I am going to study for a year in Bangkok. This may sound geeky but I am a hardcore gamer and I want to know where I can meet other gamers in Bangkok whilst I am there.

There are a number of places you can go. For a start try heading down to Metro Mall which is an underground mall by the entrance to Chatuchak Park MRT (underground) station.
A Mall For Gamers
There is a shoe shop, and a cafe, but all the other retail outlets down in this mall are dedicated to gamers: clothes, figures, cards, board games and software. There are also some gaming tables at the back of the mall. I am not sure what they were playing but there were quite a few people there last time I visited (which was a Sunday). I saw some foreigners as well playing with the Thais.
Near Chatuchak Weekend Market
Chatuchak Park MRT is the public transport access point to Chatuchak weekend market which is well worth a visit at the same time as checking out Metro Mall. Its a 5 minute walk away and there is plenty going on in there (free admission). They have some great food stalls serving Western and Thai food of all varieties inside the market.
