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.

Comments

I'm a wannabe writer who enjoys roleplaying games for the chance to really get into the head of a character. I prefer to build my characters for fluff rather than crunch, and greatly enjoy roleplay and character development, as well as being in a group that share my preferences. I value creativity and originality.

My favorite characters have been:

  • David: a wererat ranger that became a half-were (permanently shifted from the waist down) thanks to a potion meant to cure him of a vargouille curse. Well, it worked... (Pathfinder)
  • Gaius Quintos - an all-too-human techpriest that ended up leaving the Adeptus Mechanicus after growing tired of the stifling dogma. He got his implants removed, his original body regrown by a biomancer, and became his Inquisitor's first Interrogator. (Dark Heresy)
  • Gavin Wainscott - a seventeen-year-old boy from Cleveland with unnaturally good luck and anxiety about pretty much everything, who was dragged into a unit of superpowered humans to fight Nazi Germany in World War Two. (Mutants & Masterminds)

Failure, Irritation and Zero Notification ( In Feature Creep)

If you have noticed some weirdness with Find Gamers lately, just know you aren't alone.  Our hosting company decided to convert it's web servers to an entirely different product without notifying it's clients.  The result was like boarding a train to failure and not a little bit of irritation on my part. 

I won't go into all of the details but the site kind of blew up for a few days.  We think everything is working right now.  At this point, the only weirdness might involve our web fonts.  You'll know if they aren't working just by looking at the main menu on the left. 

Try clearing your browser cache if they aren't showing up yet.  If you are still affected, please log-in and then let me know through Feedback.

Got Wargame Ratings? ( In General)

In the course of updating the available wargames in our Games & Genres, I've been trying to add more popular games to Find Gamers.  But it's hard to find a websites or publications that have information about the popularity of different wargames.  So I'd like to ask our members about some information we need your help in finding.

The first would be industry data on the sales of wargames over the past few years.

Secondly and more useful, do you know of a website that has a list of wargames that's similar to Board Game Geek's ranking system.  This type of information would let us know more about games that slow-burn over years.  They are popular over decades instead of driven by pop-culture trends.

Board Game Geek does have a "Wargame" section but it's a list of wargame style board games.  So it only includes games with boardgame mechanics like Axes & Allies but not for games like Bolt Action.  Their list does have a few very popular pop-culture games like the X-Wing Miniatures Game.  But it's a list voted on by predominately board gamers, not wargamers.  We're looking for games voted on by wargamers.

Our members probably know more about Wargames than I do.  If you aware of a source with information that Find Gamers can use, please pass it along to us.  Thanks!
