[RPG] How to get back into gaming


So I used to play RPGs a lot back in the day, but then life, work and the usual dull stuff got in the way and it all fizzled out. Now I've seen this site my interest and memories have returned and I think I should try to start playing again.

I think the problem is twofold: firstly I have to remember how to play, and find out what kind of games are played today. Second, find people to play with. I used to use some websites attached to games shops and cards in the window-type stuff, but there doesn't seem to be nearly as much gaming going on as there was.

So, what tips do you have for getting back into it after so much time, and what are the best ways of finding gamers to play with

Best Answer

Your local games store is usually your best bet. Since a certain company encouraged game stores to provide in-store gaming space back in the early 90s they've become the center of the gaming hobby in many places.

Also, the social networking "Meetup" sites seem to be populated with gaming groups inviting people in.

If you are in the Long Island, NY area you are welcome to join in any of the games I run (Currently Call of Cthulhu, Delta Green and Dresden Files).

Good luck in your search.
