I am looking for players in the Des Moines area for a new OD&D/S&W Core campaign. I have been a DM and player since ’81. I have experience with every version of D&D plus many, many other systems both old school and modern. After spending most of the ‘90s relegated to collecting and semi annual gaming, I’ve been actively gaming on a weekly basis since 2003. Unfortunately, no one in my current group is interested in an old school game.
In the old days you could start a game at a hobby shop or library and most people would put up with what you run. I don't know if that would work for you but if you're willing to put up with some casual play until your group gels it can often work. People looking for a game will often take what the GM is offering.
In Iowa, maybe you could get a bunch of the Republican primary candidates to join up in hope of soliciting votes.
I've met a several different people through hobby shops over the years. I'll be hitting the one store left here that kinda sorta carries rpgs. I figure if I'm looking for old school players, this would be the ideal place! So many views to the thread and no nibbles...
I don't think the Republican candidates would survive very long in my game. I'm a juvenile court caseworker working for the public schools in Des Moines!

Thanks for the invite Kesher! I'm afraid the price of gas may be a bit prohibitive for me to attend a regular game up North. I do try to get up there a few times a year to hang out with my cousin. He's the one that got me into D&D originally. We actually just recently got back to playing AD&D.
I'll shoot you a line the next time I head up there. I was planning on hitting The Source, so maybe we could have a little meet-up there.
