CAR-PGA Guidance for Tabletop Play

This information is current as of 03/29/20.

The COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak is an unprecedented scenario echoing some of the most dire predictions of post-apocalyptic role-playing settings, but it is no game. We’re trying to “flatten the curve” of emergency and medical visits due to the outbreak through “social distancing,” but to do that requires gamers to change their plans. To that end, the CAR-PGA board has released official guidelines on how to manage tabletop play in an era of social distancing. You should always follow local medical and regional guidance first.

These recommendations are made with the full acknowledgement that there is significant financial risk in canceling plans—but they must be weighed against the lives they may save. We’ve attached an infographic for easy reference.
