Title: Gender Gap in Gaming?

Status: confirmed

Proposed by: Karen Babcock


Gaming is often seen a guy thing, but is it really true? How do men and women approach gaming differently? Does the type of game: card, board, video, arcade, PC or online matter? Do people play differently in same-sex versus mixed groups? What about when people don't know other players?
