Announcing an open beta for the FFG Community Wizard, a new online tool

Note: The Community Wizard is now in open beta testing. Please email [email protected] with any technical concerns you encounter while using the Community Wizard Beta. 

Click to visit the Community Wizard.

While this Beta is being rolled out across the site and as we work to fix issues and improve things, you may experience slowdowns and other problems during the next 48 hours, we thank you in advance for you patience.

Whether board, card, miniatures, or roleplaying, the majority of your games have one thing in common: you need people to play them with. But what if your normal gaming group isn’t available? What if you’re traveling, and want to meet other gamers? What if you want to try a new opponent, venue, or game? What if there was a way to instantly locate new players, events, and retailers with the push of a button?

Fantasy Flight Games is pleased to announce the open beta of the FFG Community Wizard! This powerful online tool was designed to help you find more people and places to play your favorite FFG games. Its comprehensive search function allows you to see all the local activity surrounding your favorite FFG games, placing you in touch with new people, venues, and events with which to play your favorite games.

The world at your fingertips

Complementing the Community Wizard’s search capabilities is a full suite of online tools. Simply create a free FFG forum account (current members already have access), and enjoy:

  • An interface that provides customized options depending on your account type. Upgrade your standard “player” account to an “organization” account (such as a retailer, game club, or convention), and become even more accessible to customers, members, and guests! For more on the specific benefits to organizations, visit our Community Wizard for Organizations website.
  • Convenient event management tools. Players can propose events through their favorite local retailers, and retailers can approve them with the click of a mouse. Manage the guest lists, send mass messages to guests, and more!
  • A robust private messaging system, including convenient color coding and optional email forwarding. When used in conjunction with the Community Wizard’s search capabilities, this helpful communication system lets you quickly connect to the players, retailers, and event organizers your searches locate.
  • Enhanced control over your collection of games. List games you own, as well as those that you’re currently playing or interested in playing. Like-minded local players can then use the Community Wizard to inform you of upcoming games and events!

With its wide range of helpful functions, the Fantasy Flight Games Community Wizard is an online connectivity tool like no other. This powerful resource makes connecting with players more convenient than ever before, leaving you time for what’s most important: enjoying your favorite games.

If you’re a player, visit our Community Wizard website to learn more. If you’re a retailer, convention organizer, or game club manager, we have a special website designed to answer your questions. Then, head to the Community Wizard and try the beta for yourself!
