It was Girls Game Shelf that got me thinking about how I never really play games with females. When I saw their video posted on Board Game Geek a few weeks ago I was like wow this is awesome, just a bunch of cool girls hanging out, having fun and playing games. This is like an alien concept to me. I also discovered @BoardGamePrincess on Instagram, two besties dressing up and playing great games. That’s lovely! I love dressing up to play games! Personally I don’t know any women who play tabletop games. I follow many females online who are avid gamers, but no female friends in real life who I can say ‘hey come over and play this’. I was thinking how good it would be to play more tabletop games with those of my gender, who know the language of board gaming (i.e not friends I’ve had to twist an arm to play!) I’ve only ever played with guys (apart from a friends girlfriend once or twice and my partner’s sister). It would be very different for me to play with other women in a group. This is in no way saying it would be preferable because it’s the people you play with that make the game, not the gender obviously, but it would be really cool and just a completely different dynamic to what I’m used to. I should definitely be thinking about starting a meet up or something to that affect. I’m beginning to see a pattern here. Things I should be doing vs what I actually am doing. Currently; trying to stop my daughter eating wires.
