D&D is the perfect game for a fun night with friends. Let us show you why.

First Time at the Table helps people create awesome moments together. We run online, pressure-free games of Dungeons & Dragons for 4-8 players, hosted by a professional game master who makes sure everyone has a blast. No homework, no books to buy, and absolutely no gatekeeping.

Sessions Resuming in June 2023

Due to an addition to the FTATT family, we’ll be on temporary hiatus for the first half of 2023. We’ll be back and better than ever in June, with a few additional surprises up our sleeves. Thanks for your patience in the meantime, and don’t hesitate to reach out via our contact form with questions.

How It Works

1. Gather Your Party

FTATT runs games for 4-8 players, so pick whichever friends and loved ones you think would be most helpful in finding a wizard or outsmarting goblins.

2. Pick Your Date

Book your 3-hour session here! We’ll follow up, ask a few questions, and start to prep a story with a beginning, middle & satisfying end.

3. Have an Adventure!

FTATT provides a helpful pre-game info packet. Then, at the appointed time, your party will be whisked away (via Zoom) to a world of magic, myth and silly jokes.

Support Good Causes

As part of our Setting the Table goals, 50% of all FTATT profits are donated to groups that advocate for a more diverse and inclusive world, in gaming and otherwise. Currently, we’re donating to TakeThis.org, a nonprofit that aims to decrease the stigma, and increase the support for, mental health in the game enthusiast community and inside the game industry.

“Get your start and learn how to play!”

Incredible experience. We had several people in our party who knew very little/nothing about the game. It was well planned, easy to follow, and fun. The perfect way to get your start and learn how to play!

Nina

Half-Elf Ranger

“Very friendly to new or returning players”

Walt’s approach to running the game is very friendly to new or returning players. He deftly weaves in streamlined mechanics to keep the story flowing, and rewards players for embodying the spirit of their character. The worlds he creates feel dense and lived in, masterfully drawing us back to the table to see what lurks around the next corner.

Trevor

Tiefling Cleric

“Really appreciated the care”

Walt was the person who introduced me to D&D. I was initially overwhelmed by the scope of it–how was I supposed to remember all the rules and make a character that would fit into this game? Walt was extremely helpful in guiding me through the initial character creation process and the basic rules of the game, plus DMing a fantastic game in which my friends and I (including a few other first-timers) had so much fun. Now I play weekly, as part of two regular campaigns with friends. I really appreciated the care Walt takes in helping people find the fun of gaming.

Annie

Gnome Wizard

“You’ll enjoy the game”

Walt runs a great session, guides well and balances players well. Whether you’ve never played, or have some experience, you’ll enjoy the game.

Geoff

Human Rogue

“Made D&D feel like it was for me.”

Walt made D&D feel like it was for me. I’d never played before and I was nervous. As a DM, Walt has a welcoming style filled with humor. I never really thought I’d enjoy D&D and I had a great time in my first game. I had such a blast that I asked Walt to design a D&D game for my husband’s surprise 40th birthday, which was a big hit!

Lila

Half-Orc Barbarian

“Well-run hijinks and laughs”

Walt is an expert at bringing out the best in a batch of new players. He made the process easy to jump into, guided us through creating characters, and arranged all the details for a fun evening. If you’ve got a group of folks who will appreciate some well-run hijinks and laughs, FTATT’s definitely for you.

Tyler

Half-Elf Warlock

“Perfect to get into D&D”

This was so much fun! Perfect to get into D&D with the amazing satisfaction of a completed mission!

Zaharis

Dragonborn Sorcerer

“Wonderful inclusive experience for players of any level”

Walt is an expert story teller, and creates immersive worlds to explore. Wonderful inclusive experience for players of any level.

Billy

Halfling Rogue

“Considerate and responsive!”

Walt did an incredible job planning a delightfully silly themed adventure for us based entirely on Taylor Swift songs. He was so considerate and responsive! The game was a blast and fit our wants and time frame perfectly. A++++, will definitely be coming back at some point. He wasn’t even phased by our moments of Too Much Knowledge, and he came up with the best puns.

Mary

Dragonborn Ranger

“Encouraged to bring the silliness.”

I absolutely loved it. The whole game really came to life and felt real! I loved being encouraged to bring the silliness.

Roni

Half-Orc Bard

“I felt like I had been playing all my life”

I was a D&D newbie. Walt gave a welcome smile and a tutorial in Elvish weapons and bad-assery. In no time, I felt like I had been playing all my life. Seriously, this was a lot of fun, and our entire group had a blast. Twenty-sided dice? Spells and charms? Dragons and demons? No Problem! Walt is a wonderful and inspiring guide who will encourage fair play and help grow your imagination.

Melinda

Elf Wizard

“A perfect gift!”

FTATT makes for a fun and engaging time with zero pressure or judgment on brand new players. My session was part of a present to a friend group, it’s a perfect gift!

Jon

Human Druid

“Walt’s gaming expertise and ability to improvise on the fly have made our games more fun and engaging than any I’ve played before.”

Andy (Halfling Rogue)

“If you are lucky enough to get to play D&D with Walt as your DM, then I’m jealous right now.”

Nina (Half-Elf Wizard)
