    [​IMG] I was thinking about doing a poll for this but that wouldn't be to accurate. So, instead, how long does your average session of D&D gaming last?
    10pm-5:30am. 7 hours and a half....phew.

    Also about 3-4 hours. If we have a bit shorter gaming session, we usually have a drink afterwards, and talk about things that don't have anything to do with D&D, and which we didn't discuss during the game.

    On average between 6 to 10 hours. I figure we lose about 1 hour for start up and food breaks. So call it 5 to 9 hours of quality RP.

    5-7 hours here, but I think that me(DM) and my friends aren't nearly as "professional" as you are....

    My group plays after school using our classroom but we only have about 2 hours before we have to go home so we find we need to go after we only just got going. Occasionally we try playing at people's houses for 5 hour streches and we find this works much better (we recently did an all-nighter and got through a whole adventure).

    We always do all-nighters when we're playing a world a friend of mine and I made, and for about 2-2½ hours when we are in our "youth club" (God, I hate that word)...
