So I got a question on my blog about a gamer looking to find a group after moving to a rural Kansas town with a population of about 800.

My initial thought was, 'With a town of 800, you'll get to know them all soon enough and hopefully find a few that can be converted into board game geekery.'

I also suggested PBEM, online, and Skype enabled gaming.

You can puruse my answeres here: GeekInsight

Any other suggestions?

While there may not be folks who play BGG-style games, you can probably find folks who play Trivial Pursuit, Poker, and other card games. Come to a game and pull out something like Wits and Wagers or Incan Gold.

If your reader knows gamers elsewhere, Brettspielwelt is a great choice. I do that to play with several of my "remote gamer friends".

I like to play on Yucata.de. It's turn based, which can be a positive and a negative. You can play when it's convenient for you and you don't have to deal with nearly as many people ditching out of a game when they are losing. The downside is that most games aren't played straight through in an hour, making it frustrating for people who are looking for that experience.
