A few notes about these numbers:

  • This information is a best guess, and our records are sketchy. The number of players are definitely  wrong in places and we probably missed a few games.
  • Similarly, many of these times are not accurate. It may say 2pm but the game may have actually started at 1:30 or 3pm.
  • We had 6 tables but at some point we borrowed 3 more and had 9 games going on at the same time.
  • A significant portion of the GMs were people who had played games with us, loved GoD, and came back to run games for us!
  • Several games had audience members just watching.
  • We had a significant number of people who had never roleplayed before but we didn’t track those details.
  • We didn’t record how long games ran. They ranged from 30 minutes to 1hr, 2hrs, 4hrs, and 5hrs.
