How are the GamerchiX and PopchiX connected?
The GamerchiX founders started PopchiX to give us a place to chat, host playdates, and coordinate meetups for ladies nights now that GamerchiX no longer has a home in the Xbox forums. PopchiX is managed by the GamerchiX founders and all content is provided by GamerchiX members.
How can I join a PopChiX Playdate?
The most important thing is to make sure the host can easily recognize you so at game time when you need an invite, they'll know who you are right away. There are a few ways to do that:
Reply to their playdate thread (linked below & in our announcements) to tell them you are interested in playing and post your gamertag. This is also the best place to ask them specific questions about their playdate.
If the playdate will be in an Xbox Live game, send the host a message from your gamertag to let them know who you are here and that you would like to play.
Send them a Private Message here telling them your gamertag.
We also highly recommend adding our three Xbox silvertags to your friends list: Popchix1 (now full)
-- You can use a silvertag to send and receive messages from other Chix without having to add them to your friends list. You can also see who's online at the same as you so that you can play with whoever is on. In order to get the best results you need to make sure that your profile will allow others to see you online. To do that, go all the way to the right on the dashboard. Select "Privacy." Set voice and text to allow everyone to contact you. Scroll down to "online status" and also set that to everyone. If you don't set them this way, other Chix on the silvertag will not know you are online and wanting to play.
What games get played during PopChiX Playdates?
Our members and moderators host playdates in a wide variety of games. Most recently these games have included: Battlefield (various titles in the series) Borderlands 1 & 2, Call of Duty (several in the series), Gears of War 3, Halo 3 & 4, Happy Wars, & Left4Dead 2.
