#RPGaDay 2016 Day 27: Most Unusual Place or Circumstance I've Gamed

Probably when I first started gaming there were some unusual circumstances and places.

My first gaming group met at the Howard Whittemore Memorial Library in my hometown of Naugatuck, Connecticut. I was in middle school at the time and they hooked us up with a meeting room located near the children's section of the library. Of course we always got yelled at for being too noisy to the point we were pretty sure the sound of dice rolling would earn a "shhhh". Admittedly, it was a library... It did get a little bit awkward when part of the room was dedicated to storage and we had to maneuver our way to the table. I did make some friendships which lasted for many years.

I also remember occasionally being granted permission to play in study hall back at City Hill Middle School. By then we'd mastered the technique of rolling on hardcover books to muffle the sound of the dice rolling. Back in the day we had to have book covers on our textbooks. Fun fact - a Dungeon Masters Guide with a book cover on it is indistinguishable from a textbook from a distance... The study hall gaming typically involved a single encounter rolled on the spur of the moment. I still feel guilty about killing that unicorn...
