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.

Grew up playing 2nd Ed AD&D. Played the tabletop and the classic PC RPGs (Baldur, Icewind, etc.). Tried 3rd Ed, but found it too easy to game the system and lost interest. 4th Ed is an abomination before God and man. I'm looking to start again and find some gamers to get a new campaign going. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________ PROS: I keep it light. I'm a friggin joy to be around. I own large tracts of land in Africa containing conflict diamonds. I don't flake. I believe Jews *can* be paladins. I keep shampoo and bear mace on hand for hipsters and Whoovians. That's it.

Surprising Benefits in Tabletop Gaming ( In Opinions & Ramblings)

As Patrick Allen over at Lifehacker has pointed out, there are quite a few surprising benefits to roleplaying games.  Naturally we'd expect most of these benefits to extend to wargames and of course board & card gaming.  

The first obviously would be the benefit of making new friends through table-top gaming.  But there is often a subtle unrecognized growth in social skills development that you get through conversation.   And let's not forget that with most gaming you get to flex your brain through use of tactics, learning how to work as a team and problem solving skills.  

However roleplaying is often unique from other types of tabletop gaming because it requires you to work through a dynamic and often an unpredictable story.  It doesn't matter if you are the Game Master running the game or one of the players.  Playing your character's personality through the game's adventure and the situations that unexpectedly occur require a high degree of creativity.  Over time you simply get better thinking outside the box and that has real world benefits.

In short, gaming is a useful hobby.  You meet new people and can develop a number of new skills.  If you don't believe me, read the full article at Lifehacker.  It's called "The Surprising Benefits of Role-Playing Games (and How to Get Started)."  You can read the entire article on their site.

The Compendium ( In Feature Creep)

Our members might notice a new option in your menu options today.  The Compendium is in beta testing for our registered members.  It is intended to be a by the numbers catalog of high quality web sites that will be scrutinized by the toughest critics we can find - our members.

At this time The Compendium is accepting website recommendations.  In the near future you'll be able to report bad links and more importantly you'll be able to vote on sites that appear in the page.  The site's rank will rise based on your votes.   During beta testing an error or two might creep in, please report those errors in Feedback when possible.  The number of features The Compendium eventually has will be driven by its use.
