RPG a Day: The Longest Day

shokunin_clock16. Longest game session played

To be honest, I really don’t remember.  I’ve been playing role-playing games since 1983 and that’s a lot of game sessions. I know that sessions used to be longer when I was young; as age and time commitments increased, average game session length decreased. Moreover, a lot of streamlined rule sets now allow intense gaming experiences in as little as a couple of hours.

Would weekend-long LARP sessions count?  That would have to be my longest, I guess, and they date back to the mid-1990s with the Adventurers’ Inn.

  1. The longest semi-nonstop gaming I remember doing was when I was in the army. We started when the AFEES canteen opened and played Traveler for 36 hours. We had a couple of breaks moving to a guy’s apartment and then back to the canteen, but it was nearly nonstop gaming.
