Burning Question - What is Your Gaming Community Like?


In conjunction with this month's blog carnival on Community, I thought this would be an appropriate question to ask.

What is Your Gaming Community Like?

Here's some follow-up questions to guide your answers.
  • Where is your gaming community located?
  • How big would you say it is?
  • What games are being played? Are there any games more predominant than others?
  • Is it easy to find other players and GMs outside your gaming group?
  • Are there any community activities being run like conventions or something to attract new players?
  • How many game stores are there in your community? Do they run any RPG-related activities?
  • Is there a LARPing community?
  • How does the wider community look at the gaming community?
Hopefully we can also get some answers from those who are outside of the US, I'm really curious to know how is gaming like in other countries.
