I just signed up on a Ning social site dedicated to board games and board gamers. The site is just starting out, I think I am member 25.
Ning offers a nice set of tools to create a social network, so I am hopeful that this might be a nice location to discuss games with other gamers. I know we already have BGG but it can be so noisy.
The site is called SophistiGames and is ready for people to join now. When you sign up be sure to visit my profile, and me as a friend, and let me know that you found the site from this blog entry. Hope to see you there.
