RPGaDay - Day 16 - Longest Game Session Played




There was the one guy years ago who ran overnight games Saturday night usually around 8pm til whenever everyone passed out the next morning. It varied between Traveller, Twilight 2000, and Runequest. Call 'em 12 hour sessions. I only went to a few but those are definitely the longest individual sessions I can recall. I'm pretty sure there were a few similar occasions in the college dorm or summer nights back in high school too.

My once-a-month campaign that I play in runs 7-8 hours and that's fine - once a month!

For me, now, a 4-6 hour session is the sweet spot that still allows us to play for a decent amount yet still fit it in with work and kids etc.

I ran a 36-hour 1e game one time...it was a marathon session of I6 Ravenloft. Of course, I was 21 or 22 at the time.

That's a long one and they were so much easier to pull off back in the high school or college or right after days!
