Mongoose News - New UK Event for Female Gamers


Staff member

Recent events in the tabletop gaming hobby have made many of us aware that it is all too easy for an atmosphere to develop around gaming events that is uncomfortable for or even hostile to female gamers.

In light of this, and after discussions with Mongoose Publishing's mostly female staff, we have decided to hold a gaming event dedicated to women alone. Here at Mongoose's offices in Swindon, Wiltshire, we have a great set of gaming facilities and we would like to invite you to join us for a day of gaming in a safe and relaxed environment.

The event will be run by female staff, and all tabletops games (RPGs, boardgames, and miniatures games) will be welcome.

Before we set a date and begin arranging games, we would like to see how much interest there would be in such an event (and if you are a female GM willing to run games, we really want to hear from you!).

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, please drop me a line at

If there are enough attendees, we will be looking to run this event in the first half of 2018. We will not be charging for attendance, nor will you meet any 'hard sell' for Mongoose products. Our intent is purely to provide a relaxed environment where female gamers can meet one another and play games without concern for inappropriate behaviour.

If you know of anyone who might be interested in such an event, please feel free to forward this message on to them.

Although I cannot attend for both gender and geographic reasons, I wholehearted embrace and support this idea. My group is lucky that we have 2 out of 6 female gamers and we're trying to bring in more.

Good show, Matt. Make it a regular event.
