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.

Minor Upgrade

Today (July 4th) we upgraded software on the server side of our site.  Originally we thought it would force everyone to change their passwords, surprisingly that turned out not to be true.  No one is happier about that than Maelish.

For our members, the upgrade gives a minor speed boost and changes to password encryption.  The new version will encrypt (hash) your password far more effectively than before.  We recommend that our members change their passwords.  When you do, it'll save a far more difficult to crack version of your password.

If you experience any other odd problems or error messages, please send Feedback.  We really do appreciate it!

Password Migration

Sometime in the next month Find Gamers will upgrade it's password encryption methods.  We have not been hacked or had a security snafu.  Rather, it's a proactive measure to keep your account more secure.   It's not just us, a lot of websites are doing the same.  Honestly, it's just a smart move and helps to lock things up a little tighter.  The change should be fairly painless for our members.  

What You Need to Know: 

  • The update will invalidate everyone's current password including my own.  
  • You'll need to use Forgot Password? on the Sign In page.
  • There will be a notice on our front page afterwards pointing back to this news article.  It will be there for at least 30 days after the upgrade.
  • This news article will be updated to reflect the change.

Why are we doing this upgrade now?  It's because we're updating the coding language to make the site faster.  Faster and more secure sounds good right?
