The DC/NoVa Gamer's Guild Pages

Welcome to the Gamers' Guild! The Guild founders set up this Meetup group to generate enthusiasm and new opportunities for gamers in DC and NoVa. We wanted to provide the benefit of the discussion forum, the calendar, and the other Meetup tools to all of the various pockets of players out there running their own games. So the group is organized more as a federation of different gaming groups rather than attempting to organize mass events for the entire membership. For those "big bang" events, we mark our calendar when other groups hold those kind of functions (e.g. the MicroCon that the Alexandria Gaming Group sponsors). For us, in addition to organizing breakout groups, we also like to organize (or at least mark on the Calendar) social events that folks can pick & choose to attend -- just another way to meet other like-minded gamers and generate buzz.

The Gamers' Guild leans towards RPGs, minis, strategy games, CCGs, and, to some degree, videogames and traditional games. We encourage our members to take full advantage of the Meetup tools to find other gamers and share updates on your games and express your opinions and excitement. Some ideas for using the Meetup:

  • Use the Game Bazaar on the Messages area to announce your gaming group and find players.
  • Use the RSVP function on the Calendar to gather and coordinate new players for an open event.
  • Mark the Calendar for your closed events so that everyone has a taste for what other folks are doing.
  • Discuss anything you want about gaming in the Messages: news & announcements, opinions, coordination for events, ...
  • Use the Messages and Files section to support/supplement your actual games, share running storylines and updates for campaign games, ...

Finally, be imaginative! That goes unsaid for gamers, of course, but try out different ideas and see if they stick. Welcome aboard!
