I haven't played D&D (Dungeons and Dragons) in 20-25 years. However I recently have wanted to put together a game. How does one find local D&D enthusiasts?

I hope I posted in correct area if not please feel free to move it to the appropriate forum, thanks

I would try local comic book or hobby stores. They usually know or are the ones setting up games. Good luck

Game hobby shops are full of them, you know guys who play warcraft and hang around dusty tables at the back of the shop after hours...or reddit, you will probably find a whole section on D&D

Try game shops, especially if you have one located around a college.

Aside from finding an actual pnp group... which is damn near impossible these days

The best way to enjoy authentic D&D pnp experiences is with "Neverwinter Nights"

The original not the new crap that claims the same name...

you can get a copy on Steam

Meetup.com has tons of groups in my area. Many are run by game stores and some just folks. Also, the current DnD version isn’t what you remember. There is a game called Pathfinder that is basically DnD 3.5 that most of us old school folks play now. It uses the open license agreement and has developed all on its own.

I mention Pathfinder because I think the current versions of DnD aren’t that good so I play Pathfinder now instead with my group. Also, many high schools have DnD groups and the younger folks appreciate and old school DM with experience. I have played with them a few times as well.

Good call, I am pretty sure they use PathFinder in the show Harmon’s Quest. It’s worth checking out pretty hilarious at some points, it’s just the creator of Rick and Morty playing a table to RPG with his ex wife and friends.

PathFinder does look to be the ideal choice these days.

Wow, thank you all for your great replies!

I live pretty far from any game shops but next time I leave the mountaintop. I will look up pathfinder as well and check out reddit too.
