Looking for a Game/Looking for more players
Since I've had several people pm me about gaming, I though I'd start this thread to assist in people hooking up for a game. It would also be a good place to post links to various clubs etc that exist. I intend to add a few of the Melbourne gaming groups I'm aware of.

A long long time ago....

....there used to be a group called DWARF (Dandenong Wargamers and Role Players Federation) that got together in a little school at Noble Park / Waverly Gardens area.

They were pretty big with PnP RPG, but more so with table top games like Warhammer 40k etc. Good bunch of guys, one of the main members worked at MilSims (back when they were based in Jedco on Cochranes Rd Moorabbin) - I dare say someone there'd know if they are still about.
Only info for them I could find was: D.W.A.R.F.

Hey everyone, I had no idea this section of the forums was here.
Anyways, recently I have helped get a boardgame group going here in Newcastle Australia. NABS.
Most boardgamers will no the site , but we have a guild on Board Game Geek Newcastle Area Boardgaming Society | BoardGameGeek
So anyone in the area feel free to drop us a line.

For those that don't know BGG BoardGameGeek | Gaming Unplugged Since 2000 go and have a look. It is a huge database of all things gaming (miniatures, wargames,boardgames and there will soon be a RPG Geek site up and running)

Kind of a newb at this
Kinda a newb at this, but I thought I'd give it a try. I am currently one of three in a gaming group looking for more people to join our group. We play all sorts of games:
Hero Systems (aka Champions)
2nd Edition Dungeons and Dragons
White Wolf (Vampire: The Masquerade, Werewolf the Apocalypse)

Those are the ones we mostly are involved with. We are looking for players to join our table in the Iowa City/Coralville, IA area. If interested, please pm me or email me at ! Have a great day and thanks! :bighappy:

If a group in Melbourne is looking for one more, or even looking for a GM I'd be happy to trial running the odd game.
