Creating & Managing Inclusive Gaming Groups

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many say that tabletop and other forms of non-electronic games are dying. But it isn't true!

How do we, as gamers, create vibrant and welcoming communities? Always wanted to play board games? Love the idea of painting miniatures? How do you even FIND people to play with? How do I create my own gaming meetups?

Our panelists will give you tips on creating game groups, finding public game meetups, and enjoying gaming conventions as a newbie. Want to be a better organizer? We'll work with you to build positiveness to your current groups, how to find new players, and how to encourage their participation.
