Been asked to GM for a large group (9 guys) at a reunion weekend of a bunch of old friends. Everyone has at least a little RPG experience, though for some it’s been as much as 10 years since they were big into the hobby. My first thought was split into smaller groups but that seemed to defeat the Guest of Honor’s purpose. No preference for one system or another so right now I am leaning towards World of Dungeons for a shallow learning curve, not requiring a ton of prep, and ease of playing to familiar tropes. Anybody have any stories to share about large group play (fun, horrific, or otherwise)? Suggestions for how to keep that many people engaged at once would be especially appreciated.
