What are the best daygame blogs?

August 6, 2017

That’s the click-bait title out of the way, so let’s get to the point. A good while back, well over a year now, I wrote a post giving my advice on how to write a Player’s Journey blog. Some enterprising fellows took me up on that advice and it inspired some existing bloggers to post more [1]

“click-bait” you say?

I promised to feature the ones I liked, but then I just kinda forgot about it. Well, I’ve remembered. So, this is what I’ll do……. This is an open casting call for all of you on the Player’s Journey to inform my readership of your own humble efforts. Submit a short one-paragraph description of your blog, and a link. I’ll then edit this post (and my sidebar links) to neatly list them all so that enterprising fellow daygamers know what’s out there.

A few conditions are attached. Your blog will only be accepted in this list if it meets them:

  • No commercial sites. My goal is to help the community side of daygame here, not the business. If you have both a commercial page and a genuinely non-commercial blog, I’ll link the latter [2]
  • You must be producing original content based on your own daygame experiences. By this I mean you’re out daygaming and then telling stories or reflecting on your adventures. It’s fine if you’re a beginner, not getting laid, and feel like you don’t have any special insight. So long as you are trying to express your own player’s journey in your own words, you’re in. Such blogs are still valuable moral support for guys near your level. I won’t link Armchair PUA blogs [3]
  • I’m not linking blogs that cannibalise other people’s material or general community wisdom, even if you’re doing so with honourable intentions to help others. So if your blog is “Five steps to stand out on Tinder” or “What Is An Alpha Male” you are outside the narrow scope of this list.
  • I don’t mind if you follow material from other daygame theorists. This isn’t the Team Krauser list. I also don’t mind if you are critical of my material, so long as it’s not hating on me [4]

Here’s a starting list based on blogs I know fit the bill. If the proprietors of said blogs wish to change the one-paragraph summary (I wrote them from memory without double-checking), let me know in the comments.

Roy Walker Daygame – An early thirties Irishman living in London and taking his Euro Jaunts when he can. Getting laid and telling mostly war stories. Heavy statistical focus, tracking open/number/close/date ratios. Very much in the LDM style of game and writing.

Ricky Roma Blog – An early thirties office lad living in London and Euro Jaunting anywhere that might have Russian girls. Getting laid and telling war stories. Focus is narrative-based, expressing how it is to live the life. LDM style game and writing.

City Daygame – Three mid-thirties Brits living in London and forming a mini-rat pack for pick-up. Stories are varied between London and travel, each man writing under his own handle. A mix of daygame, nightgame and online. Mostly war stories but some reflection pieces. LDM style game and writing.

Seven Daygame – A French-born Asian man’s journey, starting in Ireland, then Tallinn and now St Petersberg. Lots of content and step-by-step field reports with lots of detail. Getting laid, too. Written in the LDM style.

Days Of Game – An American guy with a passion for Japanese jaunting. Very frequent posting, split between war stories (including field reports that don’t result in lays) and theoretical discussion. Quite wonkish at times. LDM style but also talks a lot about RSD material.

TD Daygame – A thirty-ish Pole in Warsaw writing a hybrid field-report / coaching blog in both Polish and English (separate sites). LDM style street game and a heavily technical focus, but some war stories.

Mickey Miller – A forty-ish Aussie living in Brisbane and jaunting to Asia. A mix between lay reports, inner game introspection, and theory. Probably the most personal blog for openly discussing inner game issues and private thoughts. LDM style.

VicVega – A forty-ish Italian nomad travelling around Central and Eastern Europe chasing skirt with a mix of nightgame and daygame. Lots of field reports and think pieces. He’s recently announced he’s going to focus on the latter.

The Alpha Teacher – A late-thirties Brazilian man playing poker and chasing skirt mostly in his home country. Suave was my first good daygame wing and features in my memoirs. One of the original London daygamers and Chateau RSG tenants. He still posts frequently.

Authentic Attraction – Another hybrid field-report / coaching blog, this time from two Aussies. A series of war stories and some reflection pieces.

Rusty Daygame – A new blog from a Kiwi guy doing the LDM style. Not much content yet.

Rambo PUA – I’m not sure if this blog is still active. An LDM daygamer writing field reports of his successes and failures.

Jimmy Jambone – Not very frequently updated, this is a blog opining on game and life, wrapped up in a narrative style of war stories. One of the original London daygamers and Chateau RSG tenants.

If you like reading war stories of chasing skirt you’ll love my memoirs Balls Deep, Deplorable Cad and Adventure Sex. If you don’t like paying to do so, check out the list above.

[1] I never stop with the grandiosity. Get used to it.
[2] There’s a grey area, such as TD’s blog, where he prominently mentions he’s a coach but puts up enough helpful free content that it’s not just a commercial site. So, I’ve linked him.
[3] I like some Armchair PUA blogs, but this list is Player’s Journey blogs which is a different category
[4] I draw the line if you voted Hillary or Bernie.

  1. Hey Nick. I know it’s a late post and I don’t expect to be put up on your website. But I’ve recently started this blog with a close daygaming friend thought I’d share… only if you have time. Thanks! [Thanks, I had a quick look and it seems to fit the bill so I’ve updated the list. K.] [http://www.authenticattraction.com.au

  2. OK, I’m biting. Englishman?! [Lol, it was actually an oversight this time. Kinda regret it wasn’t deliberate. Updated K.]

  3. Not sure our blog (citydaygame) is still up, if it is it won’t be for long. We’re retiring the blog but not from the Game.

  4. Hey Krauser, It’s not really a “player’s journey” blog because I didn’t start it until I’d been doing Daygame for three years, but my site is http://www.mortpua.com – I’ve hardly updated it for the last two years as I’ve been focussed on building a passive income business, which once accomplished will enable me to go on a permanent jaunt. However, there are lots of long in-depth articles on various Daygame-related topics which I’m sure will be of use to guys who read your blog.

  5. Thanks for the mention, Krauser. As someone that has gotten my act together in the shadow of your legacy (and very much based on what you’ve shared with the daygame community)… I was stoked to see my blog included here.

    Viva daygame.

  6. And while I’m at it… I would plug Cobrantula, as a great example of a players journey in the early stages.

    I love reading this guys blog… and for guys trying to “break out” into some level of success, he is an inspiration… not because of his daygame LRs (there are none), but because of his persistence. I love it.

    I think there are different types of readers out there…

    The guys that ONLY want to see “wins” and LRs. I think some of those guys know what they’re doing, and are looking for guys like them and maybe to pick up a tip or two. But there are also tons of “spectators” in this camp, “arm chair” types, for whom all this is only entertainment.

    And then there are guys that doubt they can “get across the river.” I bet that’s most guys… and they’re right, most guys will NOT make it across the river. I was fucking determined, but I wasn’t sure I could make it either. It’s for those guys that I make a point of featuring my “failures and doubts.” That for most guys, failure is part and parcel to winning. I think Roy Walker is a “god” right now… but sometimes I’m depressed to read his stats… thinking I’ll never be anywhere near that good. And I very likely never will hit his level of game… but I’m having a great time and fucking a lot of new girls off of cold approach. A bit of YHT in there for me, for sure. And failure paved the way for me. I think “honest” blogs are really helpful to help see that.

    Cobrantula (and Rivelino, for that matter!), are very good at sharing the “ups/downs”, including the downs. For the average guy that is NOT a spectator… that POV is very helpful.

  7. Good to see jimmy on the list 😉

  8. Roy & Ricky’s blogs are great, both solid & genuine guys I’ve met a number of times in London.

  9. Thank you for the mention and for the advice you gave me back in the January of 2016. It was a great help and definitely pushed me to find my own style.

    It’s also nice to see that there are many guys out there having success with LDM and posting their stories. Which kind of proves that the model works.

  10. Thanks for the mention. Blog traffic has picked up massively these past couple of days (no surprises there!).

  11. Only recently started the blog, more content to come.

    Cheers R

  12. Are there equivalent nightgame blogs? i.e. is daygame really better than nightgame? I might have a biased knowledge of game towards daygame. But if you get so many guys who do this well and hordes of guys going to different countries to run daygame on the locals. It has to be intrinsically better.
