TT reader clem emailed me about NearbyGamers, a new player-finding site based on Google Maps (thanks, clem!).

It’s a great concept: You join, add yourself to the map, flag your profile with tags based on the games you like, and you’re off. The map shows little pins for everyone who’s part of the site.

And I love the creator’s approach: “I built the site because I, as a gamer, want to use it.” That’s one of the best reasons out there to assemble a resource like this. I’ve joined up, and I hope you’ll do the same — simple, useful player-finding sites like this are few and far between. I’d love to see this one succeed.
