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 Australia, 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.

Enhancements for Find Players Searches

Some of our members might have noticed a few changes to our Find Player pages recently.  The Local Gamer and Online Gamer search pages have updates and new search options.

As always, please let us know through Feedback if you have any problems with these updates.


Search Options

The Custom Search options that appear on both Local & Online Gamer searches have changed.  We've move these options, they now appear in the page instead of a pop-up window.  This was done for a couple of reasons.  Some of our member were having problems on smaller screens.  This will also allow us to add newer search options in the future without cluttering the screen.


Page Settings

There are some new search options that are saved on a per-page basis.  You'll see them referred to as Page Settings.

Members have a new option to limit search results on both search pages.  You can now search for Exact Matches for Games & Genres.  When other members appear in your search, only the game systems & genres that match your own are displayed in the results.  We've had a lot of members ask for this feature.

A few of our Board & Card gamers have asked for an easier way to see the General Tab without needing to select every single one of them.  It's now a savable option in the Local Gamer search page.  In the future we'll separate RPG and Wargaming into separate tabs.  It'll clean up the clutter even more.

Minor Postal Codes Updates

Some new code just went live that verifies postal codes better than before.  With this, members will get a notification if they try to change their post code to one that isn't formatted properly to their country.

New members will see a note on Welcome page after sign-up and in their sign-up email.  It's important to include it in this email because it helps our new gamer friends to easily navigate the menu right away.

If you have problems with your postal code after this update, don't fail to send Feedback.  Anyone having trouble signing-up should send feedback and include your email address if possible.
