I figured I would ask the BGGers this. I like a lot of the games that are highly suggested here. However, most of the people I know either A) don't play games, or B) play games like Monopoly. Is there any way that you all know of that I can find people in my area to play with?

Assuming you have friends, ask them to come over and try out a new game with you.

If you don't have friends, make friends.

Look at the menu to the left and scroll down until you see "gamer database".

Enter your zipcode and search. Good Luck!!

Finding people to play games with
I'd recommend Access Denied, a huge free database of gamers. It's searchable by game, skill level and location.

I'd love to see the Geek add an optional City or Zip Code field which would let us search for other BGGers in our area. For those in major metro areas I would think it wouldn't be hard to find other BGGers via Google whereas for those of us in the sticks, its nigh on impossible.

Looking for Gamers
We have a free classified section in my magazine (Games International) for clubs and gamers seeking players. Distribution is worldwide so it doesn't really matter where you are. Just send me a private message.
