I just got told that I was no longer welcome as a player for the new World of Darkness campaign the local gaming group have been talking about the last month or so,  and that got me thinking about gaming groups.

Gaming works better when you all have similar goals, similar agendas, when you sit down to game. If you all know what you want and you know what you like then you can all help each other to make the experience fun and exciting.

So what to do when things don’t work out, when one of the players don’t fit with the rest of the group? Well, one option is to kick them out. Maybe not the best one, feeling can get hurt and friendships can be tarnished. It can be done in a number of way, try not to be a dick about it. Doing nothing is likewise a bad idea, if things aren’t working out then you’ll probably not have much fun. In between these extremes are a number of ways to handle it. Try to talk about, try to find a way to make things work.

Games are supposed to be a form of entertainment, so find a way to find the fun.
