Flexor the Mighty!

18/100 Strength!
Promoted by another thread where most people seemed to be in about 14 different simultaneous D&D groups. How about you?
1, we run two campaigns so a DM can get a break. I'm running a Greyhawk game using OSE and playing in a 5E game. Wed night is game night. Honestly that is enough D&D for me. My other hobby time is mini painting.

I put 3, but technically four with one on hiatus.
1.) Weekly Monday Night Game.
2.) Periodic Ad hoc game.
3.) Every other week Sunday game.

There is another game underway, but it went on hiatus when the Pandemic hit, and I have not talked to anyone in it in 6 months, so....


Currently in five, but two of those meet only once per month-to-six-weeks and another one is a temporary extra thing to keep a member's teenage daughter entertained while she can't do school stuff. So actual plays per week is usually three.

1 or 3.

1 is 5e - a new online game with people I met on discord. It's still very new, not sure how this is going to last.

Why "or 3"? My other groups - which are much more stable, I've known these people for years - are laying D&D "adjacent" systems. One (which I'm running) is the GLOG, the other (I'm a player) is with Pathfinder 1e, playing the excellent Zeitgest campaign.

So I don't know how to answer your poll @Morrus

I'm a participant in 3 games at the moment. We live in the Platinum Age of gaming....unfortunately it comes with a side of plague and non-ripened Honeydew Melon.


I voted 1 for in person.
I'm running 2 PBP games and participating in 1 on GITP. All are over 4 years old.


If Pathfinder counts, I'm in 3 groups (although with some overlap of players). If Pathfinder doesn't count, I haven't been in a D&D group since 2010.

Oddly, I find that I'm joining more groups but playing less D&D.

Even the group which has traditionally been D&D-centric has started to play other things more often. (Their current game being FFG Star Wars.)

Depends on what you mean by different groups. I'm running seven different groups of characters in my D&D game, but all of them have significant player overlap- there are only four players unique to one group. I also play in two groups; even given that all of the players and the DM of one of them are players in my games, I would count that as a different group than the one I DM. So depending on how you count, either ten, or three, or something in between.

I'm going to split the difference- there are essentially, sort of, 3 groups of players in my various games, so I'll say I am in 5 groups.


At the moment, 4.

Two are in Theros.

One is using OSR material for a 5E game (not really enjoying the clash, tbh(.

One is in my Kickstarted setting, SCAVENGER.


Not much D&D these days, but with COVID playing RPGs online is really my only source of socializing outside of work. I used to go to jiujitsu class, go out to the bar, and play a lot more video and board games with friends.

Currently playing in ongoing games of 5e, Mork Borg, Freebooters on the Frontier, Masks, Vampire, and Monster of the Week. Currently running Beam Saber. Some occasional Pathfinder Society online. A smattering of one shots. Most of this is with one group of about 20 people who play a lot of different games together.

Once I can get back to socializing in person games will probably go to once or twice a week.

It's not so black and white:
  • Two very active groups (both forced to go online because of COVID-19), one as DM, one as player
  • One not-so-active group, but still playing about once every 3-6 months
  • One group presumed dead, or at least constantly failing its death saves (no game on the agenda, players not responding to messages)
Man, this is the most meta D&D-Message-Board poll ever. Simple question asked about playing D&D, tons of responses questioning the definition of poll question. I love it :)


Lord Mhoram

Most of this is currently suspended due to covid, but I GM a D&D 5E game, play in a 5th Edition Champions game, and both GM and play in 2 Cypher system games (though those are solo, with the wife).


3 Weeknight weekly games (all online and two have been for years) and an every-other-weekend game that was in person before the thing happened.

Plus a Pathfinder game that's so irregular I didn't count it.
