What began as a casual conversation among three friends (trixie360, DirtyDiva & PMS Kitty) who happen to share both a love of gaming and 2 X chromosomes each, has blossomed into the global Xbox GamerchiX community. Founded in June 2006, Xbox GamerchiX has grown to over 5,300 members, all female, in under two years, adding an average of 250 new members each month. The chiX are a diverse group, hailing from 30 countries and range in age from just a few weeks old to the upper range of the double digits.
The GamerchiX community provides female-only forums to members, where they can find other chiX to game and chat with. GamerchiX across the globe fire up their Xboxes on Monday nights to participate in the XGX Ladies Night game.
