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.

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.

“The perfect way to jump back into the game I love!”

Not having played D&D since college I was looking for a way to get back into it. FTATT was the perfect way to jump back into the game I love! We all had a great time! The Dungeon Master was very friendly and knowledgeable.

“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

“A safe, no-judgement zone”

Prior to FTATT, I had always wondered what D&D would be like, but didn’t want to join friends on their campaigns because I worried a newbie would be an imposition. FTATT provided a safe, no-judgement zone to learn the game and ask questions!

Sam

Triton Cleric

“Absolutely blew my expectations out of the water”

I was terrified of playing D&D due to the expansiveness of the lore. I knew my friends and I would be interested in playing but I had no idea where to begin. Walt absolutely blew my expectations out of the water in terms of introducing my friends and I to the mechanics. The story he generated was simple enough to follow but had enough depth to genuinely suck us all in. I would 100% recommend FTATT to anyone interested in DnD regardless of experience.

Christian

Tiefling Ranger

“Engaged the ideas and playstyles of everyone”

I watched Walt walk a novice player through a first play session as he also engaged the ideas and playstyles of the more experienced folks at the table. Balancing these different needs while also creating a memorable adventure is no easy task, but he was able to do it *with funny character voices* too, just adding to the degree of difficulty.

Shane

Gnome Druid

“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

“The perfect person to guide you”

If you’re new to D&D, Walt is the PERFECT PERSON to guide you.  I knew nothing when I started playing the game, and as an expert, he’s generous, kind, and HILARIOUS.

Kate

Halfling Rogue

“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

“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

“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

“Now I understand!”

This was the first time I ever really played D&D. Earlier attempts to explain the game to me didn’t work, and I didn’t understand why people liked it so much. Now I understand!

Gifford

Gnome Druid

“Fun and accessible to all levels of player.”

I had a great time! Walt made the story fun and and accessible to all levels of player. Plus, who doesn’t want to be a giant frog?

Sam

Dwarf Druid

“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)

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

Billy (Halfling Rogue)
