Welcome to Game-Events, your simple event manager
Welcome at Game-Events, or GE for short. We are here for you to plan, create and manage your events in a simple and easy way. we are here for all your events, though Game-Events - currently - focusses on events for board gamers. Though this simply means there are currently a bit more features for board gamers. Like being able to create a list of your games and to say in your event which games will be played. It most definately doesn't mean you can't create events for, well, everything you want.
Also: This site makes it easy for you to work with events for groups specifically. The idea is not only that you create your events, but that you create them for a specific audience. Every member can create or join one or several groups and participate in creating and managing events with the other members of this group. Want to create a sub-group? Easy. Want to invite new members? Sure. Need a new group? Go ahead. Just remember that all events are created for a group.
Last, but not least: You are in control. Whether we are talking your events, groups or any other data (think of your profile for example). This site is there for you! So if you are missing features, have ideas or think the existing features can be improved: please let us know. We are always looking to improve our services to you.
Current goals: Board Gaming
As said earlier, our current focus lies with the board gamer and we are creating features to create board gaming events. Think of your regular gaming night with your friends or your board gaming group / community (of every size). We are currently working on making that as easy as possible.
For example: If you go to your profile you'll notice a games tab. This is where you can manage your collection of games. This feature uses the API of BoardGameGeek (board gaming community) to search for games. These games can then be used to add to your event during creation.
The Future: sky is the limit
We do not intend to stop here though. Sky is the limit and there are tons of great features to add. We aim to bring the information to the user in the easiest way possible. There is always someone who organizes these events and we'd like to make this as hassle free as possible, but also for the attendees. The event should be brought to them and they shouldn't have to go through all sorts of hoops to find what they like and to say they'll attend. The information should be brought to them and they should be able to let the organizer know they'll attend in the easiest way possible... and we'll do everything we can to make that possible.
Our roots: Beyond-Control
This site, Game-Events, found its roots in a small gaming community called Beyond-Control. An international community and thus mostly active in online gaming, but a small group also met once a year to play a LAN together and another subset thereof met regularly to play a good old board game. Organizing the LAN or getting the group together regurlarly to play could be a hassle though and the need arose for a simple way to create, organize and communicate a game event. Hence the birth of Game-Events.
