    Question What tools do you use to share your gameplay session ?

    Hello

    What are you using to share your gameplay sessions with your friends and fans: results, pictures, tips & advices, etc
    Twitter? Facebook? Forums ? Phone-App ? Others ? or you don't share ...

    We are starting a new online service : www.smaash.me. It's available in beta (I should even say alpha) and we are searching for techno-geek addicted miniatures gamers for advices and testing to make us going in the right direction :-)

    Here is a really simple Gears of War game session to illustrate what we want to do

    Please share your thought and feedback about the project, we are just starting

    We have a Facebook group for our local games. One of us will write a report/photos etc. I am not sure I would use something like what you have created to be honest, simply becaise everyone in our group has Facebook. It would require me to encourage everyone to join your site just to post comments etc. which I wouldn't see happening tbh. Facebook is easier and does everything we need it to. Unless you have more bells and whistles planned....?

    Hello DFB

    Thanks, that's exactly the kind of feedback I'm searching for. What would be the "bells and whistles" you would like to have to say "wow, that's definitely something better than Facebook for sharing our stuff". The problem with an "isolated player", the one who get in a shop (or order a game online), he's a bit on his own and don't always know how to find local players, fan groups, events, etc.

    That's something we want to achieve with Smaash : You get a new game, you register it on Smaash, then we can help you to learn it, play a tutorial demo, log your scores and share it, find local players and communities, share or discover gaming tips, etc. Enhance your game experience in a certain way...

    Looks and sounds intriguing but similar to DFB we have a group on Facebook for my regular gaming group. We've tried having a forum etc before(on invision) and while its a nice idea cajoling everyone to sign up/post/remember its even there is the difficult bit, especially if you have players who don't come online very often.

    Its a nice idea though for finding local players etc, but doesn't Boardgamegeek already offer something similar to that? You tell it what games you have and where you live and you can see a list of other players in your area(if they wan't to be put on the list)?

    If Boardgame Geek does that you may have a tough time competing with it. I would suggest you simply check out boardgame geeks features on this, match them and then add in what you don't see that you think people will like/need. It's your project so I am not doing your homework for you! But if you have ideas etc I will be glad to give you feedback on them.

    For me, Facebook is working fine and I would not bother to look elsewhere as I live in a rural community and so networking with other gamers is a little easier in the respect that we can get together, its just we dont have the numbers to be found in bigger cities!

    Boardgame geek website is a little crazy to look at to be honest. Maybe your first step should be a website that looks a lot cleaner, smarter and fancier. Then make sure you match all their features. Then go beyond what they offer with some of your own ideas.

    That is a good point, BGG can hardly be called intuitive. If you could create a more user friendly version of what it has then I'm sure at least some people would be more inclined to use yours.
