We knew that there is a huge audience worldwide as there are gamers of
all ages playing or watching games 24/7/365.
As the majority of the group are writers and teachers of game playing,
it was decided to utilize those skills to create a themed site for
gamers to meet, learn, share and smile about their passion.
A games glossary is a good start to communicate this passion, but there
had to be something different to attract this experienced group
of internet browsers beginning with the name.

gameisms were suggested. gameisms was close, but 2 vowels together may

all the streategy. So I made a mental note to brush up on the game and
it some other time.
I also knew nothing about craps and baccarat. Video poker looked too
complicated, so I played slots only.
Recognizing that I was uneducated about gambling, I committed to learn
every game in the casino. I knew I would come back to Las Vegas, and I
wanted to have even more fun and profit the next time. I wanted to get
And I did just that!"
Since then, I have written books, ebooks, booklets, taught seminars and
provided hundreds of internet articles about intelligent gambling,
strategies, tips and gambling terms, however my games education was
Now, I can add video games to my education. I
have learned and researched this exciting virtual world, discovered the
unique gamerz jargon and am pleased to say have moved on from the N00b
Therefore, adding video games along with sports, casino and skill games
to the gamerisms.com site was an easy decision.
As the lead gamerist and webmaster, I am pleased to work with a group
of talented writers and game players. All of us hope you
enjoy our creation and join the group of passionate game players at
