Polls & Comment Fest: Absentee Players

Inn-FightingWe’ve all had it happen.  The day of the game your forum or email flashes with the news:

“Sorry everybody, I can’t make it…”

  • “I gotta work late.”
  • “I can’t find a babysitter.”
  • “My kid/dog is sick.”
  • “My wife is PISSED and I need to suck up!”
  • “My car broke down.”

The Comment Fest

Usually my groups are good about canceling in advance.   Every once in a while, something will come up (or we’ll be too unfocused to play – sorry Hyb!) and we’ll play Rock Band or Guitar Hero, or flop on the couch to watch a movie.

In my old group, our gnoll had a Pothead Moment (similar to a Senior Moment!) and forgot to show up to the game.   Since the plot Loky had planned revolved around the gnoll, we settled on playing Inn Fighting.

Tell us about your group – what happens if the game is canceled?  What happens when someone unexpectedly doesn’t show?
