How To Find Google+ RPG Players

Want to connect with an online tabletop RPG group? Maybe find a pickup game? Here are some places to post game notices and find players or groups:300px-Tabletop_role-playing_game_icon

And of course, post in the specific system you’re gaming in (Savage Worlds, DnD Next, etc.).

If you do a good job with your game pitch, I absolutely convinced you can find players on G+. G+ is absolutely amazing for gaming. Here an example from a game I pitched recently.

My pitch was for a rabbits or mouse game use Fate (Pitch was in part “I’m planning on starting a Google+ Hangouts campaign using either the Bunnies & Burrows (Watership Down) setting, or the Mouseguard setting, but using the Fate Core rules.”) That’s a pretty niche concept to get players for! But I was successful using these techniques.

Within 24 hours I had 22 respondents who wanted to play (4 wanted to play Watership Down/B&B, 6 wanted to play Mouseguard, 12 would play either one).

Here’s how I got that response:

I posted to these groups:

G+ Tabletop Roleplaying Games

G+ RPG Hangouts

https://plus.google.com/communities/101466247068767710475

Hangout RPG’s

https://plus.google.com/communities/112557825640881104663

Roll20 Player Network

Fate Core Group (group for ruleset I’ll be using)

https://plus.google.com/communities/117231873544673522940

I HIGHLY recommend you attach an evocative image as text-only posts often get ignored.

Here’s my posts in case you want to see my game pitch in action on these forums:

Just one group alone didn’t do the trick, but adding them all up together did!
