How to Find a Boardgaming Group
Boardgaming is a social activity. It happens at a table and requires other people to play along with you. So, if you are a fan of board games, but your friends and family are not, how can you find other people who are? The answer to this question is the topic of this week’s post.
Early in my boardgaming days, when my only exposure to eurogaming consisted of the base sets of Dominion, Carcassonne and Settlers of Catan, I didn’t have the luxury of the large gaming group that I currently belong to. I knew there had to be other gamers in my community, so I set out to find them. You can find out more about that story in my about page.
If you don’t have a local gaming convention or friendly local game store to call, how can you find gamers in your area? I have four internet resources to recommend, and I will use them to find gaming groups in Cleveland, OH. No, that’s not where I live. I just picked a city that I knew little about to see what I could come up with. And hey, Cleveland rocks, right?
I hope these tips help. Who knows, you might be as lucky as I have been in finding my group. I’ve made some great new friends and had some excellent experiences gaming with them.
How have you guys found your gaming groups?
