6: Building Local Fellowship https://docs.google.com/document/d/16lM ... ezu44/edit
PDF file: https://gaais.org/wp-content/uploads/20 ... owship.pdf
Two sections remain to be reviewed: Meeting with local newcomers, and Choosing a time and place

7: In the media, "Is Gaming Addiction Real?" is a controversial topic. Let's re-title our pamphlet of that name. https://gamingaddictsanonymous.org/wp-c ... n-Real.pdf

8: Twenty Questions pamphlet https://docs.google.com/document/d/1c0o ... PW8R8/edit
PDF file: https://gamingaddictsanonymous.org/wp-c ... rifold.pdf
The 20 questions are not under revision, but the surrounding text in this pamphlet is. Lit Com reviewed the text some months ago. It was adapted from another fellowship's pamphlet and kinda stank. We agreed it needed a rewrite. This is version 2.0
