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
Roll20 Player Network
Fate Core Group (group for ruleset I’ll be using)
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!
