D&D Virtual Play Weekends

The success of virtual play offerings at events such as D&D Live and D&D Celebration has shown a desire for more opportunities to share our love for all things Dungeons & Dragons. As we continue to evolve how we connect with one another, we’re excited to announce a new program for players worldwide to play D&D together on a regular basis.

Registration on the Yawning Portal will now open on November 4!

D&D Virtual Play Weekends is a monthly program that serves as a “mini-convention” for D&D tabletop play. We’ve partnered with our premier event organizer Baldman Games to bring this program to you!

Connect with your friends around the world and play D&D with some of the best Dungeon Masters anywhere. Bring your favorite D&D Adventurers League characters to play debut content, all from the comforts of your own home. And we have more features planned—stay tuned!

Each month, D&D Virtual Play Weekends will feature the following:

Games will be either two or four hours long—time slots may be longer to account for the virtual play format or if games run a little over on time.

All Dungeon Masters are vetted and approved by Baldman Games. If you signup to be a Dungeon Master for D&D Adventurers League games, you can also submit your own D&D adventures for play! Future events will open DM-submitted adventures for other DMs. Dungeon Masters are compensated by Baldman Games through sales of tickets at their table.

November 2020 Event Specifics


Our first theme for this event will be scary. Let’s keep the scary stories rolling into November! Consider our theme “in beta” for now. Themes are fun prompts to help inform DM-submitted adventures and will eventually apply to some D&D Adventurers League adventures as well!
