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.

“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.

“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.

“Good at making the whole process fun and simple for newbies (and oldies)”

Our playwrights’ group got together for an evening of virtual D&D, led by Walt, and we had a blast! Our group was a mix of people who had never played before, as well as a few people who had only sampled the game or (like me) had last played 20+ years ago. Walt’s such a great storyteller, so of course he crafted a great adventure for us, but he also was good at making the whole process fun and simple for newbies (and oldies).

“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

“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.

“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

“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

“Easy, fun and immersive for everyone”

Walt is a master storyteller and DnD expert. He showed unwavering patience for those of us who were new to the game and made the experience easy, fun and immersive for everyone.

“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.

“Put us immediately at ease”

The group of people I played with began with varied degrees of comfort and knowledge about D&D, but Walt put us immediately at ease and created an environment in which we were all comfortable. With our imaginations transported, the group grew comfortable taking risks in the story, meanwhile becoming closer to each other in the process. My face and tummy ached from smiling and laughing at the end of the afternoon.

MJ

Half-Elf Cleric

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

If you have ever thought about trying D&D give FTATT a try! Our party had no experience playing and our DM, Walt, made sure our entire party had a blast and learned the game without getting bogged down in the rules. We are actually thinking about scheduling another session, just because!

“A story tailored exactly to our needs”

Walt ran a game for our regular group in order to give our DM a chance to play. He created a story tailored exactly to our needs, interests, and play style, and maintained the patience of a saint when we asked five thousand questions instead of getting on with the quest. It felt like we had been playing with him for years. A delightful experience all around!
