Find a Game Group

Looking for a game group in the Dallas/Fort Worth area? Here are some tips. Start with #1, and if you don’t find what you need, keep working down the list of things to do until you have success :-)

1)  Post on the DFW Roleplayers groups:

2) Post or peruse other area gaming groups:

In addition to posting in the groups above, try:

3) Participate in open gaming venues and organized play:

All of the above venues are ‘open’ places where you can meet folks, make connections, figure out what you like without getting into a big commitment.

4) Let folks in open games know you are looking for a group:

Create some do-it-yourself business cards (Avery has some nice home printer version: http://goo.gl/ko1kc) with your contact information (email, facebook, google+, twitter, etc.) to hand out to folks. Don’t forget, when you play a game, hand out your business card with a “looking for group” note on it so you can leverage your new gaming friends.

5) Offer to run a game:

If you want to play in a system and can’t find a GM, try running your own game. I’ve found that generally you can find a player or two who is happy to take a turn at GM’ing occasionally, so even if you don’t prefer to GM, starting a game group at a local game store then rotating GMs once you’ve gotten a good core group can be successful.

6) Use other online game finders:

National Online Game Finders

7) Play games online:

Want to game online using Google+ or other Virtual Table Tops (VTTs). There are lots of tools below. Also, I’ve found that the Roll20.net’s looking for group forum at http://community.roll20.net/categories/looking-for-group has TONS of open games. Just troll that page and you’ll eventually find a game you’ll like.
