What is LFGM?

LookingForGM.com is a matchmaking and game management tool for Game Masters that handles payments and game management across all the sites that you play games on, making it easy for players to find you and join your games!

The platform aims to help solve many of the current problems in gaming such as a reduced availability of games at odd times or on short notice, cancellations and attendance issues, and many more.

What is our mission?

In addition to solving existing problems in the table top gaming industry, we also are looking to the future. We want to expand the realm of Professional Game Masters not only in table top role-playing games, but also into story-telling, LARP, virtual reality, and other activities that fall into the category of role-play gaming.

We hope to empower our users to innovate and create new avenues to extend RPGs and transcend them to new levels.

Our Core Values

Simplicity
Reliability
Efficiency
Community
Trust

From a functional standpoint, the platform is designed to be easy to use, reliable to work as intended, and remain responsive and agile. Equally as important, we hope to nurture a strong and vibrant community that is focused on both individual and communal success to help drive the industry and grow the potential for Professional Game Mastering and Storytelling.

Our success lies in the success of our community.
