I founded the Indie Game Reading Club in 2010. I've written and developed RPGs since the mid-90s, now I mostly talk about playing them.

Not bad for initial research, but tiny sample size and all college students (all men?) made it a bit shaky for me and I was surprised to find only positive reasons for participation.
