What is GamerchiX?

GamerchiX is a social group for women who play video games. Our gender and our love of games brought us together but what keeps us together despite differences in location, age, lifestyle, politics, game platform, religion, and language is our commitment to the GamerchiX Manifesta. Read the whole thing here but the gist of it is “No Drama.” We respect ourselves and all women. We don’t hate, we don’t gossip (except about celebrities!), and we don’t judge each others’ choices.

GamerchiX is like summer camp without the mosquito bites. A sorority without the elitism and rufies. Girl Scouts without the merit badges*. You get the idea. If the thought of joining a women-only group fills you with dread and junior high flashbacks…you’re in the right place. There are no Mean Girls here.

The only membership requirement is that you be a female and you agree to our “no drama” rule. If you like to get into fierce online debates, or are intolerant of others’ opinions and choices, GamerchiX is not for you. There are plenty of places on the Internet to grind your axe.

*Not that we’re against sororities, summer camps or scouting.


So, what is PopChiX, then?

Excellent question! PopChiX is the evolution of GamerchiX. We love movies, television, books, comics, non-sticky lip balm, animals, kids etc. Our group has grown to encompass everything in the female world as well as gaming. While gaming remains our primary focus, we wanted to build a place where like-minded ladies could come and chat about everything that they love. So, come in, grab a chair and get chatting. We'd love to have you.

The PopChiX Founding Femmes!

Trixie 360:

Trixie360 (aka Christa Charter) has worked in the video game industry since 1995 and currently does community things at Xbox. Besides being a founder of GamerchiX, she also created the Xbox Ambassador program and a handful of Xbox LIVE events such as Xbox All-Nighter, Family Game Night, Music Monday, and Arcade Afternoon. She has three kids (17, 13 and a newborn) and is married to a United States Marine. When not gaming on the Xbox 360, DS, Wii, or PC, she can be found reading a book on her Kindle or making videos on her FLip.
DirtyDiva (aka Sara Nicholson) has been gaming since the age of seven. From programming Pong line for line to destroying Rad Scorpions in Fallout 3, she has loved everything about the evolution of gaming. She has been active in the gaming community since 2003 when she joined GamertagPics and later became an admin. She was also an Xbox MVP, had a piece published in EGM, was featured in ads for 1up, and was a member of the Xbox Community Team where she designed, wrote for and ran Gamerscoreblog.com as well as spearheading the MVP Program. She is a co-founder of GamerchiX, which pushed her to create this new place for members to visit and contribute. She loves dark chocolate, her English Bulldogs, Lizzie, Zoe and Tyson and watching trashy TV.
Kitty (aka Chloe Brown) got a late start to gaming at the ripe ‘old’ age of 19 with a healthy addiction to Zelda, after growing up in a household that held the opinion that “video games aren’t for girls.” She got involved in the Xbox community in 2005, has been an Xbox MVP since January 2006 and rounds out the triumvirate of the Gamerchix Founders. A multitasking Queen, her time is spent among the Chix, Halo, the PMS Clan, IM and her Facebook games!
Ichigo Sage (aka Drea Avellan/Pinksage) is an artist, graphic designer, writer, wannabe performer/musician, and social media enthusiast who applies her talents into all her passions. Drea has been writing about videogames and creating designs for websites such as Gamertag Radio, 360voice and The Blue Skittle Magazine since 2005. Drea decided it was time to chase her dreams and head to Seattle -- the videogame capital of the world. Still a resident of the Emerald City, Drea is still an active blogger for gearlive, writer for Hardcore Gamer Magazine, and now -- PopChix. Microsoft acknowledged Drea's efforts in the music community and awarded her with a MVP (Most Valuable Professional) award in 2007 for Zune. She now splits her time with her day job at Xbox, Internship at Sarathan Records, freelance design and whatever else you throw at her. Drea has an unreasonable love for live shows, fire, bacon, and monkeys.
