Meetups & Other
Meetup.com isn't the best thing out there, but it is out there.
I started the Austin RPG Meetup. It got going fairly well, then I quit going/organizing, quit playing games, pretty much quit talking/socializing with anyone... (depression seriously suxes). I lack the energy/excitement/time to work on this meetup again. In April '09 my "organizer" subscription runs out. Maybe another local will pick it up.
With needed encouragement and assistance from Flynn I helped build momentum for the Austin D&D Meetup. Of course the "retreating into oneself period of depression" mentioned above disconnected me from this as well. Not sure of its current status, looks strong and active. I hope to find out for myself in the new year.
Pen and Paper is an online player/game registry which I've used successfully to find fellow Austin area gamers.
Euro Style Boardgames
Great Hall Games - Saturday afternoons, Fridays until midnight!

Gives me Stone, I am the Shaffen Master!
