Seems a shame that the events you can add are currently restricted to the very limited locations they have decided to put in (no pubs for example) but hopefully they will make regular improvements.

Agreed. Can only put game shops in. What about those of us who run groups?

Graeme: it's coming soon. We just launched less than two weeks ago, so we're still in progress. We only list game stores currently due to safety and privacy concerns (it makes players generally meet in a public place - game stores). We'll be adding reporting and blocking features in the next few weeks (along with many other features), and then users will be able to enter custom addresses. Thanks for your feedback. Let me know if you have any other questions at adam@iamgamefor.com

Not only will non-game store locations be added soon(see other reply) but group/club functionality is also coming in the next few weeks, right after custom addresses and locations. We're technically still in soft launch and haven't really event started to do any marketing yet, so we appreciate the feedback from early adopters like you. Stores will be able to claim their listings and enter events next week (which will greatly increase the number of events in the database) so we needed to start slowly and 'kick the tyres' so to speak. Feel free to sign up for our newsletter at our website www.iamgamefor.com or ask me any questions at adam@iamgamefor.com for more. Thanks for your feedback!

Quick question, are gaming store owners all aware of their listings in this app, or have they been added by users so maybe don't know they'd even there? I ask because my local store is listed and has an event at least once a week, but nothing is listed currently...

Verified stores launched earlier this week. Stores that have been verified can access the GameFor store portal and enter events. We are still working to get the word out to stores and for stores to hear from their customers that having events on GameFor is useful. We appreciate everyone who can help spread the word.

We are also going to be at the GAMA Trade Show next month (March) to get better access to more store owners and continue to promote the app.
