Games, Gamers & Conventions near you
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.
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.
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.
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.

I am just getting back into roleplaying games after a 8-10 year gap in play. Previously I played D&D (2 & 3.5) as a pre-teen and teen.
My play style is story-heavy with a preference towards heavy roleplaying and sandbox style worlds as opposed to rules lawyering the heck out of a good story. I'm pretty skilled in PC and NPC development and was known as one of the better GMs back when I played. I'm not really looking to GM or DM right now, just wanting to learn some games.
Right now I have no particular preference for game, as I would be willing to learn rules for any game on the market, so long as it came with a group willing to accommodate my lackadaisical play style and desire for a good roleplaying session rather than an XP and loot gathering environment. I would like something on the cheaper end though, since I am a cheap person by nature, and I do lean towards fantasy/sci-fi for genres. Home-brewed games are a plus, so long as you are willing to teach me the system you're using. I'm a quick learner.
I work from home so my schedule is flexible, but evenings and weekends are preferred since I do not currently have a car. If we're setting up an online game, then literally any time is good.

You asked for them, so we've added two new options for your Gamer Biography in Roleplaying Gamestyle Preferences. You can now rate your interest from 0 to 5 in Crunchy and Lightweight. They both refer to game system rules. Do you prefer more rules in your game system or less? Some of us probably like more of both depending on your DM, GM or the story your playing through.
Remember that your interests often change. So it's a good idea to update your Gamestyle Preferences once in a while.
In case you wonder why these were added, they were voted for in our Survey Page. It's where our members also vote on adding new Game Systems as well. Don't forget to vote!Read more
