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.
“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.
“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.
“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.
“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.
“Our DM made sure our entire party had a blast”
“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.
