Although there were a few long nights playing Vampire at my apartment back in the late 90s, the gold medal for longest session played has to go to any of various weekend-long sessions of Dungeons and Dragons played during high school, back in the early 90s.
Back then, we would get together in one of two houses, five to six of us, loaded with snacks and drinks, and just start playing. We’d play and play and then play some more. At some point we’d fall asleep, then wake up, and keep playing. We’d do that from Friday evening until Sunday afternoon, or Monday afternoon if it was a long weekend. There were only a handful of marathon sessions like this, and each of them was absolutely epic.
During the month of August, I am participating in #RPGaDay, an opportunity to talk daily about different topics related to games and gaming, organized by Dave Chapman, designer of Doctor Who: Adventures In Time and Space. I’ve been out of gaming for a while, so this is gonna be an interesting exercise.
