Slack is a free service for setting up private chat rooms. It's free to use and is available either as a web page or an iOS//Android app.

One has been set up for Western Massachusetts gaming. This is a place where gamers in the area can come together to find gamers, talk games, annouce events or sales, arrange trades, etc.

Right now it's using the free slack room, so to get in you need an invite. If you are interested, please geekmail myself or

Don't know how long you guys have had it setup but if it's just starting, I'd make sure to compare it against Discord. Discordapp.com.

They have a lot of overlap but I think discord does a better job of the loose affiliation style of organization while slack is a lot more targeted for business/everyone has the same email address type usage.

One advantage discord has is that you can make an invite link rather than having to manually invite.

I use both and my breakdown is largely in that way.
