D&D at your table.

You can find the entire article here at the Sly Flourish website along with a lot of other good.
