#RPGaDAY2015 is the brainchild of game designer Dave Chapman. Basically, each day in August there is a question about RPGs. This is day 16.
Longest game session played: In grade school and early in high school, especially during summer, we used to have these days-long sessions, interspersed with watching movies or even players doing something else while the GM planned further once the adventure had reached as far as he had written. I can’t really quantify how long some of those sessions ran.
In university, though, I know we had plenty of all-nighters, and one in particular sticks out. Right before my Russian history midterm in third year, we had a game that ran eleven hours. I did really poorly on that test. Luckily, the prof allowed me to make it up, because I was doing really well in the course otherwise.
I don’t know if I could survive an eleven hour play session these days. Might be interesting to try.
