Deathscythe4722 From what i have seen over the last 3 months, the playerbase at my FLGS is 100% white males. The only thing approaching diversity is one white guy who has a german(?) accent, and i've only seen him there once.

Blue Liger We have people from English, Australian, American, Scottish, Irish, Korean, Chinese, Indian backgrounds as well as some Gretchin to top it off!

jaws900 not many at mine. 1 black guy who is awsume and loves to have a joke as racial sterio types. Took a bucket of KFC upstairs to the battle bunkers and when we came down for a break after our game if could smell fried chicken and he started to pretent to cry. He's a riot. He also said one of my fave quotes ever;
"Vanillia Ice makes the KKK look black!"

chromedog I try not to venture into my local GW.

Knee-deep in ankle-biters last time I was there (several years ago).

My other 'local' separates its gaming area from the store. I've been into the store but never ventured upstairs to the gaming room.

Vrykolas2k There's one black fellow who occasionally plays tournaments where I go, excellent sportsman and tactician. There was one Japanese guy, but he hasn't been around for awhile. No hispanics. Mostly white guys. Very few femmes, sadly.

ChugginDatHaterade My hobby shop is nothing but white folks.

Perhaps the gay/lesbian players aren't human, and therefore couldn't be women.

Maybe they have several homosexual donkey players.

That's gotta win most diverse playerbase right? (providing B&K doesn't kill them...)
