Well, that was fun

Promoted by another thread where most people seemed to be in about 14 different simultaneous D&D groups. How about you?

I did get up to being in 7 different games at one point this year.
Covid's push to online gaming had a big part in this. Last year I didn't play at all.


Thursday nights we alternate between 2 DM's
Sunday nights in a different group we were alternating between 3 different DM's (although I recently had to pull out of the game I was running so it's bakc to 2 game as well)

Once every couple of months I'll run a game for a few friends at my house.

I've recently started a game with some co-workers online every 2nd Friday, although this game is only meant to be the adventure and then it's going to finish up.


I said 3 but there is quite a lot of common players across the groups. I play in games with 5, 7 & 9 people but a total of 12 different people make up these groups, 7 of them play in 2 or more of the 3 groups.


I voted 2. I DM for my family and I also DM for a group of friends. However, that group sometimes switches out DM so I get to play - when that happens we tend to focus on one-shots, and try different games but we do have a group of characters we tend to gravitate back to for the other DM.

So, I dunno, maybe that counts as 3 groups.

Before we went on COVID hiatus, I DMed for a group of five players, but the six of us also were concurrently going through another campaign ran by my son. (So he's one of my players and I'm one of his.) Given it's the same six people, I guess my answer is two concurrent campaigns but only one gaming group.



the magical equivalent to the number zero
I voted 6, but 5 of those are play-by-post here on this forum. Never quite sure if they count; yes, they are D&D groups, but no, we don't get together at the same time (online or face-to-face).

Sadly I had to put 0 as I’m between games, trying to get a solo game started but it hasn’t yet. Not wanting to try and get a bigger table going until after covid, as I already spend all day in front of a computer.


I was running a single 5E game before Covid. Now I'm running 3 groups more or less (the original is on hiatus at the moment, though we have done some online play), and I'm playing in 2 more regularly. Apart from the original group, these are all pretty plot-light OSR style dungeon crawl type games. I'm running a 5TD & B/X hybrid (two different small groups, shared setting & some interaction between them, each weekly), and playing in an OSE (weekly) and a 1974 OD&D game (every two weeks).

I would be able to answer the poll a lot better with "how many active campaigns are you in?". Mainly because some of my groups have lots of overlap in who attends, but meet on different nights for different campaigns with different DMs among the group.

Asking groups, I am unsure if removing one player and adding another is sufficient to be a separate group. But it's very clear it's a separate campaign.

Of course, that could get into it's own trouble as we used to play every Friday but alternate campaigns to give the DMs enough time to prep, but with the same table.

Curious why limiting it only to D&D groups, as opposed to RPG groups.

Pre pandemic it was 3 but right now it is 2 but with a lot of over lap...

basically not everyone from my Tuesday night game (I run) went to the virtual table (Roll20) we ended the game store game that was 1 wensday a month but 1 of those players came virtual... the saterday night game I play most of us went virtual. How ever we picked up the woman from the game store on both nights and the Saterday DM who could not make it to play Tuesday nights can virtually. We lost 2 players on Tuesday and 2 players on sayer day (4diffrent friends) but kept same number of players just a lot more over lap


40th lv DM
One at the moment.

I've got a standing invite to join a 2nd that I'm considering. So probably two come Nov.
