I am a big fan

I am a big fan of services or programs that help people find like-minded individuals, especially when those people are gamers.

The latest discovery in this vein is NearbyGamers, a clever little set-up based on Google Maps (I can’t take any credit here, I found the site by reading Treasure Tables).

My favorite (when it’s working which, sadly, doesn’t seem to be all that often) is FindPlay.

Ah, if only I was any good with programming, I could make one of these myself.

EDIT, A few more services:

meetup.com: Not gaming specific but could be useful if you’re willing to shell out the money.

    Let me know what you like more about FindPlay and I’ll steal some of their features for NearbyGamers. 🙂 I tried to check it out, but it’s down now.

    Peter,

    I think that NearbyGamers actually incorporates most of the features that Findplay has with the addition of the cool Google Map feature too.

    You’ve done a great job! Keep it up! 🙂
